SPECIFICATIONS

24 built-in drum/percussion styles that were recorded live using KORG’s proprietary “Real Groove Technology.”
Each rhythm style includes a rich variety of patterns: two variations, basic, fill-in 1, fill-in 2, and ending.
Use the chain function to create a rhythm structure for an entire song, and play it automatically.
A rich array of input jacks includes one XLR mic input, two guitar/bass inputs, and a stereo AUX input, allowing multi-channel mixing.
A high-quality reverb effect and equalizer are provided, giving you the freedom to shape your sound.
You can perform along with a rhythm style, and record the combined result as an audio file on an SD card.
Multi-track recording is supported, allowing you to produce more sophisticated tracks.
The tuner function features a large meter for good visibility. You can also tune while hearing a guide tone.
Acoustage technology delivers a spacious sound.
The unit can be powered on six AA batteries, allowing up to seven hours of use.
A separately sold foot switch lets you control the unit with your foot.
