Korg M50 Description

The Korg M50 effectively replaces the relatively unloved Korg TR series (TR61/76/88), and incorporates much of the sound generating capabilities of the more expensive Korg M3.

A huge step forward in sound generation complexity over the TR series, the M50 is mind bogglingly good value with it's richer sounds and drum track. It's also easier to use with it's larger, more usable touchscreen interface, which makes the sequencer in particular a dramatically more useful proposition. Further, as well as being a standalone synth & 16 track sequencer, it can also be run as 16 plug-ins in your s/w DAW with little processing load on your PC/MAC. A real gem.

Available in 61, 73 & 88 key (weighted) keyboard formats, wrapped in a new, 'raised back panel' keyboard design.

The smallest of the 3 keyboards, the M50-61, wieghs just 15lb.
