The Korg Pa600MY is a musical arranger keyboard based on the Korg Pa600. It has added unique Malaysian ethnic instruments and musical styles alongside the classic keyboard sounds of piano, brass and synthesizer. The keyboard was developed as a joint collaboration between Korg and Malaysian distributor CK Music. It was created with the aim to "preserve and promote Malaysia’s unique blend and harmony of our three ethnic races".[1]

Ethnic instruments of Malaysia's three main races (Malay, Chinese and Indian) are sampled in the studio with ethnic musicians and their respective instruments. Launched in Malaysia on the 29th April 2016, the keyboard was well received and covered by the Malaysian press.
