      Korg PA900 :- Sound quality at its very best

      Based on Korg's sophisticated sound engine, the PA900 Arranger Keyboard delivers truly outstanding new sounds. The RX (Real eXperience) Technology and the DNC (Defined Nuance Control) system refine an already powerful sound engine, allowing the performer to accurately and expressively introduce the most subtle nuances and sound articulation. Assignable switches have been added to the joystick control, resulting in deeper control and rich expression.

      Korg PA900 :- D.N.C. Technology

      Thanks to DNC, you can reproduce subtle articulation sounds that are typical of most acoustic instruments, for example, the growl of a passionately-played saxophone, elements of the breath found in wind-Instruments such as trumpet, clarinet and harmonica, and the added characteristics that give added authenticity to the pizzicato and bowed sounds of a rich string section. Many demanding professional sampling sessions with some of the finest musicians in the music industry have resulted in more detailed natural sounds than ever before. More than 1,100 sounds, including a new stereo grand piano (with string resonance and damper realism) and new electric pianos from the acclaimed KORG SV-1 stage piano; new wind instruments, basses and stunning guitars; plus new digital drawbars with leakage and key on/off noises provide the perfect sound foundation for any harmonic and melodic need. More than 70 drum kits give life to any rhythmic texture and sound truly authentic due to the Drum Family Easy Editing feature, which gives total control over volume, pitch, EQ, and more. Up to 192 MB (PCM User memory) are available, so custom sounds can be added easily. The General MIDI (GM) sound bank has been improved for better compatibility with GM files. The Pa900 can also load/import Korg, WAV, AIFF, SoundFont and export in WAV or AIFF. Sounds can be fully edited, and can now use up to 24 oscillators for each note!

      Korg PA900 :- Do it in Style

      The Korg PA900 delivers over 400 Styles straight out of the box. Each one is a fully-realized musical environment dedicated to creating a particular musical style. With so many to choose from, the Pa900 can provide instant access to a vast and robust range of musical genres. Each Style features 4 Fill Ins + Break patterns, one for each variation. Using the new Auto Fill function they can be automatically recalled as you move between the four variations. Korgs international sound team have created many new Styles; and many revered and well-known Styles have been improved with new sounds and new mixing. The PA900 has 1,200 locations for you to save your new Styles and settings. Several new sophisticated parameters which ensure professional and realistic guitar tracks have been added with Guitar Mode 2, making the guitar tracks of every Style rich and authentic. A new function called Chord Sequencer records your chord progressions on-the-fly so you can immediately practice or play along with your own chord sequences.

      Korg PA900 :- Premium Quality Effects

      The use of premium effects can not only add polish and class to your overall sound; they can also make your music tracks sound more interesting! Korg is famous for its outstanding studio quality effects, and the PA900 includes the best of the Korg effects library. Up to 4 Stereo Digital Multi Effect processors can be used for each song. 125 effect types are available, running from the standard reverbs and delays through to the more unusual and vintage effects. In addition each track features EQ with Low, Mid and High controls. A custom track EQ can be memorized in the general preferences for the Song Play mode. This will help adapting the sound to personal taste for any MIDI file you play. Need a lighter Bass track? Save the right equalization, and the Bass will stay light with all the subsequent Songs. A limiter and a final 4 band parametric EQ has been added to the sound output of the Korg PA900. Everything can be processed by this powerful and musically refined EQ, easily adapting the sound to your musical taste or correcting a problematic live scenario.

      Korg PA900 :- TC Helicon Voice Processor

      Korg's long term cooperation with the world leader in vocal harmonies, TC Helicon, continues in the PA900. With new features and algorithms the TC Helicon Voice Processor ensures your vocals have the highest possible sound quality. Up to 3 realistic voices are available and can be controlled by the keyboard, or by MIDI events. Other 4 effect blocks are available, including Reverb, Delay, EQ and Dynamics. To ensure professional vocal performance, 2 knobs and 3 buttons controlling the most important vocal functions have been added to the top panel within easy reach.

      When compared to its predecessor the Korg PA800 , the PA900 really has a significant amount of improvements , its smaller and lighter , the screen is bigger and much clearer, much of the premium Korg DNC sounds are plentiful on the PA900 but missing on the PA800, up to date features such as mp3 playback and vocal remover are also a benefit as is the very clear score display not previously available , bearing in mind of course the PA800 was already a very good product, Korg have done well to make so many improvements and to also, most importantly keep the price to a lower level than the PA800, its also pretty much the same keyboard as the new Korg PA3X LE but obviously without 76 keys and a metal chassis and a few hundred pounds lighter !
