KORG M1 - exploring the original factory presets

video upload by CGMAGIK

"In 1989 I bought a KORG M1. My first big musical purchase. I think it was $2500 at the time and I took out my first bank loan to do it. An incredible synth and workstation in it's day and I used that thing HEAVILY for many years to follow. I used it all through my days at Berklee College of Music in the early 90s, for composing, sequencing, arranging and on many gigs.
This particular M1 is not the original one that I had, but one that was recently gifted to me by a local High School. It's missing the joystick, so luckily for all of you there is no gratuitous pitch bending action in this video :)
I'm surprised how great some of these sounds still are all these years later! Playing through these presets really brought back some great memories and feelings."
