Description
The Korg 707 is a 4 operator 8 voice FM synthesizer released in 1987.

DIGITAL VOICE GENERATION

The 707 features warm, digitally generated sounds, each of which combines two oscillators to create rich and complex tones. Each oscillator can be set to a variety of waveforms, By using separate EG'S (Envelope Generators) to control each oscillator's timbre and level, the character of each note can change in time, providing the random tonal variations that occur in actual acoustic instruments. Natural, expressive acoustic sounds plus exciting contemporary synthesizer voices: the 707 can do it all!

PROGRAMS AND COMBINATIONS

The 707 can store up to 100 programs in its internal memory. You can easily edit existing programs to make your own programs. Also available are three kinds of program combinations. The LAYER mode lets you play two programs at once across the entire range of the keyboard. The DOUBLE mode lets you assign separate programs to the upper and lower sections of the keyboard. The innovative MULT1 mode allows you to select up to eight different voices, each with its own programmable volume, for real-time 8-track multi-timbral performance, using an external sequencer such as the KORG SQD-8.

RESPONSIVE KEYBOARD

A full 49-note keyboard (C2 - C6) responds to your playing with Velocity Sensitivity and After Touch to control both volume and timbre. All programs can be played in full 8-note polyphony.

SLEEK DESIGN AND PORTABILITY

The 707, with its stylish looks, optimum controller placement, compact size, and light weight, serves as an excellent portable synthesizer/remote keyboard controller. Two sturdy strap locks on either side of the instrument are provided for attaching a shoulder strap.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

A range of performance features let you add real expression to your playing. The Pitch Bend Control Wheel enables you to bend the overall pitch of the instrument and the Modulation/Volume Control Wheel lets you modulate pitch, vibrato and timbre or change the overall volume of the instrument. The operation of both Control Wheels may be reversed for performing convenience when using the 707 as a strap-on keyboard. The Performance Editor includes controllers for timbre, envelope length, portamento, and other vitally useful performance functions.

RAM CARD/ROM CARD

More programs and combinations are available on optional KORG ROM (Read Only Memory) cards, which can be loaded into the 707's internal memory in seconds. Also available are RAM (Random Access Memory) cards on which you can store your own programs and program combinations. ROM and RAM cards from the KORG DS-8 Digital Synthesizer can also be used with the 707.

FOOTSWITCH

Optional footswitches are available from KORG. These can be assigned to control a variety of functions, including program change, portamento, and sustain. 8. MIDI COMPATIBILITY The 707 is fully compatible with MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) allowing it to interface with other MIDI devices such as sequencers, drum machines and effect units. See your KORG dealer for details on the wide range of advanced MIDI equipment available from KORG.
