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.
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.
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.
