Reliable and easy to use, the MP10 Pro's hardware interface is centered on Korg's huge color TouchView™ display. This intuitive design allows the MP10 Pro to deliver a wealth of useful features that anyone can quickly understand and enjoy. A comprehensive set of connections provide the MP10 Pro with maximum versatility.

Add to that the assignable foot pedal control, headphone outputs, and Advanced Vocal Remover, and the MP10 Pro rises to the top of its class.

Sophisticated Song Playback
At the heart of the MP10 Pro are the dual song players. Sharing a common database, each can quickly call up and play any of the thousands of MP3 audio files or Standard MIDI Files that you've saved to the internal hard drive. When playing an MP3 song, the MP10 Pro can change the pitch of the song to match any singer's vocal range, without affecting the tempo. Likewise, the time stretch feature can alter the tempo without affecting the pitch. Best of all, our advanced vocal remover can strip the lead vocal out of nearly any song as it plays – no preparation required!

Playlist and Requests
The MP10 Pro includes a powerful database - iTunes compatible - to easily manage thousands of music files. Numerous Playlists can be created using the MP3 songs and MIDI Files stored on the internal hard drive, and each playlist can be easily edited. Have different playlists on call for weddings, for frat parties, for social gigs and casuals. The Playlist view page includes everything you need to manage your songs. Playlists can be easily created even “on the go” – or imported from an iPod. By pressing the “Info” tab, you can immediately see how many songs are included in the selected playlist, as well as the total playing time. The Main Screen shows all the information regarding the two players, and the selected playlist. There are three different Play modes: Manual (songs can be freely selected and assigned to either player), Auto (using the selected playlist as a guide, the next song will be automatically loaded) and Non Stop (all the songs in the playlist will be played in sequence).

While playlists are great timesavers, with the MP10 Pro, you can also take requests! The entire database is searchable using multiple parameters – name, artist, era, tempo, genre etc. – making it simple to find any song on demand. Using the Find function, the MP10 Pro will carefully search the entire database for your favorite song. For example, the Browser can provide an immediate view of everything available in the selected genre. Once found, the song can be immediately sent to either of the two players.

Korg Quality Sounds and Effects
When playing a MIDI file, the MP10 Pro is ready with Korg's EDS Enhanced Definition Synthesis engine. In addition to providing a premium sound source for playing a Standard MIDI file (SMF), the MP10 Pro's EDS engine can also be played from an external MIDI keyboard, providing top-quality Korg sounds! This added feature makes the MP10 Pro the ideal add-on for the keyboard entertainer.

In addition to Korg's high-quality EDS sounds, the MP10 Pro is also loaded with studio-grade effects processing. In total, eleven effect processors are provided to the various functions and voices in the MP10 Pro – the internal synthesizer, the microphone inputs, the song players, etc. There is also a Master EQ, and each individual track being played by the song players has its own EQ as well, assuring complete tonal control. The MP10 Pro's Easy Song Edit provides even more custom control.

Master of Ceremonies
For the emcee and entertainer, the MP10 Pro is also equipped with a state of the art TC HELICON vocal processor, delivering world class dynamic processing, delay effects, and a multifunction EQ. The MP10 Pro provides reverb to the microphone inputs, and the Choir effect can add vocal harmonies to a MIDI file. Two balanced XLR microphone inputs offer compatibility with professional microphones.

Using the dual song players, one can play as the other is used to cue up the next song. Just as on a top-end DJ mixer, a 60mm motorized fader delivers smooth transitions and professional segues from one player to the other. The Pre Listen function allows the use of headphones to hear either the Master signal (output) or the Monitor signal (to cue the next song). Through this simple interface the user is always in total control, and can switch between the different play modes at any time during the performance.

Made to be Played
Best of all, your new MP10 Pro is made to be played. The color TouchView™ display brings all of the controls up to fingertip level. Surrounding the display are many additional well laid out controls. Most of these surface controls are illuminated and dedicated to single functions, making it simple to perform on the MP10 Pro in any situation – on stage or off – in any type of lighting. Four performance pads can be assigned to play a percussion instrument, sound effect, etc. on the fly to spice up or customize your performance. From the touchscreen display, calling up the Mixer section provides access to everything needed to control the Voice Processor, the four performance Pads, the Master FX, the EQ of each track, data from a MIDI keyboard, and of course, the mixer itself. SMF Song Edit tools are also found in this section. The built-in video interface allows this on-screen information to be shown an external video monitor, or even a video projector. This video output is especially useful for displaying chord changes, or even full musical scores from any MIDI File. Lyrics can also be displayed from karaoke files and properly prepared SMF songs.

The integral handle folds under during performance, giving the MP10 Pro just the right angle for live use. Footpedals and footswitches can be used to provide hands-free controls of effects, playlists, and more. A padded bag is included to help you protect your MP10 Pro as you travel from gig to gig.
