Korg S3 Rhythm Workstation

   (0 reviews)

The Korg S3 rhythm workstation is not just another drum machine. but a total production workstation that incorporates many key components used by all MIDI systems: Korg Sonic Integrity (SI) sound sources featuring the latest in 16 ­bit PCM sound synthesis technology, two built-in digital effects and a sequencer that functions as a multitrack recorder.

This recorder may be synchronized with either a clock signal from other MIDI equipment or Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) timing signals from film and video equipment. PCM sound sources: The built-in sound sources use the Korg Sonic Integrity (Sl) sound synthesis system. which combines the latest in 16-bit PCM sampling technology with the same advanced editing capabilities found on samplers and synthesizers. These fully programmable sound sources may be played from a synthesizer, sequencer or other external MIDI device.

Multitrack recording: The built-in sequencer has a total of eight tracks: four for recording basic patterns and four for combining them into songs and adding real-time recording. Song tracks are normally paired with the corresponding pattern tracks, but changing these connections so that the pattern tracks use inter- nal sound sources and the song tracks use external ones permits full 8-track operation.

Multi-timbre sound module: Assigning different MIDI input channels to tracks 1 ~ 4 turns the 83 into a multi- timbre sound module capable of simultaneously sounding four different percussion kits.
