Korg R3 Description

New for NAMM Jan 07, and replacing the highly successful, retro-styled MicroKorg, the 8 voice polyphonic R3 synthesizer & vocoder is based on the MMT (Multi Modelling Technology) sound generation engine of the Korg RADIAS along with the Kaossilator, has full size keys (the miniature keys were one of the few criticisms of the MicroKorg), a better mic (XLR on the front) for use with the excellent 16-band vocoder (again from the RADIAS), and a USB connection for easy access to the bundled, stand-alone PC-based editor for creating, changing & storing sounds.

Slicker and more professional looking than the cute though still useful MicroKorg, the Korg R3 is set to be another classic from Korg, for creating traditional, thick analogue sounds both in the studio and on stage... a corker.

25.00" (W) x 10.63" (D) x 2.99" (H), 6.17 lbs
