Korg Pa1X Upgrades, New Dual-Tube Preamps

Korg TP-2

Korg has recently released Version 1.6, the latest in a series of free operating system upgrades, for the Pa1X Pro and Pa1X Arranger keyboards.

New features include software support for the user-installable EXB-MP3 board, which allows players to record their entire performance—including vocals—as an MP3 file.

Also supported is an optional upgrade to the onboard TC-Helicon vocal processor (SUGTC1), which adds pitch correction and vocal modeling features.

Korg also announced a new dual-tube preamp with optical compression and digital output (TP-2), and a preamp board with optical compression (TPB-2), both of which enhance Korg’s D32XD and D16XD recorders. Both incorporate a specially tuned version of Korg’s Valve Force™ vacuum tube circuitry and high-quality optical compressors that offer a quick response and transparent character.

The Korg TP-2 and TPB-2 will be available in late summer, while Version 1.6 and the new Pa1X and Pa1X Pro resources can be downloaded for free at For more new product announcements, visit
