About this Web Site
The Korg01w-list Yahoo! Group is a discussion group for Korg 0-series synthesizers and related instruments (Korg 01/W FD, Korg 01/Wpro, Korg 01/WproX, 03R/W, X-series synths, etc). The current home of the group is at https://groups.io/g/korg01w-list. The current group operators Chinh Do and Fred (Chicago).
The group started life back in 1991 as Erno Tuomainen (firstname.lastname@example.org)’s Korget mailing list (email@example.com). Chinh Do inherited the list from Erno and migrated it to a UNIX majordomo mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org, 1993), a pair.com mailing list (email@example.com, 1996-1999), eGroups, and finally, Yahoo! Groups in 2000.
About Korg 0-Series Synthesizers
The Korg 01/W synthesizer/workstation series was introduced in 1991. The 01-series was meant to replace Korg’s legendary M1 and T series synths. The Korg 01/W was equipped with (Advanced Integrated) sound engine, 47 effects, 6 MB of samples ROM, WaveShaping, built-in sequencer, and 32-note polyphony. Many musicians still prefer the sounds of the 01/W over Korg’s newer synths such as the Triton.
The 0-series synths were composed of the following models:
- 01/W – Basic 61-key model.
- 01/Wfd – Same as the basic model, plus internal 3 1/4-inch floppy drive.
- 01/Wpro – Same as 01/Wfd, but with 76 keys and extra sampled Acoustic Piano.
- 01/WproX – Same as 01/Wpro but with 88 weighted keys.
- 01R/W – Rackmount version (no keys).
- 03R/W – Stripped down version of 01R/W. Smaller screen and smaller set of ROM samples. No WaveShaping, sequencer.
