This product brings together a performance interface with control over the 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 120 GB internal hard drive. The motorized 60 mm crossfader allows creative DJ-style mixing. Songs can be saved into multiple playlists, and the database can be sorted using any criteria. Playlists can be imported, or created on the fly. The Browser gives a view of everything available in the selected genre. Using the Find function, the MP-10 Pro will search the database for the users song. Once found, the song can be sent to either of the two players.

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 Pa500 arranger keyboard and can also be played from an external MIDI device. The front panel offers four assignable performance pads for triggering sound effects and musical phrases. On-board effects are available for the internal players and MIDI engine. For the entertainer, singer or master of ceremonies, 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 files to be customized to suit the entertainers style.
The MP-10 Pro features Korgs color TouchView display. In addition to MIDI and USB connections, there are connections for a PC keyboard. Two microphone inputs (one XLR and one ") are designed to assure compatibility with nearly any mic. The video outputs (S-Video and Composite) are designed to allow for karaoke style lyrics, chord changes or even cores to be displayed on an external video monitor. A headphone-based cue system is provided as well.
