01/W Site Kudos

rev: 03May19

Note: This page is not intended for general viewing. Readers of this page should be here only by special request.

I originally created the 01 web site for two reasons:
1. to learn about HTML and making a web site, and
2. to organize what I learned about my instrument so I could find it when I wanted it.

I never actively promoted the site, so I was surprised and pleased to get the occasional e-mail expressing positive sentiments about the site. Since the only compensation I get from my work are these remarks, I have gathered them here for those days when a little inspiration would be nice.

This site won't mean much to those who don't have a Korg 01/W synthesizer, but if you'd like to visit the site these comments are about, click here to go to the 01 On-Line Manual.

Wow!  …your site is INCREDIBLE!
Trust me, it is by _far_ the most useful Korg 01w site on the web! :)

WONDERFUL!  I have put the address under my "favorites".

Congratulations. What a wonderfully well written and informative site. Outstanding!

… thanks for that great web site. …without your site, I don't know what I would have done.

I'm a regular visitor to your 01 site(s) and I sincerely feel that congratulations are in order. Your pages make any, repeat, any other "synth help" pages pale into insignificance

Thanks for the website,  it's nicely done and informative..!

thank you for a wonderful resource on the internet.

Hey, Ken!
I love this site!!! I've been trying to piece together an 01w site, but I think yours covers everything. Anyway, keep up the good work.

Quite an impressive site!

Ken, your page is great!

I don’t know if you’re still active with the 01/W-site, but I think you did a great job. I’ve been playing the Pro-X for almost 10 years now, but only recently discovered your site. My compliments. It has definetely broadened my mind.

Hi Ken,
Thanks for the great information about the effects section.
Although I've had my 01 for a long time, I have always been fuzzy about how the whole thing works.

Many thanks for posting the list of O1wfd sounds.

Dear Ken:
May I ask a question??  Have you ever worked with blind people before? Because if you haven't, you are really good at explaining things. ...  I have sent off for information about how to get a braille manual, but you were so good, that maybe I don't need one of those after all!

Date: Wed, 27 May 1998 11:32:02 -0400
Hi Ken,
I looked at the web page... it looks good to me. I am sure a lot of 01 owners will find this info useful.
When you have time please let the rest of the people on the list know about your web site. Thanks

Thanks for your website.

Just discovered your page. Congratulations. Just by reading some of the stuff on your page I learnt more that reading the incomprehensible Korg Manual which came with my 01/WFD.

Date: Thu, 28 Jan 1999 15:34:15 -0500
I happen to own Kens Book, and have a three inch hardcopy stack of the other Korg 01/W topics, from his Web Site. The book is well worth buying, between the book and the Web site it would clear up a lot of confusion.

Ken, you're the hero of the day. You may sleep well tonight, knowing that your generous assistance saved some numbskull the time, money and embarassment of taking a functional keyboard in for repairs. May good fortune fall upon you in excess.  I owe you another one.
Many thanks.

Hi Ken-
Just a quick update...  I replaced my disk drive on my 01W this weekend. Basically followed your website's recommendation... I can't thank you enough for gathering all of that info on the website.  It saved me $100's.  Thanks.

Date: Wed, 31 May 2000 00:20:44 -0700
I just discovered your 01/w site - it's wonderful!  It's quite rare to find sites on the 01/w at all; to find one so comprehensive and lucid is truly a blessing.  Thanks!

Date: Thu, 26 Oct 2000 17:00:31 +1000

First of all, thanks for your page, I ve found so much useful information)) ...  your page just opened my eyes)))))

Date: Tue, 31 Oct 2000 21:54:09 +0000 (GMT)
I stumbled on your site on the web while searching for some pricing info on the 01/Wfd.  I must say I am quite impressed with the amount of information.

Date: Thu, 16 Nov 2000 16:58:46 EST
I just want to say thanks. Keep up the good work because it helps guys like me. I pray your site will always be there in the future as I begin exploring my new 01/W pro.
Thanks again!

Hi Andrew (and group),
I hope Ken W. doesn't mind me revealing an excellent tip from his book to answer this question.  (This tip is one of many you can find in his book _Korg 01/W Percussion Manual_ and I highly recommend buying it while you still can.) ...
(check out Ken's wonderful page on the 01/W at http://net.indra.com/~cliffcan/01online.htm )

Dear Ken,
Firstly I must congratulate you on a very in depth and informative site.
Many thanks

Hi Ken,
I did visit the website, long enough to be impressed by the fact that it actually is loaded with useful information, unlike the majority of websites.

A bookmark to your website has been added to my short list of meat-and-potatoes sites. The effort you've made is appreciated by those of us who lack the discipline it must take to collect so great a volume of useful tidbits, categorize, distill and apply them to the written page.

Then, to send it out into the world, never knowing how your gift will be received. That's gotta take guts.

You are making your mark on the world, and your efforts are appreciated.

I will close quickly before the urge to ask something like "where can I get a Xeroxed copy of your books?" overcomes me and I wind up blurting it right out. Oops.
Best Regards

Hi there,
I just found your website, and wow!
That's a lot of work and I offer (belated) appreciation. I still own an O1R/W and use it all the time in my work as a TV and film composer.

This is a great site.

Hello Ken:
I recently purchased a 01/W Pro X for my father. It did not come with a manual and your site has been a god send. As you know, Korg no longer supports the 01/W, not even manuals which is easy money for them.

Date: Fri, 9 Mar 2001 00:50:43 GMT
Hopefully you have no intentions of removing this page now that i have found it!!! It's brilliant. If you are going to remove it, or something untoward happens to it, please consider letting me have an off line copy.
Thanks a million

You have made this music loving, non-musically talented pastor a hero among the musicians in my church. I followed the procedure you outlined; found the MIDI Channel setting to be “02” instead of the “01” you indicated was correct. After changing it, everything works fine. My thanks for your help. If you ever need a prayer or a sermon, maybe I can help back.
Thanks again.

The indra site is aweseom;

-- In korg01w-list@yahoogroups.com:
Yes, it is!!! Go to this web page for more complete info:  http://net.indra.com/~cliffcan/01fdd1.htm
 In fact, put the home page in your Favorites folder and take the time to study all the pages (and there are lots of them) -- it will be your very best friend as you learn about your 01Wfd:
 This is the 01W "Bible", next to the hard-to-find-now user manual, for every seasoned user of this list.
