KORG Pa1X Pro
Is the most complete tools for the musical professional ever conceived.
Intuitive, powerful, interactive with the most stunning sound you will hear from an Arranger keyboard.
The Pro is a 76 note Arranger Keyboard Workstation.
The first thing you’ll notice is the huge 240 x 320 full color TouchView display, taking Korg’s intuitive access of multiple parameters to new heights.
Next, the sleek aluminum panel and 76 semi-weighted keys (with aftertouch) will catch your eye. Eight assignable sliders, four assignable switches, a joystick and two fixed function faders are all designed to put the amazing power of the Pa1X Pro at your fingertips.
Hidden inside, the hard drive can store all your sound, song, sample and performance data for easy recall.
The Pa1X Pro is the first Korg product based on our new RX Technology, designed to produce a detailed, sophisticated natural sound.
The Pa1X Pro delivers a generous 62 notes of polyphony, 760 Sounds, plus another 512 you can program yourself.
Add to that 48 preset drum kits and 128 programmable drum kits! Sweeten the sound using the four Master Effects (featuring 90 effect types), plus a set of Vocal Effects borrowed from the legendary TC-Helicon.
The Pa1X Pro is also an accomplished sampler, able to read .WAV, AIFF, Korg and AKAI samples/multisamples. Sampled sounds can be sliced to create new grooves and kits, assigned to Sounds, or filtered, modified and processed by the internal effects. Standard sample memory is 16MB, expandable to 32 MB.
The Pa1X Pro is packed with over 350 fully editable musical styles, created by a team of the world’s top musicians to enhance your compositions and performances – with room for hundreds more! Each Style contains eight accompaniment parts –
use one or two to add drums & bass, or use all eight to throw a full big-band behind your sound. Four variations, three intros, two endings, three fills, a break and a count-in further enrich each Style. The Pa1X Pro scans your playing to keep the accompaniment in key with your playing, recognizing a multitude of chord variations. New styles can be loaded in or played directly via the floppy drive.
Up to four Sounds can be split and stacked across the keyboard and played in real time – either by themselves or with a Style. The four STS (Single Touch Setting) commands call up an entirely new set of sounds for your real time performance parts, appropriate for the current Style.
Using the exclusive SongBook function, you can select a song from the vast user-defined database and instantly call up the correct sounds, style, tempo, key, effects – every setting needed to play that song! A single Performance setting – 320 are available – can save and recall a Style, STS settings, and also memorize transposition, scale type (Arabic, Stretch, Werckmeister, etc…) tempo and control assignments with a single command.
The sequencers on the Pa1X Pro outperform those of other products. And yes – we did mean plural. The Pa1X Pro uses our XDS Dual Sequencer, so one can load as the other plays, and a DJ style cross fader can blend between them. You can actually sync both sequencers together as you play to provide an astounding 40-part arrangement! The Backing Sequencer is designed to let you capture all of the Style’s accompaniment tracks in one pass, greatly speeding up the process. The sequencer is compatible with SMF and Karaoke files. The sequencer provides massive editing power – you can even edit the tone parameters of a sound assigned to a track.
The Pa1X Pro comes equipped with two pairs of audio outputs plus two pairs of MIDI Ins & Outs. You’ll also find two audio inputs, one of which can be switched to a balanced MIC input with separate gain control. As a central piece of your growing digital studio, the Pa1X Pro also sports a coaxial S/P DIF output. The back panel offers a damper pedal input, an assignable pedal input, and a connection to the optional EC5 pedalboard with five assignable footswitches. Finally, a USB port allows you to easily move data back and forth between a personal computer and the internal hard drive of the Pa1X Pro.
Adding an MP3 encoder/ player will allow you to record your entire performance – vocals and all – and play it back or save it for later. You can load MP3 files to play during a break, or even play along. Install the optional CD-R drive, and you’ll be able to play audio CDs as well as load in new sounds styles and .WAV/AIFF/KORG/AKAI samples.
Embedded SMF lyrics appear in the TouchView display, or can be sent to a video monitor using the Video Interface kit.
The TC-Helicon Voice Processor can be upgraded from voice doubling and 4-part harmonies to include state-of-the-Art Pitch Correction and Voice Modeling!
