Korg DSS-1 80's Vintage Polyphonic Sampling Keyboard - 100V 
*Floppy NOT Working*
The DSS-1 was released in 1986. Is a digital polyphonic sampling synthesiser. It has 8 voices with two oscillators per voice, noise, two envelopes a filter, and auto-bend, twin digital delays, oscillator sync, unison mode and much more! It is capable of some pretty warm sounds as well as deep bass and drones. The DSS-1 was also released as the DSM-1 in rack form a couple of years later. 



• This unit has been used. 

• This unit shows a small amount of wear, mostly on the side panels. Overall it is a really nice piece for a unit that is 33 years old. Please see photos.

• Unfortunately this unit has one fault, which is the floppy disk drive is not working. A synth savvy person could swap it out with a replacement or an emulator. 

• Besides the floppy drive, this unit is functioning and sounding as it should.

• Please be aware this unit is 100V. This means you MUST connect it to the correct step-down transformer before powering it on. We have some 240V-100V units for use in Australia. Please see our other listings. If you are from overseas you may also need a step-down. Please contact us if you are unsure or have any questions.
