    Sensory 5 octave keyboard, a sustain pedal, all the connections required.

    UTILIZATION

    This is not easy because it is a real synth. An enthusiast will find the answers, but editing is not obvious at all for me. I do not have the manual but is found on the internet.

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are amazing! Brass are incredibly realistic as percussion instruments, marimba etc., as well as organs and electric pianos. Curiously acoustic pianos are synthetic and have no interest, I must say that I use a Yamaha P120 since then the bar is a little high.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had a couple of decades and even if I use it the less I'm still amazed every time I turn it on! I certainly used far below its potential. To make models at home or even Hammond organ on stage, it's great. There are certainly better today but is found for almost nothing then ...!

    Reliable equipment and excellent sound

    see description on the internet

    UTILIZATION

    This material at the end of year 80 is particularly suitable if you're a fan of Depeche Mode's what myself, I was looking at the time of acquisition. Beyond that, it is extremely easy to use and the touch keyboard is excellent. Finally, it may well serve as a midi keyboard.

    SOUNDS

    KORG sound!
    The original sounds for the time.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Very good material, a collector and brought all now.

    Very well known and already set.

I like to spend hours editing footage directly on the machine. Work the old what. But I totally understand that this may deter a good number of musicians.
    The manual is clear enough. The chapter sequence editing is big and boring, but no choice.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds, except the M1 piano world famous programming is very simple: starting with samples, the logical work on any synth filtered, cut with envelopes (ADBSSR), finally.
    He has a particular grain, inimitable. One likes or dislikes. on the other hand must obtain sample cards (there is a very substantial library). The filters are very good, but not resonant. The effects section offers very good editable presets, we color the sound as you want. Even facing today's standard, it does not have to fade. Powerful, stable, solid.
    Strings, pads, tablecloths: excellent.
    Acoustic instruments for it, better to take an arranger keyboard.
    Bass synth: not very powerful, but super cozy, did not expect the Stabb Loons.
    Finally, it is better to try before you buy, because I love a buddy hated.

    OVERALL OPINION

    My M1, I have not kept: finance requires, sometimes life leaves us no choice. But as soon as I have a great secondhand, I bought without hesitation.
    Regarding the secondhand market, is the way to € 400/450 very often it is too.
    € 250 seems a good price.
    Otherwise, the Korg T3 cheaper in secondhand (?), While this is an improved M1.
    So I will buy a M1 and T3: when you love ......

    a keyboard 25 years ago, but still running, six octaves, a hundred sounds, two multi-effects, joystick ... the rest is history

    missing knobs, but a slider value is very convenient to edit the parameters in real time (GPA Cutoff FX ...)

    UTILIZATION

    simple configuration, edition ultra sounds easy, especially a small sequencer, but unknown ultra fishing practice by the number of notes, but really effective!

    SOUNDS

    and quite frankly, it's easy, the M1 is a few tablecloths, a big organ sound of the 90s (which does not mean realistic, but immediately recognizable in hits such as Jaydee or Luv4Luv ...) and especially for a piano, which toured the dancefloors in the 90 '

    the output level is strong enough, claps sec. You will understand, if your style is jazz free jazz, I think it missed. However, if your trip is a bit of electro revival then you have a few presets that will be essential

    I put 10 for organ and piano, because I was looking for a long time and I had approached this without having found. the rest is spent rather

    OVERALL OPINION

    and of the M1, this is a keyboard that marked the spirit of musician who could not afford the full range of professional studio at the time.

    First workstation, it also killed some career Wavestation, which far exceeds the level, but not in use.

    M1 - Store in the Setup!!

    MIDI IN, OUT and THRU.
    13.5 Kg

    UTILIZATION

    The use of M1 is really simple. This is also the first real workstation. And it is also the basis of the architecture of all other Korg synths next ... The M1 has 8 soft keys under the screen to access most often at all values ​​of a given page. For example, the default page selection presets (Korg programs), displays a kind of quick edit with the most critical parameters (balance CSOs, filter, envelope, effect level ...). Combi mode, these buttons select the preset to play in each of the eight parts ... Very convenient! It is possible to change the sound quickly without going into publishing (especially useful for cutting effects recording ;)). Actually edit the sound is really not complicated, you can not get "lost" in M1. I also underlines the high quality of the keyboard (the same as the DX7) which allows him to take pride of place as a master keyboard in your config.

    SOUNDS

    Almost ALL presets have their original tube ^ ^ From Madonna (Piano PROG I41 8 ") Depeche Mode via The Orb (PROG I00 Universe), everyone used to the sounds of the M1 ... And because , samples and sound serious character (which lacks a bit today on the PCM synthesizers) and effects are fatal for some time to see beautiful (Flanger, Phaser 2, Set ...). It possible to expand the sonic palette via pairs of cards adding PCM multi-samples and presets.
    It is possible to accurately mimic acoustic instruments (a reference to the brass and flute ^ ^), but excels especially in mixing sounds of hammers to strings saturated in samples flanger analogs synths or play a little sound good digital multi-diluted ... A feast for the compo!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about 93. I've done several albums with and I love more!
    It is one of those rare synths have changed how to create instruments with electronics. Just like a Mini Moog, a DX7 or D50 :)
    In short, a classic to have!

