Korg M3 73 Introduction

 Korg M3 73 Key Keyboard

Korg M3 73 Introduction The M3 heralds the third generation of Korg Workstations. The M1 started it all, first appearing in 1988 to bring the world a new concept called the music workstation. It went on to become the best selling workstation in history, and was further expanded and
enhanced through the T and O1W series. Trinity defined a new level of innovations including touch screen technology and configurable effects, and was the forbearer of the successful TRITON range of products. Now Korg Is
Poised To Redefine The Workstation Category Once Again. The M3 features a number of innovations distilled from the flagship OASYS including the new EDS Enhanced Definition Synthesis sound generator derived from the HD 1 engine design, the advanced second generation KARMA functionality, and the multi purpose control surface.


Adding innovations such as the new concept of virtualized hardware that allows an even closer integration with DAW systems, Drum Tracks which provide a instant groove to play along with, and the new Korg Komponent System concept that facilitates more flexible system construction, the M3 music workstationsampler opens a new and exciting page in music making its the workstation that rightfully deserves to wear the M that started it all. Enhanced Definition Synthesis a new horizon of sound making potential The M3 features a newly developed EDS sound generating system based on a new chip design that was developed in parallel with the HD 1 engine from the flagship OASYS. It takes full advantage of the M3s 256 Mbytes of PCM source material which is a veritable best of from the OASYS. Using Korgs advanced voicing technology, the 1,028 multisamples, 1,606 drum samples, dual oscillators, four level velocity switchingcrossfadinglayering, and stereo sampling allow for an enormous range of high quality, detailed, and expressive sounds. The filter section, a vital part of the sound creation process, lets you simultaneously use two resonant filters for each oscillator, and can be configured in series or parallel. Four filter types are provided low pass, high pass, band pass, and band reject. The amp section features a driver circuit that gives the sound a sense of edge and character, along with low boost to help shake the walls when needed. Integrated 3 band EQ allows tonal sculpting without needing to go to the effects section. Detailed envelope generators, abundant modulation routings, plus the all new AMS Mixers for advanced processing all combine to provide a level of sound shaping far beyond previous possibilities. Effects The all important effect section provides up to five Insert effects, two Master effects, and one Total effect. In addition to great choruses, flangers, phasers, delays and reverbs, the 170 effect types include dynamic processing effects such as compressor and limiter, amp modeling and speaker simulation effects using Korgs proprietary REMS modeling technology, and evocative effects like.
