  OM300

OM300_handAs the Twentieth Century drew to a close, Suzuki placed everything into their latest instrument. If we are to believe the brochures, a far higher being than mere alien beings had blessed this project! A Divine hand extends from Omnichord Heaven down to the holy Strumplate, bestowing upon it truly angelic new sounds. The hand, of course is part of Michelangelo's painting on the Sistine Chapel.

The new OM300 is finished in a virtuous shade of Ivory, fit for even the most pious of Saintly Omnichordists. It included all of the OM250M features but with revised sound pallet using the latest samples (Omnichord, Guitar, Harp, Banjo, Strings, Piano, Organ, Celesta, Marimba and Steel Drums) along with updated styles (Rock I, II, II, March, Jazz, Country, Bluegrass, Bossnova, Samba & Waltz). A Fill-In feature is also included which can also be used as an Intro.

The chord button layout is now very familiar and includes 84 playable chords across three rows of 12 buttons. (Major, Minor, Major 7th, Minor 7th, Augmented and Diminished). The subtle dual tone chord buttons are retained for melody keyboard (with dedicated sound library) and an overlay is included for ease of use. The top two rows of buttons are also used to control the chord computer (which is the same as the OM250M and can store up to 120 events). The buttons that are coloured are of softer shades than previous models and the strumplate is colour coded to the Omnichord body.
