Being an entry-level keyboard, the usual luxuries such as aftertouch and an internal power supply have been omitted, and it lacks an arpeggiator or a sequencer, however it more than makes up for this in sound. In addition to its General MIDI sound set, the X5D comes loaded with two banks of preset sounds that can be loaded alternately, however you can overwrite the preset sounds and store up to one hundred program sounds and one hundred combination sounds of your own. The preset sounds vary widely, from complex pads and SFX sounds, to pianos, organs and orchestral instruments. Some of these sound dated in this day and age, the piano sound is a little on the thin side to say the least, but the string, pad and organ sounds can still hold their own against much newer keyboards!

Based on state-of-the-art PCM technology, the AI 2 Synthesis System is technology developed by Korg to capture the true essence of acoustic sound for use in a tone generator. With the X5DR, you will enjoy a richness and variety of sound at a level of excellence that meets or exceeds the quality of audio CDs. These Multisounds allow you to simulate a range of acoustic sounds, from drums and percussion to piano, guitar, and trumpet. In fact, the X5DR can generate a virtually endless variety of sounds.

You can also add a rich expressiveness to a performance by altering the sound using the key touch velocity, or by adjusting the brightness of the sound or the depth of the vibrato using MIDI modulation messages. Combinations of multiple Programs and features in Multi mode will help you achieve such effects. You can store your own Programs in Bank A. Programs comprise the basic sounds of the X5DR. You can play different Programs in a song; you can even layer them in Combinations.

Up to eight Programs can be assigned to each Combination. Combinations are powerful sound tools, especially for live performance. The Combination types layer , split , and velocity switch provide various sound structures. You can create two Drum Kits by assigning different drum sounds to each key on the keyboard.

Assigning a different drum sound to each key allows you to create a wide variety of rhythm parts. You can load the sounds stored in Presets a and b into the Program or Combination memory for immediate use. The Preset Load operation loads data from all preset sounds to one particular sound slot. The versatile editing functions of the X5DR let you create original sounds very easily.

On the other hand, it is quite a bit of work to create a good sound from scratch. Given such circumstances, Preset data can be very handy. You can use the data immediately after you load a sound, choosing from a broad selection. You can also use Preset data as the raw material for sound editing. You may be able to glean a few ideas for sound-making from the Preset sounds. These effects are very useful when you want to create a new sound or add dimension to a sound.

Some effects are actually a combination of two effects. The effects processors allow you to apply effects and edit the sounds directly on the X5DR, instead of connecting external effect units. Placement settings are useful for processing the sound and adding width or depth to the sound. Each Program and Combination can have its own effect settings. A wide range of scale types accommodates numerous musical genres In addition to the conventional equal temperament and pure temperament types of tuning, a wide variety of scales is also available.

These scales cover a broad range of musical genres, from classical to various ethnic music, and prove extremely useful in the creation of realistic simulations of various instruments.

Western music generally uses a twelve-tone equal temperament that allows you to play in any key and to transpose the key easily. It can also play GM songs performance data designed for a GM tone generator. Using original Programs in Bank A, or utilizing Key Window and Velocity Window parameters, you can perform high-quality ensemble pieces. You can also combine different Programs and play original Programs via computer.

Equipped with a personal computer interface The built-in computer interface enables a direct connection to the serial port of your personal computer Apple Macintosh or IBM-PC compatible.
