Galettouille's review (This content has been automatically translated from French) " Highly scalable instrument"
Many styles and sounds editable
Two sequencers with crossfader
Relatively complex configuration because everything is customizable and programmable.
The manual is not a model of clarity, but it is complete.
Editing sounds and effects is very complete. Easy for those who know what a synthesizer complex for a beginner.
Used until 2007 (Pa2X bought a replacement)
Before I had a GEM SK76. But also full engine sound dated.
I loved the sounds and extensive editing capabilities.
I did not like the weight or size.
Good value for money.
I do it again the same choice.

Simple setup if you have a good foundation in this kind of product, for a beginner ca be a harder, the manual is usable and necessary, it is always a little gas plant, but good with Patience ca can do; editing sounds is easy;
I use it for 6 years but fairly moderate, depending on the time and before I had a Roland g800; What I like most is that the PA1X has a sequencer, it's great for call, and the sound quality is perfect. (I also use it as a CD player) It is a little expensive to buy although I do remember me just say its price range between 2800 and 3200 euros, but the life of this well worth investment. About to make a purchase I do not know because I think some technical changes to have occurred. I think the sequencer module can be greatly improved with a more comprehensive view of the recorded tracks. A partition editor built would be a plus (I do not even know if it exists) in short I will still play competition or I will be attentive to the last keyboard by KORG create. rating: 9/10

jbernades's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
The general configuration is not simple, it is the flip side of an appliance with extended capabilities and as versatile as the PA1X. The two books in French are very comprehensive and clear. They are adequate, but the forums and other websites will be a great help.
Editing sounds is no more difficult than on a classic synth that would be interested. But it gets complicated for accompaniments.
I used this synth for almost 10 years in professional animation. Piano bar, prom, weddings rock band ...
Previously I had a "home" set beatbox various keyboards (including a Yamaha CP70) and bass pedals. Then I went to Roland G800. The PA1X was a sound revolution for me. Although the G800 does not déméritait for the time and the CP70 was a "huge" jewel of 80 kg, the PA1X brought a new generation sound, and incredible versatility in the one and same keyboard!
The most significant: the diversity and quality of sound and its accompanying its extreme versatility thanks to its various tools (songbook sequencer media player ...), its compactness and its opening (influx of new sounds and support in addition to those factory)
What it lacks today: the evolution of new piano sounds for example. A general rather metallic sound, so a lack of natural (the machine side).
And especially the lack of PC edition. Everything must be done on the touch screen PA1X which is not a model of sensitivity. The edition of the songbook that still seems antediluvian (not for example to determine the tempo of the software!), The ergonomics is average, small and fragile buttons.
It also lacks a sequencer simple agreement at the end to play a harmonic sequence and reproduce it in the style of speed and desired tone.
PA1X the rest in my opinion a keyboard still valid especially for the price or you can find it. It has all of today's machines. Only some sounds will get, but the quality is there. Apart from the difficult issue of the many parameters without using a PC you will enjoy playing in styles that appeal to you, the PA1X be your "friends" on stage or elsewhere (probably more than Facebook friends, humor ... )
Attention PA1X having served too have problems with buttons and touch buttons. It is possible to change the cost
PAX series has evolved, I'm only 2. I have not tried 3 ... But it is the finance talking. Try it even PA2X, the value for money is very good on occasion, but it's unbeatable for PA1X ...
Music at all, Jean

nikorg's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
It's been a long time I was looking for a machine that can meet both needs in one module. There is the warmth of the sounds (pianos are magical, the breathtaking violin), produce impressive realism means the squeal of fingers on a guitar Nylon, sufficient effort to get out of breath sound of a trumpet, the slide trombone ... In short a full orchestra on his own. Groovy styles so that they precede the tempo. I have seen Poas the range of possibilities notament sampling and two sequencers, but in sound quality and styles .... It would make a dancer John Paul 2. The advantage with this type of machine is that it is possible to assign any instrument on any track arrangements, for example if in a Jazz style, I find the bass a little soft I just assign another one of the 30 proposed to me the effects I want, it leaves a large margin of creativity. I tested a lot of arrangers, I had a Roland G800 that I found quite a lot, but most of the arrangers sin just by their sound, it was offset by another more synth-oriented sound, frankly, I do not see what I can add it as a module Audible. I await your proposals.
The PA1X is very accessible to the informed user. Editing sounds is simple, the manual is well done for (a little large yes, but it must explain the many features of the beast).
The touch screen is a good invention though sometimes I find it does not immediately respond to the touch. The must is the digitization of organ drawbars, we just close your eyes to believe in the church. There are very current styles in which mixing of the Dance with Latin percussion or Techno rhythms that support oriental melodies.
I even find that they went too far in the development of styles that tend to exceed our creativity. Some are too "complex".
I've had two weeks. I bought it on HUGOCEPS.COM, they made me a good rate and I have taken an old nightingale. At first I wanted TYROS Yamaha, I went into a store to listen to a demo, I was a little disappointed, it sounded a little ....." Supermarket ". I did not know the new line of KORG PA, while walking in a store, I stumbled upon a PA1X was on, I played a little bit, the sound of the piano I was impressed (with the pianist I am based close attention to the sounds of pianos), I just feel like a small Mozartian, every note played was suspended in an atmosphere that seemed to have bowed to the beauty of sound.
I stayed a bit shaken by what I heard. I launched a style, and even surprise, acoustic guitar arrangements were chained, drums began to play the harmonic blew me away. He had me at any price (Aïe. ...)
