I bought he X3 in 1992 (approx). This was my first digital board. I also have a Juno 60 in my collection. The sounds on the X3 are quite good. The combination mode lets you layer different sounds for plush pads etc. The only gripe here is that you are limited by the polyphony so you can't play two hand chords and get the fullnes syou expect. Of course, you know this when you buy a board with this polyphony (which was good at the time). Anyway, i love the 16 piano and the digital piano in #93. The Layer Piano is also full. It has tons of useable sounds. The highlight for me is the 16 track sequencer. It is so easy to use.I use 7 or 8 tracks to build a drum part then adjust the volumes seperately. i recommend this board as a second board to one of the new ones. I would like to add a Triton or Motif but I wouldn't get rid of the X3. If you can get one for under 500 bucks, pick it up. i play all the time and have never had a technical issue in 10 years.

Had my X3 for 10 years and even though I have upgraded I still take it on the road with me. Bought it originally for the onboard sequencer and I still use it for some computer recordings.

The Korg X3 was my first real workstation. It was very easy to use and to get around. Once you learn how to navigate through the necessary screens you can begin to use this keyboard professionally. For intro or intermediate needs this is excellent. If you want to go pro it's not bad in terms of some of the sounds that are available.

The preceeding post was an excellent example of what shouldn't be posted here (Trinity ? Well yeah OK it is a Korg...). Seems alot of people use these boards as help forums when the "Gas Station" is the appropriate place to post questions. "Gas Station" is one of the tabs at the top of this page. Try clicking on it. It does work. I had an X3 for quite a while. Bought it new. It was an easy board to use as a basic sketchpad for sequencing and creating new sounds. For it's time the piano was OK as well as most the other sounds. GM sound set also. Particularly handy was the disk drive for saving and loading data. Mixed feelings on the joystick. I rather like wheels instead, where you can apply an LFO to a sound and leave it set. Pretty fair amount of sounds available on the web as well. My son plays keyboard in a band and borrowed the X3 to try out. He loved it, so its now in his possession. I sort of replaced the X3 with a Korg 05R/W which has a similiar sound engine to the X3, but no sequencer (computer sequencing now).

I've been using the X3 for over 6 years now, and though the sounds and overall concept are obviously outdated, the instrument has proven its value time after time, year after year. Easy to use; great sounds for that time; excellent sequencer and outstanding reliability. I never even had to change the battery for the FLASH-ROM.

The Triton Studio will now take the X3's place in my set-up... but there will always be a special place in my heart for my beloved X3, no kidding! :-)
