Korg Z3 Guitar Synthesizer

   0 reviews  -  1374 views

    In 1989 Korg relased the Z3 Guitar Synthesizer. It consisted of a 19 inch 1U rack coupled with their 24 pin Z3D guitar synthesizer driver for connecting to a guitar of the player's choosing. The synthesizer can also be used as a standalone multitimbral synthesizer. Its synth engine is an FM based unit that is also on the Korg's DS8 and 707 synthesizers as well as the Yamaha DX11 and TX81Z synthesizers.

    The Z3 has two operating modes. Mode A is a simple plug and play the sounds mode, while Mode B offers more advanced programming and editing of the sound engine and how the guitar controller controls external MIDI synths and other MIDI gear. The unit can also act as a multimbral sound module with the play back of 6 sounds.
