Product Description

Korg Pa500

61-Key Professional Arranger is ideal for the musician, composer, performer and entertainer alike with its stellar features and a price tag that won't break the bank. RX (Real eXperience) technology is used to achieve stunning sounds just like its big brothers Pa800 or Pa2XPro. Programming is simple with the TouchView interface, while realistic articulation can be controlled with the 4-way joystick.

Four stereo processors provide up to 128 effects with a 3-band parametric EQ available on each track. The Pa500 has over 320 styles programmed by some of the leading arrangers in the world each with up to 8 parts, 4 variations, and 3 intros/count-ins/fills/breaks/endings. Performance can be custom tailored to your specifications with the Tap Tempo, Fade In/Out and Manual Bass features.

Create accurate guitar parts with picking, strum, chokes, slides, hammer-ons and guitar-specific artifacts while enhancing guitar tracks of standard MIDI-files.

Expand your musical database for live performance with the SongBook feature with pre-programmed settings such as Sounds, Style, Performance, Volumes, Muted Tracks, FX settings, Easy Edit, STS settings, and Master Transpose for every song you need to play. Back up your data to SD or MMC cards and uses USB or MIDI for connection with your computer.
