Korg X50 and a midi controller-good combo?


I am new to synths, and I am getting ready to purchase a Korg X 50 and I have some questions...
I know that the X50 doesn't have onboard sequencing capabilities-or at least I'm pretty sure it doesn't...
anyways, I love the X 50-it's the right price for me- for a starter synth,
the right size-
I plan on taking it with me quite a bit- and from what I've heard and seen, has got some great samples/sounds-
I want this synth!!!, but I want to be able to write tracks/sequence/arrange etc.- can I do that with the X50 and a midi controller combination, rather than having to use my PC?--
I can use my PC, and I know I will have to, to do editing, but can I sequence by running the X50 through a midi controller?
Can I also choose samples from the X50 to run through a controller and run them at the same time using samples, etc. from the X50, on the controller?
hope it doesn't sound too cofusing...
thanks alot for your help,