    M1 is powerful for its time

    Korg M1Published on 03/25/12 at 21:03
    The Korg M1 is a digital synth that has been around for a long time. It has very good on board sounds and some of them I still use to this day. I really don’t pull it out much but when I do get this board out and plug it up and get right to work with these old school type of sounds. Most of them where used in music 10 plus years ago but I still love the way they sound.

    Its very easy to use and navigate on this board, but I was having some issues with the sequencing on this board. A lot of people don’t like the sequencing on this board at all.

    UTILIZATION

    Its very easy to use and navigate on this board, but I was having some issues with the sequencing on this board. A lot of people don’t like the sequencing on this board at all. Its not very good, reminds me of a sequencer that would have come on a cheap keyboard back in the 90’s. But this is not a cheap keyboard by any means, actually when it first came out it was consider a very high class board and most people couldn’t afford it. But now you can find them on eBay for pretty cheap.


    SOUNDS

    Sounds are great, not as good as the sounds on the M2 or M3 but still good. The good thing is if you have used all of the M line series you can really see how the keep progressing with the boards. So the Korg M’s will be a brand of boards that I will always use and purchase. With the M1 you really don’t have as much control over you sounds as you do on the M2 or M3. Seems like they just didn’t have the on board technology when they created this board to do what you can do with the next versions of it.


    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall, great board. Buy one used and you will love it and use it a lot then you will probably put it on ice for a while and not use it because you will run out of sounds or get board with the old school type of presets. But you will still pull it out from time to time and have a heck of a time.

    in truth, I suporte over his piano sound and foil layers of strings .. limit the voices that e is really beautiful ... So today is unimaginable for me to put one of his M1 in my components .. So I use it as master keyboard.

    OVERALL OPINION

    In the era and I bought ... I do it again the same choice. c'tait the best .. o commercial success elsewhere.
    but frankly, now I find the color too musical brand ... there are still guys who use it (I heard not long ago in a pub tl) ... Me, I can more, I have heard too much.

    I shed a tear of nostalgia ... because he has much paul for 8 years and now he spends a cozy retreat in master keyboard.

    Otherwise, in 8 years of concerts and always kind bowls mmorables ... I have 3 keys that cass and once the wheel ... all well kept ... So solid.
    small precision, made the gaffe right in the super litium ... change the minimum every three years ... otherwise you paumerez everything in memory ... Finally, j'me'm actually have a time ...

No need to get tons of sounds in a synth to make good music ... The sounds of plants may be exceeded but if s'atarde a bit to create your own sounds then it's huge! The current synths (and I) are not better or worse! The sequencer may be a fair bit today but still recorded on the sequencer?? There's computer for that is more flexible and much simpler.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have my Korg M1 for 13 years and I'm not about to part with it. It is beautiful, powerful, strong, and is perfect for my music. I had a lot of synth of its kind after the M1 but I sold them all because they are not better, not because the current machines include a super sampler, 36 separate outputs, 1012 sounds, 60 voices polyphonic, sequencer overpowered and 57 multitimbral parts they are "better". My Triton sold after four months, for example ...
    I would do this choice without a second's hesitation. With the D-50, the M1 is inimitable and remains for me the best synth. Long live the 80s!

    After the next "window dressing" a demonstration of this synth there was nothing left.
    To judge just listen to the demonstration plant was recorded on the sequencer ... It's grotesque.
    Ideal for variety but still with bombastic sounds old-fashioned.

    While it should not be the dominant synth but it has in the bank always the little sound that stands as the Wavestation also

    The manual provides only basic information, but the shipping is really simple trs.

    by against the squenceur Intgr no point - these days - nothing, it is totally Exceeds and really does not have enough memory (8800 notes), but n'ach not what you keyboard sounds squenceur any fawn!

    SOUNDS

    Oh la la ... ... the sounds of the M1 and Piano .... if spcial!
    What is certain is that this is not a sound of a Stainway but sincrement for someone looking for a first synth is the IDAL: full of sound DIFFERENT , from the natural sound (piano, organs, guitars ...) to the analog type sounds.
    The sounds are a little old Obviously - hence the rating I give this section - but we're talking about a machine that has 20 years, let Tolra!
    The keyboard is an excellent quality of the semi-weighted keys is perfect for use as a keyboard matre.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I had my first in 90, I sold a WAS before buying one again. I am then re-re-spar in 95 ... before buying one this year (so this is the time troisime j'achte this synth.
    As you can see, for me it's now a matter of feeling with this synth mythical Has a real rvolution the late 80's.
    The rating is low for extrmmement synthesis of this class, and even for a simple use of the master keyboard type dpense worth.

    I know this synth because many of my friends have a possder and I had the opportunity to use and tinker it.
    What in the top of M1 is dynamic! it's a slap Pette really.
    His point is not whether ngatif ngatif that he found so useful does color sound in a package of production during the 90's.
    The sounds are really used in certain contexts.

    used for the house or live to play Rock stuff, you can make nice with Rhodes by hacking or by using the waveforms of the PCM cards optional. the sounds of pan flutes, oboes, it is excellent, we do not forcment better today.

    Another weak point is the filter of M1 is almost nonexistent and ineffective, is still not doing good things. When comparing this with a casio synth hours of anything is when I see the opinion that t post below.
    The keyboard is trs enjoyable to play, too bad korg this grain is not preserved and this momentum to develop the newt and other current driver.
    If the Ensoniq VFX of t was more reliable and better marketed the M1 would never have had the success he had.
