The Korg Pa5X 76 Professional Arranger Keyboard is a high-end arranger keyboard designed for musicians who want top-quality sound, style, and performance.
The keyboard has a sleek brushed aluminum finish and wooden side panels that give it a premium feel, reminiscent of analog synthesizers. The semi-weighted keys are naturally responsive and provide velocity and aftertouch sensitivity for a natural playing experience. The display is large and touch-capable, making it easy to navigate songs, lyrics, chord charts, or sheet music.
The Pa5X features the new EDS-XP (Enhanced Definition Synthesis – Expanded) sound engine, which delivers exceptional sound quality and definition with 24 stereo oscillators and 160 note polyphony. The built-in sound library includes over 2,200 factory sounds from a range of genres, including pianos, electric pianos, orchestral sounds, synthesizer sounds, and a drawbar organ section. The keyboard also features a sampler that is compatible with Wav, AIFF, and SF2 formats.
Styles and Backing
With over 600 backing styles, the Pa5X covers a wide range of musical genres and offers the ability to perform and compose entire tunes. The styles feature three introductions, four variations, four fills, a break, and three endings. The keyboard also features round-robin technology for new drum and percussion sounds, which provides a human element to the beat.
The Pa5X has an array of controls, including a fader bank, joystick, ribbon controller, buttons, and a pad matrix, providing a dizzying amount of control over the sound. The keyboard also features a dual player that allows you to play two styles, MIDI files, or MP3 files simultaneously and blend them using the crossfader.
The Pa5X includes studio-grade effects from Korg’s library, including inserts and master effects. The final stage includes industry-leading mastering functionality from Waves Audio, ensuring a polished and professional sound. The keyboard also includes vocal effects from Shift Audio, including a four-voice harmonizer and Auto Pitch.
The Pa5X has expanded ins and outs, allowing you to hook up your entire band and become the hub of the ensemble. Additionally, the songbook can be synchronized with external score readers or tablets.
