After all the supposed real pics of the prototype and claims of fakes, I almost believe, after 4 yrs, it may be true. However, even if it is, a pa5X would have to have unimaginable features to wrest me away from my pa4X. On the other hand, it would give us something new to talk about.

These rumours have been going on for ages; believe it when you see it and not before.

Live entertainment, Real Ale, Great Scenery, Great Beaches, why would anyone want to live anywhere else (I�m definitely staying put).

Korgforums have some pics that look genuine. Looks like a true next gen upgrade, which is imho sorely needed.

They might have actually managed to break free from the old Triton architecture and there seems to be some good crossover with the arpeggiator/clip launching modern paradigm.

A few steps back (seems likely they’ve ceased their association with Waves for Maxx and TC for harmony) but it looks like they’ve massively increased the sampling/loop memory and worked hard on syncing it all with the style engine.

Can’t wait for the official demos. With any luck they got Marco Parisi to sprinkle some magic on them!
An arranger is just a tool. What matters is what you build with it..!

I am definitely hanging out for this... An arranger with a proper Step sequencer like we are seeing in the Kross / Fantom synths has me highly excited.
