Audiofanzine FR's review

E-MU Xboard 49
(Originally written by barbilux/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
I was looking for a compact keyboard to play my hardware and software synths (I already have an 88-key model).

This keyboard provides after touch (very good) but I miss a breath controller connector. Sustain and CC7 (volume) use the same input connector so you'll have to choose one.


Good playing feel, which doesn't mean a lot, the dynamic response is more important and I like the way it is adjusted because the playing is very responsive!

Many functions and it's rather difficult to remember all of them. The small three-digit display is not enough and you'll have to search in the user's manual pretty often.

The function buttons are convenient.

I don't use the software.


I've been owning it for two years but I don't use it that often because I placed it on my DAW's desk and I don't like to play when the keyboard is too high. I can't say if it's sturdy but I think it was conceived for home use rather than stages. The plastic keys don't seem to be very sturdy...

It's ok to trigger instruments in my DAW but a five-octave keyboard would be better to play with both hands.

I like the USB connector and the blue LEDs.

You get a very comprehensive Midi interface at an affordable price. I had no problems with it in spite of all the things I read about its reliability.

- The possibility of having a 49 Keys for less than 150.
The configurable potentiomtres 16 of 16 patches Different.
The "Latch" which is handy for some live.

- The Midi based "Stand alone"
The USB (no power required supplmentaire when you connected the computer)


- It is more than enjoyable, never seen one as a touch, especially in this price range.
It is ideal to play my fawn and yet I am demanding this trs l.

- Pretty simple, I find relatively easy to program the fawn patches without even reading the manual.
Rglages the rest a little sharp and the other functions that I have not had time to test.

- The select the MIDI channel and patch is simple, and also not really need instructions for
how to find, with the intuition it is easily ;-)

- The manual "Fran" (download on the site) is pretty clear.


- 2 days (yes I know this is trs short and an update of this opinion will do next)

- Most of Xboard:. Easy to use
. Easy to install (same attention right to choose the right drivers not those
Windows automatically chooses otherwise impossible to make updates to
the Firmware)
. The many opportunities offered by these functions (8 patches and curves
VLOC programmable modes "Channel 16, Latch, Snapshot & Bypass")
. The possibility of doing rglages by the software "X-Board Control".
. Touching, really gnial ;-)
. The Bundle comes with software.
. The price

- Les - the Xboard:. Poor finish plastic base of potentionmtres.
. The volume slider that eventually dtach

- Yes MODELS some, but not until the sduit not me.

- Report qualitprix: EXCELLENT!

- Definitely.
