Korg MSC-14S Sound Effects
Sound Card Set for the Korg M1 series

Korg MSC-14S Sound Effects

The MSC-14S "Sound Effects" sound card set consists of the MPC-14 Program card, and the MSC-14 PCM card.  These two cards install in the slots of the Korg M1 series, adding several new waveforms and programs to the machine.

The MSC-14S Sound Effects card set focuses on sound effects for various uses.  The new waveforms include rain, animals, various toys, synth FX, metallic, and many more sound and special effects.

Perfect to add that "spice" to compositions, or to enhance video.

Check out audio examples from this card set here below.
