Studio-Quality Effects and Digital Outputs
In addition to amazing sounds, the XV-5050 includes three independent effects processors with everything from 24-bit reverb to chorus, plus 90 multi-effects including COSM® Guitar Amp Modeling. And with 24-bit converters and digital outputs in S/PDIF and optical formats, your music will be reproduced with the utmost clarity and detail.
Easy USB Connection
If you make music on a PC, you’ll appreciate the XV-5050’s front panel USB port. Just load the USB driver from the included CD-ROM and suddenly MIDI cables are a thing of the past. (Of course, the XV-5050 is equipped with standard MIDI connections as well.) Now you can get XV-quality sounds with the simplicity of USB.
