RE: MEMORY PROBLEMS Keep wiping the memory??? Easy fix, turn the patch write protect switch on, so u can't write a prog! I had the same problem of losing everything in memory when switching on external sequencer, but no more!

Aside from the fact that mine had drifted so far out of tune when I got it that I had to so some light solder work to get it tuned, I love this thing. You can do some amazing things with the filter triggering... continuing a long filter sweep while changing the tones. Nice touch. Haven't had any problems with the midi on mine, it'll recieve on all/1-16. I remember reading that the chord mode doesn't work over midi, I've not tried it on an incoming midi stream, but it transmits the chords over midi... The only real complaint I have about it is the patch memory. The original poly doesn't do sysex, and the memory likes to eat itself. (and when it does, it seldom leaves anything usefull where your patches were... =( )

Yep, here I am again. Concerning the Korg Poly 800 : Umm...Pretty cool. I'm not much of a programmer but, I did order up some patches from Patchman music. Verdict: REallyy Cool... Some nice organs, basses, noises, etc...Definitely a synth worth picking up! No wonder people have been going on about this little sucker for ages..! One thing tho: The sequencer..? Forget it. Use an outboard gear like roland msq 100, etc... But other than that GET ONE! Very slick....

this synth kicks ass...it sits nicely, in my over crowded room next to hs60(juno 106), dx7, korg prophecy and others and shines still. I t has sounds that other analogues/hybrids cant make and it can even do a mean rhodes imitation if u fiddle enough...this thing rocks, i would pay for another one if something should happen to this

Ok its not that flashiest synth, it has memory problems, but!!! It sounds gorgeous in the one finger chord mode! The single filter for all the notes effect, is like an external filter input on a analog synth. And if you tweak the filter while you one-finger-chord-play , its one version of analog heaven, with that rounded Korg analog synth sound!
