The Korg Pa80 is the most successful Professional Arranger keyboard ever produced. Used by tens of thousands of musical professionals in every country of the world, the Pa80 is the industry standard. So, developing the next generation of Arranger from Korg – the Pa800 - required Korg to understand the needs of the modern musical professional while respecting the technology chosen by so many musicians worldwide.
First used on the Pa1X, the most powerful Arranger around, RX Technology is the guiding philosophy behind the Pa800. RX – Real eXperience - guided all our design and sound decisions. When the Pa800 performs, Korg wanted the audience to listen - and believe.
To be sure that the vocal processing and harmonies of the Pa800 were the best possible, Korg worked with a recognized world leader in audio technology, TC Electronics.
The Pa800 includes as standard the world acclaimed TC Helicon Voice Processor. This features EQ and professional quality effects (reverb, echo, etc.), designed and shaped specifically for vocals. These effects, combined with the built in 3 voice harmonizer and dedicated high quality mic preamp, ensure your vocals have the highest possible sound quality.
The most important controls to keep your voice under control are available in the panel and in the display's main page. Simply connect your microphone and start performing!
