  • KORG DSS-1 SAMPLER Upgraded w/USB support, backlit LCD, combo floppy & SCSI

    $495 plus shipping/insurance

    DSS-1 with the Tom Virostek's mod. It was purchased direct from Tom only a few months ago. If you're unfamiliar with Tom's mod, it really brings the DSS-1 into the 21st century...


    -16M X 12-bit (24MB) of memory (64 banks)
    -USB file storage with subdirectories (FAT file system for easy PC transfer)
    -more comprehensive diagnostics
    -ability to assign sliders to program parameters
    -ability to have all 4 systems from floppy (A-D) in memory at once
    -up to 64 multisounds at once (instead of 16)
    -128 programs at once (instead of 32)
    -samples stored on USB drive are in .WAV format
    -Auto Portamento has been implemented
    -Update from USB drive has been implemented

    I've loved using this beast, but I'm moving to a smaller space and won't have the room anymore. It functions perfectly, and to my knowledge Tom is sold out of pre-modded DSS-1s, so if you don't want to do the upgrade yourself this is the one to get. I will also include an SD card with the original DSS-1 library.

    I have little experience with Harmony-Central classifieds but I'm on ebay as lpettipoole with 100% feedback. I'm asking $495 plus shipping/insurance, which is what I paid. PM me if interested.

    If I can find my old floppies, I may be interested.

      Shouldn't be needed. You can download the ENTIRE DSS-1 sample library in the new format and toss them all on a flash drive. Total size is about 350 megs.

        I might also be interested in doing a trade on this. I'm into vintage stuff mostly....samplers, keyboards, old rack effects, spring verbs, tape delays, guitar pedals, mics, preamps, whatever. PM me!
