Product Description

Korg MaxiKorg 800Dv for sale. This one has some signs of use but has had a thorough going over (report below) and it's ready to go to work.

The CV/Gate mod was already done when it came to us. Working well (now we've fixed it...). Jacks are for separate CV/gate control of upper and lower voice. Top and bottom switches select between keyboard control and external, middle switch selects repeat function for upper or lower voice.

This synth can be thought of as two minKorgs in one box, but that doesn't really do it justice as, with the extra features and functionality, the sum is definitely greater than the parts. It can be used in duophonic mode, or with the two analogue oscillators stacked into one monster monophonic sound.

Other tricks up its sleeve include the ability to delay one voice before it triggers, and an inline effect in and out on the rear for each voice that allows you to add things like a delay or phaser and really add another dimension to an already powerful instrument.

These are wonderful instruments. The demo below scratches the surface of what they can do, but if you know and love the 700S then you have an idea of the basic sound.

Good with signs of use. There is wear on the face, mostly near a few sliders. Some slider tops are replacements. The end cheeks have some damage around the edges and corners, the left cheek is missing some of the veneer along the back side.
