Musikmesse 2016: KORG Lift the Lid On The StageMan 80
Introducing the KORG Stageman 80 - a system, which harnesses the convenience of a compact PA with a drum (rhythm) machine, mixer, recording device as well as a built in metronome and tuner.
The Stageman 80 boasts 2x 40 watt high-output amplifiers pushing the sound comfortably through two 4-inch stereo speakers - providing enough volume to cover small to mid-sized venues or busking on the streets.
There are 3GB of rhythmic loops covering 24 different genres, with beat sounds from cajons as well as rock and jazz beats. You can even save your favourite beats and tempos or even create your own drum tracks to suit your creative requirements.
The SD card feature also allows you to record your performances, loop and overdub, providing an ideal scenario for sketching your musical ideas out before developing them into your own masterpieces.
By using the optional VOX VFS5 footswitch (sold separately), you can inset a fill-in to the rhythm pattern while you perform or start stop the recording functions or audio playback.
