20 Most Recent Korg M50 61-Key Music Workstation Keyboard - M5061 Questions & Answers

Are you connecting to the laptop and using it as a midi controller? You can record midi notes from the keyboard and send them to your laptop via USB using any midi sequencer program (reason, logic, etc). Create a midi track, select the input of that track as your keyboard, then hit record to play some midi notes. To hear what you record, you have to set the output of the midi track to whatever midi sounds or instrunents you have installed on your laptop.

If you are trying to record the actual audio sound the keyboard makes, use an audio program such as cubase, sonar, audacity, pro-tools, and either mic the keyboard, or connect one of the other audio outputs (1/4" TRS) to an audio input on your DAW, and record an audio track that way (as opposed to a midi track).

My opinion is that the capacitors are in the power supply. If they get old, they leak (electronically) and pull down the power output of the supply. They will be larger than any of the other capacitors in the circuitry.

Well looks like you have a capacitors problem. I had this problem too and a friend soldered two new capacitors in place. You can find information on the korg forum but most important is to know where the capacitors are located

Hello, To record into a lap top you will need a USB mixer, your audio output from the SYNTH will go into the mixer, you use the midi USB cable from the mixer to the lap top. this will help pre amplify your synth to normal audio levels. hope this helps.

Hello, You may want to reset your machine, all data and pre loaded programs, for this you must turn on your M50 press the global mode button, click on the top arrow next to (basic) select option 2, load pre-preloaded demo data, you then choose all (PCG and demo songs). press OK. Your Korg will re install all factory samples, data and settings. Once completed It will then instruct you to turn off your machine. give it a minute or so to self upgrade before turning it back on, once you turn it back on you should see updating panel notifications right and left, you should be able to use all of the sounds and combi's available for M50. that's a factory reset. I hope this helps, Have a great day.

Hello, I own a Korg M50 myself and I had the same issue, its a quality control issue at their factory but, I may have a solution for you I found at a Korg forum. the issue is with these teeny cables inside the synth. you open the rear panel and firmly press each teeny cable into the terminals again and re attach and secure them firmly just finger push them all into their teeny sockets. this should stop the freezing I tried it the synth played all night with out freezing . I hope this helps other wise the solution with the capacitors is simple you order a new mainboard but they run about 400 plus. but try my solution it may work for yours this answer comes from a korg tech, he stated 90% of this freezing issue he has encountered has been these loose teeny cabling adapters, hope this helps, Have a great day..

110 will not damage it, just will not work, if built in power supply should say on the rating plate next to power input the voltage it is able to take, a lot of units are rated 110-240v some will have a small switch to change over from 110 to 240. Other than that, you will need to get a step up unit to supply 240 from 110 just a small transformer unit.
