About This Keyboard

This PA3X Le came to us as a trade in and is in excellent condition. Functionally it is in perfect condition and cosmetically it is near mint. Everything on the keyboard works perfectly and it already has the newest OS version installed. 

Listen and Believe

KORG debuts the newest keyboard in the highly acclaimed Pa series - The Pa3X Le High Performance Arranger.
 
The Pa3X Le has a huge collection of onboard sounds, and provides a generous 192MB of space for either your own samples, or widely available add-ons. With over 410 built-in Styles (and room for 1,200 in total), you can cover almost any musical style imaginable. The Pa3X Le’s impressive feature set includes a TC Helicon Vocal Harmonizer, a dual MP3 player & recorder, a powerful Dual Crossfade Sequencer, and much more. Use the video output to display lyrics or score on an external monitor, making it perfect for karaoke or band leading. On stage, the Pa3X Le provides a professional look with a sturdy black aluminium case with wooden side panels.

 Feel the keyboard

The naturally responsive 76-note semi-weighted keyboard features velocity sensitivity and aftertouch, and is designed for musicians of all levels, from hobbyists to demanding professionals.

Slim, powerful and easy to use

The main panel has been optimized to ensure that all controls are ergonomically and intuitively positioned, to facilitate a natural performance. The interface on our large color TouchView display includes newly-detailed icons and objects, and is easier than ever to read. So that musicians of all levels can make great music quickly, there are two interface modes: Easy and Expert.

The Easy mode shows only the most important controls while keeping a clean and straightforward look, useful for beginners or for playing live.

In Expert mode, you have full editing control, and are presented with more options at once. When you do not remember where a file, a song or a style was saved, just use the Search function and let the Pa3X Le find it for you.

For those looking for an all-in-one solution, the optional PaAS speaker system provides ample power with its bi-amplification and pristine sound quality through 5 speakers. The installation process is very simple: Just position the speaker in place and it's done. No additional power or audio cables are needed.

Sound quality at its best

Based on KORG's sophisticated sound engine, the Pa3X Le provides over 1,100 outstanding sounds, including a new stereo grand piano (with string and damper resonance) and new electric pianos from the acclaimed KORG SV-1 stage piano. There is also Digital Drawbar organ emulation, which includes leakage and key on/off sounds for a natural performance. Our RX (Real eXperience) Technology and the DNC (Defined Nuance Control) allow the player to reproduce subtle nuances and articulations, creating ultra-realistic instrument performances. For example, the joystick and assignable switches can introduce the growl of a passionately-played saxophone, breath elements found in trumpet, clarinet and harmonica, and the added characteristics that give added authenticity to the pizzicato and bowed sounds of a rich string section. More than 90 authentic drum kits (including Ambient Drums) give life to any rhythmic texture, with a Drum Family Easy Editing feature that gives total control over volume, pitch, EQ, and more. The additional 192MB of user memory means new sounds can be added quickly and easily. The Pa3X Le can load/import Korg, WAV, AIFF, and SoundFont? formats, and can export files in WAV or AIFF formats. You can also create your own sampling session by taking advantage of the complete sample recording and editing features.

Do it with Style

The Pa3X Le comes with over 410 Styles, each one a fully-realized musical environment dedicated to creating a particular musical style. Each Style features 4 Fill Ins + Break patterns, one for each variation. KORG's international sound team has created many new Styles for the Pa3X Le, and many of our revered and well-known Styles have been improved with new sounds and mixing. The Pa3X Le has 1,200 total locations for saving Styles and settings. The Guitar Mode 2 feature has been improved, making the style guitar tracks more authentic than ever. The convenient Chord Sequencer function records your chord progressions on-the-fly in Style Play mode, which is useful not only for practice, but for freeing up a hand while performing live.

Studio quality-effects

KORG is known for studio-quality effects, and the Pa3X Le includes the best of the KORG effects library. Up to 4 Stereo Digital Multi-Effect processors can be used at once. 125 effect types are available, including reverbs, delays, vintage pedal simulations, professional mastering tools, and more. In addition, each track features EQ with Low, Mid and High controls, and a custom track EQ can be memorized in Song Play mode. This will adapt the sound to your personal taste for any MIDI file you play. Need a lighter bass track? Save the right EQ, and the bass will stay light with all the subsequent Songs. A limiter and a final 4 band parametric EQ have been added to the sound output of the Pa3X Le. Everything can be processed by this powerful and musically refined EQ, easily adapting the sound to your musical taste or correcting a problematic live scenario.

TC Helicon? Voice Processor

KORG's long term cooperation with the world leader in vocal harmonies, TC Helicon?, continues in the Pa3X Le. With new features and algorithms, the TC Helicon Voice Processor ensures that your vocals have the highest possible sound quality. Up to 3 realistic voices are available and can be controlled by the keyboard, or by MIDI events. There are 4 other effect blocks 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.

Player/Sequencer

KORG's XDS Dual Sequencer now supports the "MP3+G" (also known as MP3+Graphics) format, in addition to the most popular lyric formats. This new feature allows MP3 files to play with lyrics and graphics that can be displayed on both the built-in display and on an external monitor. There is also a Marker Function, allowing direct jumps to a given position in the song. Two different MP3 or MIDI files can be played simultaneously and both MIDI and MP3 files can be transposed, sped up or slowed down. The Vocal Remover allows vocals to be removed from MP3 files using a center-channel cancellation function. The 16-track sequencer allows sophisticated levels of sequencing, and also provides quick and easy song creation using the Backing Sequence function.

The Pa3X Le can record your entire performance: You can play back a song, play the keyboard, and sing along, and everything will be recorded in MP3 format and stored on an external USB device or in the internal memory. A sophisticated Score Viewer can display clear and plain traditional musical notation with notes or chords, together with lyrics and chord abbreviations. Chord names can also be seen in both English and Italian. For those learning music, we've also added a function to show note names next to each note. 

The SongBook

 

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 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. Everything needed to play your song back perfectly is in the SongBook, a useful musical feature that is unique to KORG. With the SongBook Editor you can easily view, create and edit your KORG Pa Series SongBook entries and custom lists using a Windows based computer.
 
*STS - Single Touch Settings are memories that recall sounds for all the keyboard tracks (Upper 1, 2, 3 & Lower).

It is important to remember that when buying a used keyboard it may not operate or look exactly like a new one. Used keyboards develop wear over time that can cause such items as function buttons, knobs, sliders etc. to fail to operate as smoothly or easily as when they were new. Our technician does check these items and if they are deemed unusable they are replaced but some function buttons may require more pressure or manipulation to make the appropriate changes. Cosmetically your used keyboard may have scuffs, scratches, cracks to plastic pieces, discolored keys or other visual impairments that might not show up in the photos. We try to mention any obvious visual imperfections but may not consider them serious enough to post in the listing.
