    The 800dv is essentially 2 Korg 700s synths stacked on 1 keyboard. The 800dv came out in '74 so theres no midi or any sort or external control for that matter, but this baby can produce some SCREAMING basslines! Great for dnb... check out the link for more info on all the Minikorgs.

    The Korg 800DV or Multivox K3 is imo one of the best mono synths ever made. Up there with the very best of the best.
    No matter how you turn the knobs or set the sliders, it alway's sounds exceptional good. It has an unusual layout and some strange functions. But once you know how it works, you can go from a lovely sweet tone to a brutal monster screem in a flick of a switch and a twitch of a knob.
    This goes for all the old Korg mono's, because they all sound prety much the same. The 800DV/K3 is the top of that line and has the greatest range of sounds.

    I owned two of these synths the first I bought brand new for 550.00 and it was on sale. I had the music rack, both books . the preset book had sounds like bells, strings and some horns and I believe a couple of leads. I sold my first one in 2003 or so for 1000.00 with all the accessories serial number 00234. I missed it so I found another on Ebay in 2011 for 1600.00 with cv and trigger jacks on the back the serial number on this one is 00203 so these were early ones, both of these sold under the Univox label as K-3. I've been trying to get this one to work with a Kenton box but for some reason it wont work with it, the box will drive my Yamaha cs's with no problem. Ive been hoping my old will show up on ebay someday so I try and buy it back. my first one was never gigged with stayed in the studio so it was in good shape except for the wear on the silk screening near the volume control
