korg t3 (1990)

i think the timeline is as follows:
korg M1 (88) > Korg T1/T2/T3 (90) > Korg 01/W(91) > Korg X3  (93)korg X5 (95) > Korg Prophecy (95) > trinity

The Korg T-series is often called "the M1 on steroids" and it's quite true.  The T3 features double the amount of ROM waveforms than the M1 has - 8MB as opposed to 4MB in the good old M1.

The T3 can also load M1 presets, and has the same 8-track sequencer - expanded and aided by a useful disk drive.  The famous M1 high-quality effects are also present.

The presets have been reworked, to take advantage from the augmented wave ROM, and it shows - in all, even if this synth came out only a brief time after the M-series, it notably improves its sound and the performance capabilities.

Oddly, Korg never produced a T-series rack format, but the M1REX can be considered that  - this rack contains the whole 8MB of memory that the T3 has ,and is a cross between M1 and T3, capable of morphing in any of these two fine instruments.

one of these sat in the pawn shop near my house for like 2 years.. and then when i finally decided i was interested i went down to see it and it was gone!

great keyboard
does anyone know if the sounds are different ? or is there alot of overlap between the m1 + the 01/w + the T3, X3 Etc?
