From May 1 through August 31, 2009 (or while supplies last), customers who purchase a new M3 Music Workstation (M3-61, M3-73, M3-88 or M3-M) from an authorized Korg USA dealer can receive an MR-1 (pictured) mobile DSD recorder (an $899 value) for free.
Korg''s current iteration of the M3 line, the M3 XPanded Workstation, provides a color TouchView display, EDS synthesis, chord triggers, drum tracks, KARMA interactive phrase technology and an assignable control surface. For the modern studio, the M3 XPanded includes free plug-in editing software, plus Firewire, analog modeling (via RADIAS technology) and memory expansion options.
The MR-1 handheld DSD recorder includes a stereo microphone and protective sleeve, and it uses a rechargeable internal battery. The DSD recording format provides detailed audio imaging throughout the dynamic range. AudioGate software (included) allows DSD recordings to be converted to other file formats.
