Korg 01W/FD
4 banks of 100 sounds each memory card.

UTILIZATION

Typical Korg 90s. Say no more.

SOUNDS

Beautiful tablecloths, voice and strings, some nice pads too. It almost rivals with my Virus TI 2 in terms of spacey sounds to great effect.

OVERALL OPINION

Very good sound events still very current music ambient / trance / movies. Robust and very good finishes, and yes there c'tait over 15 years ... It changes constructions made in China today! I had bought a new one leaving with regret that I sold, I just buy a new one, used biensure but in good condition, just clean the contacts of the keys and screen change (normal considering his age). I'm not ready to sell it this time!

Editing sounds and effects is it easy?
well done!

The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

Manual to the hair!

SOUNDS

The sounds they are suitable to your style of music?
the sounds are fabulous I dreamed to possess is a legend, well above the M1, M1 is a better!!
I never had a Korg forward, I fell in love, they make fabulous synth ......

Are they realistic?

It sounds great for planing, tablecloths and some progressive sounds, we feel the influence of the Wavestation, no wonder Dave Smith fell in love!!
The effects are they effective and responsive?
The expression is good? (Response to velocity, aftertouch to)?

the keyboard is excellent! is the same for all korg!
What are the sounds you prefer, you hate? ...

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?

2 months
What is so special that you like most and least?
I love everything about this keyboard, its looks, its sounds are sequencer, keyboard, its qualities are far from being outmoded, for me it is still in the game

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
How would you rate the quality / price?
With experience, you do again this choice? ...
I dreamed, I have one, I never will sell !!!!!

Korg 01W/FD
About its characteristics (prsentes on site), they are the hallmark of KORG ... ergonomics, ease of use, menus and parameters dtaills solidity ... and sober design. The feel of the keyboard and flawless in its precision vlocit are really a plus.

USE

As for presets, access is fast, simple ... easily ditables combinations.
Take a "combi" and customize it using a tool instead of another is incredibly fast ...
Despite the very large number of Parameter and effects, it is not lost in the buttons and menus.

SONORITS

Ct sonorits ??? A reference in the MATIRE (that is perhaps why it is so difficult to find used) ... for amateur New Wave and Dance of ann 90's is probably the best synthesizer. In the current era, we must of course work (notably on LFO) in order not to sound too "Vintage" ... but sonorits are all so known that it does not matter

No comparison with another synth another brand to me.

NOTICE GLOBAL

I had the good fortune to possder a 93 and I made the huge mistake of me because i was 98 in Sparer more comfortable on the guitar on a keyboard ... I know, it is criminal !!!
Today, I run to buy a buy one (computer music requires) that will come complter my Home Studio ... I tried many other synths (including Korg), but it really still my darling ... and say that it is just 10% of its original price !!!! if you get the chance, do not hesitate one second.

Jeremy R's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg 01W/FD
CHARACTERISTICS The can be found everywhere. It's a real pro synth with possibilities for Fast Fashion trs strained sound.

UTILIZATION

Note: I do not use the squenceur.

Operation is simplicity of dconcertante. The instructions are clear trs, just read it. Whether to edit the "programs", the "combis", the drumkits, the effects ... trs nothing is complicated (if you know the basics of sound synthse). The information on the screen sometimes seem arranged in bulk but it's no big deal.

SOUNDS

I love the sound of this synth should be careful because even the sound is quickly overwhelming if not properly back some of the tones are powerful trs. It is a reader samples of the beginning of the 90s, o weaknesses for reproductions of instruments. The strings do not sound trsralistes but crent a nice texture for example. So even sounds that rats appear to be used.

Here's how I use it: it is connected to MIDI squenceur my PC, which CONTRL several synths. The 01/WFD is put in "Sequencer" which allows accder directly to 16 MIDI tracks. No effect is activated it passes through the multi-purpose fitting my external mixer.

The sounds I prfre: the tubular bells, choirs, string ensembles, the positive organ, electric bass, or a marimba that I superimposed a flute sound, which gives a sound ok (near Fairlight sound used by Asia in 1982).

I do not like the electric pianos 01/WFD. The acoustic piano is used in a mix trs, but not too alone.

Brass and guitars against ... I use those sounds not a synth-l ... Well that this level is the the 01/WFD dbrouille not bad for the era.

The sounds are purely synthetic trs good overall (well, there is always a little dchet ...).

OVERALL OPINION

I've had about 2 years. If c'tait again, I Rasht one. He currently serves normment couple a Roland XP-80 full of expansion cards. It makes me 32 MIDI tracks to Get You Started is plutt lot (over the tracks on my cheeks monotimbraux synths).

