The DW8000 is a very versatile Synthesizer.The Basses kick ass,even the Leads.The Pads sound very warm,and it´s capable doing nice Organs as well.Cause of the resonating Filter iwas able to create BD´s for Tekkno Style Music. Mine is enhanced with the Musitronics Memory Update,so that now it is capable of Layers&Splits.The Memorybank now has 512Sounds. It´s still one of my 80´s Favourits!!!

The DW8000 sounds warmer than the DX7 but cannot touch the DX7 in bell like and Rhodes type sounds. That's where the DX7 outshines all the other 80's synths.

The DW8000 is known for one thing....warmth! not a good midi controller (actually horrible) but it was and will always be in a class by itself. I heard the sweetest warm and lush electric piano sounds coming from this machine! It can still be used live for amazing sounds from organs to flutes to massive analog sounds...this is a beast synthesizer and the delay effects are great! I want one again. I got the DX7IIFD which is fantastic but for an 8 note polyphony synth the DW8000 is a great performer!

Simply the best synth ever. For the price these go for now it's a joke. Infinite sound combinations. It's ridiculous. I bought 20 different kinds of vintage synths off ebay and this one blows them all away. I'm seriously thinking about getting a second one. 10 years from now working ones will be hard to come by so here's your chance -get one and see if I'm wrong. Its almost too huge in unison mode! Korg really got it right with this one. Easy to program without knobs. Spend a couple days with it and you wont have to look at the parameter matrix anymore. 31 Filter - 11 waveform - 26 noise -21 waveform 41 envelope - 51 Mod envelope etc! All of this and programmable aftertouch and delay. Forget what you think you know about synths and grab one.

I am an addict...I have several DW-8000 and EX-8000 (2 DW's+1 EX at once for a while)and like a fool, I sold them all and am trying to find another. The resonant analogue filter is the heart of this thing. For those who doubt, put a square wave on both oscilators, detune, put into unison mode, open the filter and add delay to taste...you will have a lead sound that guitar players will bitch about because it cuts through everything. Open filter with 2 saw waves and you have that great OBXa sound without the weight and tuning issues. or while you have that "Jump" patch up, put the machinein unison and use the delay to create a slow flange effect..you wil have a super slurping lead sound (think Why Can't this be Love from the 80's). Even the electric piano waves are useful for a bright 70's Rhodes kind of electric piano..not convincing but very playable. about the only part of this machine that can be confusing toa beginner is the envelopes...get a handle on them and then you can really use the filter. I used my live beside my Trinty, super JX and Yamaha EX5r in a pop rock group for years (late 90's) and it never failed. if you really want to get out there with it, pair it up with a boss SE50 or SE70 either to add more effects or to do a killer vocoder. At the end of the day,learn the envelopes, and take advantage of the extra waveforms because once you have those two parameters working for you the filter and delay will bring it to life...okay back to my lousy 106.
