Author's Note

The 01 portion of the Cliff Canyon website was created in 1998 for two reasons: to learn how to build a website, and to document what I learned about my new 01/W. The website also served to promote my first book, the self-published  Korg 01/W Percussion Manual.

Unfortunately (for me), 1998 was also the year Korg discontinued the 01/W series. Although there were forty thousand 01/Ws out there, it (and my work) was considered obsolete. Lesson learned.

The site remains up as a resource. I seldom use my 01 these days so this site is seldom updated, but you may still find the contents useful.

Enjoy the site, and feel free to e-mail me your questions and comments.
