Pa4X ORIENTAL is a powerful addition to KORG's internationally acclaimed Pa Series. In addition to all the functionality, sounds and styles of the standard Pa4X, the Pa4X ORIENTAL also contains musical data specific to Middle Eastern music genres, with Turkish, Persian and Arabic acclaimed libraries. Stringed instruments, winds, various percussion instruments, and many more sounds are included along with dozens of extra Styles that are suitable for traditional and modern music.

Streamlined Construction; Intuitive Design; Fantastic Feel

Both the Pa4X ORIENTAL 76 and Pa4X ORIENTAL 61 feature a naturally-responsive and semi-weighted keybed that provides both velocity and aftertouch sensitivity. The dynamic response is adjustable to accommodate any playing technique and any level of musicianship - from the hobbyist to the demanding professional.

Superior Sound; Authentic Articulation

The Pa4X ORIENTAL relies on KORG's advanced EDS-X (Enhanced Definition Synthesis-eXpanded) sound engine, and comes complete with over 1,650 ready-to-play sounds - more than 190 Oriental sounds and 60 Oriental Drumkits. This realistic collection offers a vast gathering of classic and contemporary keyboards, band and orchestral instruments, plus electronic and acoustic instruments - from techno to folk.

More than 140 authentic drumkits - including Ambient Drums - breathe life into any rhythmic passage; the Drum Family Easy Editing feature offers total control over volume, pitch, EQ, and more. An additional 400 MB of user memory allows new sounds to be added quickly and easily using KORG, WAV, AIFF, and SoundFont formats. Conduct your own sampling session and take advantage of the complete sample recording and editing features found in the Pa4X ORIENTAL.

Studio-Quality Effects

KORG is known for studio-quality effects, and the Pa4X ORIENTAL includes the best of the KORG library. 4 Insert and 3 Master effects can be used for the accompaniment tracks, while 1 Insert and 2 Master effects can be used for the real-time keyboard tracks. Over 140 effect types are available, including reverbs, delays, vintage stomp box simulations, amp and cabinet simulators and more. In addition, each track features an EQ with Low, Mid and High controls, and a custom track EQ can be memorized in the Song Play mode - allowing your song to sound its best in any environment. The final effects are the result of KORG's long term cooperation with Waves Audio, the world reference in studio mastering effects. The included Waves MAXX AUDIO suite delivers sound that is louder and clearer, easily adapting the sound to your musical taste or correcting a problematic live scenario.

Packed with Style

Each Style is a fully realized musical environment dedicated to reproducing a specific musical genre, and the Pa4X ORIENTAL is packed with over 650 of them. Play along with these styles which cover song styles from around the world, from the past right up to today. These highly-versatile Styles have been created by KORGs international sound team to provide an extremely musical experience. New Styles have been added, and many cherished Styles have been brought up to date with new sounds, enhanced effects, and re-balanced mixing. In addition to drums, percussion, and bass, each Style can provide up to five additional instrument parts that follow your chord changes and voicings, as well as the tempo.

Chord Sequencer and Songbook for Live Performances

The convenient Chord Sequencer function can quickly record and loop your chord progressions on the fly in Style Play mode; this can be useful not only for practice, but for freeing up your left hand while performing live. These Chord Sequences can now be also saved as Style and SongBook entries for easy recall.

Particularly helpful for live use, the SongBook is a fully programmable and easily searchable Music Database. Each entry contains all the settings required to play a particular song. The SongBook can save and access Styles, MIDI files, or MP3s and immediately recall settings such as the song title, genre, artist, tempo, volumes, sounds, muted tracks, FX settings, easy-edit parameters, 4 keyboard sets, 4 pads, TC Helicon presets, master transpose, and much more.
