Korg presents the latest Songwriting Station keyboard in its Pa Series, the Pa588, at Mix Nashville 2009. Featuring a detailed, expressive piano sound and Korg’s best weighted-action keyboard, the Pa588 is uniquely designed to benefit songwriters.
Unlike traditional workstations, which require users to perform and record every track individually, the Pa588 follows the musician’s chord changes as they are played, allowing multiple instrument parts to be recorded in a single pass. Musicians can edit or enter chords manually—oreven step them in from a lead sheet.
Korg Pa keyboards are packed with drum grooves, bass loops and other instrument patterns conveniently organized into musical genres and combined into styles. The units’ TouchView interface is quick and intuitive, with no steep learning curve.
Korg will also be showing off its one-rackspace Korg MR-2000S DSD Studio Recorder at Mix Nashville. Designd for any live-sound, recording or mastering setup, it offers the superhigh sampling rates of DSD recording (twice any other DSD recorder, according to Korg) to faithfully capture the entire soundstage, even during the softest of passages.
The company ethuses that even those who record “in-the-box” will find that final mixdown and mastering takes on wonderful detail with rich imaging and stunning definition when captured with an MR-2000S. Included AudioGate software is a powerful tool for working with your DSD files and converting them into other formats using new Korg-exclusive dithering options.
