A spectacular unknown jewel : KORG DL8000R

Early '90s 18bit/48KHz unknown MULTITAP delay.


This thing is so cool! One algorithm with tons of tweaking possibilities.
Some Eventide like plex verbs, diffused Lexicon delays, TC2290 dynamic panning modulated delays, tremmed and detuned spaces, tap tempo multitap rhythms, multivoice chorus or flanger, Lexi Echorus...
So cool and great sounding filters!
Writing a library for it...

Some audio clips for the listening pleasures:

ENO HALL
Dense Eventide style clusterdlys plex reverb with frequencies content changing in time (filters in the feedback loops) and modulation. Very ambient and never "in the way"!

https://soundcloud.com/italoop/korg-dl8000r-eno-hall

FOREVERVERB
More Eventide style ambient reverb from the multitaps filtered depths of the mighty Korg. Modulation moves! Space is wide...above your head. Phases trick the ears...

https://soundcloud.com/italoop/korg-dl8000r-foreververb


TC2290
It DUCKS - it PANS - it CHORUSES !
Nice and mellow sounding TC2290 replica from the mighty Korg.
Surprising, uh?

https://soundcloud.com/italoop/korg-dl8000r-tc2290



TREMSPACE
Modulated delays are tremmed and panned, just like a rack of 8 2290s!
Space around your playing floats. The mighty!

https://soundcloud.com/italoop/korg-dl8000r-tremspace


DETUNEDSPACE
Modulated reverb! The surviving aura is highly bandpassed and never conflicting with what and how YOU play. A frequency/pitch/ambience smart reverb of very rare quality.
Again...from the mighty Korg...

Quick recording (24/96) of Korg DL8000R doin' a nice replica of the Dyno My Piano TriStereoChorus.
D.I. Tech21 PSA-1 preset #0
Eq and compression = H8000
Detune/delays/reverb = PCM80 in parallel

I have a Korg DL8000R in one of my racks. It sits along side my Yamaha E1010 and Roland SDE2500.

I have had it for 2 years now and yes it's a great stereo delay/chorus/effects unit.

Little known now but still much better than nearly all plugins. The effects you can get out of it can be truely amazing.

way cool

I bought one of these new back in the mid-late 90's and i loved it!! With the warp knob on the first or second preset if you gradually lowered the rate to the all the way down speed, let it operate there for a bit then crank it up some, then slowly reduce the rate again you could obtain an even slower rate of "rotation" So do this repeatedly for 20-30 minutes and you get this awesome effect that can be added to, groomed for specific frequencies(via aux sends and return channel strips with parametric eq) and routed into other dsp systems resulting in what i used to call "echo-spheres"
The unit is worth the price for that alone! A wicked cool little piece of rackness to be sure!

Italo - those are some amazing patches/settings for the Korg (as all of yours are).

Have you made a set of presets for the Lexicon Software Reverbs? I've been on the fence about them the PCM native software but being able buy presets from you could push me over the line...

Hi G&G

thanks!
I tried the Lexi verbs soft and didn't really click for me.
Maybe the effects.... we'll see.

cheers

Congratulations! Nice catch.

It seems a number of these units surfaced to the used market recently. Good for those getting them.

New Delay Day

I just picked one up today for my live rack.

I play mainly acoustic guitars live and for my 12 String especially I found that the best sounds I could achieve for my needs came from my Korg A1 which is way too heavy for my live rack.

The Korg A3s that I have seen around are pretty much worn out so this seemed like the only best option for what I need: EQ > Delay > MTap Delay > MTap Chorus.

I'll pick the unit up this week and have a twiddle, so I wonder if there are any other users out there who might like to share knowledge.
