Korg Poly 800
This analogue synth is OK; I think it was Korg's answer to the Roland Juno's. It is a very lightweight synth and that could be said about the sounds too, but it can produce some nice pads and typical analogue synth melody/riff sounds. It has a nice chord memory feature that allows you to play chords with one finger; this is great for anyone with limited keyboard playing skills! Instant sampled chord type sounds.
Again, another mid '80's synth that's been stripped of any decent control knobs, unfortunately the MIDI implementation isn't very good either, so this one has to be programmed using its own parameter/value programming system.
