    Korg Pa50SD 61-Key Professional Arranger with HI Synthesis Product Description

    The popular PA50 keyboard has now been updated to the PA50SD that now includes a built in SD card slot instead of the old floppy disc drive.

    The Pa50 joins Korg's best selling line of Professional Arranger keyboards. Designed for composition and live performance, the Pa50 features a 61-note velocity-sensing, synth-action keyboard, a 62-voice Triton-based HI synthesis sound engine, over 660 high-quality factory programs (including GM level 2 programs), and over 300 musical styles (256 factory + 48 user). It also includes an SD card slot for data storage, powerful Dual sequencer, four real-time pads, and other live performance functions -- all accessible via a large, easy-to-read, custom LCD display.

    The Pa50's 32MB PCM ROM features a wide selection of acoustic and electronic sounds including a stereo piano and Melody Voice sounds, recorded with a sampled natural vibrato to recreate solo instruments such as sax, trumpet, harmonica, violin, and flute.


    Four stereo onboard digital multi-effect processors provide 89 effect types, which can be assigned in various amounts to each song, style, or track. The accompaniment system provides various musical styles and an advanced chord recognition system. Each Style can be modified, and offers four variations, two fills, two intros, and two endings. The Pa50 is also compatible with Korg i-Series style data and most Pa80 data.

    Korg's unique Backing Sequencer can be used to quickly lay down chord and melodic ideas. The user can play along with one of the Pa50's Styles, or overdub counter melodies and other parts separately. The entire Backing Sequence is instantly converted to a Standard MIDI File for easy editing and storage.

    Dual Sequencer

    The Pa50 is equipped with Korg's XDS Dual Sequencer, featuring two 16-track sequencers, each with its own transport controls. One sequencer can load as the other plays, and a DJ style crossfader can provide seamless segues between them for a non-stop performance. The Jukebox function can be used to play back an entire set of songs. The sequencer is compatible with GM, SMF, and many karaoke formats (SMF/Karaoke lyrics will appear in the display), and supports Real-time or Step recording with full track and event editing.

    The Pa50 features a professional sound system including custom EQ, a 2 x 15 Watt stereo amplifier, and two coaxial speakers housed in a bass reflex cabinet.
