KORG PA600 61-Key Professional Arranger Keyboard

The KORG PA600 is a brilliant Professional Arranger that distils the sonic essence and functionality of the Pa series into a compact and affordable new instrument. Like its big brothers – the Pa800 and the Pa3X – the Pa600 uses our RX (Real eXperience) and DNC (Defined Nuance Control) technology to deliver sound quality that’s unprecedented in an arranger keyboard.

With its new compact cabinet, large TFT colour TouchView display, enormous factory and user PCM memory, huge style database and excellent amplification system, Korg has raised the standard of excellence in the entry-level price range. Listen and Believe.

PA600’s Stunning Sound

It all begins with the sound. Korg’s sound quality is universally recognized as superior and relied on by musicians around the world. The Pa600 gives you a rich, detailed, sophisticated natural sound with musical instruments from almost every genre; exploding with depth, nuance, subtlety, and accuracy.

The DNC (Defined Nuance Control) system adds finely tuned control, and provides various levels of articulation. There are also several sounds distilled from the OASYS, (one of the most powerful synthesizers ever made), helping the Pa600 set a new standard for arranger keyboards. Over 950 sounds are present, including a refreshed GM sound set, and 64 drumkits.

There is also an amazing multilayer stereo acoustic piano. It was accurately sampled from a Concert Grand, and includes String and Damper pedal Resonance. Sounds are fully editable and you can save changes in the User area.

One very exciting feature added to the Pa600 is the option of purchasing musical sounds and styles particular to specific regions around the world. Up to 96MB of additional PCM allows many instruments to be accurately added to the Pa600 sound engine and used with styles that were developed to represent many of the popular musical styles of certain countries.

Effects

Great sound is more than just the quality of the PCM. For many years, Korg has produced outstanding studio-quality effects that are simply breathtaking. The Pa600 has four Stereo Master Effect processors with 125 of these effects including standard FX such as reverb, delay and chorus as well as some of the universally acclaimed REMS guitar-based effects for authentic guitar tones.

Each Track features EQ with Low, Mid and High controls. A custom track EQ can be memorized in the general preferences for the Song Play mode. This will help sculpt the sounds to your personal taste for any MIDI file you play. Need a lighter bass track? Save the desired equalization, and the Bass will stay light with all the subsequent Songs.

We have added a limiter and final 4-band parametric EQ to the sound output of the Pa600. Everything can be processed by this powerful and musically refined EQ, easily adapting the sound to your musical taste or adjusting sound in a problematic live environment.

Styles

The Pa600 delivers a new set of deluxe styles, programmed by some of the leading arrangers in the world, each of whom worked according to their musical strengths. The result is hundreds of preloaded Styles that provide unparalleled realism and detail. Covering an expanded range of musical genres, the Pa600 provides styles for almost every occasion.

We add further realism to your performance with four Fills, Break, three Intros and three Endings. More flexibility is apparent in the choice of different transposition tables to suit any instrument characteristic. The stunning Guitar Mode 2 adds a totally new perspective to how realistic Guitar tracks can sound.

If you need both hands to play a solo passage, record your chord sequence. Let the Pa600’s Chord Sequencer play it for you.

Compact, yet powerful

The Pa600 is one of the easiest arrangers to carry around. While its size might appear compact, the power of the onboard, exceptionally high-quality custom designed amplification system is anything but small. The 2 x 15-watt amplifiers drive two loudspeakers in a bass-reflex box to generate a powerful listening experience.

Play any song, and view it as traditional music notation

The player on board the Pa600 can read MIDI, KAR and MP3 files. It can also read lyrics and chords from most of these files, and add markers on-the-fly to MIDI files. Traditional score viewing is also available for those who prefer to read music.
The Score Viewer displays the lead track (or any other track) as clear and plain traditional musical notations with notes or chords, together with lyrics and chord abbreviations. View chord names in different languages (English and Italian). For music learners, we also added a function to show note names next to each note.

PA600’s Ease of Use

With all the technological power inside, it was vital that we also made the Pa600 easy to use. Your experience using the Pa600 should be intuitive, musical, fast and foolproof. The panel layout has been simplified. The gorgeous colour TouchView Display lets you simply think, point and click. It promotes easy, intuitive navigation and performance.

So that musicians of all levels can make great music quickly, there are two interface modes: Easy and Expert. Easy mode shows only the most important controls while keeping a clean and straightforward interface. Its useful for beginners or playing live, while in Expert mode, you have full editing control. Nothing stands between you and a stellar performance.

Switches are assignable so your live performances work the way you want. When you don’t remember where a file, song or style is, use the Search feature.
