Keyboard Arranger from Korg belonging to the Pa series

Korg announces the Pa3X, the new flagship of Korg's Pa Series.

Arranger keyboards are similar to traditional workstations with sounds, effects, sequencing, drums and often sampling, all combined in a single instrument.

 

Designed primarily for the live performer, the Korg Professional Arrangers add to this a dual playback sequencer for non-stop performances, extra articulation for recreating instrumental performances, and a number of Styles, allowing any song to be played with a full arrangement on the fly, with no pre-programming required.

 

The Pa3X comes in two different configurations; a l61-key model and an enhanced 76-key version, offering a semi-weighted action and a motorized tilting display; both keyboards feature aftertouch.

New Sounds

Based on Korg’s EDS (Extended Definition Synthesis) Engine, the Pa3X is loaded with about 1,100 sounds, including a new stereo grand piano (with string resonance and damper realism) and new electric pianos from the Korg SV-1 stage piano; new wind instruments, basses and guitars; and new digital drawbars with leakage and key on/off noises provide the perfect sound foundation.

More than 100 drum kits, including new Real Ambience Drum Kits, are featured, all with Drums Family Easy Editing. The General MIDI (GM) sound bank has been improved for better compatibility with GM files.

 

Improved Defined Nuance Control

Korg’s DNC (Defined Nuance Control) system allows the performer to recreate the articulation of an instrumental player in a way other keyboards cannot, providing extended realism of instrument parts. Assignable switches and a ribbon strip have been added to the existing joystick to control this extra articulation.

Eight Effects; Waves Audio Suite

Up to eight Stereo Digital Multi Effect processors can be used at once. About 140 effect types are available, including new vintage effects from the acclaimed SV-1 Stage Vintage Piano. The Pa3X also includes the powerful Waves Audio MaxxAudio suite of effects.

TC Helicon Vocal Effects; Audio Chord Detection

The Pa3X offers a microphone input with vocal effects. TC Helicon vocal effects provide better pitch correction, plus four realistic voices and two doubled harmonies that can be controlled by the keyboard, MIDI and even MP3 input. Using the new Audio Chord Detection function, chord information can be automatically extracted from an audio file and sent to the Vocal Processor.

Expanded Styles; Guitar Mode 2

The Pa3X delivers about 400 Styles. Each one is a musical environment dedicated to creating a particular musical style. Each Style now features four variations and four Fill In + Break patterns, one for each variation. Several new parameters have been added with Guitar Mode 2.
