Korg M50 Workstation Synthesizer
61-key model keyboard synthesizer + FREE bag
The Korg M50 is a brilliant new synthesizer distilling the sonic essence and functionality of the M3 series into a seriously portable and affordable new instrument.
Korg's over 20 years of design expertise in workstations has enabled Korg to make the M50 the perfect writing and performing keyboard for all musicians. The M50 is packed with the latest sounds and functionality that Korg have developed in their many years of producing synthesizers and music workstations.
It features a light-weight compact design that makes it ideal for live performance, band practice, and especially easy transportation. The 88-note M50-88 uses the grand piano feeling RH3 keyboard, making it an ideal choice for a stage piano.
The M50 uses Korg's latest EDS (Enhanced Definition Synthesis) sound generation system, the technology used on the M3, delivering exactly the same stunning sounds and effects. Each voice contains a powerful oscillator section that can use up to 8 stereo multisamples per voice (2 oscillators, each with 4-stage velocity switching/crossfading/layering), as well as up to 4 filters (2 filters each with four modes and four routings), 2 amps, 5 LFOs, and 5 EGs.
The abundant 256 MB of ROM (when calculated as 16-bit linear) provides a total of 1077 multisamples (including 7 stereo multisamples) sampled at 48kHz as well as 1609 drum samples (including 116 stereo drum samples). These PCM sources were sampled using the best recording equipment and edited with expert care to deliver an incredible palette to create sounds with.
The filter section lets you use 2 filters for each oscillator. These filter types include low pass, high pass, band pass, and band reject modes, and they can be routed individually, in series or in parallel, and even includes a superb 24 dB mode.
The amp section provides a driver circuit that can bring a harder edge to your sound, and a low boost to add big bottom when needed.
An advanced key tracking generator can be used to adjust filter and amp behavior according to ranges of the keyboard, giving sounds a level of nuanced control across the whole range of the keyboard.
The EG (Envelope Generators) produce time-variant change from the beginning to the end of the sound, and allow you to tweak the curve at each stage (attack, decay, slope, release) in eleven steps, and unprecedented amount of control. This enables the M50 to create simulations of acoustic sounds where the tone and volume undergo complex time-variant changes, as well as highly detailed re-creations of vintage synthesizer sounds. There are 18 LFO waveforms available for you to select from. These can be further shaped to produce the perfect modulation by adjusting parameters such as the waveform starting phase and amplitude shift.
The AMS (Alternate Modulation Source) function gives you a wealth of modulation possibilities; with a total of fifty modulation sources, you can be sure to find what you need, or use the AMS mixer to apply multiple modulation sources to a single parameter, or even process the modulation source itself to obtain precise control over your sound design.
There's an independent 3-band EQ available for each program, the drum track, and each of the sixteen timbres/tracks, so you can make separate and detailed tonal adjustments to achieve the perfect mix without having to use effects. The effect section which adds the final coloration and space to the overall sound contains 5 insert effects, 2 master effects, and 1 total effect. In addition to delay and reverb, you can use modulation-type effects such as chorus, phaser, and flanger, dynamic-type effects such as a compressor and limiter, and amp modeling effects driven by Korg's proprietary REMS modeling technology, giving you a total of 170 high-quality effects. There are also 2 common LFOs that can be used between different modulation effects. For example you can use a single LFO to synchronize the phaser and flanger used by different timbres. The effect dynamic modulation function (Dmod) gives you precise and wide-ranging realtime control over tonal changes and effects.
The M50 contains 608 programs, 384 combinations each consisting of up to sixteen programs, and 32 drum kits used as oscillators for drum programs. From real acoustic instrument to vintages synths and imaginative textures the M50 delivers the wide range of great sounds you expect from a Korg keyboard.
For the all-important piano sounds, 3-stage velocity-switched stereo samples are programmed in conjunction with samples of the damper resonance, producing the most natural sound ever heard from a synthesizer. There are also mono piano programs for use on stage, as well as programs using the waveform memory of the classic Korg SG-1 Sampling Grand, which is still acclaimed by artists around the world.
The Korg M50 Gig Bag is designed specifically for the 61 note version of the Korg M50. Includes a front pocket for accessories.
