Bitozar's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg PX1
Pocket multi-effects, batteries or power supply sector
- 13 rglage distortion with gain (compressor, crunch, tube, higain, overdrive)
- Equalizer bass and treble
- Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Tremolo, Rotary, Tremolo, autowah
- Delay, Echo, Reverb, Pitch Shifter
- 4 speaker simulations
- Tuner
- Noise reductor
I bought it in 1996 I believe. Since then, there have been revolutions with more stuff (batterie. ..) but considering the price at which one can find the PX1 is not bad dj. If I had to record their CHARACTERISTICS over 2004, it is clear that the note would be lower, but all the notes that I would take into account the report qualitprix. Because otherwise, if I take as a REFERENCE Gmajor or POD XT Live, I will not put many points!

I put 7 because:
+: The autowah, noise reductor, the tuner, hp simulators for the game with headphones
-: The mtronome too basic (I would have AIM pace a little box the era)? Only 20 presets is a bit limited in order to save all sounds

UTILIZATION

Well it's simple:
- An edit mode to build a sound
- A play mode to choose her among the 20 presets
There are no hidden features, so no need to manual.

To edit the sounds, we choose:
- A type of distortion
- A type of modulation
- A type of reverb or delay
- A loudspeaker
and hop ...

I have AIM and the pitch shifter autowah very easy to use.
It sure is not as instinctive a multi-effect pedals and with all the buttons available at the same time honntement but I've never had a problem to use it.

Also runs on batteries with a duration of 10-15 hours for 2 batteries.

SOUND QUALITY

Sounds ... Well ... Remember that a date of 1996. Therefore not expect the quality of a POD, VAMP, VOX and co. That said, a TRS is good for the area in which it is supposed to be used as PRIOR game to win o headphones you like, or stereo.
I really AIM crunch and clean sounds, chorus, flanger and phaser. Just for a, a worth it.
We have come distos trs corect but do not think of a voice scne to 200W, you will receive crates of tomatoes. So even in the headphones and a password RPET trs well and we go from the small to the big nag disto ACDC Metallica style.

In the end, it's hard to believe that this little mess can come out sounds like a.

OVERALL OPINION

As I said dj, this small PX1 in 1996. Since then, it has largely done better. Before selling it, I notice DPOS AIM if someone does not know this unit. I will sell it because I stopped using it so it is Designed: win in his pocket with his guitar to play anywhere, or as multi-effect base in RPET . And for this use, it is amazing given the price at which you can find it (I would say around 40-50).

Indeed, there are other Pandora (the PX4 now) but I think ... 200. It is expensive to play in the toilet! It is little prs pay the price I must say the era but the choice silent much smaller.

In conclusion, I would say if you are looking for a cheap multi-effects put in your pocket, take it in the event. It will make all the services that you can imagine such a device.

Note that I give (8) is valid if you are 40. For every 10 more or less, add or remove a point!!

Korg PX1
Effects: overdrive, compressor, distortion, echo, flanger, wah-wah, reverb, tremolo, phaser, basically all the effects imaginable, and more are ditables runis in this mini multi purpose,
the connection is nothing but the jack,
thanks to its preamp, it can play with headphones, is not negligible and can play the guitar with all the sounds around as lightweight.
a stand in the pocket, is also a tuner, but does much more ..
a score cheap ...

UTILIZATION

When you do not lose the manual and if you speak a little English, it's too easy ...

SOUND QUALITY

The sounds are quite effective, though a bit too digital, the wah-wah is not great

OVERALL OPINION

I had lying around for several years in a corner of the lot and sometimes I have a blast with,
especially the headphone did you feel playing in front of thousands of people, but there's only you who hear this big sound! too strong,
if not, I also serves as a preamp to record electric guitar tracks on cubase and it works not too bad

the more recent Pandoras must be better (though probably more complicated)
