Value For Money : Excellent
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.

UTILIZATION

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.

OVERALL OPINION

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.
