KORG debuts the newest High Performance Arranger
in the acclaimed Pa-Series of Professional Arrangers, the Pa1000. The
Pa1000 has plenty of new sounds (featuring Defined Nuance Control for
enhanced realism) which keep performances fresh and exciting, as well
as an enormous expanded range of styles covering music genres from all
over the world. Combine this with powerful performance functionality,
an intuitive user interface and rich, sculpted sound and you have an
Arranger for the most discerning and demanding player.
The Pa1000 sound engine uses four times the PCM memory of the best-selling Pa900 and extends the amount of User PCM memory to 600MB using compression. The number of User Style locations has also expanded to a maximum of 1,152 which will cover almost every style imaginable. The improved built-in speaker system produces a strong, full-bodied sound that's enhanced by standard features such as the TC Helicon Vocal Harmonizer, a Dual MP3 player & recorder, and the Dual Crossfade Sequencer. Video output is standardized, so your audience can sing along to the onscreen lyrics. The Pa1000 packs all this in a high?quality case with aluminium inserts in the side-panels of an elegant chassis to provide a prestigious look on any stage!
Totally new is the addition of KAOSS FX, which give you creative control on your performance. From subtle morphing between Variations and Drum Kit types, fine mixing between accompaniment Sounds, live reshaping of ongoing rhythms, to the most radical note-crunching effects used by countless DJs, tape delay and arpeggios, you can add 'liquid mixing' to any Style or MIDI Song with the aid of easy-to-use computer-assisted composition features. Push the boundaries of your musicality!
With more power than ever before and numerous long-awaited new features, the Pa1000 sets a new standard for arranger workstations. A massive leap forward from the legendary and best selling Pa900, KORG has raised the bar of excellence by offering newer, even more realistic sounds and powerful new features, delivered in a slim and professional looking design, at an even more affordable price.
KORG is responsible for the most successful and respected arranger keyboards in the world. Used by countless professional musicians in every country around the world, KORG arrangers have thrilled audiences and delighted players everywhere with the magic combination of unbeatable sound quality and features. KORG Technology blends this great KORG history with powerful new technology and ideas from musicians around the world to deliver a new standard in arrangers. The result is a musical powerhouse that packages technological magic into a cool and user friendly design: the KORG Pa1000. /p>
The 61-key keyboard offers a semi-weighted action, feels just right, features naturally responsive key-on/key-off velocity sensitivity and aftertouch, and is designed for musicians of all levels.
The Pa1000 has been designed with the concept of combining a slim profile with a professional motif. The 2x33 Watt amplifiers drive the 4 loudspeakers in a bass-reflex enclosure to generate a rich, full-bodied listening experience. The main panel has been optimized to ensure that all controls are ergonomically positioned and intuitively located to make every performance feel smooth and natural. Big, bright, and bold, the new capacitive TouchView display hosts a redesigned graphical interface that is easier than ever to read, even under the most demanding lighting environments.
The Pa1000 delivers over 430 Styles, straight out
of the box. Each one is a fully-realized musical environment
dedicated to creating a particular musical style. With so many to
choose from, the Pa1000 can provide instant access to a vast and
robust range of musical genres. Each Style features 4 Fill Ins + Break
patterns, one for each variation. Using the new Auto Fill function
they can be automatically recalled as you move between the four
The Pa1000 has 1,152 user locations for you to save your new Styles and settings. In addition, each Style can be enhanced by using the four Pads. Each Pad can add a one-time or repeating riff, a percussion part, an accent sound, or even a sound effect.
Thanks to an all new built in Standard MIDI File to Style converter you can quickly and easily have on board styles of the latest songs! Just obtain a new Standard MIDI File, load it into the Pa1000 and the inbuilt converter will easily and quickly turn it into a full KORG style while also creating a Chord Sequence from the Song's chords.
The Pa1000 includes the best of the KORG library. 2 Insert and 2 Master effects can be used for the accompaniment tracks, while 1 Insert and 2 Master effects can be used for the real-time keyboard tracks. 148 effect types are available, including reverbs, delays, vintage stomp box simulations, amp and cabinet simulators and more.
KORG's long term cooperation with the world leader in vocal harmonies, TC-Helicon®, continues in the Pa1000. With new features and algorithms, the TC-Helicon Voice Processor ensures your vocals have the highest possible sound quality. Up to 3 realistic voices are available and can be controlled by the keyboard, or by MIDI events. Other 5 effect blocks are available, including EQ, Compressor, Gate, and two FX.
Guitar FXs let you add pedal and studio effects to a guitar connected to the dedicated Guitar input on the back of the instrument. We selected some of the best guitar effects from the KORG collection, to add the sound of all-tube amplifiers, realistic distortion, chorus or delay pedals, and the highest quality studio reverbs.
The famous KORG XDS Crossfade Dual Sequencer
Player supports the MP3+G (also known as MP3+Graphics) format for MP3
files in addition to the most popular lyrics formats. This new feature
allows backing sequences to play with enriched lyrics and graphics
which can be displayed simultaneously on the on-board TFT display and
on an external monitor. There is also a Marker Function, allowing
direct jumps to a given position in the song.
And because the Pa1000 is very clever, it can record your entire performance! You can run a song, play the keyboard, sing along and everything will be recorded in MP3 format and stored on an external USB device or in the internal memory.
Particularly useful for live use, the SongBook
is a fully programmable and easily searchable Music Database. Each
entry contains all the settings required to play a particular song.
The SongBook can use styles, MIDI files or MP3s and immediately recall
settings such as song title, genre, artist, tempo, volumes, sounds,
muted tracks, FX settings, easy edit, 4 Keyboard Sets, TC-Helicon®
presets, master transpose and more. The SongBook includes also a
renewed Set List function, with a convenient panel-button association
for fast recall, to make life easier during live gigs.
With the SongBook Editor you can easily view, create, and edit your KORG Pa-Series SongBook entries and Set Lists using a Windows based computer. It can also be synchronized with iOS and Android tablets to become your handy external digital music sheet reader (third-party software required). Everything you need to play your song back perfectly is in the SongBook, a useful musical feature that is unique to KORG.
MIDI connection can now also be done through the USB HOST ports (in addition to the USB DEVICE and the MIDI ports). This allows for easy connection of controllers like digital pianos (for example, our HAVIAN 30), or the KORG nano and micro series, with no need of special adapters
