Reverse Keys KORG Poly 800 Synthesizer w/ Mods

via this auction

"This Poly 800 has the reversed keys, plus the following modifications:

Potentiometer for filter cutoff frequency
Potentiometer for filter resonance amount
Filter slope switch (12 or 24 dB / octave)
Switch to toggle FM on/off
Potentiometer for FM amount

These additions extend the synth's range to far beyond a normal Poly 800 (although it can be used without the mods by turning cutoff to max, resonance to min, selecting 24 dB / octave and switching 'FM' to off). The FM can add harmonic overtones, or extreme distortion at higher amounts. Care should be taken with the resonance amount as, after about 75%, 'feedback' can occur quite suddenly (and loudly). Therefore, running the instrument through a compressor is recommended."
