      Korg PA1X Used
      This instrument is discontinued


      The PA1X a truly easy to use keyboard for everyone

      Turn it on choose a rhythm and press the one touch setting-- the sound quality is inspiring, youll be tapping your toes by the end of the intro and youll be astounded by how good you sound when you start playing.

      There are 4 one touch setting for each rhythm allowing you to enjoy the instrument from the moment you unpack it. When your ready to learn more the display will allow you to grasp its capabilities quickly


      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.

      Screen-- The large 240 x 320 colour touchscreen is easy to 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 unit allowing 4 master effects and a set of Vocal effects provided by the legendary TC Helicon.

      Songbook-- You can select a song setup from a huge choice of 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 performance.

      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.

      Rhythms created by the worlds best musicians-- The PA1XPro is packed with over 350 musical styles created by brilliant musicians from all over the world. Each style consists of 8 accompaniment parts. You can use the bare minimum bass & drums or use all 8 parts to throw out a full big band behind your sound. New styles can be added or played directly from floppy or loaded onto the hard drive from a computer via the USB connection.
