About This Listing

[English] Hello ! I sell my Korg DS-8 which is in great condition. I already have the Korg 707 (almost identical, more compact but less powerful in its features that I keep because I need space!)I remind the powerful features of the DS-8:
  • 8 polyphonic voices (4 FM-operators per voice!)
  • 2 oscillators
  • LFO: saw / triangle / square / sample & hold
  • 4 DCA (1 per operator)
  • 61-key keyboard WITH velocity & aftertouch 100 user memories and 10 multi patches and also an external slot
  • 1 integrated multi-effect: delay, chorus, flanger, double. In the same style as what can be found in the DW8000 or POLY800II
  • Multitimbral 8 partsFunction: stack 2 patches at a time (huge!
  • 1 slider even allows to dose between the 2 sounds, free keyboard split ( bass on the left, piano sound on the right for example)
If you love FM sound but hate the laborious Yamaha DX FM programming that requires clicking buttons like never before, the DS-8 is for you (it was for me!). There are 3 sliders that allow you to directly interact with the presets which is really great.

Programming has been greatly simplified and you can very quickly get an incredible variety of sounds in a short time. I know this machine by heart and I also know all its competitors (yamaha dx, korg volca, korg 707, etc) so if you have any questions, I will have the answers ^^ Possible sending well protected almost everywhere.
Bonjour !

Je revends mon Korg DS-8 qui est dans un super état. J'ai déjà le Korg 707 (quasi identique, plus compact mais moins puissant dans ses fonctionnalités que je garde car il me faut de la place !)
Je rappelle les puissantes fonctionnalités du DS-8:
  • 8 voix de polyphonie (4 FM-operators par voix !)
  • 2 oscillateurs
  • LFO: saw / triangle / square / sample & hold
  • 4 DCA (1 par operateur)
  • Clavier de 61 touches AVEC velocité & aftertouch
  • 100 mémoires utilisateurs et 10 multi patches et aussi un slot externe
  • 1 multi-effet intégré : delay, chorus, flanger, double. Dans le même style que ce qu'on peut trouver dans les DW8000 ou POLY800II
  • Multitimbral 8 parties
  • Fonction : stack 2 patches à la fois (énorme ! 1 slider permet même de doser entre les 2 sons. ), split clavier libre ( bass à gauche, son de piano à droite par ex)
Si vous aimez le son FM mais que vous détestez la programmation FM laborieuse des Yamaha DX qui requiert de cliquer des boutons comme jamais, le DS-8 est fait pour vous (il l'était pour moi !). Il y a des sliders qui permettent de directement intéragir avec les presets ce qui est vraiment top. La programmation a été largement simplifié et vous pouvez très rapidement obtenir une variété de sons incroyables en peu de temps.

Je connais par coeur cette machine et je connais aussi toutes ces concurrentes (yamaha dx, korg volca, korg 707, etc) donc si vous avez des questions, j'aurais les réponses ^^

Envoi possible & bien protégé.
