Each track within the arranger features its own EQ with low, mid and high controls, which can be controlled and automated in the Song Play mode so your composition sounds the best in any environment. As well as its own effects Korg has incorporated Waves MAXX AUDIO™ suite, delivering exception clarity and power.
