The Korg R3 is a powerful yet compact synthesizer with sounds, form, and features that will attract all manner of musicians and producers.
The Korg R3 is a full-fledged synthesizer that provides an easy and affordable way to enjoy sophisticated synthesis and advanced sound creation. In a compact and light-weight body, it packs 37 full-size, velocity sensing keys, along with two-timbre/eight-voice performance power.
The sound generator section of the Korg R3 uses the same acclaimed MMT (Multiple Modeling Technology) used by the RADIAS, delivering thick, gutsy, and crisp analog sounds. With quality that will satisfy both professionals and beginners, the Korg R3 is a great choice for adding synth sounds on stage or in music production.
The Korg R3 features a dual filter structure that can be configured in series, parallel or an individual structure allowing each oscillator to have its own dedicated filter. Filter 1 is a multi-mode resonant design that lets you continuously vary between various low-pass, high-pass and band reject characteristics. Filter 2 has a switchable, multi-mode resonant design that also includes comb filtering, which can be made to feed back in order to boost multiple series of overtones, giving you amazing potential for generating unique tonal changes.
The Korg R3’s powerful vocoder function lets you use your voice to add a distinctive tonal character to the sound of the oscillator, creating "speaking" tones. The vocoder consists of sixteen filter bands, and can replicate the classic vocoder sounds of the past, as well as letting you dramatically transform the timbral character by adjusting the level and pan of each frequency band to create absolutely original vocoder sounds. The Korg R3 comes with an XLR-connector gooseneck microphone, so you can start enjoying this superb vocoder functionality right away.
The Korg R3 has two external audio input jacks. By selecting an external audio source as an oscillator, you can filter the external audio source, or apply effects to it using the full range of processing potential available for the internal waveforms. This is a great way to create unique and original sounds, for processing audio loops from a computer and even playing another instrument through the Korg R3.
You can connect the Korg R3 to your computer via its USB connector, and use the included stand-alone editor/librarian software to conveniently edit the sounds, using the enhanced graphics that the computer provides. You can edit, create, save, and store programs to the Korg R3 or to your computer. Sounds you edit or create using the editor/librarian software can be used in realtime on the Korg R3 itself.
