dss-1” This is a rare upgraded Korg DSS-1 (DSS-MSRK). It has 2 megabytes in RAM, SCSI port with an external 20 Megabyte self powered hard drive (Hyperdrive FX/20). Over 50 sound disks, all original manuals, and flight case. I had the upgrade done in 1988. It is my understanding that there were only somewhere about 250-300 of these upgrades ever done from Korg. Everything works perfect and is in excellent condition. The case is worn, but it does it’s job. Originally purchased DSS-1 for 2300.00 dollars, upgrade 1,000.00 dollars, hard drive another 1,000.00 and case 150.00 dollars. To say it drained my bank account back in 1988 is an understatement, but I loved sampling and the sounds were great! Own a great keyboard and a piece of history!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

DSS-1, Korg @ 30 May 2015, Comments Off on Korg DSS-1

used korg dss1“You’re bidding on a Working Vintage 1986 Analog Korg DSS-1 Synthesizer with Star Flight Case. The unit powers up and all push buttons function and light up as intended. I was unable to test the keys as I do not have the instrument floppy disks. The original power plug was removed and a cord was spliced in. I suspect the former owner couldn’t locate a replacement cord. I checked the splice and wrapped it in new electrical tape. The leftmost key sticks in the down position, but pops back up when touched. There are general surface scratches consistent with a piece of this age.

Also included in the auction is a Star Flight Case. I have wire-wheeled all of the aluminum trim and handles to the best of my ability, removed the old foam and glue, and installed new foam purchased directly from Star Case here in Indiana. Please note there are two more pieces of foam to be installed to ensure the DSS-1 will fit properly. Star Case estimates the case to be 1980’s vintage. There are a few small scuff marks on the black portions of the case. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Der Korg DSS-1 zählt zu den ganz großen Klassikern der 80er Jahre und ist nur mehr selten zu bekommen. Der DSS-1 arbeitet noch mit echten, analogen Filtern, kann jedoch Dank additiver Synthese auch Digital-Klänge erzeugen. Der 12-BitSampler klingt “Vintage” sehr gut und brilliert durch eine komplette analoge Nachbearbeitung mit VCF, VCA und Hüllkurven.

Dieses Gerät ist eine einmalige Spezialanfertigung und birgt einen vollständigen DSS-1 in einem praktischen 19″ Gehäuse. Nicht zu verwechseln mit dem DSM-1, der keine analogen Filter mehr hat.

– Floppy-Laufwerk neu

– Displaybeleuchtung neu

– Soundlibrary mit ca 50 Disketten

– Handbuch

– Netzkabel

Dies ist eine Privatauktion, keine Gewähr, Garantie oder Rücknahme.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

dss1 “Up for sale is a fully functioning Korg DSS-1 Sampler/ Synthesizer from 1986. A real monster that has been forgotten through the sands of time. The super warm DSS-1 comes with 8 SSM filter chips.

8x NJM-2069 VCF (clone version SSM-2044 from Korg)

12 Bit sampling, with Bit crushing capabilities down to 6-Bit. Dual Digital Delay on board from 1986 is also very warm sounding.

Included in the sale is the DSS-1, Bound manual, original power cable(rare), 5 floppy disks loaded with sound banks. A case is not included, so it would be wise to bring something to transport in if you plan on purchasing.”

“I bought this synth in 1989 for $1000 cash from a private seller in Tampa, Florida. We have shared many gigs and studio hours together, but after 25 years I no longer have the time or desire to play music. I would like to find a new home for my old friend and also have the power supply and 35 floppy sound disks (Piano, Organ, Guitar, Saxophone, Drums etc.). It’s missing a couple of plastic knobs for sliders, but they are easily replaceable or you can just use your fingers to adjust the sliders like I have for the last 10 years. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” A wonderful early digital synthesizer. With eight notes of polyphony, two oscillators per voice, a noise source, two multi-stage envelopes, a resonant filter and auto-bend, the DSS-1 has much in common with Korg’s previous flagship DW-8000. But it went much further, boasting twin digital delays, oscillator sync, an improved unison mode, a lush analog VCF switchable between 12 and 24dB, and more. Whereas the DW-8000 got its raw material from 16 stored digital waves, the DSS1’s oscillators take their source from sampling, additive synthesis, or even hand-drawn waveforms! includes owners manual” Click here to visit listing on eBay

DSS-1, Korg @ 26 October 2013, Comments Off on Korg DSS-1

“For sale is a very nice condition Korg DSS-1. This has been a one user synth in a home environment, not a studio. It is in really nice shape – no marks or defects and the LED display contrast is still very good. The only evidence of use is some dust in the crevices and some age deterioration of the fiberboard on the underside.

