“Up for auction is a Korg DSM-1 sampler/synthesizer.

This sampler/synth is similar to the keyboard version DSS-1, though I’m not sure whether this has the “draw waveform” capabilities of the DSS-1. I know it has the “additive synth” capabilities, though the process is a bit arcane.

The most unique feature is probably the 16 individual outputs. Because of this feature, many like to treat this module as a dedicated drum sampler (compare, for example, a Linndrum, which has individual outs for each sound). I have used this device only a couple of times (since I simply didn’t have the time to learn its system). I will say this: it sounded gritty and amazing (I used it for drum sounds).

Cosmetically it looks pretty good, though there are the usual scratches one finds with a piece of old gear. It does not need an operating system to function (as, for example, the Roland S-760), though if you want to save sounds etc., it may need that kind of a disk. I am not the original owner and such a disk did not come with this device.” Link

“This is the RARE rack mount version of DSS-1! This is a GREAT 12-bit sampler with a synthesizer built in, which derives from the DW series of Korg’s synths, actually the best and most advanced DW ever made! This has the same specs with the keyboard version DSS-1, but with expanded memory, 2x polyphony, individual outputs, most of the DW waveforms and an updated floppy drive. Voice architecture is model specific. Two polyphonic voice modes are provided. See detailed specs on the bottom of the listing….

The instrument works excellent, floppy drive is fully working and the display is great too! Cosmetically this is in a great condition, as you can see in the pictures. This has been treated with care, in a non-smoking studio environment.

This is a truly RARE and HARD TO FIND item, this is a DSS-1 on steroids, without all the wasted space from its keyboard. This sits perfectly in your rack of samplers/sound modules, and it comes with its rack ears (not displayed in the pics, as I’ve used it in a desktop environment). It also comes with its power cord (220V).” Link

“This is a Korg DSM-1 Synthesizer/Sampler complete with owners manual and 29 third party sound disks. The unit was bought in 1988 from Sam Ash New York City. The DSM-1 can load and play DSS-1 samples and sounds. Some say the DSM-1 was the rack version of the DSS-1 but this is not really true. Though DSM-1 can read DSS-1 sounds, it doesn’t have the digital delay and resonance control of filters that DSS-1 has. It’s really better to see the DSM-1 as a separate unit. I tend to see it as being stronger on the sampler end (more memory) than the synth end whereas the DSS-1 was stronger on the synth end than the sampler end. I used the DSM-1 primarily for creating my own samples. It was my first sampler in fact.

The DSM-1 is a 12-bit sampler module with 2Mb of memory. It can sample at 16, 24, 32 and 48 kHz.
The DSM-1 is 16-voice polyphonic synthesizer
Back panel has 16 1/4″ jacks for individual audio output. This is great for separating out a drum kit.

To bring this unit into our era, I would recommend Sound Quest Universal editor which lets you control the DSM-1 from your computer. You can even integrate it into your DAW and use it the same way as soft-synths.” Link

“You are bidding on a used vintage 1980′s sampling synthesizer rarity (Korg DSM-1) and an effects processor (Alesis Multiverb III 3 Effects without power supply). The Korg DSM-1 is in working condition (also floppy drive) and comes with a floppy disc that will load piano sounds. In the pictures you can see the device loading the system and then I switch it to play piano sounds. I have also tested that I can get sounds out of the headphone jack and I can control it via MIDI. ” Link
