Korg has announced the release of the Pa3X LE Professional Arranger. They tell us that the design of this 76-note semi-weighted keyboard is naturally responsive with velocity sensitivity, making this the perfect choice for any experience level. Korg says that, designed primarily for the live performer, Korg Professional Arrangers have a dual playback sequencer for non-stop performances, extra articulation for recreating convincing instrumental performances, and a number of ready to use styles with no pre-programming required.
Here's more details directly from Korg...
The Pa3X LE contains a slim, aluminum cabinet with a main panel that was designed for the controls to be intuitively positioned for natural performance. The large 7" Touchview color TFT display vividly provides the user with information and instant access to deeper parameters. For the most productive music-making experience, there are two interface levels designed to accommodate all levels of the arranger user.
The enhanced RX Technology sound engine offers realistic and vivid sound, while the Defined Nuance Control allows for optimal control and improved sound articulation levels. Pa3X comes with 1,100 unique and high quality sounds, all supported by the improved internal ROM. There is also 192 MB of PCM data, which allows for new sounds to be added quicker and easier.
The Pa3X Le offers over 410 styles, each dedicated to providing a different musical genre. Each style offers four Fill-ins and Breaks; one for each variation. The convenient Chord Sequencer function records chord progressions on-the-fly in Style Play mode, which is ideal for practice and live performances.
The TC Helicon voice processor guarantees the user will have the best sound quality available. There are up to three realistic voices at the control of the keys or MIDI effects as well as four other effect blocks available including Reverb, Delay, EQ and Dynamics. To ensure the best performance, two knobs and three buttons controlling the most important vocal functions have been added to the top panel. Vocal Remover allows vocals to be deleted from MP3 files and the 16-track sequencer allows sophisticated levels of arranging, and also provides quick and easy song creation using the Backing Sequence function.
The new fully programmable SongBook is an easy searchable Music Database. The SongBook can instantly recall any setting such as a song title, genre, artist, volumes, sounds, tempo, among others. The SongBook has everything you will need to play your song back just the way you heard it the first time.
