I just bought the P3 for 35 dollars. For the price, I was expecting something old and crappy, but boy was I wrong. This thing is awesome. It only has two patches and I dont know where to get the cards, but I don't need much else. I like the lower and highest octave of patch one. It reminds me of the M1 and the wavestation. Piano two seems to be the fav. of most people, but I prefer the other patch.

I have three synths total, ensoniq sq1 and roland xp, and I compared the piano sounds to the P3. I think that the xp's pianos were good but lacked bass and sounded a bit thin and empty, compared to the pianos in the P3. The sq's pianos are good in the middle octaves, but the low octaves and high octaves suck completely, when compared to the P3. I prefer my sq for the pianos, but i'd rather use it for the strings and brass and keep the P3 as my piano and keep the xp as a synth. Overall, great for the price, you should get one if you don't have like a tiron or something.

Throw the first patch away. Terrible in the higher end. The second is very good. Great lows and convincing highs. All in all, a good buy for $50 in 2004

I bought a Korg P3 new for £75 when they came out. I don't use it much now and it's in the box with a manual and a ROM card. I'd say the piano sounds still compete with the likes of the Roland JV1010 and EMU Proteus 200 and Proteus 1 all of which I have. If I used a mother keyboard live and just wanted piano sounds I'd use the P3. I just can't justify having the space taken up with one unit that just does one job at the moment but, and I don't know how or why, it still sounds great even though it's getting on in years. I think it is derived from M1 technology and points about the ROM cards and sounds being compatible should be worth following up. Maybe I'll get around to mucking about with it some day in this respect.

I purchased the P3 in a pawn shop for 30 bucks. At the time no one (including me) knew what it was. I took it home and hooked it up. The sound is excellent. No question about it. I'm a studio musician and on playback the sound is great. Some effects i.e. bass etc are inevitable for mixdown. I would like to manual emailed to me if anyone has it in pdf or doc format. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Long live vintage gear!!! later.
