It features a 7-inch touchscreen display that can provide control over important parameters as well as in-depth editing of your sounds. The Pa900 incorporates over 1,100 sounds including pianos, wind instruments, basses, guitars, and over 70 drum kits. Playback is provided via the integrated dual 20-watt amplifiers that power the 4 built-in speakers.
Two 1/4" microphone inputs allow you to integrate vocals into your performance. The integrated MP3 player supports the MP3+G format for graphical display of lyrics and images on either the 7-inch touchscreen or an optional external display. You can playback MIDI and MP3 files simultaneously while transposing, accelerating, or slowing them down. The microSD slot allows you to record your performances.
The Pa900 offers a variety of effects to further shape your sounds, including 125 effect types, 4 stereo multi-effects, a master limiter and 4-band parametric EQ. Korg has incorporated vocal processing from the TC Helicon, which provides up to 3 voices that can be controlled by proprietary reverb, delay, EQ and dynamics.
TFT Graphical Color Touchscreen Display
The touchscreen display features two modes: Easy and Expert. The Easy mode shows only the most important controls while keeping a clean and straightforward interface, useful for beginners or playing live. In Expert mode you have full editing control. When you do not remember where a file, a song, or a style was saved, just use the Search function to let the Pa900 find it for you
Real eXperience & Defined Nuance Control Technology
Thanks to DNC, you can reproduce subtle articulation sounds that are typical of most acoustic instruments, for example, the growl of a saxophone, elements of the breath found in wind instruments such as trumpet, clarinet and harmonica, and the added characteristics that give added authenticity to the pizzicato and bowed sounds of a string section
Multiple File Compatibility
The Pa900 can load and import Korg, WAV, AIFF, SoundFont and export in WAV or AIFF. Sounds can be fully edited, and can now use up to 24 oscillators for each note
Over 400 Styles
The Pa900 delivers over 400 Styles, straight out of the box. Each one is a fully realized musical environment dedicated to creating a particular musical style. The Pa900 can provide instant access to a range of musical genres. Each Style features 4 Fill Ins and Break patterns, one for each variation. Using the new Auto Fill function they can be automatically recalled as you move between the four variations. The Pa900 has 1,200 locations for you to save your new Styles and settings. Several new parameters ensure realistic guitar tracks have been added with Guitar Mode 2, making the guitar tracks of every Style authentic. A function called Chord Sequencer records your chord progressions on-the-fly so you can immediately practice or play along with your own chord sequences
TC Helicon Effects
The TC Helicon Voice Processor provides up to 3 voices that can be controlled by the keyboard or MIDI events. Other 4 effect blocks are available, including Reverb, Delay, EQ and Dynamics. To ensure professional vocal performance, 2 knobs and 3 buttons controlling the most important vocal functions have been added to the top panel within easy reach
Up to 4 Stereo Digital Multi-Effect processors can be used for each song. 125 effect types are available, running from the standard reverbs and delays through to the more unusual and vintage effects. In addition, 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 feature allows backing sequences to play with enriched lyrics and graphics which can be displayed simultaneously on the on-board TFT display and on an external monitor
Two different MP3 or MIDI files can be played simultaneously and both MIDI and MP3 files can be transposed, accelerated or slowed down. The Vocal Remover allows vocals to be removed from MP3 files using a center-channel cancellation tool. The 16-track sequencer allows sophisticated levels of sequencing, but also provides quick and easy song creation using the Backing Sequence function. The Pa900 can record your entire performance; run a song, play the keyboard, sing along and everything will be recorded in MP3 format and stored on an external USB device or in the internal memory
Particularly useful for live use, the SongBook is a fully programmable and searchable Music Database. Each entry contains all the settings required to play a particular song. The SongBook can use styles, MIDI files or MP3s and immediately recall settings such as song title, genre, artist, tempo, volumes, sounds, muted tracks, FX settings, easy edit, 4 STS, TC Helicon presets, master transpose and more
