I just found a Korg Poly-800 synthesizer and boy are they going for real cheap nowadays. Perhaps there is a reason for that, but regardless I found it be a cool little retro synth from the 80’s. I actually think it sounds pretty good if you are into synthpop as pretty much anything goes in that synth genre. I haven’t had much time to work with it and currently I’m cleaning it up a bit, but so far everything works great. I also picked up the Korg Poly-800 patches online from AnalogAudio which really brings out the sound character of the synth. These analog synths are a bargain and I find them to be very fun to get creative with. If you see one, I highly recommend not passing it up for the prices they are going for.
