-Has several banks of sounds for a total of over 1000 sounds (sometimes redundant by the way). The sounds are well squence for GM, but are gnral means.
Two effects-blocks Fully controllable via MIDI and can be arranged several fawns (1 parallle, parallle2 serial)
Fully-editable sounds and effects using the Korg AI2 synthse
-MIDI IN / OUT / THRU, TO HOST, outputs standard analog stereo RCA between IN + (IDAL to connect directly to another expander)
-There are publishers ddi PC freeware (NS5R EDITOR) that can load and save programs and combis

Strengths edit sounds
Weaknesses quality sounds (piano too late my taste, low impact .... but without some original sounds), but the price is okay but in the CATEGORY I prfre the Rolands JV 1080 or 2080


-A little complicated to beginners, but especially in APRS trs flexible MIDI
-For the regulars of the KORG synthse AI2 is easy
The manual is correct, although translated into French
-The little extra is the charter of MIDI implementation Describes all that can make the machine via sysex (for me it is the top because it helps even tweak the functions innacessibles)


Sounds are made for GM squence. I find that it lacks a little "'personalitquot, but the NS5R made me a standard service for 5 years and I still use it. For a little touching up against in the piano (I like the old piano of M1 found in the NS5R ...), you can get something better

Ngatif a point on the LCD screen, the lighting is trs Systm fragile (mine is suddenly turned red before s'teindre compltement). This does not affect the functionality but s'avre more difficult to read what is going on the screen without a lamp. many users have this PB. KORG did not provide the above.


I use it for 5 years without Pb except retro-eclairege of the screen.
I: FLEXIBILITY compatibility XG / GS / GM
I do not like: piano, back-lighting

If this silent again (5 years ago ... well sr) I would do the purchase. Against it by now if we want to sound more "real", we must turn to more Chres modules like the Roland XV or better Kurzweil PC2R I which I LOVE
