There are only 500 units of this bold and impressive red version of the popular SV-1 with retro reverse-coloured keys that call to mind the classic combo organs of the sixties. The SV-1 has always had the classic sounds that defined an era, now it's got another classic look to match.
The Korg SV-1 Reverse Key Stage Vintage Piano (73 key) offers the most rewarding compendium of electro-mechanical, transistorized, tape-driven, analog, and early digital keyboards ever available in a single instrument. The Korg SV-1 73 is the gigging piano you've been wanting. Inside, you've got the most in-demand keyboard sounds ever found on a single instrument — we're talking decades of essential analog and digital legends, plus all the modern mainstays.
The SV-1 73 also has Korg's finest weighted keyboard, so you can play with expression. To fine tune your sound, just steer your tone using the hands-on knobs on the front panel. Amp models, effects, and a hot vintage look take this Korg SV-1 73 over the top.
Tap into 36 of the most in-demand instrument sounds
You know the 36 sounds in the SV-1 73 by heart; each one is an old friend. Rediscover hit-making vintage electric pianos, funky clavs, classic and cult-fave organs, string machines and, of course, pianos. The SV-1 73 serves up breathtaking grands, a real-deal upright, plus hall-of-fame electronic contenders. On top of the standard sounds you love, you'll find multiple, signature variations of many classic instruments, all designed to inspire your performance.
Shine up your sound with effects and studio processing
Enhance your sound with a whole collection of period-correct amps and effects. You've got a 3-band EQ on the front panel to get things going, then you can take charge of pre-treating your sound with Compression, Boost, U-Vibe, Chorus/Vibrato, Tremolo, and Wah. From there, put your tone through any of the SV-1's wealth of amp heads and speaker cabinets — you won't believe how tube-like you can get your tones, thanks to Korg's exclusive Valve Reactor circuitry. Super-famous Chorus, Phaser, Flanger, and Rotary stompboxes add nuance and motion to any SV-1 73 sound, then all the essential reverbs and delays — include classic tape echo — let you really cook up your vibe. Last but not least, you've got an optional limiter at the 6th step of the signal chain, ensuring your level remains balanced across all sounds.
Get your hands on your tone with front-panel knobs
The Korg SV-1 73's user interface has performance in mind! Every essential control is quickly accessible on the front panel, with no confusing menus or multiple button presses. Rotary knobs include illuminated LEDs showing the position of the knob, and you can press them to restore the original setting. For really quick changes, the SV-1 73 has eight car-radio style buttons to instantly call up your eight Favorite sounds and settings. Storing a Favorite is equally as easy. Simply adjust the controls to your preferred settings, then press and hold one of the Favorites buttons; when the button flashes, press it again. Your custom setting is now stored in your Korg SV-1 73.
Editor/Librarian software lets you program, save, and load settings
More tech-savvy players out there that would love nothing more than to dig in a little deeper — and the SV-1 lets you. The SV-1 Editor/Librarian software provides cool graphic-based programming, including access to many effects parameters not available on the SV-1 73's panel. In addition, the Editor/Librarian software allows each of the 36 sounds and the eight Favorites to be programmed and saved individually.
This makes it easy for you to share and swap your favorite settings, and for Korg to supply more sounds in the future. The SV-1 Editor/Librarian runs on Mac or PC, and is included free with every SV-1 73.
