— All-in-one MIDI instrument and dual-song player for the mobile entertainer —
MELVILLE, NY, August 30, 2010 — Korg is now shipping the MP-10 Pro Professional Media Player – the perfect musical companion for mobile entertainers, solo keyboardists and singers. This revolutionary, all-in-one product brings together a reliable and easy-to-navigate performance interface with total hands-on control over the most essential forms of media required by the modern performer.
As a media player, the MP-10 Pro features two independent media song players; each is able to play both MP3 and MIDI files* directly from the massive 120 GB internal hard drive. The motorized 60-mm crossfader allows for DJ-style mixing. Songs can be saved into multiple playlists, and the database can be sorted using any criteria. Playlists can be easily imported, or even created “on the fly.” Using the Find function, the MP-10 Pro will carefully search the entire database for the user's favorite song. Once found, the song can be immediately sent to either of the two players. An ASCII keyboard can also be used to call up songs by name quickly.

As a MIDI instrument, the MP-10 Pro can play MIDI files from the song players. The internal sound engine uses the same EDS (Enhanced Definition Synthesis) found in the Korg M3 Music Workstation and can also be played from an external MIDI controller or instrument. The front panel offers four assignable performance pads for triggering sound effects and musical phrases. Numerous on-board effects are available for the internal players and MIDI engine. For the entertainer, singer or MC, the MP-10 Pro is equipped with a TC Helicon vocal processor offering compression, EQ and delay.
A pitch shifter for changing keys, a time stretch function for changing the tempo and an advanced vocal remover allow MP3 or MIDI files to be customized to suit the entertainer's style or to suit different singers' abilities, which makes the MP-10 Pro a perfect tool for karaoke performances.
The MP-10 Pro features Korg's huge color TouchViewâ„¢ display, offering extreme ease of use. A comprehensive set of connections provides the MP-10 Pro with maximum versatility. In addition to the PC keyboard, MIDI and USB connections, there are two XLR microphone inputs and two USB host connections to accommodate external media. The composite video output allows users to provide karaoke lyric display, or to mimic the touch screen display on an external monitor. A headphone-based cue system is provided as well.
The MP-10 Pro is now available with a U.S. MSRP of $2700.
