KORG's acclaimed flagship piano sound engine and meticulously selected keyboard sounds. Looks that pay respect to  acoustic pianos, yet also convey the ingenuity and individuality of electronic instruments. And a panel layout that is  carefully designed to draw out the player's personality and expression. Firmly grounded in both newness and in the  piano tradition, it's the birth of a masterpiece for a new generation. KORG's Grandstage delivers the ultimate playing experience to make your on -stage performance captivating. Sound engines that deliver the utmost in stage sound perfection The Grandstage  is equipped with seven powerful sound engines that make it the ultimate stage piano

SGX -2:

Six acoustic pianos Containing piano sounds from top -level instruments worldwide, the SGX -2 acoustic piano sound engine is what makes the  Grandstage worthy of the  term "ultimate." The five grand piano sounds have all been lavishly captured using instruments  from Berlin, Heidelberg, Austria, Japan, as well as a newly sampled Italian grand piano. These grand pianos are considered  world -leading classics, and now they are available in an unparalleled playing experience. In addition, the Grandstage also  provides a newly sampled upright piano sound, featuring an intimate character, different from its grand piano sounds, and  possessing its own refinement and depth. These  SGX -2 sound engines contain high -capacity unlooped stereo samples for every key, and use up to 12 levels of velocity  switching to perfectly convey the detailed and powerful expressiveness of an acoustic piano, extending to damper resonance  that reproduces the spaciousness felt when the pedal is pressed, and even mechanical noise. Responding to the requests of numerous professional players, the Grandstage also provides monaural piano sounds for all  of these acoustic piano programs.

These monaural piano sounds were voiced not from a mono mix of stereo samples but  from monaurally recorded sources, and will shine clearly even within a band's mix. EP -1: Six vintage electric pianos The EP -1 electric piano sound engine contains a total of six vintage electric piano sounds: the classic I, II, V, and DMP tine  piano models, and the 200 and 200A reed piano models. MDS (Multi -Dimensional Synthesis) technology delivers a further  evolution  of  the  concept  of  velocity  switching,  smoothly  responding  even  to  subtle  changes  i n  your  keyboard  dynamics.   Realistically -reproduced  amps,  cabinets,  speakers,  and  vintage  effects  add  the  finishing  touches  to  these  impeccable   simulations. CX -3, VOX, and Compact: Three organs with classic personality Three different organ sound engines a re provided. The CX -3 tonewheel organ sound engine is a complete reproduction of  KORG's classic combo organ that went on sale in 1980. The newly designed VOX transistor organ sound engine reproduces  the sound of the VOX organ that went on sale in 1960’s an d had a massive impact on popular music in Europe and the US.  Also new is the Compact transistor organ sound engine which simulates the compact organs that earned a legendary place  in rock during the same years as the VOX organ. By using these sound engine s with the rotary speaker effect that's built into  each one, Grandstage provides a realistic and rewarding organ playing experience. AL -1 and HD -1: A rich variety of sounds The Grandstage comes stock with a total of 500 different sound programs, and in ad dition to the above five types of sound  engine, it also gives you the AL -1 analog modeling sound engine that delivers well -defined reeds and thick brass sounds, and  the HD -1 PCM sound engine that covers a bountiful variety of sounds. In particular, the HD -1 contains many new samples of  distinctive keyboard instruments, including an eight -level multisampled clavi sound, as well as harpsichord, mellotron, pipe  organ, and the distinctive metallic sound of an FM piano.  An interface that directly conveys the emotion of the player 

Although the Grandstage features numerous sound programs, its intuitive interface lets you rapidly select the desired sound  without any confusion. The most frequently played sounds such as piano, electric piano, and organ can be recalle d from the  right -hand "keyboard section," and sounds such as synth and strings can be recalled from the left -hand "ensemble section."  Additionally, all effect, EQ, and dynamic controls can be directly accessed using front panel knobs and buttons. As a stag e  piano,  the  Grandstage  is  focused  on  straightforward  operation  to  let  the  player  concentrate  completely  on  their   performance. Master effects that are easy to control The reverb and delay that are indispensable for any emotionally rich keyboard performance are provided as master effects;  you can use the panel controls to instantly switch between effect types or to adjust the depth. The Grandstage features a  newly developed reverb circuit from KORG to achieve even greater expressive potential. Selecting the  HALL or ROOM settings  applies  "iVerb"  to  deliver  natural  spaciousness  and  smooth  reverberation,  or  you  can  choose  SPRING  to  apply  "Spring   Reverb" that will match the vintage organ sounds. Each sound is programmed with the optimal insert effect settings, so you'll enjoy the ultimate sound experience from the  moment that you turn on the Grandstage. Numerous functions for playability on stage The  Grandstage  provides  carefully  considered  parameters  and  a  thoughtful  panel  layout  with  numerous  highly  usable   functions to ensure that you'll achieve your best performance whether you're playing live or in a session.

