The Pa1000 61-Key Pro Arranger with Speakers from Korg is a workstation with a range of styles covering music genres from all over the world. Combine this with powerful performance functionality and an intuitive user interface with rich sculpted sound, and you have an arranger for the most discerning and demanding player.

The Pa1000 sound engine uses four times the PCM memory of the previous Pa900. It extends the amount of user memory to 600MB and expands the user style locations to a maximum of 1152. The built-in speaker system produces a full-bodied sound that is enhanced by standard features such as the TC-Helicon vocal harmonizer, a dual MP3 player and recorder, and the dual crossfade sequencer.

Furthermore, the addition of the KAOSS FX gives you creative control over your performance. From subtle morphing between variations and drum kit types, mixing between accompaniment sounds, and reshaping of rhythms to the most radical note-crunching effects used by countless DJs, this arranger allows you to push the boundaries of your musicality.

Other effects include tape delay and arpeggios, and you can add 'liquid mixing' to any style or MIDI song with the aid of easy-to-use, computer-assisted composition features. With even more power than its predecessor, the Pa1000 raises the bar and delivers a slim and professional instrument for any musician.

Feel the Keyboard

The 61-key keyboard offers a semi-weighted action and features naturally responsive key-on/key-off velocity sensitivity and aftertouch. It is designed for musicians of all levels.

Slim, Powerful, and Easy to Use

Featuring a slim profile with a professional motif, the Pa1000 has two 33W amplifiers that drive four loudspeakers in a bass-reflex enclosure. It generates a rich, full-bodied listening experience. Furthermore, the main panel has been optimized to ensure that all controls are ergonomically positioned and located to deliver a smooth performance that is natural. The TouchView display has been redesigned and is easier to read, even under demanding lighting environments.

Sound Quality

KORG's advanced EDS-X (Enhanced Definition Synthesis-eXpanded) sound engine comes complete with over 1750 ready-to-play sounds. The collection offers a gathering of classic and contemporary keyboards, band and orchestral instruments, plus electronic and acoustic instruments. Also included are two new multi-layer stereo grand pianos, plus electric pianos from the KORG SV-1 Stage Piano. Furthermore, the digital drawbar organ includes key on/off noises, leakage, and rotary speaker emulation. In addition, the Pa1000 has been equipped with new wind instruments, strings, basses, and acoustic and electric guitars.

Do It with Style

The Pa1000 delivers over 430 Styles, straight out of the box. Each one is a fully realized musical environment dedicated to creating a particular musical style. It can provide instant access to a vast and robust range of musical genres. Each Style features 4 Fill Ins + Break patterns, one for each variation. Using the new Auto Fill function, they can be automatically recalled as you move between the four variations. Also, the Pa1000 has 1152 user locations in which to save your new Styles and settings. 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 even a sound effect.

Built-In Standard MIDI Files

Thanks to an all-new, built-in Standard MIDI File to Style converter, you can quickly and easily have on-board styles of the latest songs! Just obtain a new Standard MIDI File, load it into the Pa1000, and the built-in converter will easily and quickly turn it into a full KORG style while also creating a chord sequence from the song's chords.

Studio-Quality Effects

The Pa1000 includes popular selections from the KORG library. 2 insert and 2 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. 148 effect types are available, including reverbs, delays, vintage stomp box simulations, amp and cabinet simulators, and more.

TC-Helicon Voice Processor

The TC-Helicon Voice Processor ensures your vocals have the highest possible sound quality. Up to 3 realistic voices are available and can be controlled by the keyboard, or by MIDI events. Five other effect blocks are available, including EQ, Compressor, Gate, and two FX.
