Korg | i3
|At Summer NAMM 1993 Korg unveiled the i3 Interactive Music Workstation. Considered its most advanced instruments to date since it's first foray in 1985 with the SAS2-0 The 61 key i3 unit greatly improved arranging/songwriting time and workload.
The i3 makes a great compositional tool by providing onboard built in styles and patterns for creating melodies and drum sequences using Korg's AI2 synthesis found in many of their synthesizer of the early 1990's.
The unit also provided two built in sequencers. A 16 track standard MIDI sequencer with an additional 10 track sequencer called a "backing sequencer" which recorded the performance by the player and could be played back with all tweaking recorded.
The instrument provided 32 voices with all 384 programs user editable which could be saved into 64 ram patches and 2 user drum instruments. An onboard DD floppy drive provided storage
General MIDI (GM for short) was standard in most synths including the i3 and it could play back SMF files.
