On tour with Dungen Gustav Ejstes is often seen using the Korg CX-3, instead of a real Hammond organ, with numerous guitar pedals on top of it. Ejstes often alternate between the electric piano and the organ on the live sets, but as seen on this video the piano parts are here completely replaced with organ sounds instead.more
"Getting back to my live keyboard set-up, I also use an Emulator II, DX7, Jupiter 8 and a Korg CX-3. I do all my own keyboard mixing on stage and just send the PA a stereo mix of my sound because I like to keep control of what's going on. Effects-wise, I use a few digital reverbs and a couple of digital delays, that's all really. I don't use any MIDI facility on the road."more
In addition to the M50, I’ve got a couple of microKORGs [synthesizer/vocoder], a microX [TRITON-powered synthesizer], my old TR [TRITON-engine workstation] (which I use with TMV), my CX3 (which I use with TMV) and my TRITON [Workstation/Synthesizer]. I like to rotate the synths in and out over the course of the tour to keep things from getting too stale. I rely on the TR for my clav sound. -from i.korg.commore
In the 1980's, I wanted an organ that sounded like "an organ", not a cheesy replica. Synthesizers and other electronic keyboards offered organ sounds and patches, but they just didn't cut it. ...enter the Korg CX-3 and BX-3 organs, which both sound just like a real Hammond. Unfortunately, the electronic rotating speaker effect they employed internally didn't sound like a real Leslie rotating speaker, but was usable. That being said, the CX-3 when actually hooked-up to a real Leslie rotating speaker sounds indestinguishable from a Hammond, and continues to be a great organ 3 decades later, ...definitely one of Korg's enduring products.
