“Korg M1 wavetable synthesizer keyboard. Up for sale is a Korg M1 synthesizer keyboard. The unit will need some restoration work however it is still in playable condition. The middle E flat key needs to have a spring replaced and some of the presets don’t seem to align properly. I was able to toggle through up to 50 preinstalled presets and access almost all the sounds but some of them such as no. 7 (harp) was not accessible and a couple of the others seemed mismatched i.e. the preset no.17 was labeled as chorale but seemed closer to the organ sound made famous by Crystal Waters “Gypsy Woman”. Also several months ago the synh was experiencing some clipping sounds if the volume was turned up too high or if I progressed through the presets too quickly. Thankfully this has seemed to stop but I wanted to make mention of it. The joystick is in good functioning condition. The edit and demo mode also seem to be working as should. I’m not intimately familiar with this synth so haven’t done extensive testing so their could be something else going on that I didn’t catch.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This Korg M1 is in rough shape due to sitting in an attic for years. It’s missing the joystick and a few keypad buttons. I don’t have any cards or cartridges so I can’t verify further functionality. All keys do work and it does produce sound as expected. Really it just needs some parts and TLC, so this might be one heck of a deal! Due to its age and condition I am selling this AS-IS with NO RETURNS.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Classic synth still in full working order. In general decent condition bodywork but some paint chips under the keys where it’s been on stands and some marking on the top where some notes had been stuck on. See photos. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Korg M1 keyboard vintage workstation keyboard synth circa 1988.

The best selling synth in the 80s this is the legendary Korg M1. Hear it on many 80s and 90s songs and this is a solid, metal bodied digital synth with a 8 track 8 song sequencer built in so it let’s you make studio sounding 16 bit songs . I can show you how to replicate say 80 percent of some 80s synth hits in minutes using this alone.

Brand new memory battery fitted so will last years now, with the exact factory presets reloaded, so its as it was new in 1988!

Looks great, one of the better ones, for like 37? yrs old, so treat yourself and take a trip to the 80s golden age of synth music, everything works it seems fully tested the number select buttons can need a firmer press typical of the age but all working great today. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Some marks and tape – please study photos for condition – not in prime condition!

To do, at least:

Internal battery is low – needs replacing.

Left audio out crackly -whilst replacing battery check this.

Once above done you’ll need to reload the sounds.

At present the default piano only.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Korg M1 vintage workstation / synthesizer + case. Needs some attention

I’m selling this on behalf of Leeds music-based mental health charity Cloth Cat and any money will go to them. I’m afraid this means I don’t know much about it as I don’t own it and we don’t know its history. It’s been knocking around for a while.

The summary is that it looks OK but has lost most of its sounds. It occasionally takes a while to come on(when the display shows a row of green rectangles for a while).

When it comes on, the display reads ‘Init Prog’ and plays a piano sound. When in the ‘Global’ menu there’s also a drum kit sound. After a look on the internet I’ve concluded that it’s lost its factory sounds, the most likely reason being that the internal battery has run out at some point.

So…I downloaded the sounds from the Korg website and got a midi / USB cable and some software and tried reloading the sounds following a YouTube video (after fitting a new internal battery following another YouTube video). And it hasn’t worked – like the information wasn’t going in or wasn’t being saved for some reason. There aren’t very many videos showing you what to do and it could be operator error or something missing in the instructions I have – or something wrong with the thing itself. But we need to sell this ‘as is’ with no returns – so you might just know what to do or it might need serious attention.

More negative stuff: The case isn’t in great condition and one of the 2 combination locks on the case has been broken – though I do have the numbers and it holds closed on one side. The knob on the end of pitch wheel seems to be missing and most of the retaining screws both externally and internally have gone – there are justenough to hold everything in place. And we I don’t have any sound or memory cards for this I’m afraid.”

“Korg M1 Workstation + Flight Case and various memory cards.

I was gifted this synth as I was desperate for a new keyboard. Sadly it is of no use to me as I actually needed a weighted piano to do some session work with. I have no idea how to use this but I have plugged it in with some headphones and I have played it but that’s as far as my technical expertise goes! 😂 It was definitely working perfectly when my friend had it so I assume that nothing has changed.

Comes complete with several memory cards (see photos), power supply and pedal.

Flight case is included but there is no stand!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Some time ago the backup battery needed changing, up to that point it had all been working fine. I changed the battery but when I attempted to reinstall the system from a backup it said the battery still needed changing. Now it doesn’t power up at all, I’m not sure why.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“unit is clean and has just minor wear and no damage. we powered it on and it initially indicated internal battery low on display so it probably needs replaced. it produced good sound through a speaker and the headphone jack. one key was sticking (2nd Ab) and will need attention. see video. we had it playing many different instruments prior to the video but couldn’t figure out how to do it again once we turned it off except for the drums for the video. the video just shows that it powers on and is working.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Korg M1 Music Workstation Synthesiser With Flight Case.

I have had this keyboard since about 1999 and used it regularly for shows and recording until recently. It has quite a few knocks and scratches on the body, all cosmetic (and mostly occurring before I bought it) please see photos. They keys are all working and in good condition.

I replaced the memory battery a few years ago and restored the factory presets. All keys working. All buttons working but sometimes you do need to press them firmly. I have never used the sequencer, but there are some stored tracks that play.

Selling now as I no longer use it. Flight case is in good condition with some knocks as you would expect. The catches and handles are a bit corroded but all in working condition.”

“This Korg M1 Keyboard was used by Dominic Glynn to create the soundtrack to the Doctor Who TV story Survival.

It was the final story in the classic Doctor Who series from 1989 starring Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred.

Many of the distinctive sounds from Survival were made using this M1.

The keyboard is in perfect working order, having been newly serviced, but has the scratches you may expect from a well-loved synth from the late 80s.

It comes with a letter of authentication signed by Dominic Glynn. If requested, Dominic will also sign the keyboard.

User manual and documentation included.”

“Old and well used but still functioning. I recently replaced the lithium battery and re-installed the original factory setting – prog and combi sounds. Some of the buttons are a little sticky especially the sequencer functions and may need replacing if you want to use the keyboard as a step sequencer. One line in the digital screen remains stubbornly blank (I don’t know how to fix this!) – see 5th photo.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Cosmetically it is in excellent condition, no scratches or scrapes, never gigged. I’ve had this keyboard for close to 30 years, but simply don’t use it these days.

Needs a service, battery now flat! I have the lead to download the KORG sound files. Last time it was used it worked fine, although the display was a little dull. No sticky keys. Joystick works as should. I have a manual somewhere and if I can find it, I’ll include in auction. Also an additional Korg Sound Card.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
