Music means a lot to me. I have Korg X5, Yamaha CS1x, Behringer Eurorack

MX 802, 133 Mhz PC running Cakewalk Pro Audio 6, Samson S12 (mike),

AWE-32 and lots of weird stuff (like homebuild soundgenerator) in my ho-

mestudio. I've almost reached the recording deal (I'm really close now).

I like the X5, because it's the first synth I got. Because I didn't have any

other soundsources two years ago. I soon found out how to play around

with it.

X5 gots really nice organ sounds, and marcato-strings are quite good.

It doesn't have analoque-type of sounds, but it has nice sounds any-

way (I just love those organs). It's a good synth for cheesy house-organs.

You can even make squeal like a pig, if you start to play around with the

distortion-effect (I've done 303-sounds with it).

If you want a versatile and flexible synth, but you don't have much money,

buy X5.

My Korg x5 was my first synth and a great introduction to Midi.

I'm alwats discovering something new about it.

In fact each time I do i get a new idea.

I've sold four songs to TV stations and Advertisers done just on

this synth alone.

Nobody noticed.

The best feature of this little keyboard is its size. So light, you jus put it

under your arm and simply go. Other good features are the synths, the pads,

the strange sounds, and, of course, the so easy-to-program korg structure.

Some old korg sounds are present, which alows you to remember your old M1,

(I'm talking about X5-D also), and the effects set are pretty good.

The only problem I see is the keyboard; Korg could have put it a little more

heavy, once it's keys have the smallest size. I use it for live performance

almost every day and I think it's a little brave keyboard.
