In 1988 Korg released the M1. It featured a combination of synthesis, digital effects, drums and an onboard sequencer. Production of the M1 ceased in 1995 at which point it was the best-selling synthesizer of all time. Today, the heritage of the Korg M1 lives on in Korg's software synths, iOS apps and free expansions for the Krome Workstation.
In recognition of its 30th anniversary, May 1 is designated as M1 day, triggering the start of Korg's celebrations. Korg is offering a limited-time 50% off sale for the Korg Collection - M1 and Korg iM1 for iPad.
