The Korg Pa5X Professional Arranger redefines arranger keyboards, featuring Korg's cutting-edge EDS-XP sound engine and an intuitive interface with unparalleled ease-of-use. The Pa5X inspires you to compose, perform, and produce with professional results. Available with 61, 76, or 88 fully weighted keys, the Pa5X's premium keybeds provide authentic grand piano feel for any playing style. Packed with thousands of premium sounds and hundreds of styles, the Pa5X puts a world of music at your fingertips. The Pa5X excels as both a powerful studio tool and a dynamic live instrument, ready to accompany you wherever your musical journey leads.

EDS-XP Sound Engine Delivers Unmatched Sonic Possibilities

At the heart of the Pa5X lies Korg's advanced EDS-XP sound engine, providing a massive sonic palette to spark your creativity. With lavish and detailed acoustic sounds, rich pads, and edgy leads, the EDS-XP engine delivers professional results for any genre. Hundreds of premium effects, three-band EQ, and studio-grade reverb and delay effects give you full control over your sound.

Intuitive Interface Streamlines Your Workflow

The Pa5X features Korg's most intuitive interface yet, with an 8" color touchscreen, assignable pads and illuminated LED buttons. Easily navigate thousands of sounds, setups, and parameters. The touchscreen provides visual feedback for every control, while the assignable pads and buttons give you hands-on command over filters, effects, and real-time sound control. Customize the interface to match your preferences and gain instant access to the functions you need most.

Packed With Tools to Compose, Practice, and Perform

The Pa5X comes equipped with powerful creative tools for composing and practicing. Use the 16-track MIDI sequencer to build arrangements and orchestrations. Practice with the advanced metronome, providing audio and visual guidance. Four stereo master effects and two-band master EQ give you full control of your mix. Connect microphones, guitars, and audio interfaces to utilize the Pa5X as a standalone mixer.

Road-Ready and Built to Last

While highly capable in the studio, the Pa5X is designed for life on the road. Its sleek aluminum chassis is durable yet lightweight, and you can purchase the optional carrying case to provide stylish protection during transport and storage. Global power supply automatically adapts to any voltage, and Korg's unparalleled build quality ensures years of reliable performance.
