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

Korg X3
I find the proper key. The joystick is rather pleasant to use.
Embedded yes ca effects does the trick but nothing extraordinary.
A little short on polyphony without AC is dramatic.


Yes. it's simple, effective, well think. It takes a little time to edit his patches relative to what we have today but it is direct and clear so we are content.

The manual is exemplary, clear, easy to read. When I got it I have learned enormously.

The integrated sequencer ... is just another age. it is not bad but today that uses this?


The strings are really good and this place very well in a mix. The choirs are extra. Really. Even the GM preset is used. In such simple and effective it's perfect. The brass at the beginning asser are ugly, and become proper after mucking around. Ditto for the piano there is a way to draw the right thing on this side.
The organs are good, great church organ.

The synth sounds are nice general way. but I must admit that everything soundscape / FX has aged a bit.

The drumkits are good too. Edit was a bit boring but it sounds.


I do not even know how long more I have. I keep it for its sounds, although I prefer my sample and took it everywhere with me.
I have no idea how many synth I've tried. but I find it much better than many more recent machines. For example a Triton LE is a dull side.

Yes ca no longer cuts the very expensive these machines.
And I love that sound enormously common Korg has more machines of this era.

Workstation Keyboard 61 keys (5 octaves), 32 oscillators (polyphonic 32 channel knowing that certain sounds can use 2 channels)

Possde the famous joystick for changing the pitch modulation and an paramtre customizable filters envelopes / amplification and effects. It is also dott the after-touch that a amne Ralite some of the instruments.

It consists of a dual processor 47 rel tempra effects that are available to choose from.

Each sound (PROG) is ditable for each parameter. Factory custom settings are all changed. Are available two banks of 100 patches over the bank's non ditable GM sounds.
The keyboard also possde 7 plus 4 user kits batteries (included in standard patch).

These sounds are a bass waveform library consists of more than 1000 wave (drums included) r-samples every 10 half-ons around.

Sounds can be taken in combinations (COMBI).
These combinations can accumulate up to 8 programs (each of which can take two oscilloscope, so a note is of little use until 16 oscilloscope, but the sound is more than rich ...) and the splitter or window from the VLOC. All combinations are also ditables.
Provisions are also two banks of 100 patches.

It consists of a MIDI squenceur supporting up to 32,000 vnements rpartissables 10 music. Del must be used in the floppy drive to do its backups and free the memory.

It also possde card readers for extensions to add a card supplmentaires waveforms (one complment expander) and to add a memory card user adding 2 programs for banks, two banks for 32,000 combinations and not for supplmentaires squenceur ...

Any data can be backup to the floppy disk drive which is good security.


In terms of use gnrale is really intuitive and conut After a few days of practice, we find his ball quickly.

Ditions are all easy to ACCS, some modifiable directly scne. The only regret is the lack of lines on the screen posters (1 only).

The manual when he was good although franais trs (I say was because the translations are made gnralement a hurry!). Everything is clearly explained until the MIDI implmentation to get things back on a computer squenceur (Cubase, Logic or SONAR).

The squenceur Submitted lgre however weak as the fluidity of vnements if you charge a lot (Exceeds the number of channels available). But for a good model or a turning support is more than enough trs, APRS if you want more, there are squenceurs computer ...


I think the varieties of style sound allows everyone to find part of his happiness. Same today, with his age I'm not its sound.

With AI technology implementations, the sounds are trsralistes to the winds. However, less so for a guitar that still trs "synthetic" ...

Fortunately, the range of effects is vast and trs good thereby making better ism. I would even care, they can be dangerous so powerful (I'm surprised with dj is the gain of the distortion that silent .... 9 su 99!)

The expression is good trs and settings according to each game (VLOC diffrent curves are available).

The sounds:
<ul> Sax is exceptional;
Drum and percussion trs good;
Keyboards are nice;
Guitar less practitioner. </ul>


I use it for over 10 years and it is always my needs (concerts & home studio as a matre keyboard and / or expander). I never had any concern for electronic order.

I only regret the number of oscilloscope 32 which is low in fast combinations and use in the squenceur.

What j'apprcie most is to have a tool with all the keys in hand to make a composition. In a hurry no need to leave your PC for squence or its effects complter or expanders to accumulate variation on sound.

The report is excellent for qualitprix era. Notament I speak of the quality of finish, sounds about the professional aspect of the tool to a budget that is hnnete.

I deprecated on the other hand of buying the card expansion of waveforms that come at the cost of an expander, unless prices have much chutte ... The memory expansion card can be a good addition!

Today, in this price range, I think I had a choice but an almost equivalent MODEL more taste of the day ...

It is a lment cl for a home studio whose musical style is varied.

We do this over the keyboard, it has not been as successful as the M1 although it is even better!


The ergonomic hand, well ... is what was done at the time of its kind it is still damn good.
The manual is very well done and very complete.


The sound: This is his strong point!.
Believe me if you want, I also have a Triton Classic, well I think for the "big sound", it is better than the Triton base.
In addition there is a plethora of sound banks on the net, some are really excellent.
With an editor, that facilitates the job well, you get out of wonders! Even imitate Oberheim (gender Ob-12) so if I tell you (what the Triton is not)
The keyboard: As a marvel. (Italian manufacturing, with felt and all that ...). In short, with a touch of the possibilities of expression that I have not found on any of my other synths.
This is more than the 10/10 rating.


It's been seven years since I use it and I can not get enough.
Sounds deep and powerful as I love them ....
It is not designed to reproduce sounds of instruments (piano, trumpet etc ... this is very bad, it's going good violins in a pinch ...) but it is well known in their Korg were never very good at it (must go to Roland or Yamaha for that), but the sound "synthetic" there is still a giant compared to what the same fate now in the same price range. (Bought new 7500 F at the time)

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

I use this synth as a controller keyboard in Cubase LE / OSX 10.4.
I've never dipped into the lair of the beast.


Surely Heuu ... than I'm too immersed, but every time I want to use a sound, I change everything and delete the sounds and settings So: OFF> ON.
No manual ... Lost ...


Hum hum ...
Many say that the sounds did not change the years that followed.
I have always found the hideous synth ...

Touch is moldy. It is not worth a good piano feel heavy, I do believe I'll ever do. Too sensitive, too soft, it was not the feeling, velocity ... pffff ... what is hard. No nuances ... But that's a problem I have with all the synths.


I use it to enter the melodies (garageband, cubase) as well as MIDI and write partoches. I am willing to use it to make sheets of background noise on components but I think I will stop here, ergonomics does not suit me, and already very difficult to play with.
I am lucky to have on hand ... It's better than nothing and it does while waiting for a piano to quilt! : P
