the M1 is as valuable as a synth or workstation as ever. the sounds are all entirely repairable if you just take the time and do it. to be fair it isnt GM so as a desktop multimedia synth it is a bit outdated. but to play and sequence out of, you could do a lot worse. i have 4 albums out, and nobody has complained about the synth sounds, they are mostly the m1ex i have had from the start. if you have a choice between a new casio or psr yamaha, or a used korg m1, go for the m1!!!

The KORG M1 is a holy instrument. Its keyboard is wonderfull and His sounds are very warm. My M1 resets itself once in a while and that really sucks, but it's a God, so what can I do? Right, love it!

Good things are: Pianosound, Cool effects, Its look, Good keyboard,

Quite usable waveforms

Less good things: My multisounds are bugging all the time - the M1 keeps changing

my settings. The sequencer.

I've owned my M1 for about 7 years and found it to be extremely expressive. Not being an accomplished keys player I learned to use the sequencer and pattern recorder to make up for my lack of training and am very pleased with my results. I only wish you could effect tracks individually, although you can do that panpot thing to get 2 different f\x on separate tracks.

Recently, I had Cakewalk 6.0 installed on my PC and can not get it to play back on any channel other than 1. I'm hoping this is an easy fix or an oversight on my part since I am fairly new to MIDI but any input is welcome.

I noticed another person writing in has the same problem (drop me a line).

The only other problems I've had are the occasional button not acctivating on the first push (or 2nd or 3rd sometimes) and I had to replace the internal battery but even that was very recent and I imagine this happens over time with heavy use. And yes, the memory fills up real fast.

Overall, I love this keyboard. It has taken me to places I wouldn't have gone with just a piano or non sequencing machine and allowed me to express myself in ways I couldn't before. Any instrument that does this is successful.

What can anyone say about the M1 that hasn't already been said? It is still used all over the world. I've read some of the reviews on this site and am amazed that people even mention that they still use the factory sounds. I've had my M1 for about 8 years and I don't even remember the factory sounds except maybe 00 Universe. Its so easy to program and use, coupled with the fact that there are many banks available from everywhere that it seems a waste of time to even use them. I myself have around 120 banks of Prog's which I would be willing to trade for a small fee. Email me if anyone is interested..... P.s. If anyone wants a copy of the video by Julian Colbeck, I have one but its not really much good, except perhaps, for beginners. P.P.s the sequencer...... Never even tried to use it.......
