Korg NX5R
1 / 2 Rack
1490 + 384 sound combinations ditables easily with a 64-voice polyphony gnrateur on his Korg and 32 votes out of the Yahama
1024 Effects of 8 banks of 128 (including a bank ditable)
Expander is compatible GM / GS and XG.
Connectors: Output L / R Jack 6.35, VCA input R / L (an instrument used to transmit the output of the output expander), MIDI In, Out and Through, headset and PC to host.
Software Included + Midi cable (cable To Host option)


The NX-5R is easy to use, the classification makes sense according to standard GM.

The manual for the use of oscillators is generally KORG trs clear. To use the card Yamaha, that's another story: we get it.

For those using an expander to play and the APRS dfouler evening job, I deprecated the NX-5R: changing effects and sounds, or other filters is super boring! It is difficult to make changes while playing (like to lower the sound one octave during the game, has taken three hours, impossible to live). In short, the expander résumé is easy to use, nothing complicated but it is anything but ergonomic!


Same if there are good sound, the quality of audio output is zero! Most DSP altre sound, continuous edit.

I really do not AIM!


View the time I put the selling price and the poor as I sold it, I regret to have normment buy this thing. For beginners, a must be gnral but if you are demanding a minimum, we must look more upscale (or other brand).

Since then I have a JV-1080: it is 2 million times better !!!!!!! And all levels, ergonomics, sound, etc ...

Korg NX5R
It is a rack model.
It has its 1490, 184 effects and 53 drum kits.
They are all edited on PC and Mac, with all sequencer (Cubase, Logic Audio, cakewalck etc ...)
The connection cable is to noon or host.


The general configuration is as simple as possible by a screen readable and simple.
The edition takes a little more than practice (approximately 1-2 months to get out suptilités master the device).
Nevertheless, the composition is controlled to the level of sound and effects in a few days ...
The manual is clear in the sets (as all the manuals :-)
Me personally, I do have almost never used (except for minor adjustments).


I found this unit to sonnorités excellent!
But to truly mastered the potential must be used to take out the internal effects ...
At realism is really good, but it gets even better if applied to the effects.
The effects are effective if applied with finesse (although there have in-house, an automatic system that connects the sound to its original effect)
Sound at all is correct.
Although it is clear that the brass and piano may not be as realistic as a Roland at 10000 F. ..


I use it for 1 year now with me.
+ What I like is the diversity of sounds of high quality and good made.
What I like least (and that's why I want changed), I need instruments with orchestral sounds (piano, violin, drums, etc ... tompette) hyper realistic (+ expensive but also
I acquired on the advice of a colleague who had and who had others too. I also looked on the net all the tests that he was putting 10 out of 10 in all, prices are related.
The value for money is fabulous, the device really great opportunities and great sound pro.
With the experience and under (30000F), I took the newt, the trinity and 1 or 2 Roland ;-)!
