The DW-8000 is a digitally controlled analog synth launched by Korg in the 1985. Its sound comes from 2 DWGS (Digital Waveform Generator System) implementing 16 sampled waveforms stored in four 256Kbit ROM chips: each octave uses its own sample and the remaining notes are recreated by additive harmonic synthesis.
The DW-8000 sounds very solid and fat, especially on low-pitched notes. Thanks to the VCA and the full resonant analog filter, this '80s tank can generate punchy basses, aggressive leads and acid organ sounds.
