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.

I am a software engineer and music is my hobby. I use the Korg-X5 often and I am very satisfied with it. If You want to make Your special sounds, the best way is to use computer running the Sound editor software, even this software could have been made much better. A little software problem is allso using the TO HOST interface under WIndows95. It needs a special, non standart sequence by the instalation.

I used to carry TWO of these under my arms. Size is great for gigging, and quite reliable too. The sounds are okay for live use in a pop / rock situation. When the guitars / bass/ drums are blaring, the X5's organ / piano and synth sounds can rally match up well in terms of volume. Solo, however, the deficiencies are glaring. The pianos are too obviously fake, the stings sound dirty, and the basses don't have balls. Only the organ sounds have some sort of character, but then you still have to run them though a good leslie effect as the onboard rotary speaker is not too good. As an SMF player, it's okay. But personally I kinda vomit all over those GM, soundcanvassy sounds (why do they have to put a GM bank anyway ?). When I left the band and decided not to play live anymore, I sold both. I now have an Emu Proteus FX (which I re-bought), an MC-303, a CS1x and a U220.

I volunteer my time for little theater sound production. There have been times when I wanted a particular sound or effect and was able to use my X5D's programmable capabilities to create just what I wanted. Using Cubase to combine Midi with audio, I have been able to produce some background accompaniment that I am quite frankly, very proud of. I wouldn't trade my X5D for the world. My only complaint (which I currently chalk up to my naves level in Midi) is not being able to play back multi-track Midi recordings and get the numerous, beautiful, rich, Korg sounds (or ones I have programed) instead of the the standard Midi 128 sounds.
