I’ve had the Pandora for two weeks now and I’ve used it extensively. So far, I am pleased that I bit the bullet and shelled out the money for this thing. It’s loaded with all sorts of features, and most importantly, it prevents me from being turned off my instrument because of crappy sound (I am on vacation, about 7000 miles away from my beloved amps and mixers and doodads and geegaws).

Great new toy !

Actually this device is much more than a toy. I record weekly with a keyboard player and I no longer need to take my guitar amplifier to this session. I just carry the PX5D along with the necessary cords and attach it directly to his mixer which is hooked directly to his PC. I can change guitar sounds as the music requires. I can also plug the PX5D into my PC via a USB port and quickly edit the user settings for sounds and also program rhythm chains easily. The device seems to be very well made and has performed flawlessly so far .

This device is just too much fun. I thought there was actually 700 rythms, but it does not really. It has 128 rhythms, which is composed of drums (three variations) and bass (three variations). Bass can be set to off, drums don’t have that option. The device is very easy to customize/change the sounds using the free software that comes with it. I have to read the instructions to figure out how to set the chains on the device itself, but with the software is a breeze. There twenty chains that can be customized. Each chain has 16 tracks with the option of repeating each rhythm a max of 4 times per track. Creating a rhythm for a song is easy. Like I said before there are three variations of drum and bass and a key (scale) can be set for each individual track. This is useful when you have a key change in the middle of a song. The phraser is awesome and very easy to use. press phraser and start playing. it will automatically stop recording when you stop playing and continue looping automatically. This is fun. You’ll be hooked on it for hours.

GREAT processor!

Rarely do I take the time to rate a product, but I’ve been very happy with the PX5 since I got it for Christmas. It’s been REALLY fun! It’s easy to use, sounds really good, and makes playing a blast. If you’re seriously thinking of getting a processor, I highly suggest this product. The ONLY complaint I have is that the power cord is not included. It doesn’t seem to be sucking down batteries, but I’d rather run in with an AC adapter. I’ll have to purchase that soon….. Overall, 5 stars!

This is easy to recommend for practice, for demos and for fun

There are plenty of guitar effects emulators and guitar amp emulators out there — many of them are more elaborate than the PX5D and involve software on your PC as well as hardware that your guitar can plug into. If you’re that much of a historian and stickler for authenticity, go for it! I’m recommending the PX5D, though, because 1) it’s tiny (the size of a pack of cards); 2) the quality of the sampling is absolutely fantastic; and 3) it transforms a sloppy, poor student like myself into Hendrix and Gilmore, even if it is just in my headphones 🙂 . As someone who owned the PX4, I really have to thank the staff at KORG for not giving up on this line — and for making it more powerful.

Love it!

I buy each newer version of the Korg Guitar multi effects processor, and am never disappointed in the expansion of choices, including rhythm and effects. This version is quite user friendly at a basic level, with plenty of room to get deeper into the capabilities. A bargain!

This is an excellent practice tool

This is an excellent practice tool. Great for practicing over drum beats that are easily changed. Bass Key can be changed or turned off. Sound is pretty decent, not performance quality. Looping is okay but if you record over 4 bars it will start to get pretty lossy. If you are just looping a few bars it’s great because it counts you in and turns off the loop so all you have to do is play. I do wish it had more rock , blues, and country drum beats. Way too many urban beats.

More complicated than the Pandora mini

I’m a beginner at the guitar and wanted something easy to use with effects. I purchased a Pandora mini and found it extremely easy to use but lacking in features. I saw this unit and figured I’d return the mini and keep this one instead.
