Korg Pa700OR Oriental 61-key Arranger Workstation
An Arranger for Middle Eastern Music
Expand the versatility of your studio or live rig with the Korg Pa700 Oriental arranger keyboard. This arranger is loaded with the same features as the Pa700 but focuses on Sounds, Styles, and instruments for playing Middle Eastern music styles. With many advanced features from Korg's flagship Pa4X arranger (like KAOSS effects and MIDI control) and the Defined Nuance Control (DNC) sound engine, you'll be able to produce lifelike sounds and incredibly dynamic performances. You get over 370 styles, a large TouchView display for easy navigation, and over 1,700 sounds. Simply put, the Korg Pa700 Oriental is a powerful yet easy-to-use arranger workstation for Middle Eastern music.
An arranger made for Middle Eastern Music
The only differences between the Korg Pa700 Oriental and the Pa600 is the quarter tone mini-keyboard and the expanded library. The Quarter Tone Sub Scale keyboard lets you select which keys/notes you want flatted to the nearest quarter tone. Four preset buttons give you instant access to the most common quarter tone scales. Korg created a specific library of Sounds and Styles that are tailored to Middle Eastern music genres. They also included instruments such as the Oud, bouzouk, kanoun, various percussion, and many others. If you're looking for the perfect instrument for Middle Eastern music, then you need to pick up the Korg Pa700 Oriental.
Over 370 musical styles for a ton of songwriting potential
You'll find over 370 professionally-created music styles in the Korg Pa700 Oriental, and it's easy to make them your own. Each style has three intros/endings, four variations, and four fill in/breaks. Once you've found your favorite styles, you can store your favorites and your user-created styles in storage for easy recall. Take it from composers at Sweetwater — the Korg Pa700 Oriental has the sounds you need.
Smart technology lets you create realistic guitar parts
When you're writing a guitar part on a keyboard, it can be difficult to make it sound like it's actually played by a guitarist! Korg's Pa700 Oriental has a Guitar Mode that essentially translates what you're playing on your keyboard into a convincing guitar performance. For example, when you play a chord, the notes "strum" instead of arpeggiate.
Built-in master effects for production-ready sound
With 148 built-in effects, you'll be able to polish your music until it's production-ready, all in your Pa700 Oriental. And each track also features its own EQ, with a 4-band parametric EQ and a limiter on the master output. So not only can you produce your music on the Korg Pa700 Oriental, you can also use it to add the final polishes that will make it ready for showtime.
