This was my first workstation when I shelled out $1700 cash for a used one back in '96.. but I must say to this day, that it was one of the fastest workstations to pump out songs on. The OS was robust and it was built like a tank.

This keyboard is still STRONG for its pads and weird sounds once you start tinkering with the waveshaping. It's very organic and has that same 32k grunginess that the wavestation has.

Oddly, this feature was removed from the N and N series even though its one of the most refreshing elements of a Korg Synth in a long time.

Biggest con of the Unit: The Disk Drive uses DD disks and was plagued with the all to common "Data Error" on some sequence and patch loades. But then again, nothing SysEX dumping couldnt fix.

Also - Korg wanted $500 for a replacement floppy drive because htey convieniently changed the pin arrangements. How clever Korg :P

The predecessor of the korg trinity, don't have same incredible sound and synthesis stuff but is a good keyboard, for a classical elettronic and sampled sound, but have many limit in the synthesis, for the filter, this filter don't have resonance and is only one model lpf, but have a waveshaping for create brand new sonority and waves...

I have played O1WFD for six years in a band in a big church. It has many wonderful multi-layered pads and strings, and played together with good piano player, the result is heavenly and rich sounds. I especially love multi-layer, because I can produce different sounds without changing combination/patch. This is very useful in live performances. For classical pop and rock, this synth is perfect. But for modern dance, simply don't use this 91's keyboard. But don't rely too much for lead sounds in this synth. Roland's are better. Roland have stronger lead-sound character.

O1WFD is great synth in budget price. Play it, and it sounds just awesome. Thanks for reading. Nugi

This keyboard changed my life. For years I only dreamed of the day I could hear my music the way I heard it in my head. The O1/W FD changed that. When my oldest son went off to college, I gave it to him and bought myself a new Triton. There are a lot of nice tech advancements on the Triton and I don't think I would want to be with out it. But, the most of the sounds don't even hold a candle to the O1. The O1's pads are incredible, the guitars, acoustic and electric are so rich, fat and expressive.

My son just graduated and he brought it home with him. I sat down at it and couldn't stop playing. The flutes, saxes, english and french horns...man, I could solo on any of them all day long. So expressive. I am going to have to buy another one or maybe two. Like everyone else, I agree that they could have done better in the key department and the polyphony is not up to today's standards, but what I really want to know is what ever happened to these sounds on the new boards? It is simply a wonderful experience.
