A Complete Sound Library

onboard sampler to help build new Sounds, Drum Kits and Audio LoopsThe onboard sounds range from ultra-realistic acoustic instruments, to electric vintage keyboards, to synth classics, with the addition of fantasy sounds and special effects for game, media, video and cinema production. We have also included instruments from various ages and world cultures, while also leaving ample room for your own expansions.

The curated selection of acoustic and electric pianos, which includes sounds from our celebrated SV-2 Stage Vintage Piano, is particularly suitable for the hammer action 88 key version. We also included specially selected sounds from our flagship synth workstations: Kronos and Nautilus.

A new Drawbar Organ section proudly boasts a realistic control surface that can rely on the physical sliders and buttons on the main panel of Pa5X. New effects that are derived from the legendary KORG CX-3 Combo Organ are also included.

The new Drum Kits were recorded making use of a new technology, based on round robins to increase realism. No two drum hits are equal, resulting in authentic-sounding drum performances.

In addition to the huge amount of included sounds, the onboard sampler will help create new Sounds, Drum Kits and Audio Loops. Record your own sounds or import from standard file formats like AIFF, WAV and SF2. The detailed on-board sample editor allows you to fine tune your samples and even transform an audio loop into a percussive kit.

Premium Features For A Streamlined Workflow

Premium Quality and
Elegant Design
The Pa5X was designed with elegance and durability in mind, featuring a sturdy aluminum body and genuine wooden side-panels for a luxury appearance. All of the keybeds on Pa5X provide an authentic feel and full control of expression for any playing situation. The 88-key weighted action has a realistic piano-like touch while the 76- and 61-key versions feature lighter touch semi-weighted keys. All the keybeds include aftertouch control for added expressivity.

Modern and Streamlined User InterfaceAt the center of Pa5X is a large 8” tiltable touch screen that displays a completely redesigned GUI (graphical user interface). This makes all the sounds and features of Pa5X easily accessible to home and studio musicians as well as live performers. The colors in the display are carefully matched to the ones used in the LED programmable buttons on the control panel. This color driven interface allows you to easily navigate Pa5X, adding color to your music!

Advanced Chord Recognition
Pa5X’s chord recognition system is the most sophisticated around, featuring an Expert mode that is crafted around the playing styles of the best modern jazz pianists. This chord recognition system can be as simple or advanced as desired, even allowing you to trigger chords with a single finger! With automatic harmonization, a chord sequencer, and a sophisticated chord recognition engine, Pa5X gives you the tools to create rich musical arrangements no matter what the genre of music.


Dedicated Microphone and Guitar Inputs with Effects Processing

4K Recording

collaboration with shift audioA microphone and a guitar can be connected simultaneously to the separate audio inputs of Pa5X. KORG’s extensive experience in vocal harmonization technology and guitar effects processing is featured, with each of these inputs having dedicated on-board effects.

We are proud to have teamed with Shift Audio, a company with 30 years of experience in vocal processing technology. The founders of Shift Audio came from an industry leading company specializing in vocal processing products building on their experience to deliver. The latest generation of vocal processing algorithms optimized to run on the latest technology used in the Pa5X.

The result is incredible lifelike four-voice harmonies that give you the feeling of a real singing group surrounded by your own music. You will also enjoy the new Auto Pitch feature in the Pa5X delivering performance and sound found in a lot of modern music.

The separate guitar input is completely independent and even has its own gain control. Guitar effects include vintage pedal and amplifier simulators to enhance your guitar sound and performance. There are many predefined guitar-presets of up to 4 insert-effects provided, and it is also easy to create and save user effects presets. These new powerful guitar effects make the live performance of your guitarist much easier, as all the effects and effect-settings are handled by the Pa5X.

One vocal and one guitar-preset can be assigned to each SongBook entry which makes for an easy and fast musical performance.
