Pre-owned Korg M3-M.  Has light scratches from normal use and mounting.  Included power cable.  New screen was recently installed as well.

is an advanced music workstation and sampler designed for professional applications. The outstanding sound quality, intuitive control interface, DAW integration ability, and a plethora of other features make this Korg M3-M unit a pro musician's dream.

Korg's experience of producing music workstation began with the ubiquitous M1, and Korg M3-M is a logical outcome of twenty years of research and development. Korg M3-M draws on several high-end technologies, namely the KARMA and OASYS systems, and Korg M3-M includes comprehensive control, luscious sounds, a full featured sampler and touch screen technology.

Many musicians have too many keyboards already, or want to use a favorite controller, but still want access to the sounds and functionality of the M3 keyboards. Understanding this, Korg provides all of the functionality of the keyboard workstations, minus the keys, modulation wheel and ribbon controller, in module form.


The Korg M3 has been "Internally Xpanded". New sounds include electric pianos and classic keyboards, tape-emulating flutes and strings, and Brass & Woodwinds and Concert Grand expansion cards. DAW-style sequencing features include piano roll editing and a track view screen. KARMA v 2.2 M3 XPanded also adds an additional 149 new and realistic drum grooves. Throw in 700 effects presets and enhanced TouchView screen capabilities and the M3 Xpanded is a monster workstation!
