The Poly-800 is an analog synthesizer in a small all-plastic case with mini-keys and no velocity sensitivity. It was released in module form as the Korg EX-800. A Mark II version was also made.

It could be powered with batteries and had guitar strap pegs so that it could be worn like a guitar and played live.

The Poly-800 included a 256-step sequencer. It had basic MIDI support, but patches could not be backed up MIDI and it still used a cassette interface for backing up patches.
