Manufacturer's Description
FEATURES
The KORG i3 is a full-featured Workstation featuring 61 full-size, velocity-sensing keys. The keyboard response is adjustable using the three touch-curves; a fourth setting provides a fixed output level. Transpose buttons shift the pitch of the keyboard up or down by two octaves. The professional joystick allows real-time articulation of pitch bend, vibrato, and brilliance during performance. All front panel buttons and controls are conveniently grouped together by function, and the custom backlit LCD delivers valuable visual feedback. A rotary data-wheel can quickly edit the value of the onscreen parameters. The rubberized touch surface, and perforated end panels reflect the distinctive upscale contemporary design.
It all Starts with the Sound
The i3 is endowed with decades of KORG sound design expertise. Inside you'll find nearly 800 instrument sounds created with critical precision by master programmers and musicians. Add 59 custom Drum Kits, and you're talking some serious sound. Calling up one of the 200 Sound Performance Sets from memory can place up to four sounds on the keyboard at once; three layered across the upper keys, and one split to the lower keys. Reset the split point instantly with the touch of a button and the press of a key. The high-fidelity PCM sound engine provides a generous 64 voices of polyphony. Two stereo effect processors - each with 173 variations - add motion, depth, and expression to each of these real-time sounds. Press the convenient Grand Piano button to instantly recall the prime piano sound of thei3 in any mode, at any time.
Start Creating
The KORG i3 is the Workstation that can help you create performances from your ideas. By selecting a Style Performance Set, the i3 can enhance any performance by adding in the missing parts - a drum beat, a bass line, some percussion hits, and any other backing parts you may wish to add, from a tight funk brass section to some serious guitar strumming, from a string quartet to a grinding old blues organ. You can actually have up to eight parts making up your backing track. Each of the 270 Styles contains four related Performance Set options; each one recalls a different set of backing sounds, just as each Sound Set offers four related options for the real-time keyboard parts you play yourself. Active backing parts will follow your chord changes and voice leading to create a personalized track to match your performance. If you need just a little more spark for your creative fire, the eight Chord Buttons can suggest and provide ready-made chords to keep your momentum moving forward. Each Style is a complete song-creation environment, with ready-to-play sounds, parts, and chords - if needed. Just as with the real-time Sound Set parts, the Style Performance Set parts also can also access two independent stereo effect processors - each with 173 variations - to add motion, depth, and expression.

Compose it. Play it. Record it, Share it
Style Performance Set settings, Sound Set settings, Tempo, Effect settings, etc. can be saved into a single Set List location for instant recall. The i3 sequencer has a track-by-track linear 16-track recorder which can be edited. Once recorded, your finished project can be exported as a MIDI data file. What really makes the i3 unique is the Performance Recording mode, where an entire performance generated and played on the i3 can be captured and recorded as audio data and exported as an audio .WAV (44.1 kHz) file.
At Home, On Stage, In the Studio
The KORG i3 Music Workstation features plenty of connections and performance options on the rear panel. When not running on battery power, the i3 has an AC power included.
