KORG EX-800

"The EX-800 is a programmable synth-module that works as a sound source for any MIDI keyboard (DW8000, Poly-80011, RK100, etc.)
or other MIDI control device such as computer or synthesizer. For real versatility, it responds to eight kinds of MIDI data:
# key data
# pitch bends
# modulation
# sequencer clock
# program change
# volume
# computer dump
# active sensing

The MIDI THRU jack allows series connection with additional EX-800s or other MIDI units. This is an easy way to add extra musical power to your system with but a small investment. The EX-800 has eight voices, 64-program memory, and a built-in 256-step polyphonic sequencer. Dual DCOs and triple ADBSSR DEGs permit rich tonal variation and flexible envelope shaping. There's even a tape interface."

  1. Can the input/outputs be moved to the bottom of the unit?

  2. The jacks are PC board mounted, but I suppose you could solder leads to panel mounted jacks.
    The best thing about the EX- or Poly-800's is that you can do a really easy mod to add freq cutoff and resonance knobs, which makes it about 100 times more versatile.
