The Korg AM 8000 R is a Multi-Effects Processor with 40 Effect-Types and 128 Programs and It's fully MIDI controllable.
Careful attention has been paid to every detail of the audio circuitry in the new AM8000R Ambience Multi-Effects Processor. With high quality, sophisticated effects algorithms and parameters, this effect processor provides advanced sound processing power at an affordable price.
Intuitive two-control user interfacing allows easy access to the unitis extraordinary processing power and ultra-large high-brightness vacuum luminiscent displays allow effortless visability under any lighting condition.
Affordable Processing Power
The AM8000R is an extremely flexible true stereo multi-effects processor useful for a wide variety of applications including single instrument, studio, and live sound reinforcement. It utilizes 18 bit, 128 times oversampling analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog convertors operating at an industry standard 48KHz sampling rate. This provides a dynamic range greater than 96dB and a frequency response of 20Hz to 20KHz. The result is uncompromised processing power and audio clarity at a realistic price.
As you would expect from Korg, the AM8000R includes a full range of forty sophisticated internal effects . Choose from ambient effects such as a variety of delays and reverbs or from modulation effects including chorus, flanger or rotor simulator. Adding to the versatility are effects like a compressor, limiter, 3 band EQ and much more. Each effect maintains the highest quality and offers advanced parameters usually found in only the most expensive processing equipment.
In addition, the AM8000Ris processing architecture allows three user assignable independent effects, (plus left and right 3 band pre-EQ), to be routed and mixed internally.
Flexible real-time dynamic control
The AM8000R features simultaneous real-time control of up to eight parameters. Unlike many multi-effects processors which only offer control of a few preselected parameters, the AM8000R allows virtually any parameter of any effect to be controlled via MIDI, an expression pedal or footswitch, or the special front panel WARP! knob. Plus, the AM8000R lets you modulate Chorus/Flanger, Phaser and Filter with four types of LFO and the audio signal envelope. The results are effect parameter control as flexible as if you were actually twisting the knobs on numerous externally connected effects processorsoall at once!