Instantly control the articulation and expressivity:

Dynamics Grandstage  brings the player unprecedented expressive power. The Dynamics knob is KORG's new feature that is unique to  the Grandstage. It instantly changes the way in which your keyboard playing dynamics (velocity) affects the volume and tone,  allowing you to custom ize the playing feel of the keyboard in real time to suit your performing style or the genre of music. Turning  the  dynamics  knob  toward  the  left  provides  a  softer  sound  with  a  wider  dynamic  range  in  response  to  your   keystrokes.

This allows more sensitive expression since the sound responds directly to changes in your playing strength; ideal  for piano solos or when playing accompaniment. Conversely, turning the dynamics knob toward the right provides louder  sound relative to your playing strength, creating flatter dynamics. This is ideal when you want to play with a consistent touch  so that your sound will stand out in the band or ensemble.

Favorites Buttons

The favorites buttons let you register up to 64 of your favorite sounds. If you've saved your settings for a live performance,  the sounds you need can be instantly recalled during a song or between songs. The sounds you save can be registered as a  combination of the keyboard section and ensemble section. Change natur ally between sounds: Smooth Sound Transition KORG's  unique  "Smooth  Sound  Transition"  (SST)  function  creates  smooth  and  natural  change  when  you  switch  between   sounds and effects even while you perform; it's been further refined on the Grandstage. Adjust th e character of your sound: Three- band EQ The Grandstage is equipped with a three -band equalizer that lets you adjust the character of the overall sound appropriately  for the acoustics of your live performance venue. It can be controlled easily just by oper ating the faders. Combine sounds easily: Layer and Split Just by turning on the two sections "keyboard" and "ensemble," you can play layers or splits using the two programs selected  for each section. Layer/split selection, split point settings, and swappi ng the lower and upper can all be accomplished easily  using the panel switch, with no need to delve into the depths of a menu. Prevent inadvertent operation: Panel Lock The panel lock prevents sounds or settings from being unintentionally changed. You won 't need to worry that your hands  might accidentally come in contact with a knob or button while you're absorbed in your performance on stage. RH3 keyboard responds to your every nuance.   Made in Japan –  Premium Japanese Quality Both 88 -key and 73 -key mod els of the Grandstage feature the Real Weighted Hammer Action 3 (RH3) keybed. Made in Japan,  we are proud of the Premium Japanese Quality achieved through the careful production skills of a small number of dedicated  and experienced craftsmen. Like the keyb oard of a grand piano, it's divided into four regions in which the lower register feels  heavier  and  the  upper  register  feels  lighter,  beautifully  conveying  the  delicate  touch  and  nuances  of  your  fingertips,  and   letting you experience a realistic playing fe el. A design that combines beauty and individuality The  Grandstage   features  an  elegant  design  that  exemplifies  the  elegance  of  an  acoustic  piano,  the  very  quintessence  of   keyboard instruments. Its front panel features hairline -finished aluminum, and striking red LEDs ensure great visibility even  on  a  dimly  lit  stage.  The   rear  panel  features  chic  woodgrain,  creating  an  individualist  and  stylish  appearance  that  will  be   obvious at a glance. The entire rear panel KORG logo can be brightly illuminated, and you can adjust the color, brightness,  and illumination mode to your tas te. As a piano that was born for the stage, this instrument makes a statement. Music stand, pedal, and keyboard stand are included The Grandstage comes with a dedicated music stand that can be attached to the instrument, a damper pedal (DS -1H) that  suppor ts half -pedaling, and ships including a newly designed keyboard stand (Standard -M-SV) with a sophisticated chrome  plated  finish  to  match  the  instrument.  A  complete  stage  piano  system  based  on  the  Grandstage  will  elevate  your   performance to the ultimate.
