The Korg Pa588 is a digital piano and arranger keyboard that is for the no-compromise pianist who wants to add an extra dimension or 2 to their performances. Korg created the Pa588 keyboard to be sonically identical to the Pa500. The Korg Pa588 digital piano adds Korg's 88-note, top-of-the-line RH3 graded hammer piano action, an attractive stand, a half-damping pedal, and a more robust speaker system, providing a complete instrument package. To complement this superb piano action, Korg also equipped the Pa588 keyboard with the incredible piano sound of their flagship C-720 Concert Digital Piano. A dedicated "Play Piano" button instantly transforms the Pa588 into a world-class digital piano.
Keys to Please
In addition to a satisfying and authentic keyboard, the Pa588 provides a four-way joystick, assignable switch, assignable slider, and an assignable pedal jack. Four pads provide the tools to spice up your performance by changing effect settings, adding or muting parts, slowing the tempo, or even adding "mini-sequenced" solo, arpeggio, or backing riffs. Nothing will stand between you and your professional performance.
Real eXperience (RX) Technology
It all begins with sound. The Pa588 allows unparalleled expression and articulation. For example, a single guitar sound may play a harmonic, a mute note, a soft note, a loud note, a pull-off”all determined by simply how hard you strike the key. They've even included the sound of the pick lifting off the string when you release the key. Overblown and triple-tongued flutes, brass slides and falls, all of the facets that provide an instrument with its own identity are preserved and easily replicated during performance by the natural gestures of varying dynamics as you play. With up to 16 oscillators available per note in a single sound, the breadth and range of realism is truly astounding. Based on the same EDS (Extended Definition Synthesis) that powers the popular M3, the Pa588 offers top-quality sound. Over 882 fully editable sounds are preloaded, representing a full range of musical instruments from almost every genre, each exploding with depth, nuance, subtlety, accuracy, and richness.