Attention to the keyboard and the keys that famous "stick" (c - d dating trs slowly when they are released). A vrifier at the time of purchase, then lubricate or if you have the patience to disassemble the machine. I might be attacked me one day, although I play some trs on the keyboard (I CONTRL all over the XP-80 and Cakewalk).

Korg 01W/FD
The features are easy to find so I will not dwell on it.

1/The keyboard is still the same, it's a Yamaha, that of SY77. It is excellent, robust, fast etc ...
2 / The screen is not backlit. I have not seen a single 01W on which the screen was still backlit. It is a well known disease and does not interfere with the operation of the synth.
3/Il is its weight.
4/Un big screen is nice.

UTILIZATION

It is quite easy to use, combined, of prog, a sequencer, a floppy drive etc ... everything is easy to understand.

SOUNDS

We are entering the most interesting part of this machine sounds. To cut over right away, the sounds are much better than the M1 and T series

Remember that the 01W was the best of Korg around 1992, so it's not a toy.

1/The layers are huge, I think ultimately they are perhaps even better than on my trinity. Ca plane high in the 01 series. It's bewitching good! simply.
2/The bass and sax are good, they were good before (M1, T), they are still here, but I prefer the trinity.
3/Les strings are really good.
4/THE orchestral sounds are average.
5/Les synthesized sounds are not terrible, but there is no resonant filter either.

The effect is interesting part of this machine and we do not have a lot of things. The disk part is convenient to recharge the conf notemment home when you can not stop Triffouille 01.

OVERALL OPINION

It's still a nice machine. It can be found at good prices, even cheaper than T3, it is much better off. I just sold mine for a pittance, 250 euros. Yet he can still make big services, we must not close our eyes, this is a real synth. If we do not find her happiness above, there are plenty of sounds on the internet, just search a bit. It is a true workstation with sequencer, sounds etc ... batteire

Korg 01W/FD
No speeches, everyone knows

UTILIZATION

Yes it is relatively simple for someone who knows the KORG products, further recourse to the manual required.

SOUNDS

So here I am involved dire.j have had a Korg M1, the FD has nothing to 01w voir.je find the sounds of piano, sax, etc. much more advanced, it's still in the 90s. and what about the ground absolutely magnifiques.des thousands of sounds available on the net via sysex.j 've saved the original sounds on disk and presto, I do what I want with my synth!! and say that the FD 01W sells cheaper than the M1, I think so!! frankly no photo, if you want a Korg that time so that you faut.mais 01W legend has a name: M1

OVERALL OPINION

I love my 01W, I have a Novation Supernova, Roland JD800 one and I had plenty of time. If I had one that would keep him. Korgmant you.

Korg 01W/FD
Kind of super M1

synthbr keyboard />
The piano sound is playable but Exceeds quickly.

for sounds and effects I know, but there is always more .... compared to that of bx today it is lagging behind, but not out of sight!
This is a good worstation trs.

In stand alone, the screen is big enough for comfortable use.
goodbye to me while drle!

UTILIZATION

It korg! you're in your house quickly.

I never pushed the edition too, but it is not a careful synht

Manual provides much!

SOUNDS

All dpend what you want to do with, is rput Korg sounds for its synthesis (beaches)
Good gnraliste ts raliste for acoustic top is not.
VLOC after touch Ok, highlight the same era in the combis that use of 8 stamps I think of memory!

I loved the beautiful vangelis the powerful combi ...

OVERALL OPINION

I had a few years ago. (Now Triton Studio 88 Korg ... always!)

I go back in time, I buy it without hsitations.

In stand alone, the screen is big enough for comfortable use.

Denilune's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg 01W/FD
- Korg great hit even then for a 61 notes ...
- 200 Programs, 200 combis (2X better than M1)
- 32 voice polyphony (2X better than a T3)
- High-performance effects
- Editing sounds easy and very effective (I have made hundreds ...)
- 16 sequence tracks (2X better than a T3)

UTILIZATION

- Easy to use ... nothing wrong

SOUNDS

Korg is recognizable color is on ...
This synth was used in the production amount of 90 years ...
The sounds sound better than they actually are realistic ... acoustic sounds such are not very real, but the heart of a mix on stage and they are proving very effective ...

OVERALL OPINION

12 years old soon in this machine!

At the time this machine is best seller:
- For sound, the characteristics overwhelming, the intelligence usage, the look and the brand!

One of the best business opportunity ...
