Amazing Sound Reproduction
A showcase of incredible audio sampling techniques, the Korg SV-2 delivers amazingly accurately recreations of classic keyboard instruments and grand piano sounds.
Using only the most well maintained instruments and utilising the modern multi-mic recording methods, Korg have perfectly captured every sound.
Each aspect of the sound is saved in the RX Layer including the slap of the tine, the release of the hammer and the click of the contacts. This allows you to mix these elements to your own exacting specifications to create the perfect sound.
What's more, Korg have made sure to capture the full dynamic range of each of these instruments. From pianississimo (ppp) to fortississimo (fff), each facet of the timbre and volume has been captured for the Korg SV-2.
Captured so carefully and faithfully are a wide variety of amazing pianos and you can access them all with the touch of a button.
These instruments include some of the world's greatest grand pianos including pianos from Italy, Germany, Austria and Japan.
For more intimate sounds, you have the options of authentic German and Japanese upright pianos.
Also included are the sounds of a real honky-tonk piano and a genuine "tack" piano.
Along with these are a pair of two beautiful harpsichords from France and Italy.
The sounds of each of these instruments can be played alone, layered with other sounds or split across the keyboard.
Carefully Captured Classics
The Korg SV-2 Stage Vintage also has a wide variety of electric pianos and keyboard sounds.
Electro-mechanical, transistorised, tape-driven, analogue and digital keyboards are all included in the Korg SV-2's menagerie of inspiring sounds.
Nearly all the American tine and reed models are included along with a Japanese electric grand and even a rare German electric piano.
There are also analogue, digital, VPM, FM and sampled versions of many electric pianos including the hugely popular KORG M1 piano.
Plus, you have access to a wide selection of organs from tone-wheel classics such as the VOX combo and Italian transistor to American tube organs and even church and cathedral organs.
You can even add strings to your music with a 70s-era analogue string machine, prog-era tape strings and a warm orchestral section all included in the Korg SV-2.
Furthermore, the Korg SV-2 Stage Piano features mallets, brass, choir sounds, guitar and bass sounds and even solo and pad synths - all of which can be used to create amazing layered sounds or handy splits.
Equaliser, Effects and Amp Models
Really allowing you to enhance your sound with the Korg SV2 are its several built-in effects and amp models.
Six independent stages of studio-grade signal processing are featured in the Korg SV-2 and a Korg Valve Reactor is present.
With the Valve Reactor circuit, you get the beautiful warmth and edgy aggression that you can only get from an authentic 12AX7A vacuum tube.
Just like the faithfully captured instruments, the effects are also incredibly faithful to the originals.
Effect stages include:
- 3-Band Equaliser
- Pre FX (Red Compressor, Treble Boost, U-Vibe, VBibrato, Tremolo, VOX Wah)
- Amp Model (Clean, Twin, Tweed, AC30, Boutique, Organ, plus several types of Cabinet Simulators and Noise Reduction)
- Modulation FX (Classic Chorus, Black Chorus, Orange Phaser, Small Phaser, MX Flanger, Rotary)
- Reverb/Delay (Room, Plate, Hall, Spring, Tape Echo and Stereo Delay)
- Limiter (Stereo Limiter, Stereo Mastering Limiter)
Creative Control, Powerful Performance
Installed in the Korg SV-2 Stage Vintage digital piano is a Korg RH3 graded-hammer action keybed.
This amazing keybed gives you the same feeling you have when playing a real grand piano with the low register feeling heavier while the upper register keys are lighter.
What's more, Korg SV-2's RH3 keyboard is incredibly sensitive so it accurately captures and reproduces all the nuances and expression of your performance.
You can even select one of eight distinct velocity curves to match the Korg SV2's keyboard response to your technique or performance style.
Selecting all your sounds and other features is also incredibly intuitive.
There's no display screen with endless menus to navigate through. Instead, everything is there on the control panel so you have instant access to anything you could need.
Also, the Korg SV-2 comes with a DS-2H Damper pedal included which responds to half-pedalling allowing for an amazingly authentic piano response.
Comprehensive Connectivity for Modern Convenience
The Korg SV-2 gives you the benefit of all the audio jacks, data connections and pedal ports that you could want in a modern professional stage piano.
Not only do you have Left and Right 1/4" audio outputs but you'll also find Left and Right XLR outputs allowing you to connect directly to a studio console or onstage snake without needing any direct boxes or impedance matching transformers.
A headphone output is onboard for easy onstage monitoring or private practice.
Din-style MIDI IN and MIDI OUT jacks are also present for easy integration with other MIDI instruments and equipment while a USB port allows you to connect the Korg SV2 to your computer.
The Korg SV-2 features three pedal connections; Damper, Pedal 1 and Pedal 2. You can use the included DS-2H Damper pedal with the Damper pedal connection. Pedal 1 is perfect for a switch type pedal but can also be used as a piano Sostenuto pedal or even a Fast/Slow switch when using the Rotary Pro effect.
Pedal 2 accepts wither a sweep-type pedal or an additional switch pedal. With a sweep pedal you can get some amazing, authentic Wah effects and enjoy highly accurate organ volume control. With an additional switch pedal you have access to all three piano pedal functions, adding the Una Corda function.
Free SV-2 Editor Software
Making the Korg SV-2 even easier to control and get great results is the free SV02 Editor software for Windows and Mac.
Using this application you have convenient and easy access to editing, organising and storing edited sounds in your favourites.
SV-2 Editor all gives you access to hundreds of other sounds that you can't immediately access from the Korg SV-2's control panel. You can even exchange sounds with other users.
