Get the iconic sound of the 90's dance music scene with this free Korg M1 Piano EXS24 instrument to use in your tracks.
The Korg M1 synthesizer workstation became THE synth to have in many professional studios and for live performers alike. Its combination of digital sampled PCM and synthesized waveforms meant that the M1 could produce and reproduce a plethora of sounds and musical instruments with relative ease, ranging from acoustic sounds to lead synths!
The M1 also boasted an 8 track sequencer with full MIDI implementation and a wealth of digital multi-effects for generating song ideas. In addition to this later models also included ROM slots to load additional sounds, plus a rack version less the keyboard is also available.
These features still make the M1 an attractive addition to any studio setup

Here is what www.failedmuso.com say about the origins of the files shared here:
" A long time ago, a cohort on the KvR forum, a guy from Norwich by the name of Kriminal, sampled his M1 keyboard and made the piano patch available as a soundfont, I believe. Being an avid Akai user, I asked him if I could convert to the Akai S5/6000 and Z Series formats, to which he agreed. Those are still available here:
Today, Nick at SonicState.com put out a call for the M1 piano sound and he has converted them to EXS24 format and shared them accordingly:"
