Product Description

Professional Arranger with 61 Keys and Built-in Speakers
Korg has been an innovator in the area of music workstations since their inception, with both traditional instruments like the Trinity and Triton, and unique performance/production systems like the i30 and the iS Series. Now Korg blends the benefits of each approach into a single great-sounding system, the PA-80 Professional Arranger. With a stunning sound inherited from their award-winning Triton, a large variety of highly-musical Styles made by the best musicians in the world, a multi-tasking operating system and a revolutionary sequencer design, this new keyboard will bring the benefits of Korg's revolutionary songwriting and music production and performance to a whole new generation of musicians.

Proven Sound Quality
What better place to start than Triton's acclaimed HI sound generation and effect processing? So you know it delivers stunning sound quality and features a broad selection of great natural and synthetic sounds to inspire you. They added a new class of ultra-realistic solo instruments, which include sampled natural vibrato, including Sax, Trumpet, Harmonica, Violin, Flute, and more. Finally, Korg added a set of Drawbar sounds for a true simulation of the classic organ sound.

All Programs can be edited on-the-fly, using the Easy Program Edit functions, by changing Attack, Decay, Release, LFO, Filter Cutoff, and Resonance parameters. Any change will be stored into a Performance, for fast recall of the new Programs.

The PA-80 includes 4 powerful Master Effect processors, including all of Triton's studio-level Master Effects for a total of 90 different effects. You can use them for a Song, or split them in 2 sections, to assign 2 of them to the real-time tracks, and the remaining 2 to the Style tracks. You can even route 2 different external audio sources into the internal Effect Processors to mix them into your Song or live performance. Since each audio input has a different Gain control, you can connect a microphone and a guitar at the same time, each with its own set of effects.

Professional Sound Reproduction
The PA-80 features a newly designed stereo (22 watts per side) amplification and speaker system, which includes an Auto Loudness feature for smooth, deep, and powerful sound playback. And when you need to connect the PA-80 to an external mixer or recorder you have 4 outputs for greater routing flexibility. The new system allows you to define which instrument goes to which output, so it's easy to always route the Bass to OUT 1, or just the Snare to OUT 2 - it's never been simpler!

Musical Styles
As well as being a professional Korg synthesizer, the PA-80 provides a huge collection of music styles created by top musicians from around the world. Korg has received considerable acclaim for the natural performance of their accompaniment system, and for the most advanced chord recognition in the industry. With 152 editable Preload Styles and 48 User Styles the PA-80 can cover any situation you'll ever encounter. With 4 Variations, 2 Fills, 2 Intros, and 2 Endings you have all the variety to create a natural-sounding performance.

Revolutionary Sequencing
Recording your musical ideas is where the PA-80 provides its most distinct advantage. Where traditional workstations provide you an empty palette to start your idea with, the PA-80's Backing Sequencer can take advantage of the accompaniment system to provide you with as little or as much of a band as you need. If you simply need drums, you can select a Style and create a drum track with the press of a few buttons, adding fills where needed. Want more? Use the full system to get up to 8 players who will follow your every idea. After playing you can easily change chord ideas, break-downs, etc. and the system will automatically change the parts needed so you can try out new ideas without re-recording everything.

This brings a simplicity and flexibility to creating music that the more complex but demanding traditional systems can't match. So it's the perfect tool for the non-keyboardist and for the professional who needs to work quickly. And the sounds you need to play yourself are separate from the sequencer tracks so there's never any fear of note-robbing or effects setup compromises.

Dual Sequencer
The PA-80 further revolutionizes sequencing with its XDS Dual Sequencer Engine (patent pending). This new innovation allows the user to playback 2 independent sequences at the same time, with individual transport control for each sequence and a crossfader to switch between them. That's a total of 40 tracks of sequence playback power - two 16-track sequences plus 4 real-time tracks and 4 Pad tracks. Use it to create your own mixes drawn from more than one sequence, or to create long medleys of tunes with nice overlaps between songs.

Even More Innovations
The PA-80 features a powerful multitasking operating system which allows you to load a new Style while one is playing, load a new Program while a Song is playing, even edit sounds or Global parameters while listening to your song ideas. This makes working with it a fluid process - the technology never gets in the way of your creativity. Play data directly from floppy disk or optional internal hard drive, and use optional PCMCIA Flash-ROM cards to add more sounds, samples, grooves, and styles to your world with no load time. And the Operating System can easily be updated, so expect some exciting new functions already planned for the near future.

Options to Expand Your Potential
Flash-ROM (PCMCIA) Card
If you want yet more choice, you can add an optional Flash-ROM (PCMCIA) card to your PA80 to access even more Programs and PCM samples. The cartridge will be directly connected to the Tone Generator so sample reading will be in real-time - no need to load the sample into RAM first.

VHG1 - Vocal/Guitar Processor Board
Hardware options include a vocal/guitar board that gives you 2 totally separate effect processors. In Guitar mode you have a complete set of multi-effects, e.g. modulation, noise reduction, distortion, and compression, plus equalization and you can use up to 5 effects simultaneously. The vocal processor includes a harmonizer that turns a single vocal into a 4-part harmony, plus offers you effects and equalization.

VIF1 - Video Interface Board
A video interface board (both NTSC and PAL compatible) is ideal for karaoke, putting the lyrics direct onto any TV screen. All options (including the Hard Disk) are user-installable. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Korg products.
