It looks like you can split sounds on the keyboard. Can you also layer the sounds. i.e. layer piano & strings? I see a split control but no dual control.
Asked by: Anonymous
The PA300, all Korg Professional Arrangers, give you three upper sounds and one lower sound, in addition to the backing accompaniment tracks. The three sounds are accessed from the touch screen, and there is a Mute/Play toggle for each. In addition to the Mute/Play toggle, you can also access the volume control for all tracks.
