It is a comparison of the sound of the MS-20 mini and MS-20.
Can you find the difference in sound??
Here is a demo Jordan Passmore created with the Korg Electribe EM-1, Casio MT-40, Novation Drumstation, and Zoom SampleTrak ST-224. The EM-1 is doing the sequencing + bass/short stab sound + some percussion, the Casio is doing the square-wave lead tones, the Novation is doing the 909/808ish sounds and the SampleTrak is simply effecting the Casio with it’s effects section (I will do a more exhaustive demo of the SampleTrak soon). The Casio is also being ran through a stereo analog chorus and analog delay. There is some compression done with a Roland MMP-2 on the master channel. The entire segment was mixed on a Tascam M-1600 mixing desk.

I will be your only reported sightings of the actual time being this time.
In the event that was held at Shibuya April 18 2013 KORG New Products Showcase Live, new models of analog rhythm machine Korg topic “volca beats” (part PCM sound), analog synth-based “volca bass”, analog synth loop “volca key” became the first Japanese debut. Release is it I can not wait. I did not need only about 10 minutes if there are another matter coverage, but the appeal was transmitted enough. I tried to touch early – well (laughs)

Three true-analog synthesizers with built-in sequencers to generate the ultimate analog leads, basses, and rhythms
Following in the footsteps of the monotron, monotribe, and MS-20 Mini analog synthesizers, Korg announces the Volca series. volca is a new lineup of EDM production tools comprised of three distinct models: the Volca Keys lead synthesizer, the volca Bass synthesizer, and the Volca Beats rhythm machine. These powerful and fun-to-use true-analog devices deliver a diverse array of fat sounds that can be obtained only from an analog synthesizer. Each is also equipped with sequencing/recording capabilities for intuitively generating performances. Multiple volcas can be used in tandem via the vintage-style sync in/out, and with your favorite DAW software or MIDI keyboard via MIDI In. Battery operation and built-in speakers mean that you can conveniently play anywhere and anytime. These are the next-generation analog synthesizers, bringing you the ultimate sounds and grooves with ease and depth. Whether used together or by themselves, the volca series is poised to inject true analog power into any performance or studio setup!

Mitchell Sigman compares the King Korg’s modeled Prophet-5, Oberheim SEM and Moog filters to the real instruments. Opening sound montage created with King Korg. Watch for the full King Korg review in the June 2013 issue of Keyboard!
Here is the introduction to a series of videos which demonstrate the sound and functionality of the new Korg MS-20 Mini. All non-drum sounds in the theme were created by the MS-20 Mini. Doty’s series covers the MS-20 Mini’s oscillators, filters, envelope generators, amplifiers, sample & hold, external signal processor, patch examples and more.
In this video, Rich Formidoni takes you through the various types of oscillators that are the basic foundation of KingKORG’s sound.

Sonic had the chance to speak to Mr Fumio Mieda – one of the creators of the MS20 and the MS20 Mini.
And here is a second one uploaded by KORG themselves:
Original Korg MS-20 developers Mr. Fumio Mieda and Mr. Hiroaki Nishijima recently sat down to reminisce about developing the legendary analog MS-20 and resureccting that classic synth 35 years later in the form of the new MS-20 Mini.

Home-made synth + modified Korg Monotron, both synced by Syncuino (http://chemiker1981.blogspot.com/)
Korg Volca Beats – Sound impression recorded directly from the output. I don’t know if this is only with THIS model at Messe but the volume was really low. In the video the volume was raised by 6.4dB, no other mastering or FX took place.
Korg Volca Bass – Direct Sound Recording – Sound impression not mastered or FXed.
