Overview
10
Front Panel

Mode Selection

Each of these buttons recalls one of the instrument's operating
modes. When selected, each mode excludes all the others.
STYLE PLAY
Style Play mode, where you can play Styles (eight tracks of auto-
matic accompaniments) and play up to four Keyboard tracks
and four Pad tracks. In the main page, Keyboard tracks are
shown on the right half of the display.
You can recall the main page by pressing EXIT from any of the
Style Play edit pages. If you are in a different operating mode,
press STYLE PLAY to recall the Style Play mode. If Keyboard
tracks are not shown in the display, press the TRACK SELECT
button to see them.
This operating mode is automatically selected when turning the
instrument on. The "My Setting" Performance will be automati-
cally selected.
SONG PLAY
Song Play mode, where you can play back Songs in Standard
MIDI File (MID or KAR) or MP3 format. In addition to the
Song tracks, you can play up to four Keyboard tracks and four
Pads along with the Song(s). In the main page, Keyboard tracks
are shown in the right half of the display.
You can recall the main page of this mode by pressing EXIT
from any of the Song Play edit pages. If you are in a different
operating mode, press SONG PLAY to recall the Song Play
mode. Use the TRACK SELECT button to cycle between the
Keyboard and Song tracks.
SEQUENCER
Sequencer mode, where you can play, record or edit Songs (in Stan-
dard MIDI File format). The Backing Sequence (Quick Record)
mode lets you record a new Song based on the Keyboard and Style
tracks, and save it as a Standard MIDI File.
Note: While in this mode, you cannot play MP3 files.
SOUND
Sound mode, to play single Sounds on the keyboard, or edit
them.
User Sounds may be based on User PCM Samples to be loaded
into the dedicated Sample RAM memory.
Note: Pa900 cannot load compressed User PCM Samples from
other Pa-Series models.
While in any other operating mode, keep the SHIFT
button pressed and press this button, to send the Sound assigned
to the selected track to the Sound mode.
DEMO
Press the STYLE PLAY and SONG PLAY buttons together to
select the Demo mode. This mode lets you listen to some Demo
Songs, to let you experience the sonic power of the Pa900. To
exit from this mode, press any of the MODE buttons.
Special Mode Buttons
These buttons are used to recall global settings and manage files.
GLOBAL
This button recalls the Global mode, where you can adjust vari-
ous global settings. Most Global settings are automatically mem-
orized as soon as you edit them. This mode overlaps any
operating mode, that will still remain active in the background.
Press EXIT to go back to the underlying operating mode.
MEDIA
This button recalls the Media mode, where you can perform var-
ious operations on files and storage devices (Load, Save, Format,
etc...). This mode overlaps any operating mode, that still
remains active in the background. Press EXIT to go back to the
underlying operating mode.
The internal memory contains an area where to save data
("DISK [KORG DISK]").
You can install an (optional) microSD card in the dedicated slot
on the back of the instrument, and gain access to the SD unit
("SD [KORG SD]"). See for information on how to install a
microSD card.
Style Section
Here you can select a Style, and activate the automatic selection
of STSs.
STYLE buttons
Use these buttons to open the Style Select window and choose a
Style. See "Style Select window" on page 100.
The FAVORITE/USER button gives access to twelve Favorite
Style banks and three User Style banks. You can use User loca-
tions to temporarily load new Styles from an external device, or
save newly created or edited Styles.
Favorite locations, too, can be used to load new Styles from an
external device, or to save newly created or edited Styles, but in
addition you can edit the names of these Style banks, so that you
can create a custom set of Styles. See "The Favorite banks" on
page 129.
