Look first at how many idiots said they liked the synth and gave it a 1 or 0 rating!!! They brought down the average rating even though they like it...

First, keyboard feel/action. There is a particular thrust feeling in the keys that set this keyboard apart from many other "synth actions". It's a light touch (unweighted) but has some interesting springs which give enough tension to feel great.

Second, sound. It was years ahead when released in '92, and most of the sounds hold up to recent synths. The dual effects section is VERY clean and each has 2 band EQ... very effective. No resonant filters, but tricks can be performed with the "waveshaping" feature as well as the effects to provide what you need.

Third, support. LOTS of people out there using this board are on the web. A Yahoo egroup devoted to the 01/W has all you need, advice, patches, parts sources.

Finally - I've owned an 01/W in some form (non-floppy, FD and now the Pro) since '93. It's still an inspiration and a pleasure.

I'm looking for a used Korg 01W FD to buy, preferably in good condition with a case, pedal, maybe a stand and cards/software. If you know of anyone willing to part with his/hers, I'd like to talk with them.

Thanks

Ted

ALTHOUHG I HAVE OTHER AND NEWER SYNTH'S, THE 01W/FD IS STILL MY BEST CHOISE WHEN IT COMES TO SEQUENCING (WITHOUT THE USE OF A COMPUTER, OF COURSE). THIS KEYBOARD HAS GOT TO BE ONE OF THE BEST MODELS EVER MADE BY KORG IN THE 90'S. NEWER EDITIONS HAVE COME UP WITH IMPROVED SYSTHEMS AND APPLICATIONS, BUT IT ALL STARTED WITH THE GOOD OLD 01W VERSION.
