This Korg Poly-800 is fully functional and in great condition.  It does not include a power supply. This unit has been modified here at switched on to include knobs for VCF Cutoff, VCF Resonance, & DCO 1 to VCF FM.

The Poly-800 is inexpensive, battery powered,  portable, and has  analog features.  It has three digital 6-stage envelope generators, a noise generator, an LFO, and a chorus effect. It also sports a simple built in sequencer. It featured a 49 key, and a joystick controller, which could modulate the DCO pitch or the VCF.

The Poly-800 has MIDI IN/OUT and has cassette tape storage for backing up your patches. It has 8-voice polyphony with one DCO per voice. It can be switched into double mode which stacks two DCOs for a fuller sound, but reduces the polyphony to 4 voices. It features one analog resonant low-pass VCF with 24dB/oct which was shared for all voices. Like a monophonic synthesizer, the filter was switchable between single or multiple modes.
