Korg releases new M50 Synthesizer Workstation

Weighing in at just fifteen pounds is the fiery new KORG M50, ready to take on all contenders! Incredible new sounds; fat and juicy combis, splits and layers; a plethora of ace effects; dynamic Drum Tracks; enhanced poly-arpeggiators; classic sequencing tools, a solid, confident keybed; up-to-date SD storage; companion editing software and our famous TouchView interactive display – it all adds up to an invigorating and sexy keyboard instrument that could only come from KORG.

– Three keyboard models
The M50 is available as three models with different keybeds: the 61-key M50-61, the 73-key M50-73, and the 88-key M50-88. Both have been designed with careful attention to keyboard feel. The M50-61 and M50-73 use a new semi-weighted Natural-Touch keyboard that allows expressive performance on a fast, synth-action feel. The M50-88 uses Korg’s RH3 (Real Weighted Hammer Action 3) keyboard acclaimed for its graded-action grand piano-like touch, making it the ideal choice for a stage piano as well.
