Korg DDD-1

   1 review  -  3083 views
    The Korg DDD-1 drum machine released in 1986. This unit was the flagship rhythm unit from Korg at the time, which could be expanded with up to 4 ROM cards of additional sounds, as well as a functioning sampler with an added RAM card. This machine features basic drum sounds that can be tuned, and assigned to any of the 6 extra outputs. Additionally, the DDD-1 has full MIDI capabilities, tape in/out for saving, metronome, and clock outputs. The Korg DDD-1 was a monumental drum synth in it's day and is still highly regarded for it's sounds and sequencer.

I bought one of these when they came out. My friends thought I was crazy to spend so much money on a machine, when I could have bought a real drum kit for the money. I bought some cards for it too. I remember getting the Bass Card. It didn't sound that good really.
