Korg Lambda

“This listing is for one Korg Lambda vintage synthesizer. It is working great and other than some scratches here and there, looks good too. There are not many Lambdas out there, an unfortunate fact as they are well-equipped at performing 70s/80s polysynth sounds, Solina-like stringsynth pads and 70’s-esqe synth-clavs, pianos, etc. The sound is very similar to the PS-3100/3200/3300 range of synths. Good luck and happy bidding!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

lamba “It’s an old piece but is in good condition. There are a few cosmetic blemishes but it’s in great working condition. The Korg Lambda is a fully polyphonic 48-key preset synthesizer released in 1979. It features two types of sound – Percussive (Electric Piano, Clavi, Piano, Harmonics) and Ensemble (Brass, Organ, Choir, Strings I, Strings II). The Percussive sounds have a simple fast attack and variable decay envelope, and the Ensemble sounds have both preset and variable attack/release envelopes. Each key is articulated independently, so there is no note-stealing as experienced on synths limited to a handful of voices. The downside of this is the relative lack of programmability, but the presets sound good, particularly when layered (they are all available simultaneously).” Click here to visit listing on eBay

lambda ” The instrument is in good cosmetic condition for its age (see the photos).

The instrument works but has some issues. Here’s what I’ve noticed:

* For some voices a tone several octaves higher may be audible when playing approximately the lowest octave of the keyboard.

* The second F from the bottom of the keyboard works inconsistently.

* The highest G# on the keyboard decays abnormally slowly for some voices.

* The SUSTAIN switch and sustain pedal don’t appear to work.

* The PIANO voice sustains (in error) if it’s the only voice enabled in the PERCUSSIVE section.

* The CHORUS PHASE buttons work but sometimes require more than one press.

* ATTACK RELEASE VARIABLE always introduces some attack time, even with the ATTACK control at minimum. I don’t know whether this is normal behavior.

I’m selling the instrument as-is.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
