    Chorus Button

    I think I found it. It's actually in the 'FX' section, where you can add effects like reverb and chorus. As I expected, there's a ton of options to choose from! But I did read through the ensemble section as well and that does seem useful. I've tried pushing it a few times but I was never quite...

    Chorus Button

    Tried this and it works pretty well. Thanks for the tip!

    Chorus Button

    This is probably a dumb question but... My old stage piano had a 'chorus' button that made pianos & e pianos sound awesome for songs such as 80s ballads. I can't find this feature on my PA4X. I'm guessing it has this ability, but it's probably hidden in more complex settings with more...

    PA4X Polyphony

    I considered waiting for the PA5X but being quarantined this winter I decided not to wait. Overall quite happy with the 4X, but probably will upgrade as the new models come out. I tried playing around with different instruments & pads on this particular song to see what fixed the polyphony...

    PA4X Polyphony

    I tried making sure to release the sustain pedal frequently but it did not help. I didn't notice this issue until a few days ago when I started changing pads on some of the pre-set song styles. Most were changing from a single hit sound (such as crash cymbal or wind chimes) to a continuously...

    PA4X Polyphony

    I'm assuming the backup instruments & pads all come out of the same 'bucket' available? In this case it's dropping the sustain on notes as I play them so it's extremely obvious. I haven't noticed it very often so perhaps there are other times it's dropping soft sounds that aren't noticeable...

    PA4X Polyphony

    I've noticed some notes dropping when playing my PA4X. It's been happening on occasion when I have all the backing instruments & pads playing behind me. It sounds like it simply runs out of polyphony and can't handle all the sounds. Anybody experienced this before? Could it be some setting I...

    PA4X External Video

    Thanks Biggles. I've read through the manual and got the Lyrics function to work on my PA4X. But even with the smaller text setting it can only display 8 lines of text. If I want to see lyrics with chords above this would essentially only be 4 lines of text. Therefore I'm leaning towards the...

    PA4X External Video

    Question about sheet music storage. I have a PA4X mainly for home use. But I will have people over post-covid to play along and/or kareoke nights. So far I've been using physical songbooks/fake books for chords & lyrics for the songs I don't have memorized. So when playing a song, I...

    Korg PA4X

    Absolutely loving the PA4X I bought a couple months ago. Best purchase I ever made. I'm probably averaging 2 hours a day and it's a blast. Never tried a Genos but everything I read said it's comparable to PA4X, maybe better in a few areas, but costs 50% more. Reubens piano sounds were key for...

    Do studio monitors need a Sub?

    I received the monoprice subwoofer today and it sounds great. Plenty of bass for what I want to do. I hooked it up to the headphone jack for now. There is an additional output '1' & '2' on my keyboard (in addition to the typical L & R), which seems like you should be able to mimic the output of...

    NAMM Winter 2021 - New Korg Products

    No word of a PA5X or a Kronos replacement yet? Been trying to search online and haven't seen anything.

    Semi-weighted Keys

    Well I bought a MIDI file for Livin' on a Prayer as a test and converted it to a style and the first impression is not great. There are no intros or outros or drum fills. The instruments are all wrong, and the iconic bass line from the song isn't close to right. I'll have to spend a lot of time...

    Do studio monitors need a Sub?

    Great, thanks again. I do have a 2nd keyboard and a guitar I play on occasion so perhaps a mixer would be a good investment.

    Do studio monitors need a Sub?

    Do I need a mixer to be able to use a sub? Not sure I'd have any other use for it.
