Packed with incredible sounds, features, and value

The i3 is a full-featured music workstation with 61 full-sized, velocity-sensitive keys. You can tailor the keyboard response to your playing style via three touch curves. You’ve got transpose buttons and an intuitive joystick for real-time pitch bend, vibrato, and brilliance. There’s also a 2-band EQ for that final professional polish on your overall tone. All front panel buttons and controls are intuitively grouped together by function, and the custom backlit LCD delivers visual feedback that’s easy to see in dim studio lighting. Onscreen parameter values can be tweaked easily with the rotary encoder data wheel. Korg gave the i3 a wicked black-out finish, a nubby rubberized touch surface, and perforated end panels that will look great onstage. Korg packed tons of incredible sounds and features into the i2 — and for such an affordable price!

It’s all about the Sound

The i3 is fortified with decades of Korg sound-design know-how, with nearly 800 instrument sounds created with critical precision by master engineers, musicians, and programmers. This includes a complete GM2 sound set, providing flawless General MIDI compatibility. Add to that another 59 custom Drum Kits, and you’ve got a massive sound arsenal at your fingertips. It’s all here: a high-fidelity PCM sound engine with 64 voices of polyphony, instant splits and layers, and two studio-grade stereo effect processors to add motion, depth, and expression to your patches in real time. Need a piano, stat? Press the convenient Grand Piano button at any time to instantly load the main piano sound of the i3.

Capture your ideas and transform them into finished productions

The Korg i3 Music Workstation offers numerous ways to capture your creativity so it can be saved, edited, or shared. All of the settings used to create a song or performance can be saved into a single Set List location for instant recall. The i3’s sequencer is a linear16-track recorder in the Normal mode. In Backing Sequencer mode, the i3 captures all Style Performance Set parts and all Sound Set parts in a single pass, placing each part on a separate track. This way, an individual track can still be edited or replaced as you would in a regular sequence. At Sweetwater, we really love this feature!

Share it with the world

You’ve got ideas. You’ve got some catchy hooks. Gobs of grooves. Even a few lyrics. The Korg i3 is the workstation that can help you pull it all together. Fast. And when you're happy with your creation, you can share it with the world, your collaborators, or your friends. Once finished, your project can be exported as a MIDI data file. A feature that really makes the i3 unique is its Performance Recording mode, where an entire performance can be captured and recorded as audio data, and exported as an audio WAV (44.1kHz) file. The onboard sequencer can even play audio files saved in the .WAV (44.1 kHz) or MP3 format.

At home, onstage, in the studio

In addition to its innovative performance features, the Korg i3 offers generous rear-panel connectivity to handle any situation. When not running on battery power, the i3 can be connected to an AC power source using the included adapter. There are two 1/4" outputs (Left/Mono and Right) for audio monitoring, in addition to a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack. A 3.5mm audio input jack is also provided. A 1/4" foot controller jack is provided, with the function of the footswitch or expression pedal definable in settings. A MIDI output jack sends note and timing data from the i3 to your other MIDI-equipped hardware. Two USB ports are provided: Use the TO HOST USB port to connect the i3 to your Mac or PC; the TO DEVICE USB for saving and loading data and songs to and from a USB flash drive.
