Korg DSS-1

” This unit was released in 1986 and the highlights are 12bit,Analog Filter/envelope/VCA with 12 db or 24db filter mode and a pair of digital delays built in.Not only can it sample but is capable of additive synthesis and manually drawn waveforms.This unit is well worn, with discoloration and a white mark where it punched through some drywall(maybe?).The unit powers up fine and I have some disks I will include but I think the floppy might need to be replaced.It was working when I put it in storage 10 years ago but it won’t properly load Korg factory disks.If I get it working I will update this listing but for now it is sold AS-IS,in need of repair.I will ship this UPS ground within the contiguous U.S. only for a flat rate but I guarantee you it will cost me $130+ because of weight and size(it’s a tank).Packaged with bubble wrap, foam and heavy duty cardboard adult signature.”

“This is the 2nd DSS-1 I have listed, I currently have a DSS-1 in a separate listing so I am labeling this one #2.This DSS-1 is in good condition with minimal discoloration, the end checks are undamaged and the only problem is the return spring has come off of the lowest C# key and it does not trigger.I have some disks that are Korg branded/labeled that I will include, the disks load fine and the sound is powerful and crunchy just like you would expect 12 bit to be.To be clear, this unit powers on, loads discs and plays normally.I will include a manual and several Korg branded floppies.”

“Korg DSS-1 Vintage Sampler Synthesizer w/ A Lot Of 84 Sound Sample Disks library. Condition is for parts and not working. This is one of my favorite synthesizer/sampler workstations. It used to work fine and was in great shape until FedEx abused and destroyed it in mishandling. The keys are all smashed down and loose now. It’s officially a doorstop, maybe you can have it repaired and restored to life again. Keyboard and disks only, does not include any user manuals or documents.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Korg DW-8000 Vintage Synthesizer. Condition is “For parts or not working”.

For sale is the classic Korg DW-8000.

These are very lovely digital synthesizers with gorgeous sounding analog filters.

This unit powers on and the display works, but does not opperate. Some buttons seem to respond. I am not familiar with this synth and I only know it is missing it’s internal CR battery.

Cosmetically, it is in fantastic condition, especially for it’s age, with light wear on bottom.

I am not knowledgeable on these issues and am selling “as-is” until I can get a technician to service this. ” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“I had my tech replace the disk drive and checked the unit over. Please review the pics with the color tabs on them as those keys action are a little off and could use additional keys to make it ideal for playing although you can play the keys fine as they are. The middle black sharp Ab/G# is bent a little but playable which It probably could be adjusted and repaired. The keyboard comes with with 6 DSS1 floppy disks. This is a great pickup for a DSS-1 keyboard with great analog filters.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Korg DSS-1 Powers On/ AC Cord Included. This is a fairly complex keyboard the DSS-1 and I have no idea how it operates. It does power on and the screen can go through different settings. There is a floppy disk that comes with it although I could not seem to get it to load following instruction on the internet. With the correct disk and the experienced user this DSS-1 may work properly. This Korg DSS-1 is sold AS-IS and I must sell it as a “Parts Only” item as I do not know how to operate it.”
