I have my M1 about 3 years.I bought it because i've heard many positive opinions about.The sound is cristal,very high quality on audio output.It has very good organs,e.pianos(esp.E.Piano4-based on DX7 classic sound)and pads.I also love its Piano sound - specific,deep,sharp,a little bit plastic...many people says that M1 piano is lack and unnatural,but hey...it's early 90's stuff!I Have also Roland JV50 with SC55 and pianos on it just "drowning" in live gigs.Only M1 piano is so bright and selective,and "sit in a mix" so well.The best for rock,and also - jazz gigs!The sounds are very characteristic and recognizable in many music productions.Only polyphony is too small...especially in combi mode.That's the only serious reason that i gave "4".But overall - this synth rocks!Drum kits are powerfull and just kicks! I'm sorry for my english,but i've learned only from TV.

The Korg M1 is still able to produce many good sounds including pads, which is what I use it for. The sequencer is difficult to use and I dont use it now. Get the EX version if you can. It was a big synth in the nineties being used by people like The Cure, The KLF, Aqua Blue Music (pad sounds), The Orb, Bomb The Bass, Plastikman. Still worth a listen and a little play.

After all these years it is still a powerful and impressive synth. In multi-mode, sounds go in all directions. 8 sounds independently doing their thing. Some synths can do it via midi. This can do it in real time. 8 sounds stacked together. There were no compremises with this synth. It was a top end product. Great keys and built like a nuclear bunker.

Pads and leads are especially good. The best envelope control I have seen on a synth. 2 independent and totally programmable effects units. Some sounds are horribly familiar. You have to work not to sound like everyone else, but the synth is capable enough.

The Korg M1 is my 1st.& only synth. I enjoy editing the sounds of the M1. The brass sounds are thick, the bass is crunchy, I love mixing the piano and strings together. Also panning the patches to full stereo. I use it w/an external sequencer MC-50. The only thing i hate is the weight. The M1 never lets me down. I've learnd how to use the M1 from my freinds who are in the music industry. I'm proud to have this classic synth. Here the M1 cost 69,000 thousand bucks that was 1991. Now it cost around 35,000 w/c is not bad. I wish i could find some Rom cards out there.