This comes with a power cord and nothing else; no disks. It powers up nicely and all of the menus work. Because I don’t have the disks, I am not able to properly test the disk drive. I did try to format a disk using the onboard functions and, although the drive light turned on and there was activity, the formatting was not successful. This may have been because I don’t have the right format of floppy disk, but for purposes of this auction, ASSUME THAT THE DISC DRIVE IS NON-FUNCTIONING AND WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED. That way, if you get it to work, it is a bonus in your favor.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Der Korg DSS-1 befindet sich in einem sehr guten technischen Zustand, das Diskettenlaufwerk wurde vor einem Jahr erneuert.

Das Display ist immer noch Kontrastreich mit blauer Backgroundbeleuchtung. Optisch ist der DSS-1 auch in einem guten Zustand, lediglich ein paar kleinere Gebrauchsspuren sind vorhanden.

Das Betriebssystem befindet sich im Rom, es kann also direkt losgelegt werden. Ich lege noch ein paar Disketten dazu.

Das Gerät wird sicher verpackt, eine Abholung Vorort (Raum Hannover) ist auch möglich.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

DSS-1, Korg @ 21 September 2013, Comments Off on Korg DSS-1

“The DSS-1 has its operating system stored on ROM chips, so if you lose your floppy disks you can still boot the system up (unlike the E-mu Emulator, Ensoniq Mirage, and early Roland samplers which required you always have a floppy disk containing the OS). However, each time you boot up the DSS-1 you will not have any sounds available at your fingertips until you load a system into memory from floppy disk. This can usually take anywhere from 20 to 40 seconds, depending on the size and number of multisamples contained in that system. The floppies that the DSS-1 understands are the older DSDD (double-sided double-density) disks that were also used on the Ensoniq Mirage and on early Macintosh computers. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for auction is a Korg DSS-1 keyboard in very good condition. All components are tested and working – joystick, floppy drive, keys, etc.

The DSS-1 is capable of both additive synthesis and sampling. The additive synthesis engine has some unique capabilites, such as the option to draw your own waveforms, or, alternatively, to set the relative levels of each of 128 sine waves to control the harmonic content of the waveform with precision. As far as sampling, the DSS-1 is capable of bit-crushing samples from 12 to 6 bits, for grunge and glitch effects. You can also use the oscillator sync function with samples, making the DSS-1 capable of some truly unique sounds. To top this all off is fully analog sound shaping circuitry, including a switchable 12db or 24db analog filter, and two digitally controlled delay units.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Everything works great though. I have burned 12 discs using COPY QM software and will include a CD for with all of the samples to transfer to 3.5″ DD floppies. Each disc contains up to 32 sounds. Some great Hammond B-3’s, Grand pianos, old synth sounds, strings, etc. This thing sounds fat and wonderful!

“Rare KORG DSS-1
Vintage Synthesizer / Sampler with Analog Filters
INCLUDES KORG SAMPLE LIBRARY – VERY COOL!

Up for the bid, a vintage Korg DSS-1 synthesizer and sampler with famous analog filters!

This unit is in fair physical condition (many marks and scratches on the face plate and sides/back) but it appears to be working properly as far as I can tell (although I haven’t tested MIDI ports recently but they did work in the past). Some buttons are bit sticky (like the up and down buttons next to Data Entry A slider but when I started using them they soften up and worked fine).

The synth comes with over 30 discs of sample library, most original Korg DSS-1 library (some discs are still sealed as seen on the pictures). I loaded some of the discs and they sound incredible! This is a great find so get your hands on it before it’s gone! I also include a cable and soft case (with wheels) as a part fo the auction (not shown on the pictures but it’s included!).” Click here to visit listing on eBay
