Turning your Korg M3R into a Korg M1

The Korg M1 is a synthesizer and music workstation manufactured by Korg from 1988 to 1995. The M1 was advertised as a ‘workstation’ rather than a synthesizer, integrating composition and performance features into a single device. It features 16-voice polyphony, high-quality digital samples (including drum sounds), an integrated 8-track sequencer and digital effects processing.

Released after the Korg M1, the Korg M3R is a stripped-down budget version of Korg’s most popular synthesizer at the time. It uses the same AI synthesis data, but the patch structure is different.
Besides the fact it is a rack module it also doesn´t offer the sequencer.

The original sounds of the M1 are used in many songs and with this download you can have those legendary sounds at your fingertips with your M3R.
Check out the video I made to get an impression of the sounds. And yes…those sounds are incredible!
