According to this article on the making of Goldie's *Timeless* album from the [June 1998 issue of *Sound on Sound* magazine](https://web.archive.org/web/20150416233330/http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jun98/articles/goldie.html), Playford's studio gear includes an 01/W synth.more
This is one of those old school 90's Korg synths. Successor of the Wavestation. It's made of aluminum so it's very heavy. That's not good news for any gigging keyboardist's back but fortunately for me I just keep it in the studio for recording purposes. It has some lovely sounds. Many of them are quite dated but have lots of character. I use it mostly as a midi controller with software on my studio PC.
One of my favorite. Strings, guitars and basses are great. I used a lot like a strings emulation and his pianos still very beautiful. Lot of synth sparkling pads and effects. Very beautiful.
Foi meu segundo synth da Korg. Tinha timbres magníficos para a época, principalmente os órgãos e os synths. Era o number one no meu setup; robusto, tinha uma sonzeira no PA, rivalizando sem esforço com qualquer guitarra, soava de igual-para-igual.
So nice to hear many sounds used by Vangelis, Enigma and others in early/mid 1990's. The sound is warmer because of the sampling rate which is 32 kHz (if memory serves) instead of 44.1 or 48.
Even though nowadays I am using this keyboard only indoors as a midi controller, I am still surprised about some of the internal sounds. This is a great instrument. It's built sturdy, the keys have a nice feel to it and it's reliable. I am thinking of adding this one to my live gear someday as a backup keyboard.
One of the most durable keyboards you can get. The sound is great, very real but don't look for creative sounds, look for traditional non filtered sounds. You can get creative, but use it as a center of you estudio, is great
