The Sounds are the best-- Korg instruments have always been
good, in the past they were mostly appreciated by the professional/semi
professional players but this keyboard changes the mould. Now everyone will
want to use a Korg. The sounds are now better than CD quality (the sampling
rate has been increased above industry standard and what a difference this make
to what we hear)
Record your performance-- The backing sequencer is designed to
let you capture all of the styles accompaniment tracks in one pass. The
sequencer is compatable with Standard Midi Files and Kareoke files, and
provides massive editing power. You can even edit the tone parameters of a
sound assigned to a track
Performance controls-- Eight assignable sliders, 4 assignable
switches, a joystick and 2 fixed function faders.
A great way to use these is by calling a preset organ performance, the eight
sliders are set as drawbars and the joystick switches between tremolo(fast) and
chorus(slow) leslie effects. Korgs flutes are fantastic, it combines for an
awesome organ setup.

understand and is intuitive. If youve never used one before you get used to
the idea instantly. The PA1XPro screen allows you to access all of the features
of the instrument quickly
Connections-- The back panel offers a damper pedal input, an
assignable pedal input and a connection to the optional EC5 multi function
footswitch. The USB port is essential for quick transfer of data from the
internal hard drive to a computer for further editing or archiving
Audio and Midi connections-- The PA1XPro has 2 pairs of audio outs
and 2 pairs of midi in/outs. There are 2 sets of audio in, that can be used for
sampling and providing input to the onboard Vocal Harmoniser, 1 set can be
switched to a balanced line input with a separate gain control. A coaxial S/P
DIF outut is included in the specifications making the PA1Xpro a truly
professional quality instrument
Quality Voicing-- The PA1X Pro has 62 notes of polyphony. There
are 760 sounds plus 516 more that you can create yourself. There are 48 preset
drumkits, and 128 programmable drumkits. Korg includes a very powerful effects

preset and user defined registrations. Calling up the correct style, tempo,
sounds and effects
Optional CDRW-- For less than £200 you can add the CDRW and
transfer your music directly to a CD to be played on any standard CD player.
Quality is perfect because there is no external noise to interfere with your
Powerful Sampling-- Korg has lots of experience in coupling
samplers to workstations and now they have incorporated it into an arranger
keyboard. It can read Wav files, AIFF Files and Akai samples. Sampled drum kits
can be sliced to create brand new drum kits, allowing you make your instrument
sound completely different from others.Sounds can then be filtered modified and
processed by the internal effects.
