With more than 420 styles, 1,700 sounds, and 600MB of storage for your own samples, the Pa1000 is ready for any style of composition. The 7″ TFT color touchscreen makes navigation simple, and also offers access to KAOSS-style MIDI and effects control for hands-on creative inspiration. And with a mic/line/instrument input with studio-quality TC-Helicon effects processing, the Korg Pa1000 Professional Arranger is a powerful workstation for modern composers. Defined Nuance Control for expressive performances Using the Pa1000’s three assignable switches and its four-way joystick, you can tap into Korg’s Defined Nuance Control (DNC) to add realism to your performances. Thanks to DNC, you can make sax solos growl, mimic changing embouchure of a trumpet, add breath sounds to harmonica, and much more. When

Korg debuts the high performance arranger in the acclaimed pa-series of professional arrangers, the pa1000. The pa1000 has plenty of sounds (featuring Defined Nuance Control for enhanced realism) which keep performances fresh and exciting, as well as an enormous expanded range of styles covering music genres from all over the world.

Korg PA1000 Professional Arranger Keyboard

The new Korg PA1000 Professional Arranger Keyboard is the latest model with built-in speakers in the Korg PA series line up. The PA1000 replaces the popular Korg PA900 model and adds even more DNC Sounds and a hugely expanded library of built-in styles that cover a wide range of musical genres from around the World.

The Korg PA1000 has more power than the previous PA800 & PA900 models. In fact, we believe this is the most powerful arranger keyboard in its class. It represents a huge leap forwards from the PA900 with improved sounds, styles, large Touchview 7” display and a new slimline design to make it even more portable. You must come and try this keyboard for yourself in one of our keyboard shops!

TC Helicon Vocal Enhancer Plug a microphone into the PA100 and you can use the TC Helicon effects to enhance your vocal sound. These legendary vocal harmony effects are among the most natural-sounding ever produced and they’re right here ready to use inside the PA1000. Up to three-part harmonies can be added to the lead vocal, and these are further enhanced with the EQ, Compressor, Gate and two Insert effects. Due to popular demand, Korg has added two knobs and three buttons for controlling the most important vocal functions in real-time. No need for separate vocal harmonizer boxed any more!
