Commercial PCM Cards

Commercial PCM cards were made and sold by Korg and at least one other manufacturer. Korg no longer sells 01/W PCM cards.

Korg

(The sales descriptions were taken from a Korg flyer. A scan of this flyer is available from at
http://www.vienxu.com/korg0/files/XSC-CARDS.jpg,)

Korg sold six PCM Card Sets at a cost of $200 (US $) each. Cards could be used "with all 0-series products except 03R/W". As expressed in 1992 sales literature:

"Each two-card set in the XSC series of data cards gives you a PCM card which offers a huge volume of quality PCM data, plus a program/combination card containing 100 programs and 100 combinations, and demo sequences."

Dance
XSC-4S (XSC-804 + XPC-04)
"The XSC-4S PCM Card contains 16 multisounds such as SynthBass and SlapBass, which are essential for funk and dance music like House and Rap. This is a super set of multisounds and drum sounds for dance music!"

User comments
"If you want that TR-909 Bass kick, the two cards I know that have it are the 'Best of M & T' and the 'Dance'." (99Jan18):

 "I can say it's pretty cool! You get a TR-909 Kick, some cool acid snares, and some synth bass sounds. Overall, the card is good, but too few samples in it." (99Jan17)

Synth Design
XSC-5S (XSC-805 + XPC-05)
"This set presents a montage of synthesized sounds that will take you from analog synths through the latest techno-industrial sounds."

03R/W Cards
The 03 used the same PCM cards as the 01 (same card/part number). There were no PCM cards made just for the 03. Card sets came with an 01 PCM card and a companion 03 Prog/Combi card.

The 03 Prog/Combi cards are NOT compatible with the 01 (the 03 has different Sounds in ROM). One user said the 01 wouldn't even recognize an 03 Prog/Combi card when it was plugged in.

The following table is presented to help you identify 03 card/part numbers (03 stuff starts with a "U").

Wavestation Cards
Apparently, there are two versions of the Wavestation, original and WSSR. Cards for the original Wavestation will not work with the 01 or WSSR.

SAM-1 (by Zadok)
Apparently there is a rack-mount unit (19", 1U) that contains samples which can be played through the WS, M1, and T-series synths. A cable connects the SAM-1 to the PCM card slot. This is not compatible with the 01. For more info about the SAM-1, try:
http://machines.hyperreal.org/manufacturers/Zadok/SAM-1/info/SAM-1.info.

SYNTHLEGENDS (http://perso.wanadoo.fr/synthlegends/home.htm)

Sybaris Labs (http://www.sybarislabs.com/shop/)
An acoustic string modeled piano PCM card called 'The Way' costs $155+shipping from Turkey. (00Jun14)

InVision
I have little information about this company or their product(s). One user e-mail said:

"The InVision 'Acoustic' PCM card and associated floppy set includes exquisite multis of flute, solo violin, baritone horn, harp & marimba. The flue and violin are sampled with natural vibrato, multiple times for a very realistic effect. There's harp glissandos, rainstick and others.  The disk has 100 Programs and 100 associated Combis that fully utilize the new waves on the card. This set is sort of rare.  Works with 01, Wavestation, and X series synths with the PCM card slot." [00Jul27]
