It's a great instrument. Great sounds ! Vibes,Sax,Pads ( with own chorus ),Fretless it's real ! And M1 have most easy-to-programm sequencer ! Bad that it's impossible to make counts like 7/4 etc.& it's difficult to make swingin' rhythm. But I don't now other sequncers that allows to make music so simple & fast :)

I've had the Korg M1 since june 29,1991 up to this day it has never let me down. You can edit the sounds of the Korg M1 and make it sound like Roland D-20 or D-50 Keyboard like Van Halens Synth Brass in Jump, it's a total killer! lot's of powerfull sounds, you just need to unlock the power of this simple workstation. I also like the elec. piano 4 and the drums. great solo Sax too.

What can I say? I use this synth up to this day in almost in every production I make. It has just great ambient pads, saxophones and strings. The sounds cut thru the mix in a good way. Loving it cause it has such a musical feel to it. The superb effect section can do wonders with the simple synth engine. The downside is boring filters with no resonance, many pretty unusable 1980´s waveforms and some hissy noise here and there. As a multi timbral workstation it is very weak today but if you use it solo with two effects it can stand out amazingly. A true pcm classic!

one of the ultimate pad machines. programming is not very deep, but as long as you steer clear of slap bass and trumpet sounds, everything you come up with on this synth oozes lushness and a very warm, orchestral quality. the beauty lies in the sampling artefacts and limited memory - it lends the m1 a certain abstraction that newer, more realistic machines lack. korg got a lot of things right with this one: very good keyboard (only wish the korg z1 had this keyboard action) and warm sounding effects (they, too are superior to the z1´s, which came out almost 10 years later... basically only a rompler, but the sounds are heartbreakingly beautiful, like on old string ensembles. you just want to play and play and ...

I recently got an M1REX. I also have later KORG synths like 01/W, Wavestation SR, etc., but I believe M1 has better sounds.

Here I uploaded M1REX .mp3 sound examples on my site. Please take a look and tell me what you think.
