Hmmmm... do I know
you? Would you be Roland JX8P's sister? He-he.
The K3 not only looks like the Roland, it also sounds like a crossbred
of a JX8p and a DW-8000. But a crossbred with some deficiency in its genes.
Even though the K3 is a nice, clean digital / VCF dreamy sounding synth,
it lacks the depth, edge and the vitality of the aforementioned. And
you will reach the limit of programmability very quickly.
fact that its programmable waveshapes, 7 shapes of the LFO, 7 chorus
types, velocity & aftetouch keyboard, and MIDI functions can be had
for around 150 bucks make it one of the sweetest, innocent synths in
also mention a curious conversation between me and my friend. He said
he loves the K3 sound and finds it much more organic and attarctive
than that of the Juno 106 / 60. I said it was funny because I would
use those words and describe the situation exactly the other way
wondering to which group you belong.
