The best part of using the Korg M 500 is that it is so much fun to use. It is small and compact, it will give you some great sounds in such a small unit. Plus they are going for pretty cheap. The great effect on this board is the random vibrato effect. It will really give the sound you are using it on a punch and make it sound “crazy”. I love using that effect and have built a lot of songs from just using a sound with that effect. Then run it through a mixer and put it into the computer so I can eq it some because it will be rather sloppy trying to mix when it sounds so crazy. But that is by far my favorite thing to do with the Korg M 500.


The Korg M 500 is one of the easiest to use vintage keyboards you will ever have your hands on. Its so much fun and its very small. You can throw this thing in a bag and take it with you where ever you go. It also looks pretty cool to with the retro wood grain look. So just the style alone will look great in your studio.


There where a lot of hit songs in the 80’s that used synths from the Korg M 500. With a little tweaking and maybe running it through an effects processor on your pc or mac you could get some cool stuff that could give you a hit today. The possibilities on this keyboard are endless and on such a compact unit. I am not a fan of the brass sounds though, they just don’t sit well with me. Very thin sounding trumpets.


Its great, affordable and compact. I don’t regret having it, and if something happened to mine I would find another one and get it right away.
