Korg M3R
- Is it a model or Rack "rack"?

It is an expander rack.

- How many sounds effects? What styles?

Or specs of the machine.

- Are they edited? Utility via a Mac / PC?

Difficult editable Pc, the only commercial buggent to death and are paid by an editor there against hardware, RE-1, which I highly recommend.

- Are there any extensions?

Yes, I think.

- What connection (Audio, MIDI, ...)? ...

See specs.


-The general configuration is it simple?

Relatively complex, the size of the screen and the interface does not help, consider buying the RE-1 as a pre-requisite to use easily.

-The editing sounds and effects is it easy?

Horrible condition, see above.

-The manual is clear and sufficient?

Quickly flew, it seemed clear.


-The sounds they agree your style of music?

This is a general synth, you can edit sounds strongly, so in the end we do what we want, more or less. I do strongly oriented electro music, it is very suitable for this purpose.

- Are they realistic?

Not really.

- Effects are they effective and responsive?

Strong point of the expander, it is rich in effects (delay, distortion, flanger, reverb ...), and they are really really good!

- The expression is good? (Response to velocity, aftertouch to)?


- What are the sounds you prefer, you hate? ...

I love the layers, they are deep and trippy, you might as well work the textures, but where this is fantastic, it is well-typed for leads 80s, there is pure happiness. Memory it seems to me that the bass is not terrible. And we can create synthetic sounds good too. Really, I love the sound of this bike, it compensates its flaws.


- How long have you been using?

About 1 year.

- What is so special that you like most and least?

The +
- Sound.
- Effects.

The -
- Requires almost mandatory purchase of RE-1 to avoid hair pulling.

- Did you try many other models before buying it?

TX81Z, D110, old stuff which ...

- How would you rate quality / price ratio?

With the RE-1, very good. Without the RE-1, bad.
- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

I would do the same choice, namely the M3R and RE-1, but not M3R alone, this is the worst rack I had ergonomics point of view.

Korg M3R
Small rack of ERRF M1/M1R!

Systm synthse of AI (treatment numrique intgral)
16 voices, 16 oscillators
Internal memory: 16Mbit PCM
Systmes 2 multi-effects
100 programmes/100 combinations and DMOS 5
Outputs: 1 / L 2 / R, 3, 4 and headphone
2 card connectors RAM / ROM / PCM
LCD-16x2 rtro clairbr /> Options: Cards RAM (MCR-03), ROM cards, maps and PCM tlcommande RE1


Trs simple use (only one game mode).
Possibility of being controlled by the KORG RE1! In this case, the ergonomics are perfect!
Manuel clear enough but no more ... (As usual 'at KORG)


Sounds like it's M1 ... Same dynamic, same multi-samples ... We like it or not, but i like me! The effects are deadly ...
One of the best sounds I've Roads cost! (Preset: Touchroad)
Good horns, good ground trs ...
The kit of drums M1 ...
All sounds can be used as is ...
THE 90 80/dbut the end!


What I like most is the sound KORG 90's in a good 1U Simple and easy to use.
The only real limitation from an M1 or M1R is the impossibility of making programs DOUBLE osc ... But hey, by superimposing two programs Combi mode, you get exactly the same as its bigger synthse ERRF!
To cost! (A buy if you possdez RE1!)
Well I put 8 / 10 in overall rating is a lot but it's his "almost vintage" of M1 (at least legendary), which has!
