I just won the auction on eBay for the Korg DSM-1 (lucky one!), looking forward to get it :-) I'm a DSS-1 owner since nearly 20 years and always surprised of the unbelievable sound of this Dinosaur :-). Thinking the DSM-1 has the same sound capabilities, except the delay. José Antonio Pereira, from where do you get the SCSI Kit, WOW! I need one urgently! Can u please tell me, where you got it from? PLEASE! Thanks a lot!

i've been using intensively my DSM1 for 15 years and it is still a mainstay in my homestudio..in order to appreciate this machine to the fullest you need something like a 16 channels line mixer rack on top (i use a cheap fostex line mixer 2016) and a bit of discipline i guess..one can make crazy combos with many different programs and variations..the way sounds can be assigned to the 16 outputs is very clever IMO, it can either produce some nice soundswaps, overlappings or pannings etc for each channels/banks once reg-grouped and re-routed (stereo anyone?) possible to select samplerate 8, 16, 32 or 48 for each sound if you need those extra seconds or want the higher or lower def. i only wished that thing had the filters of a dss1.

This Sampler has the secretary sampling method. You can make a HEAVY-PHUNCHY rhythm track with this Sampler. This 12bit machine is "Secret-Weapon" of many famous hiphop Producers.

It has a kind of cool, loopy, grainy 12-bit sound. It's great if you just use it for pianos, string sounds or basses, but don't bother trying to use the 16 multiple outputs for drums--they don't work! I could never figure them out, which is too bad, because it came with some really cool Phil Collins and Def Leppard drum samples. But it was useless to me if I couldn't run the snare and bass drum to separate outputs! It's also a nightmare to combine the sounds so you don't have to keep reloading disks. So it gets credit for great sound, but horrible marks for remarkably poor functionality! I should've bought a Roland...

Clean sound for a 12bit machine. Less programming capabilities than the DSS-1 (which I also own) but it's still an elegant sampler with lot of options. I recently got the SCSI Kit and now I'm searching for SCSI hard disk drives for it.
