Very good physical condition. Turns on but the sounds don’t work. I’m pretty sure the sounds just need to be reloaded via the tape in jack. Should be a great deal from someone who can easily fix this.

Sold as-is.” Link

p8000ii “A VINTAGE Korg Poly800 MKII in good working order. Originally released in 1985, this is the follow up to the original version that added effects and a larger sequencer. The original factory sounds are loaded and the unit includes the power adapter and a sound resource CD along with the factory sound cassette tape. An owners manual AND service manual are included. The unit works just fine but has minor cosmetic issues expected of a 32 year old instrument. The unit has lived in a NON SMOKING environment. The unit is packaged up nicely and ready to ship from the Dallas area in Texas, USA.” Link

800mods “I have a Korg Poly 800 factory restored and refurbished (by Chris at thisoldsynth.com) with a new internal battery and two mods added. Description of mods from Wikipedia:

There is a modification that adds two knobs to the VCF, increasing the filter’s range and expressiveness, known as the Moog-Slayer filter modification; the FM-800 filter modification which adds a pseudo FM control to the filter; a modification for external audio input; and some users have added a switch to control the filter slope, adjusting it from a 4 pole (24db/oct) to a 2 pole (12db/oct).

As you may have already read, the Poly 800 is a paraphonic analogue synth (all but the DCO’s, which, if anything, ensure that the oscillators stay stable).
Without the mods the keyboard is fine, but with these additions, the instrument can attain a decent range of expression.
A great synth, with multiple applications, the Poly 800 is one of the cheaper ways to get your hands on that analogue sound. ” Link

Synthesizer looks good overall but does show cosmetic wear from prior use. Original AC power adapter is not included but a non-OEM adapter will be included. This adapter is a little under powered (lower amperage than original) but works okay. I will also include 6 new C batteries, which you may use as an alternate power source.” Link

Habe den Synth nie so richtig verstanden und unter Kontrolle bekommen.
Er hat manchmal einen seltsamen Aftertouch auf den Tasten, wie eine Art Modulationseffekt (Habe nie gefunden, was das sein könnte), deswegen habe ich ihn bisher für fette Flächen und warme Bässe einfach per Midi angesteuert.

usedp800 “Here’s a KORG POLY-800. This is a true Classic Vintage Polyphonic Analogue Synthesizer straight out of the 1980′s in GOOD cosmetic condition, and perfect working condition. Display is bright, and crisp. Always used and stored in a smoke-free studio environment. My father is the original owner of this synth. He’s an accomplished, successful Motown/Soul/R&B artist, and a complete gear-head. His studio is too cluttered with too much vintage gear that he’s collected throughout his 30+ years in the music business, so I finally convinced him to let some of it go. This synth is getting some much deserved attention recently after being used in the productions of Synthwave and Vaporwave artists. His loss is your gain! ” Link

p800 “Up for auction is my trusty vintage Korg Poly-800 Synth – in great working order.

The unit has its share of scratches and scuffs from wear and tear, but fully operational. Missing parts are just the little knob that sits on top of the pitch bend stick and battery compartment cover on the back (see pics).

This is an unmodded version without the DC 9-volt power supply, but I will include a fresh set of C Batteries with the shipment. It also has the factory preset patches loaded. (from what I recall, if you remove the batteries without a psu plugged in, you’ll lose the patches and will have to load the patches again – sorry I do not have a wav file for this, but there are plenty online if you search)…

That being said, I’ll leave my current set of batteries in.” Link

korg-poly800 ” Up for sale is a Korg Poly 800 that is not working properly. It may be miles ahead of the numerous ones I see on eBay that don’t power up at all. This one powers up, but the sounds seem messed up. There’s some random white noise on random keys and the sound seems weird. It may be in need of a internal battery for the presets. I tried unsuccessfully to load the factory presets via the tape in jack, but it didn’t take, even though the synth went the the motions of loading. (maybe my signal was too low or my mini jack adapters were not sending in the signal)

All the keys play. The tape load and save function buttons work. I went and edited various parameters like the “footage” of the oscillators and turning off and on the chorus and that worked. But still the overall sounds were messed up with the noise mixed in with most any tones I’d hear. The problem could be major or minor to fix.

It’s working partially but not properly so it is being sold “AS IS” with “NO RETURNS”. If not repairable, this could be a nice source of keys, case, buttons or other hard to find parts for a 30 year old synth.

Included is the Poly 800, non-original power supply, original owners manual and parameter sheets for the original presets.” Link
