I need an honest opinion, if I have to confess, I donít even know where to start or what to do with it.

I recently bought a really nice, top shape, spotless Korg Pa1X Pro, just looking at itís a beauty, however, here comes the difficult part:

I cannot seem to find how to use the sampling feature, I have other two keyboard pianos and I want to record some sounds from those 2 KBs to the Pa1X Pro, but the manual doesnít help enough, and for some reason I canít seem to find a way do it, I canít even find out whether it has a hard drive or not, so here is my concern:

I want to keep it, I have played around the drums + arranger features, and I was very much impressed with them, as well as some sounds, however it didnít have the sounds I was expecting I thought it had, so I am divided if I should keep it or should I sell it; again, the condition I bought itís just spotless, so I donít think I can find other Pa1X Pro in the future in the same condition w/o waiting for a long time, if I ever want to have it back, so this is something I am still debating.

If I am able to make the sampling feature to work, I will keep it, because the sounds I am looking to record in it are just the ones I play the most, and they are kind of unique, so these sounds are a must to have in this Pa1x Pro, and I donít even know if I have to add some kind of storage to make this feature to work; if I have to add some additional storage, I donít think this would be worth it depending on the cost of some storage upgrades.

So, I would like to know how to find out if my KB has a Hard Drive, I can sample some sounds, also how to operate the sampling feature, because even when I have read and used the manual to follow the process, it just doesn't work, it doesnít record the sounds I try to sample.

Because itís really nice and top shape, what I think it works in its favor is the fact that I bought from a previously closed studio for a very low price (less than $1K), so I am willing to put some $$ into it just not too much because of its age and the ability to find good quality upgrades.

So please ask anything you would want to know if this is something you would be thinking of keeping; I play the KBs in my church, so using these sounds is a must, however if I cannot find a way to solve these concerns, I am going to have to sell it.

Again my personal choice is to find a way, preferable not too expensive, to make the sampling to work, but if I canít, even if I can find a use for the rest of its features, itís very hard for me to see how can I use it in my church w/o these sounds.

I successfully learned how to sample and create multisamples from the User Manual (2.52 latest version) - on page 215 there is a walkthrough tutorial - it works!! I had no idea about sampling at all and managed to get it going from this tutorial. Make sure you regularly save your work during the process.

Your PA1XPro (76 key) will have a Hard drive installed
If you cannot get the manual (for OS 2.52) please let me know
