Ahead of the 2020 NAMM Show, Korg has introduced the i3 Music Workstation, a full-featured workstation that can run on battery power.
The i3 features 61 full-size, velocity-sensing keys. The keyboard response is adjustable using the three touch-curves; a fourth setting provides a fixed output level.
The i3 features nearly 800 instrument sounds. 200 Sound Sets can place up to four sounds on the keyboard at once; three layered across the upper keys, and one split to the lower keys.
The PCM sound engine provides 64 voices of polyphony. Two stereo effect processors – each with 173 variations – add motion, depth, and expression to each of these real-time sounds.
The i3 sequencer can function as a track-by-track linear 16-track recorder in the Normal mode. Using the Backing Sequencer mode, the i3 can capture all Style Performance Set parts and all Sound Set parts in a single pass, placing each part on a separate track. In this way, an individual track may still be edited or replaced as you would in a normal sequence. Once recorded, your finished project can be exported as a MIDI data file.
In addition, 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. The onboard sequencer can even play audio files saved in the .WAV (44.1 kHz) or MP3 format.
