The M3 is a music workstation synthesizer from Korg that offers a step-up from the company's M50 model. Available in 88 and 61-key variations, this model functions as an all-in-one production/arrangement tool with a fully-functional DAW accessible via the unit's TouchView interface. Carrying over Korg's powerful EDS (Enhanced Definition Synthesis) technology from the company's celebrated OAYSYS workstation, the M3 is pre-loaded with nearly 700 megabytes of PCM data for a wide range of sound variation possibilities. A 256-megabyte internal ROM drive has also been provided to store user-customized presets and sound banks, enabling sufficient storage of numerous song arrangements. Among the M3's stock sample sets are a number of electric pianos (reed and tine), a full stereo acoustic piano with damper and resonance layers, a multiple-velocity Clavinet, a number of tape-driven string and woodwind sets and a zero-cancellation mono piano. In addition to the "Xpanded" technology used to engineer the M3, the unit runs version 2.2 of Korg's "KARMA" digital effects processing software for seamless quantization and module synchronization. Generated effects can be hot-swapped in and out in real-time during in live and studio applications, with 700 presets available as well as a wide variety of fully customizable drum grooves.
