pk.grs's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Practical and very good quality"

Korg PX5D
Connecting a guitar passive or active (selector)
Many sounds for guitar AND bass
Many effects, including suppression of low or decrease the tempo without modif stamp
Drum basic but useful
Aux input for MP3 player
etc ...

A small regret: not to record a single sequence


Manual very well
One criticism that too little button are assigned to many functions.


Excellent sound quality
Induces no sizzle


I bought it in the first place to be able to repeat the headphone on my work, without the need for amp.

This box also allows adjustment of the impedance, especially for connecting a passive guitar (high impedance) and a mixer for example.

2 AA batteries (I put rechargeable) last a very long

Korg PX5D
Effects available, everything you need and more. Modulation, distortion, simus amp cabinet, reverb, delay ... With the editable drum machine and more.
Simple editing on the device but I advise the use of software downloaded from the manufacturer's site, where it becomes super easy and in real time. (Editing sounds and drum machine).
Pocket model, super light aluminum.
Of 100% digital
USB connectivity, entry to a mini jack (to play mp3), an instrument input jack and an output jack to the amplifier or headphones. A connector to attach a double pedal switch to change the patch at the base (in practice requisitioned)
Most is that as soon as the branch on a PC it takes over sound card, everything is played on the PC through the pandora and can be played directly by DeSUS (useful for work on backing tracks or mp3).


It's super simple, hardly used the manual.
The issue again is easy, but I recommend using the software, we have everything on the screen, there is just click and it changes the parameters in real time.


The effects are very high quality as you play through headphones is great, or even directly on the sound system, with a DI box is nikel, and more with two input, one can play in stereo.
on the other hand for use on an amp lamp type, it is less, the sound is digital. But that's not his vocation. Yet that can drive change at the foot patch with a double switch (up down).
I love his clear which are very clean and sound great. The distos are up to scratch the headphone, after a little trimming required depending on the type of guitar, which must be adjusted after it is truly stunning.
Again on a tube amp made the worse, like all digital multi-effects.


I for two years. It does not go a day without my lights, it would a half hours.
I tried and owned many multi-effects guitar, vox, korg, boss, roland, rocktron, peavey (tubefex still the one I use), it always falls on the same constant is the digital rendering depends strongly on the final rest of the material used.
I love the Swiss Army knife side, it does everything and it's tiny.
The value for money is ok although a bit expensive in nine (I bought it used but like new moitiée price)
As I scored in the title I can not do without. All the guys who I did try the adopted ...

cmoa83's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" first contact: heuu mouaii ...!"

Korg PX5D
well here's a nice little box, combining multi-effects (all numrique course) drum machine, tuner, sampler ...
dowry "in-out", "sw football" and "in the" to record any audio source.
USB connection.


the manual looks clear and without reading it little fun dj.

CASC easy to presets, loop recording (at the time, has so far ...) very useful, with the possibility of rduire speed without loss of pitch.


I plugged my old lespaul above, wearing a headphone and turn on:
hmmm ... pretty clean ... sounds are very beautiful, but by stepping into the presets ... yuck! bof synth sounds are filthy and saturated.
rhythms batteries pretty poor record in mono spring of LOWER quality to what one hears at the sound. (The more measurements and more rendering sucks) just until you lose 4 measures.


I did that recently so I do not know yet but I PX5D pleasantly surprised t sounds clear even sent my amp Mesa.
Unfortunately, very quickly from the rest. I had a boss DR880 taient and sounds much better quality. (guitar and drums)

That said! to train, play, or for the younger (in practice) the PX5D is actually a very good product.
very small, march batteries and even when a good sound (for this type of product.)
I will place the sound quality for these PX5D above the ZOOM
very convenient for s'clater without drang around him, or while traveling.

I do not regret the purchase because I got it secondhand at a fair price: 120 (FDPC)
above was not worth the shot and then the nine! I weep!

APRS uses small NB:
true, it just sounds a bit amliorer playing on rglages but it remains very FRO all the same.
that said, with a good headphone, it's pretty enjoyable to play it. DLIR embter without good neighbors: o)
Lag Rockline with a good headphone, I love the preset "arena" but it's the only one.

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

Korg PX5D
Multi-purpose digital pocket. Drives (guitar + bass), compressor, phaser (s), flanger (s), chorus, echo, reverb, cabsim, noise gate, auto-wah (s), harmonizer (s), slow-attack, sitar, 12 string , ring modulator, shifter, octave + some strange effects which I do not know what to do (self ?!?). feedback

In addition, presets, battery pre-recorded accompaniment, and music loops to string together as her inspiration (not tried).
Instrument input, mp3, headphone / amp and USB


Use very simple play mode. I adapted the presets to my guitar, remembering to set the headphone output (important, otherwise, his poor).
It's about the size of a subway map, it fits in a pocket and it has a huge selection of sounds and customizable enough. Provide a set of rechargeable batteries (2xAA) and especially a headphone correctly. The effects are only setting the intensity dial by rotating. One could say that it is little, but it gives a good result without headache. Pre-recorded accompaniments enable training, especially as it can speed up or slow down the tempo. For use looper on the other hand, not happy. Difficult without the pedal, and I can not find it. Thereupon, Korg is pathetic (-1 point paff!). I found the pedals Leadfoot Thomann, bathes it, but it is limited (replicated his poor, small memory).


Sounds very good clean, correct saturation.
The effects-based ring modulator useless (it only to make noise.
The phaser / flanger / chorus / auto-wahs not bad. A nice but rocky crusher to handle with care. Some presets downright horrible, just good to get casts, I've replaced (not plaster). Other refined. Autowhas a bit sensitive.
Some emulations bass not sound bad on guitar.
But, I repeat, all that fits in your pocket.
And I re-repeat, we must touch settings comrades, and especially read the manual (just average).


Bought it 10 days ago.
I already have a ZOOM G7, and I can do pretty much what I want, the possibilities are virtually endless, but it's big, somewhat complicated to solve, it becomes almost an art.
I had a Line6 Looper, who was not hurt, but also cumbersome, and with much less varied effects, and half had rained.
But the new guy I carry around (the lack of pocket scratching).
I still have the problem of editing on computer. Problems with drivers, a problem with the CD unreadable, and I still do not understand how the editor (I have to bump it pffff!). Still no way to edit on computer. Pb win7?
