“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
