MUSIKMESSE 2014: Korg have unveiled details of the Pa300 Professional Arranger. Due this May, the keyboard is said to have captured the essence of Korg's popular Pa series at an entry-level price, and all within a compact design.
Among the eye-catching features on board are an enhanced RX (ReaL eXperience) sound engine for improved realism, over 950 pre-loaded sounds (including 64 drum kits) that are fully editable for customisation, four stereo effects processors and a four-band parametric EQ on the output, to assist with adapting the keyboard to different live settings. You'll also find an MP3 player and an upgradable operating system.
In addition, you may have noticed that Korg are sub-titling this model a 'Professional Arranger': in this department the keyboard offers automatic accompaniment with "realistic" backing patterns to prompt arrangement ideas, the idea being that you come up with the chord sequence, then the Pa300 automatically juxtaposes it with a suitable backing track.
Here are a few specs:
The Korg Pa300 is due May 2014, and will retail at £779.99 (approx $1,290). For more information, visit Korg.Read more about
