Korg PA4X61 overview

  • 1Description

The 61-key Pa4X Professional Arranger from Korg relies on Korg's EDS-X (Enhanced Definition Synthesis-eXpanded) sound engine and comes with over 1,500 ready-to-play sounds. This collection offers a vast gathering of classic and contemporary keyboards, band and orchestral instruments, plus electronic and acoustic instruments - from techno to folk. The digital drawbar organ includes key on/off noises, leakage, and Rotary Speaker emulation. In addition, the Pa4X has been equipped with wind instruments, strings, basses, as well as acoustic and electric guitars.

The Pa4X 61 features a semi-weighted keybed that provides both velocity and aftertouch sensitivity. The dynamic response is adjustable to accommodate any playing technique. The main panel has been optimized to ensure that all controls are ergonomically positioned. Additionally, it features a 7" touchscreen display that can provide control over important parameters as well as in-depth editing of your sounds. The display can be tilted forward and back to provide suitable angle for optimum viewing.

Built-in Styles
The Pa4X 61 is packed with over 500 styles. In addition to drums, percussion, and bass, each style can provide up to five additional instrument parts that follow your chord changes and voicing, as well as the tempo. Additionally, each style can be enhanced by using the four pads. Each pad can add a one-time or repeating riff, a percussion part, an accent sound, or a sound effect. You can program your own pad riffs and phrases. Each style also features an assortment of intros, variations, breaks, fill-ins, endings, and a count-in. You can also create your own styles or customize the existing ones. The chord sequencer function quickly records and loops your chord progressions on-the-fly in Style Play mode. These chord sequences can now be also saved as style and SongBook entries for easy recall.
Studio Effects
4 insert and 3 master effects can be used for the accompaniment tracks, while 1 insert and 2 master effects can be used for the real-time keyboard tracks. Over 140 effect types are available, including reverbs, delays, vintage stomp box simulations, amp and cabinet simulators, and more. In addition, each track features an EQ with low, mid, and high controls. A custom track EQ can be memorized in the Song Play mode. The included Waves MaxxAudio suite delivers sound that is louder and clearer, easily adapting the sound to your musical taste or correcting a problematic live scenario.
TC Helicon Voice Processor
Up to 4 realistic harmony voices are available and all can be controlled using the keyboard or MIDI events. Available vocal effects include Double, µMod, Reverb, Delay, Filter, HardTune, Pitch Correction plus Compressor, EQ, Gate, and more. Three dedicated knobs and buttons for controlling the voice processor functions have been added to the top panel and placed within easy reach. The Adaptive Mic setting monitors the input signal and auto-adjusts parameters such as the Adaptive Gate, EQ, Compression, and the De-Esser. Just plug your microphone into the balanced XLR connection (phantom power available) and let the Pa4X do the rest.
Korg's XDS dual player & recorder features a crossfade slider thereby allowing you to load one song as the other plays, then crossfade between them or create a playlist for automatic playback. MIDI files and even MP3 files can be transposed, sped up, or slowed down. There is also a marker function to allow direct jumps to a given position in the song, or to create loops between song sections. The MP3+G format and other popular lyric formats are supported. This feature allows MP3 files to play with lyrics and graphics that can be displayed on the built-in display or on an external monitor or both. The vocal remover quickly eliminates the vocal track from MP3 songs. The 16-track recorder allows sophisticated levels of sequencing and editing, and also provides quick and easy song creation using the backing sequence and style functions. The Pa4X can record your entire performance and then you can play the recorded file again to add a further keyboard track or voice using the sound-on-sound technique. Using the note data saved in a MIDI file, the Pa4X can display traditional musical notation with notes and/or chords, together with lyrics and chord abbreviations. This score viewer can be seen on the internal TouchView screen, or displayed on an external video monitor. Chord names can also be seen in English or Italian.
The SongBook
Particularly helpful for live use, the SongBook is a fully programmable music database. Each entry contains all the settings required to play a particular song. The SongBook can save and access styles, MIDI files, or MP3s and immediately recall settings such as the song title, genre, artist, tempo, volumes, sounds, muted tracks, FX settings, easy-edit parameters, 4 keyboard sets, 4 pads, TC Helicon presets, master transpose, and more. A more refined filter feature allows you to search for entries using a combination of different criteria. The SongBook also includes a renewed set list function, with a convenient panel-button association for fast recall. With the SongBook editor you can easily view, create, and edit your KORG Pa-Series SongBook entries and set lists using a Windows based computer. It can also be synchronized with iOS and Android tablets (third-party software required).
Connectivity, Data Storage, and Updates
In addition to the main left and right outputs, the Pa4X includes two additional assignable outputs. These can be used for isolating a part of the song for additional signal processing or feeding an external mixer. A headphone output is located on the front panel. The microphone input uses an XLR connector. Additionally, the Pa4X features a phantom power. For inputs, the Pa4X provides a pair of balanced 1/4" inputs (line 1) and a stereo 1/8" jack (line 2) for use with smartphones, mobile devices, and more. MIDI In, Out, and Thru connectors are provided. It also comes with a USB for connecting to a computer (device) port. The composite RCA video output delivers the score and lyric display (or simply mirrors the internal display) to an external monitor.
