    Nice Hamonosaure

    Korg CX3 (Original)Published on 05/21/14 at 06:19

    It's old and the connection is very limited.
    Jacks Hi / Lo + send / return + a jack for pedals. The power cable can not be detached.
    Leslie simulation incorporated, 9 drawbars, 3 presets + 1 preset "pulls"
    Leslie buttons on / off + hi / lo
    2-band EQ, overdrive volume, volume and length of percussion keyclicks volume. Tuner knob for intonation.

    For my needs, the main (and shouting) lack is the reverb.

    UTILIZATION

    Inevitably very intuitive.

    Zippers plastoc are VERY fragile, I prefer not to change mid-song.

    (I myself have no desire to make glissando with palms or fingers back :)).

    SOUNDS

    The sound is nothing great compared to current models.
    Sound mat, the "emasculated" as an organist told me.
    But he marries quite well with a live rock band.

    Leslie is drinkable but nothing more. I use a Korg G4 pedal instead.

    The overdrive is fair at best and the max gain is very small (it is light years ahead of Jon Lord). Again I prefer to combine overdrive G4.

    In my context I use almost exclusively the preset "full" and sometimes the preset "pulls". I have no use for the other 2 presets more typical jazz.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Nice small Hammond.
    I bought it for nonchalance as he was almost free and then it was fun to have a dinosaur painted wood.

    But finally I use for all my concert (only certain songs, I mainly use my XP80). Like what ...
    I love the expression on the faces of the technicians when they see me coming with the tree trunk under his arm.


    It is ideal for my limited needs: textures / agreements
    Do solos on this thing is a bit difficult for me

    I regret the absence of reverb and sustain pedal (yes I know the true either blah Hammond)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I buy for ais live with me and record my parts.
    I found the sound blah, too cold.
    I've been interested in having re-watched a video of Eels live using animal.
    So I look a bit and have seen that r very much better than this plug-in that gives off its heat, the wood does something too.
    The distortion, the leslie, the impact on the ratings, they all have to look like a great, it does not have, of course, but it comes close.
    I still prefer to have an organ like this one on stage, it's another to face an ugly beast any synth.

    The sound is warming you need is the following behind (pedals, amps lamp ..)

    Brief spent € 450 not worth it, so I advice.

    First, it should be understood that the notes I give reflect the age of the instrument ... inevitably, compared to a Roland last generation or there is the editing and storage of sounds, midi ...

    Otherwise, for description, see the other view, it is very comprehensive.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration and editing is super simple because everything is under your fingers! and manual ... I had to lose in 1979 (at the same time I had been born while I was busy with aut 'things!

    I'm just a little flat, the 4 programs are not editable and the last pulls it all thoroughly, lol! Well, why I put him 8 / 10.

    SOUNDS

    SOUNDS

    I play the Trip Hop (genre Portishead, Radiohead or archive) and I'm not an organist or pianist training but I love living hear sounds that are grainy ... and here I am served. It is a Hammond but not really realistic. It is true that Leslie is not very convincing but the saturation is doing very well and the settings are drastic.
    This keyboard really has something personal in the range.

    I am sure will always use the same gear (everyone wants to play the Hammond B4 or Gibson, Fender guitars), it is a bit simplistic. There's plenty of stuff that sound with its own identity and this organ is gone.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had 3 or 4 years and I enjoyed myself with (since I'm not very usual keyboard). He played reggae, blues, trip-hop, rock and he has always given something more than digital emulations cold to die.
    I have other keyboards lying around and that's really my favorite but let's be honest, this is the only quality I have so if I compare to a Yamaha Electone ... nothing to see.
    I bought it by chance and the purchase price was really pathetic (20 euros) and what's funny is that neither the seller (inheritance) nor I knew the quality of this instrument.

    Obviously I would do this choice. But I could separate myself to make money on.
