Korg iSeries KISS&KIPS Disk Library (3.5" floppy disk)

Postby 2goth4u » Mon Jul 07, 2014 8:47 pm

Hello,

Several years back, my friend and I went to a music store that was closing to seek out deals. I came across four binders of Korg floppy disks. The table of contents says that these floppy disks are from the Korg iSeries, as a part of the KISS Series (not KISS the band haha). Anyway, I do not know anything about them. I believe they may be synth patches, but am unsure. There are also some disks for the X-Series workstation, the 01/W Killer Organ disk, disks with drum patterns, IBM and Macintosh Drivers, and several other random disks. Furthermore, they had originally been listed for almost $1000 CAD per binder, which leads me to believe that they may have retained SOME value. I was wondering if anyone on the VSE forum had any insight as to what they are used for, and how much they may actually be worth today, as I do plan on selling them.

Thanks!

I'm not familiar with these but I would definitely test them out before selling them. A lot of old floppy disks have been erased by now due to magnetic fields... I know most of my old Mac 3.5s are unreadable now...

Thanks for the reply synthparts. That's a really good point, and something that I had not considered. What would be the best method? I know that there are 3.5" to usb readers available now, but I want to try to spend as little as possible. I feel like I would be hard pressed to find a PC or Mac with a floppy drive in it these days, but I guess I will have to keep a look out.
