Features We Love:

High Quality Sounds and Styles

The PA1000 has tons of great sounds on-board. Thanks to Korg’s Enhanced EDS-X sound engine, the instruments sound expressive and realistic. There are over 430 factory styles built into the unit, which cover almost any genre and can always be expanded later too. There’s also a huge amount of memory to store User styles, so you’re never short-handed.

TC Helicon Vocal Harmoniser

On the PA1000, Korg have also managed to acquire industry-leading Vocal Harmoniser effects from TC Helicon. This is some of the best harmoniser technology on the market. It allows you to sing alongside professional-sounding harmonies all by yourself!

User Friendly Interface

The TouchView 7" TFT display makes selecting styles, making changes and viewing lyrics easier than ever. It provides excellent visual feedback on which instruments are being used in the Style, amongst other parameters. There are a ton of control buttons to hand, which allow for quick changes to be made as well!

The number of User Style locations has also expanded to a maximum of 1,152 which will cover almost every style imaginable. The improved built-in speaker system produces a strong, full-bodied sound that’s enhanced by standard features such as the TC Helicon Vocal Harmonizer, a Dual MP3 player & recorder, and the Dual Crossfade Sequencer. Video output is standardized, so your audience can sing along to the onscreen lyrics. The Pa1000 packs all this in a high‐quality case with aluminium inserts in the side-panels of an elegant chassis to provide a prestigious look on any stage!

Totally new is the addition of KAOSS FX, which give you creative control on your performance. From subtle morphing between Variations and Drum Kit types, fine mixing between accompaniment Sounds, live reshaping of ongoing rhythms, to the most radical note-crunching effects used by countless DJs, tape delay and arpeggios, you can add ‘liquid mixing’ to any Style or MIDI Song with the aid of easy-to-use computer-assisted composition features. Push the boundaries of your musicality!
