    Description
    1988 ushered in a new era for Korg with release of the M1 Musicworkstation. The new digital instrument introduced Korg's AI synthesis that uses high quality sampled PCM waveforms for it's oscillators and processed digitally through the M1's synthesis engine.

    Considered by Korg to be the first workstation type of instrument where it kept everything completely self contained with it's own built in sounds and effects while also able to connect outside itself through MIDI.

    M1 sounds featured 16 voices in single mode and 8 voices in double mode. It also has Combination mode which allows the user to play up to 8 single programas layered or split across it's 61 key keyboard.

    The high quality digital PCM samples offer a variety of acoustic, synthesizer, and drum/percussion sounds. It also has a wide variety of onboard effects with 2 effects blocks. the instrument also features 2 expansion slots using Korg's proprietary ram and rom cards. 1 slot for sample rom expansion and the other for program/combination expansion for up to an extra 100 each. The sequencer offered up to 77,000 events but was reduced to 44,000 when the memory is allocated to 100 programs/combinations. The keybed was the same as that of the popular DX7 was velocity sensitive, has aftertouch, and, featured Korg's prominent X/Y joystick.
