Korg 01/w Digital Synthesiser WorkStation - 240V

Korg's 01/W workstation synthesiser debuted in 1991 as the follow-up to the popular M1. The 01/W was the second chapter in Korg's workstation legacy, which goes on to this day with the Triton and Oasys series. The 01/W was geared towards beginning home studio enthusiasts that wanted to take a step further into a more professional realm. Compared with the M1, the 01/W featured many enhancements including a more dynamic 16-track sequencer (the M1 only had 8-tracks), 254 real world sampled instruments to the M1's 100, polyphony was doubled from 16 to 32 voices, and greater overall control.

  • This is a used 01/W

  • This unit is overall in good condition. It shows some nicks and small scratches. There is nothing which detracts from the use or functionality of the synth. Please see photos. 

  • The floppy disk drive on this unit does not work. It does not read, write or eject disks. A synth savvy person could swap it out with a replacement or a more modern SD or USB emulator. 

  • This unit has had a minor service. A new memory battery has been installed, some tact switches were replaced, factory sounds have been reloaded and it has had a good clean inside and out.

  • This sale is for the unit only. No other parts or accessories are included. The M1 powers on with a standard IEC cable. This cable is not included in the sale.

  • This unit is 240V. This means it is ready play within Australia. If you purchase from overseas you may need a step-up transformer. Please enquire if you are unsure.
