Korg M1 VS Korg 01 W

Recommended Posts

The question is simple. Which one do you prefer and why. I tend to like more of the M1, just sounds more 80s and atmospheric. Also many hits where made with this. The 01 w although much more advanced seems it does not have the same apeal music wise.

I like them both, but IMO there is no doubt that the M1 had a bigger impact on the music scene when it was first released, so I’ll have to give it the nod.

The M1 by far because of it's impact on Reggae and Tejano music.  Some guys still have them in their rigs and they still have a decent residual.  Someone at Korg told me when the O1W came out in the 1990's they had to cancel tons of orders for M1.   I have M1 stuff in my Kronos and I still go to it for certain things.  Stuff like the 41 piano and Cloud nine 60 patches are legendary.
