Korg MicroSTATION Vs Korg X-50 Keyboard Synthesizers

Korg MicroSTATION Vs Korg X-50

I'm looking for M50 style sounds, arpeggiator, midi controller capabilities, joystick. I'm not too bothered by the mini keys.

I've checked the spec on both, but I wanted to get some expert opinions in.

Any thoughts?

Hi Allan123,

The microSTATION will sound more like the M50, since its EDSi sound engine is based on the M3/M50. The X50 uses the HI2 engine from the Triton series.

Thanks for your consideration, hope this helps.

Hey Rich, just out of curiosity, what's the difference between EDS and EDSi? I understand the ROM is smaller so there's going to be fewer (and compressed?) samples, but is there anything else? I'm not planning on ever buying a microstation or a PS60 (but may get an m50-88 one day...maybe) so don't put any great effort into finding an answer if you don't know

I've just sold a MicroKorg - and I'm close to raising the funds for the M50 :-)
I'm going to wait on and buy what I really want to buy!

EDS adds per-timbre EQ, Drive, and Low Boost parameters, but the sonic fidelity is exactly the same. The ROM itself isn't compressed, just smaller.
