Korg MS-1 MicroSampler 

The latest addition to the Korg "micro" series serves up sampling with a powerful performance punch! The microSAMPLER delivers multi-mode sampling, resampling, Pattern Sequencing and over-the-top effects – and all under a fun-to-use intuitive interface. More than just a sampler, the microSAMPLER is a complete sound design studio for creating up-to-the minute loops and phrases. (korg)


 This MS-1 has been used.

 The unt is working well and sounds great. All switches and knobs are responsive. Everything is functional. 

 This MS-1 is in good physical condition. It shows a small amount of wear like some nicks, light scratches and scuffs, however, nothing major at all. The power switch cap is not original. Please see photos for more details.

•This unit will ship with its genuine power supply. The power supply is 100-240V and can be used anywhere in the world. At the moment it has a Japan/USA plug end. To use it in Australia you will need a little travel adaptor. (If you are unsure about this please ask before purchase)

•This unit can also be powered by 6AA batteries. These are not included in this sale. 

 This sale is for the MS-1 and power supply only. Absolutely nothing else is included in this sale.

 The sample banks A through to H are empty and ready for you to get creative with! If you would like to hear some preloaded sounds you will need to load from the ROM bank. If you are unfamiliar with this unit, I would highly suggest downloading the free user manual from Korg. Personally, I did not find the MS-1 intuitive to begin with, but once you get the hang of it, the MS-1 is great fun! Especially for someone who has not done much sampling before.
