Korg DSS-1 Digital Sampling Synthesizer SN 000694
via this auction
"A wonderful early digital synthesizer. With eight notes of polyphony, two oscillators per voice, a noise source, two multi-stage envelopes, a resonant filter and auto-bend, the DSS-1 has much in common with Korg's previous flagship DW-8000. But it went much further, boasting twin digital delays, oscillator sync, an improved unison mode, a lush analog VCF switchable between 12 and 24dB, and more. Whereas the DW-8000 got its raw material from 16 stored digital waves, the DSS1's oscillators take their source from sampling, additive synthesis, or even hand-drawn waveforms"
I forget what waveforms are present for the oscillators. Do they include the DW-8000 waveforms or just your standard ones? If you know, feel free to comment. I found this DW-8000 resource site, but didn't see them listed, quickly parsing through the site.
