A nice toy not very professional. - Reviews Korg R3

Synthesis level.

This is a synth "analog modeling", it is multisynthesis and has a good vocoder. The synthetic possibilities are very friendly. The vocoder sounds good. on the other hand, there are no buttons "freeze" (to maintain a "aaaaaah" without having to shout loudly). As said elsewhere, it is limited polyphony Monophonic (or "bi timbral"). There is no digital output and analog output are not up especially in terms of shield (plastic case ...). So pay attention to its electromagnetic environment (computer stuff).

At the hardware level ... I'm sorry, but it's too "Mattel toy" for my taste.

Ah yes, the gooseneck microphone is unusable when you type on the keyboard it captures all the vibrations. A greenhouse micro head would be more suitable!


Usage is fairly simple and editing software supplied are more than correct.


Not too bad for a Korg digital synth. The sounds are pretty good anti-aliased.


Sorry to say, it is a good synth in terms of synthesis, but in hardware ... Bontempi was even better.
