mooseherman's review"Awesome Analog synth"

Korg MaxiKorg 800 DV
This is an old-school analog synth, made by Korg. This synth is duophonic. It's got 2 analog oscillators, VCF filters, and a ring modulator. It has 3 1/2 octaves. It can be set up to play monophonically with two seperate oscillators or duophonically. Thus it has double of all the controls, so that it can be played with both voices. Basically, this comes down to playing single-note melodic lines, and given that limitation, it's got some really great sounds.

UTILIZATION

Messing with the different parameters on this synthesizer is somewhat difficult to figure out at first, at least for me. But it really just comes down to messing around with the different sounds. It takes time to figure out, as most synths do. But in time it can be really useful. There's a lot of really awesome sounding tones you can get out of it. The setup isn't too difficult. When recording with it I usually go directly into the pre-amp, as it's generally easier. I haven't seen a manual for this so I can't vouch for its quality.

SOUNDS

I like the sounds of this synth a lot. As it's an old analog synth, I don't really dwell too much on how "realistic" the sounds are, because they aren't really that close to real instruments. A good synth, in my mind, should sound like a synth, and not an imitation of something else. Therefore, I find this synth to be exceptional. It's great for synth bass lines, as it has fat, warm bassy sounds that can be a nice alternative to a bass guitar. It also has great high-pitched, singing tones, great for melodic lines like those used in the Cars and other New Wave stuff from that era. It's got reasonable touch sensitivity and aftertouch. Definitely responsive to dynamics. I think the oscillators and modulators give it some really awesome sounds.

OVERALL OPINION

I like the sound of this synth the best. It can be frustrating that it only has two voices, and most often I'll use it monophonically, but I do think it has a nice sound. I'd say overall it's probably going to run you a pretty penny, but unless you have some AMAZING analog synth simulator that I am not aware of, I don't think you'll be able to find much that sounds like this much cheaper. I've played a few synths that are like this, and while this one isn't as nice as some of those were, it's still got a lot going on. I definitely recommend this if you can find it.

Korg MaxiKorg 800 DV
duophonic its insured fabulous big time travel provided

UTILIZATION

Use a bit unusual but very simple commands to start up you can go from one sound to another on stage with a little practice

SOUNDS

70es typed it only looks like these brothers 700S and 700
very soft and grainy filter and bawling through the ring modulator

OVERALL OPINION

I had two at one time, ONE ME stolen by some JULIAN CROSS NANTES I research since 2004 (also if you have information I'm interested) this man has abused my kindness for me strip my 800DV I had for years (plus other material by the way) I made the mistake of selling the second was a good friend of Paris thinking that I could retrieve the first
since I have a 700S that I love and remember the good times spent with my 800DV
a synth that is unlike no other, a must-have with MS20 and PS of the same brand

Korg MaxiKorg 800 DV
Go see the page of "700", forget the "S" which is on top. Add the possibility for the oscillator down 64 '(LA 4 middle octave below 440 Hz). The 800-DV is multiplied by two: two Korg 700 superposs physically but also in the sound.
You can put the two synths in unison, but there are also several possibilities to perform all necessary a voice from the other. Out of the two voices spare if you want.
The 700 has an internal bin for storing the power cord (useful!), Not 800. Too bad!

UTILIZATION

Each section is simple handle, but less clear than a 700. In dpart not understand it very little because the distribution of functions is fanciful. However it is convenient for synthesis of scne. So, once it is done, all is well trs.

SOUNDS

Not really INTERESTED in playing two voices polyphony. In the era c'tait fashion ... on the other hand, in unison mode, four more PWM oscillator (simulation of two oscillators each), a really big sound to play solo! Note the existence of a gnrateur pink noise (sonar submarine) playable, which is a rarity in the world of synth and that is not otherwise available with a real synth research.
A little spcial ... but it has to be can attach.

OVERALL OPINION

I purchased this synth the era of sampling everything is, so for a mouth bread. It REPRESENTATIVES an era that I have apprcie because everyone DLIR with this kind of synths that REPRESENTATIVES well this state of mind. No way that I spare.

Fredglass's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg MaxiKorg 800 DV
Well, this synth in 1973, not Midif. These are two synths for a single keypad (trs heavy transport) so duophonic. The advantage of this particularity is that many Obviously two sounds, so diffrent two waveforms are combined. The little less, if you want to quibble is that sometimes, rglages identical, the two sounds are trslgrement dsaccordes towards each other (but hey, this is not dramatic). For cons, I can not find the keyboard trs enjoyable: I find it slow (not fast solos possible) and trs fragile: I am always afraid of breaking it. No pitch bend either ...

UTILIZATION

I have no manual ... Nanmoins, it's easy: one button = one function scabies. In addition, this synth a trs ct pdago INTERESTED because colorful diffrent agrmenter come all the buttons. on the other hand, and as I mentioned above dj: the two Co-ordinators can lead synths as much trs beautiful sounds that things that sound wrong. You just have to give a bit of trouble (just!).

SOUNDS

It's not a moog, for the cons I never would sell! The bass is terrible! While fat will. I do not use nearly as. There is also a basic arpgiateur: TRS 70's (those who squeaker squeaker squeaker of Manir cyclic). The great thing is, with two synths sound itself DDouble = sound in two of four lines constitus Different. Personally, I find that more convenient vector synths.

OVERALL OPINION

I have about two years and it is true that we must take some time before the connatre bte. Over time we learn apprcier its grain and its operation especially trs. I am glad trs and I will highlight in my next recording (even if to sustain rglages trs limits will not simplify my chih). And then there was this synthesis of the mouth right? I do not know what his current cte, but it must be a good qualitprix saw sounds good fat coming out of this machine.
