The Korg Poly800 is my fave synth ever and here's why. Its not the best sounding synth ever we all know that. But what this synth has that alot of other don't is CHARACTOR. It does some sounds really well like synth pop style basses (human league, depeche Mode) Crystal like bells, smooth organ type sounds & warm analogue style strings that sit beautifully in the mix. I don't like big synths either. The Korg Poly800 has 49 keys which is perfect for what I do. I give this very underrated gem 5 out of 5.

The Poly 800 was my first synthesizer bought late 80s. It's not a bad synth and not a very good synth either. The sustain cuts the sound at the end which is a bit annoying. It can produce some nice sounds, especially strings. A reasonable price for a used Poly 800 shouldn't exceed 100 $ in my opinion.

GREAT for percussive and flute sounds. Excellent for Manheim Steam Roller style synth brass. Filter mod does very little, not exactly special filter-wise. Harmonics make for incredible square wave alterations.

Sequencer can be used as a intricate arpeggiator.


BTW don't buy that $200 Poly800. It's a cry for help. $150 MAX for one AFTER shipping. At that price you could get an Alpha Juno-1.

If you were to take all of these synths Poly-800, EX-800, DW-8000 and put them together you would get 2 very diffrent things. The first one would be a time machine that would transport you to the 1980's (nothing wrong with that in my book) and the other will be some damn sexy music. I am in love with the whole line of these synths. The 3 mentioned are the ones that either I currently have or have had in the past.
