Korg MS-1 MicroSampler

The Korg MicroSampler keyboard is a compact yet powerful mini keyboard. It features advanced sampling capabilities via the line input or XLR input to connect any microphone of your choosing. It is equipped with 37 mini keys to trigger or play samples, 21 onboard effects, a pattern sequencer, time-stretching capability and variable sample rates, allowing you to go from a crystal clear signal to a dirty lo-fi sound at the push of a button. It also comes with library/sample editor software so you can manage all your sounds and back up files via USB. 

Both line input and mic input are provided to allow a broad range of input sources including electronic musical instruments, CD, and voice. This particular model even features its original goose neck microphone. The MicroSampler can also run on 6 x AA batteries, so you can perform on the go - or capture samples anywhere. In addition, there's a resampling function that lets you play existing layered samples processed by an effect and played by the loop sequencer — and capture it all as a new sample.

When sampling, you can select One Shot, Gate, or Loop methods; this greatly enhances the realtime character of your performance. In addition, you can use two completely new sampling methods "Key Gate" and "Auto Next" to sample more efficiently and creatively than ever.

Developed for Korg's KAOSS PAD series, the effect engine serves up a great selection of effects. The 21 effects include not only traditional delay and chorus, but also ring modulator and grain shifter, and even a Looper that's derived from the Loop Recording feature of the KAOSSILATOR Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer.

This particular unit is in great condition - all the keys have a great springy response, all knobs, buttons and functions have been tested and are working well. The unit has been dismantled and serviced, with all contacts, switches and sockets being cleaned. Please note this unit is 100V AC.Specifications:
