“This was working well until recently when it wouldn’t turn on anymore. I’m not sure what the issue is but it could be an easy fix. Comes with the rack ears (which are often difficult to find). Also missing one of the plastic feet from the bottom (these are easily replaced).” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Desktop version of Korg’s famous Poly 800.

Fully working and can be tested on collection however due to vintage sold strictly “as-is” if it is to be shipped. The reason is that no shipping company will insure a 30 year old piece of electronic equipment. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This has been languishing unused for too long amidst my tracking studio kit currently in storage. However I have tested it out and it’s in perfect working order. These are current photos. I added my own aluminium rack ears years ago but the extra midi ports were not my doing!

If you’re after a classic 80s analogue synth this is one of them! Great for soft/lush pads and squelchy, bubbling analogue textures alike. For all you synth plugin merchants out there (I use some VA plugins too professionally) you can get similar sound frequency wise from many different VAs but like all digital simulation you will never achieve the thick true presence of this or any other analogue synth- that’s something that only happens uniquely as the sound passes out of the jacks from any analogue hardware! Just saying!”

“Due to having no knowledge of how to use this im selling it for spares or repair.
I have powered it up and Button No2 does not seem to work, however all other numbers show up on relevent display, also “Value” display does not seem to work. I have taken the top off and everything inside looks in excellent condition. If you know what you are doing this could be a piece of cake to fix up . On the outside it has obviously been well used as can be seen in the picture and it has some small scratches and a bit of motteling around the edges here and there.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“For parts or Repair 1984 Korg Ex 800, the desktop version of the Korg Poly 800. This synth is being sold as is, the unit turns on but only produces fuzzy tones and behaves strangely. Possible battery replacement issue, not sure it is almost 35 years old.

Issues: certain buttons do not respond normally to regular pressure and one button is missing.

Voices sound distorted and not as intended.

Body has wear and some dings in it.

Comes with the original adapter, patch sheet, and original backup cassette tape.”

EX 800, Korg @ 30 September 2017, Comments Off on Korg EX-800 with Hawk 800 Uprgrade

“The Korg EX-800 is an 8 voice polyphonic synth and this one is in really good shape (which I paid £300 for). This synth has been modified and includes additional knobs for – Filter cutoff, Resonance, pseudo FM amount , Noise + a switch to choose a 12dB or 24 dB filter. The desktop version is very hard-wearing with its metal case, also giving it a good weight.

I have also modified it further by installing the HAWK-800 upgrade (the kit costs about £100 to buy + my time to install) which adds an unbelievable amount of features to the original synth. If you go to https://www.hawk800.com/ this explains in detail all the extras you get from it.

I have included a picture of some software Joe Mattiello developed to control this synth using Abelton/MaxForLive which shows quite how many features are now available. You can also set up a midi controller to change parameters as well. It allows you hook it up to your computer and change the parameters from there instead of having to use the buttons on the front. Abelton seems to be the favourite but other DAWs can send midi to it as well.

I have plenty of experience with soldering and fixing up synths having built most of my modular synth. The Hawk-800 has worked without a any problems for 8 months now so I am confident about the robustness of what was a pretty advanced installation. I will also be including the AtomaHawk upgrade that I have not installed (see bag of components in image). This allows you to control the filter and resonance knobs on the front via the computer (using LFOs as well).”

” I bought this module back in the late 80’s and stopped using it shortly after college. It’s been sitting underneath a sheet at my parent’s house for the past 25 years – they’re cleaning house so it’s time to get rid of my old gear…

The EX-800 is essentially a Korg Poly-800 without the keyboard. It’s a great little MIDI module that’s capable of some punchy analog sounds. This unit is in very good condition and everything works as it should.

I replaced the internal patch battery just a couple of weeks ago and restored the factory patches though the tape interface with a WAV that I found online. A PDF of the owner’s manual is also easy to find online. Rack ears and 9v power supply is included.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Korg EX-800 (1984) – Poly800 Analog expander module + 8 voices DCO oscillators with lowpass analogue paraphonic filter and internal sequencer with clock sync.

This Korg EX-800 is rare and in excellent condition for its age, comes with power supply and everything works . No noise, crackles or hum anywhere.

The synth has recently had a circuitbenders Polybeast mod which seriously brings it to life and truly can sound like a beast and battery change.

I got Paul at Circuitbenders to mod it slightly different as to not spoil the original and gorgeous KORG EX-800 logo graphics.
https://www.circuitbenders.co.uk/synthmod/POLYEX.html

This synth is Widely considered to be Korg’s answer to Roland’s affordable Juno series. Sounds are beautifully warm and typical of polyphonic analogs of the era. It does great sweeps and has the capacity to sound really pure and emotional.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

korgex800 “Selling my EX800, which is the desktop version of the Poly 800, a pretty famous Korg keyboard. You will obviously need to feed midi into this thing to play it, but this way you don’t have to clutter your studio with loads of keyboards to get the sounds on them. Pretty snazzy.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

EX 800, Korg @ 07 January 2017, Comments Off on Korg EX-800 with Mods

ex800 “I’m selling my Korg EX-800 analog synth module. It has been modified to allow realtime control of the filter cutoff and resonance. The knobs for the cutoff and resonance mods match the existing knobs (polysix/monopoly style)

The synth is fully functional and sounds great. The buttons, knobs and sequencer all work as they should. The outputs are clear.

The filter mod (also referred to as the “moog slayer” mod) allows for smooth filter sweeps throughout the value range. Set the filter range for cutoff and resonance as you normally would with the up/down arrows. The newly added cutoff and resonance knobs will adjust the amount within this range. It’s a good idea not to set the resonance higher than 13 because you can reach ear splitting levels at a setting above that if you then turn the resonance knob all the way clockwise.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ex800 “Korg EX-800 vintage 80s synthesizer with analog filters.

The following modifications have been done to improve this synthesizer:

1. The patch memory was upgraded to nonvolatile FRAM memory (does not require a memory backup battery).
2. The chorus effect has an analog sweep rate knob added.
3. The chorus section has an external audio input added with switch to enable running external audio through the analog chorus section.
4. The chorus section features adjustable dry and wet audio level knobs for both left and right channels allowing you to create custom stereo images.
5. The analog low pass filter has added a switch to select from 12db or 24 db filter settings.
6. The analog low pass filter hass added analog cutoff and resonance adjustment, these work in tandem with the internal patch filter CV levels.
7. Added an analog high pass filter section selectable 6db or 12db HPF, the high pass filter has a switch to bypass / engage the effect.
8. The analog high pass filter can track the internal filter LFO, and has a switch to engage LFO tracking or bypass the internal CV tracking.
9. The analog high pass filter has its own dedicated cutoff knob.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

korg ex800 “This has been safely racked up in my studio for the last 5 years but it’s ~30 years old and the cosmetic condition reflects this.

Good points:
Rack ears included, these seem to be quite rare.
Memory battery replaced – if it dies in 30 years time you won’t have to do any soldering, just snap another battery into the holder!
Moog Slayer filter mod – real time hands-on control of the filter cutoff.
FM-800 filter mod – when turned up gets some FM-like sounds and makes the whole synth a lot dirtier and more exciting.

Bad points:
One button missing (doesn’t affect operation).
‘Resonance’ control of Moog Slayer mod doesn’t appear to do anything (middle extra pot).” Click here to visit listing on eBay
