100 Presets, 100 User Programs
Seventy Guitar Presets and Thirty Bass Presets are ready and waiting to get you started with your new Korg PX5D. For those who like to make their sound their own, 100 User Program location are available for storing your custom settings. Using the Software Editor Librarian provides faster, graphic editing and allows you to build up libraries of custom patches. A simple USB cable provides the connection to your computer.

The World Outside
Connect an MP3 player, CD, USB or other external audio source to the AUX IN jack and you can play along. Wrong key? Use the Key Transpose function to change the pitch of the song into any musical key. For the bassist, the PX5D multi-effects processor also contains a Bass Cancelling function that removes the bass sound from an external audio source so that you can play and hear your bass along with the song.

Repeat as Necessary
Phrase Training is a fun feature for learning difficult material or for working on solos. You can record up to 80 seconds of audio from any external source and play it back repeatedly (looped) at a slower speed - without changing the pitch. This is a great way to learn complex or rapid passages by ear, since you will be able to hear the phrase slowly. You can also record yourself chording along with the built-in rhythm and bass accompaniment, and then practice your soloing skills.
Clean Panel Design for Intuitive Control
With almost gamer styling, the PX5D is an easy-to-operate multi-effects processor. A four-way cursor to the left and a recessed dial to the right combine for easy navigation of the backlit LCD screen. For the amplifier traditionalist, dedicated thumb wheels across the top offer real-time control of Gain, Bass, Treble and Volume. Four Program Memory buttons keep your favorite programs close at hand! An adapter cable is included, allowing two optional footswitches to be connected to the PX5D for hands -free operation.

Drummer and Bassist Included
128 accurate and professional Rhythm & Bass groove patterns are built in to your Korg PX5D - including simple "click-track" style metronome beats. The Rhythm patterns have three variations, so you can find the one you like. Use the Tap key to set the tempo to anything from 40 to 240 Beats per Minute (BPM). Both Major and Minor bass lines are included with each groove, and you can set the Bass Key to any note. Up to sixteen patterns can be strung together into one of twenty chains - an excellent feature for writing a new tune, practicing a part or crafting that killer solo - in context!

Digital USB doorway
In its off hours, the Pandora PX5D moonlights as USB audio interface for all your computer needs, offering two-channel audio communication to and from your Mac or PC.
REM Effects and Modeling
High-quality REMS Based EFFECTS KORG's REMS Modeling Technology has been widely acclaimed for its natural, authentic sound quality. A total of 180 effect types are available in the Pandora PX5, divided into seven categories that match the seven effect modules that are simultaneously available.
    Dynamics
    This section includes everything from simple compression to advanced algorithms that can emulate a humbucking sound from a single coil pickup (or vice-versa); transform an electric guitar into an acoustic timbre, add a fretless character to any bass sound; plus a series of wahs and auto-wahs.

    AMP Modeling
    In addition to some of the most popular and widely recorded amps, the PX5D multi-effects processor includes a number of rare and boutique amplifier models - everything from the ubiquitous VOX AC30 to a US Hi-Gain (think snakeskin) amp. A total of 15 guitar amps and 11 bass amps are all delivered with spot-on accuracy. Bass synth and Guitar Synth models are also featured in the PX5D.

    Cabinet Simulations
    Matching the right amp to the right cabinet is a necessity for capturing a classic tone. But go ahead and mix and match to build your own custom virtual rig. From a single 8 inch tweed to a 4 x 15 inch mammoth, the PX5d has it all.

    Modulation Effects
    You name it, Pandora has it - phasers, flangers, choruses, filter sweeps, U-Vibes, tremolos, intelligent pitch shifting, rotary speaker, auto-panning. Best of all, each effect can be tweaked to your own personal preference.

    Delay Settings
    Five Delay effects - each with five variations relating to feedback amount - are available in this Pandora PX5D multi-effects processor. Delay time is conveniently set using the Tap key on the front panel and a versatile Reverse Delay is onboard.

    Reverbs
    Eleven Reverb algorithms place the final ambience and sheen on your sound.

    Noise Reduction
    Keep your sound clean - and silent in between songs

Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The PX5D seems to be well made although longevity/dependability will depend on the level of care given to this unit over time.
Reliability
How has it stood up over time?
Recently purchased, so category question "Not Applicable".
General
Your general opinion of this product.
As I own a earlier model of this unit (PX3B), I assumed that the PX5D would be consistent with that which I have come to expect from Korg. It is safe at this point for me to say that this newer model has met and in some way exceeded those expectations!
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Learning to use this unit has been relatively simple given the many functions it has to offer.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The presets cover a wide range of sounds for different style of music. Also, the ability to create one's own sounds are a plus, especially with the PC editor feature.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Silver finish looks good and case does have an attractive appeal.
Action
How was the action out of the box?
