The SV-1-73 gives you fingertip access to more electro-mechanical, transistorised, tape-driven, analog and early digital keyboards ever available previously in one single instrument. The Korg SV-1 even provides access to effect pedals, amps, speaker cabs and studio techniques that produce the vintage sounds that defined generations of popular keyboard playing.
Keep all of your vintage instruments in one place with the Korg SV-1. Economical, reliable and portable, the SV-1 was made to be played. Accessing these sounds couldn't be easier. The 73 RH3 Real Weighted Hammer Action keys with a solid and responsive fell, the SV-1 is a real pleasure to play. Save your favourite presets for quick access during a performance and play with the confidence that everything you need is live and ready-to-go on the front panel, easily selected with clearly labelled knobs. The attractive retro-chic appearance reflects the pulse and heart of the original instruments.
Korg have created the SV-1 to perfectly emulate a range of vintage sounding instruments such as electric/acoustic pianos, organs, strings and synthesizers allowing the user to truly create authentic vintage style tracks. Korg have meticulously sampled each of the core instruments to ensure a realistic and responsive tone whilst the addition of tine, key-off, damper and hammer noise dynamics help to create an authentic sound.
The Korg SV-1 incorporates a range of professional effects at various signal processing stages to allow a truly unique and flourished tonality. Whether you require reverb, delay, chorus, phaser, compression the SV-1 has you covered.
A truly unique feature for the SV-1 is the addition of the Valve Reactor technology which allows extremely realistic amplifier modelling. With a vast library of amp models and cabinets included the Korg SV-1 can use the Valve Reactor technology to add colour, fuzz or even full blown drive to your tone.
The performance-friendly interface gives you quick access to every essential control via the front panel with no confusing menus or multiple button presses. A mix of rotary knobs, car radio-style selector buttons and LEDs make the SV-1 simple and intuitive.
Incorporating into your setup with balanced XLR and 1/4" outputs, L and R audio inputs, MIDI In and MIDI Out jacks and a USB MIDI port, the SV-1 also has the option for three pedal connections with a Damper pedal (included), which responds to half-pedalling.
The included Editor/Librarian software lets you dig a little depeer into your new instrument by providing graphic-based programming and access to certain parameters not available on the front panel. Design, share and swap your favourite settings with other players and update your SV-1 with new sounds added by Korg.
MusicRadar"The classic sounds are there straight away. The multi amps feature is really useful on all of the sounds not just the Organs and Electric Pianos. On top of all this, the Korg SV1 has some of the best piano sounds I've ever heard. Love it."
