Korg M1 Programing

Postby toddd » Thu Aug 20, 2009 2:12 pm

Looking at a Korg M1 for a mate at the moment, i remember having to learn how to program the patches at school, but its pretty much slipped from my brain now.

Any opinions? i know they are kind of a classic..

I specifically wanted to know whether anyone has heard, or dialled up a useable wurly/organ/hammond/rhodes sound on one before?

cheers, todd.

Todd,
Our keybaord player in my band uses an M1 in conjunction with a Korg external sound module (not sure what model though) - he currently uses the external module for his Hammond/organ sounds.
However, he's just bought the new BX-3 (which will be unveiled at our next rehearsal) ;-}
I can ask him about M1 patches if you like..
Tim..

There should be heaps of resources out there for the Korg M1

http://au.groups.yahoo.com/search?query=korg+m1

There is a Yahoo group just for M1 patches.
(You will have to join to get at the files)

Even here..

http://www.vintagesynth.com/korg/m1.php

There is a handful of banks for the M1. You will need a simple application for your computer (Midiox for PC) to upload the sysex files to your M1.

Thanks for posting that Mike - I'll let my keyboard player know about that also.
Do you happen to know if the patches work with the M1 plugin (Korg Digital Series) as well??

Hi there,

I've had a couple of M1's over the years and it was the sole keyboard i was using in a few bands...so there should be reasonable sounds on there.
Single program 41(47 ?) seems to ring a bell for a usable organ.

Cheers

Hey Todd, I'll call Shane today and ask him when I get a chance.. the manual is a good starting place though - I did see a copy online at one of the aboveposted links..
Our keyboard player called me last night to say he had just picked up his new Korg BX-3 - so all organ and hammond sounds will be from the BX-3..
M1 will be relegated to piano/strings/synth stuff now..

Aapparently its got every sound from Hammond since the 30's up until the late 70's.. A wide palette I'd say!!
Can t wait to hear this thing at next rehearsal!! Yeah baby!!

Looks like its can - see last paragraph here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korg_M1
