The X5 is a 32‑voice polyphonic, 16‑part multitimbral, General‑MIDI compatible digital synth sporting Korg's AI2 synthesis — the same method as that found on the 01/W and subsequent Korg synths.

SYNTHESIS 32 voices polyphony based on 16 bits (AI) synthesis engine (6mb ROM) with 340 multi-samples and 164 drum PCM including pianos, strings, brass, winds, guitars and basses plus assorted drums and percussion. The machine handles 16-part multi-timbral channels.

MEMORY standard 100 programs and 100 Combinations ROM + 100 programs and 100 combinations in RAM memory (no external storage).
A X5 Combination is made up of several programs each assigned to a timbre, up to a maximum of eight programs and they can be combined in several ways: by layer, by sharing the keyboard with zones comprising different programs (split) or by layering programs which will be triggered according to a set velocity (VSW). The second special bank is specially dedicated to General MIDI and includes the 128 standard sounds as well as 8 drum kits; however, you cannot modify it.

EFFECTS two digital multi-effect processors, each producing an effect to be chosen from among the 47 different algorithms available (e.g reverb, chorus, leslie, delay, flanger) they are organized into three groups and that one of these groups allows four independent effects to be used simultaneously. The parameters are editable and can be stored with programs and combinations
