The new Korg PA800 - Korg's best Pro Arranger Keyboard yet!
The Korg Pa80 is the most successful Professional Arranger keyboard ever produced. Used by tens of thousands of musical professionals in every country of the world, the Pa80 is the industry standard. So, developing the next generation of Arranger from Korg - the Pa800 - required Korg to understand the needs of the modern musical professional whilst respecting the technology chosen by so many musicians worldwide.
Now on Dolphin Music, the new Korg PA800 - Korg's best Pro Arranger Keyboard yet! Here's what KORG says about it:
"With all the technological power packed inside, it was vital that we also made the Pa800 easy to understand and easy to use. But even more, we wanted the whole way you use the Pa800 to be an intuitive, musical, fast, foolproof experience. Our graphical user interface uses an amazing Graphical Colour Touch Screen so you simply think, point and click for easy and intuitive use - RX Technology at work for you!
"So that musicians of all levels can make great music quickly, there are two interface modes: EASY and EXPERT. The EASY mode shows only the most important controls while keeping a clean and easy interface, useful for beginners or playing live, while in EXPERT mode you have full editing control. Nothing stands between you and your professional performance.
"Switches and sliders are assignable so your live performances work the way you want.
"Of course, having power and ease of use means nothing without great sound and the stunning high quality sound performance of the Pa800 will impress any audience. The Pa800 delivers sound that makes it seem like you have the coolest band available on stage - all working under your control.
"Korg sound quality is universally recognized as superior, and relied on by musicians everywhere. For the Pa800, we redesigned what was already the most powerful synth sound engine available to give you an even richer, more detailed, sophisticated natural sound than ever before with musical instruments from almost every genre exploding with depth, nuance, subtlety, accuracy and richness. We even used several sounds from OASYS (the most powerful synthesizer ever made) helping the Pa800 set a new standard for arranger keyboards.
"The sound memory of the Pa800 has been largely increased to achieve the best sound quality possible boasting all new multi level samples of the instruments you know and love. Many of these also include also various levels of articulation so the polyphony has been also expanded to 120 notes to cover even busy passages.
"There are more than 950 ROM sounds, including a new amazing multilayer stereo acoustic piano accurately sampled from a Concert Grand (and including String and Damper pedal Resonance!), plus an extra 63 drum kits. In addition, the User area contains up to 256 user sounds and 64 drum kits and of course, there is full on board sound editing.
"Still not enough sounds? Many professional musicians choose to add their own sounds and because the Pa800 is dedicated to professional musicians, you can load Wave, AIFF, Korg format files and of course the incredible Akai sample library - about the largest sample library available - into the standard 64MB of added memory.
"The Pa800 also features professional editing facilities such as loop, cut, normalize and cropping of samples. A special "Time Slice" feature allows you to slice audio grooves and import the audio data into a Style so you can create some of the coolest rhythms imaginable.
