Yoghourt35's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Perfect for advanced users"

Korg Pa600
5 octave keyboard, hit ok, no aftertouch
All plants resources (styles, performances, sound, songbook) are fully editable and there is 96MB available for user samples to insert into sounds.
1200 locations for styles, ca let potential!
Sequencer agreements very practical once you mastered.
Very good effects fully configurable for each sound and each style.


The basic operation is very simple as most of today's arrangers, but its full potential is revealed by learning to modify existing resources and add.
There is a real synthesizer inside that allows you to create your own sounds, which has no equivalent in other brands.
The potential is huge as it is the same engine that PA3X, professional keyboard. The differences are mainly the PA3X with ergonomic (faders and absent dual sequencer PA600) and quality of hit the keyboard.

Textbooks, although a bit surly are almost complete.
Strong community to help in french on Audiokeys among others, or the Korg forum for English speakers.


Bought it 18 months ago, I do it again this choice.
For someone knowing sing, I would recommend the PA900 which is identical with an integrated vocal harmony, or PA3X LE, which comes out in 76 keys.

Excellent value for PA600: 1000 € for a synth / arranger / sequencer with a great sound engine.
Its main defect in my sight: boot time of 1.5 minutes (with fully charged resources), and having to load resources into the machine to try: no opportunity to try directly from a USB stick or on a share PC. PC publisher would also be provided by the Korg free. There is that by paying a third party developer.

veddasca's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent keyboard"

Korg Pa600
Keyboard synth guy, not too bad, an improvement compared to PA500.
Connecting to a computer via USB, connect a USB key
Very good sound quality, very expressive, which are also editable.
Very realistic styles, easily editable, more are found extensively on
Internet for free. Very good sequencer. Very correct amplification.


The PA600 it's ready to play: you choose a style and go.
It is also the measure: editions of sounds, styles, performance ...
To this we must go a little deeper in the bike, but nothing insurmountable!
The sequencer has several convenient ways: it can record fashion style then add additional tracks. A video guide is provided to take its first steps.


I use it for a month.
I tried Yamaha have not convinced me arrangers, the BK9 Roland, too expensive,
the moxf6 well but more complicated to use ...
I wanted a versatile machine that can serve as my children, simple
but with editing capabilities: Well I do not regret my purchase, I
largely for my money (plus I had the chance to enjoy a destocking)
Excellent value for money

Makos's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Arranger ... Arranging"

Korg Pa600
As a preamble I must tell you that I'm not an expert in these products. This is my first Korg PA600 arranger. For cons, I know the world of workstations (Triton, M50, Mox) and computer music ... so let's go for a full review:
Correct production, nothing more. It seems sturdy enough to withstand transport. A fly will be welcome for musicians on the move no matter what.

Side "under the hood", it is undeniable that Korg offers a lot:
You take a Pa3X you remove a few hardware controls, the ability to sample the TC-Helicon vocal processor, you remove the user memory and the hard disk option, you do make everything more cheaply ... you have the PA600. So most of what little and should provide this type of instrument.


I use it in several ways:

1 - As a keypad noon to control what is in my computer. The 61-key keyboard, standard, offers an effective dynamic. It is of course, a thousand miles on a piano keyboard.

2 - As an arranger "who takes care of a lot of things." The number and quality of styles have really impressed me, they are supported by the Korg sound processor that proves the best for the moment. I compare it to Mox, recent synth sounds on most Korg done better. For example, the piano "Grand RX" Korg Yamaha buried. Just the sound of the piano keyboard deserves a better quality ... but good.
All styles are editable, in sound, structure, tempo, mix. The touch screen allows you to play all intuitive and practical. Very nice to "customize" a small piece of a harmonic progression. The sequencer allows you to integrate it in a few "clicks". It is also used as one of a workstation, 16 tracks available.

3 - As an arranger that drives my computer. MIDI configurations are easily editable and scalable on PA600, thanks to the touch screen (again!). This allows direct data arrangement on the desired MIDI track (with Kontakt happiness to "fix" how classical music, for example).

4 - I also driver from a guitar synth. I make a "Split" to the desired location and I can alternate agreement (support) and solo. Very nice way to use it!

... There are still other ways to adapt this instrument, I did not do the trick.
MP3, MIDI, Songbook file for the song etc ...

One thing is certain: practicality, ergonomics provides quickly what you want (yes, you have to know it a little ...)


A Pa3X light for 1/3 the price but more than 1/3 functions, it is.

I had a Korg in the past and had enjoyed the interface and especially the touchscreen M50. I found a machine brand and its famous screen, in a type of machine that I did not know: the arranger.
No disappointment (besides the keyboard I would have liked better bill). We find the essence of a synthesizer (sound editing, effects, mix layers etc.., Sequencer etc..) And more, there is a musical Swiss-knife. Ultra-convenient for the creation, for fun, for research. What could possibly miss me, I found on my favorite virtual instruments!
I hesitated before giving me this arranger. But that was before. Now that "I know," no regrets. Excellent investment.

Korg Pa600


French manual incomplete. More detailed English manual (DVD ROM)


My first C Arranger. I tried a RA90 and one of the first Korg I3. I'm pretty happy overall. I expect to update the OS hoping for new sounds and styles (bcp because pages are blank!)
