Book Cover Title and Subtitle

“What your owner’s manual should have told you… but didn’t!”


Welcome to the Korg 01/W wing of the Cliff Canyon web site. This 01 section has two purposes: to provide an on-line information resource, and to promote a book. The on-line resource is intended to supplement the book. It was built based on questions that show up on the web, or that are sent to the book’s author. If there is a topic you’d like covered, please e-mail questions or comments to the author.

Thanks for coming!

    About the Book


    Front cover Back cover

    A “How-To” reference for owners of the Korg model 01/W music synthesizer that covers more than just drums. Organized much like the 01/W itself, the manual starts with the basic Drum Sounds, works them into Programs, then Programs into Combinations. Drum Kits are shown on keyboard drawings. Heavily illustrated with more than 40 tables, 25 figures, block diagrams, and worksheets. Includes appendix, glossary, references and index. This book:

    Note: Web sites come and go, but a book lasts a lifetime. We believe this is the only book still available on the 01 and it will not be reprinted after all the current copies are sold.
