Korg MS-20 Synth Kit – a limited edition MS-20 Kit is a kit that lets you create a real, full-size MS-20 by assembling the parts yourself.

The MS-20 Kit is a true-analog, 1:1 scale reissue of the MS-20, with both filters built in (the more aggressive early production filter and more mellow late production one). Every details has been replicated, right down to the packaging, which includes a letter from the original MS-20 engineers and the President of Korg, Inc.

Just like the MS-20 mini, development of the MS-20 Kit was led by the original engineers themselves, who spared no effort to perfectly replicate the circuitry of the original unit. When it was necessary to substitute a part, the engineers made the decision based on their own ears, ensuring that the exact sound of the original unit has been reproduced.  According to Korg, the sound of the MS-20 kit has a ‘somewhat bright and extreme quality’ to it, because its sound is that of an original MS-20 in mint condition at the time it went on sale, before any of the components aged.

The MS-20 Kit comes dissembled, and can be put together with simple tools (some included), providing the user with a bit of the experience that often went hand-in-hand with ownership of vintage modular analog gear.

No soldering or understanding of circuit diagrams required. The updated MS-20 also features the same modern connectivity (MIDI and USB MIDI) as the mini.

The MS-20 Kit is a being released as a limited edition product.

Features:

  • A full-size, true analog MS-20
  • Build yourself with simple tools
  • Early and late filters at the flip of an internal switch
  • ¼” patch cables
  • Limited edition

The Korg MS-20 kit is expected to have a street price of about $1,400 and to be available in March.

Korg Electribe ER-1 Drum Machine as a MIDI Sequencer

January 21, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This machine, normally associated with beats, can transmit MIDI notes from each of the drum triggers. I tuned the first seven triggers to the Eb scale, with the further three notes on the lower octave.

The accent control functions in the same way, allowing you to vary it`s relative level.

Second half of the video has the synth output going into the ER-1, allowing the use of `Motion Sequence` and `Tempo Delay` effects.

Korg PolySix Sound Banks

January 12, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

2 Complete new sound-banks for Korg PolySix.

The PolySix is a classic and Korg did a great job of porting it to the PolySix software version.
The PolySix stands as one of the most authentic hardware
emulations ever made which so many recent synths attempt to emulate.
The presets heard in this video are from the new collection called, “Cold Fusion”.

These presets are designed to bring out the classic hardware sound from the original Korg PolySix.
Included in this collection are:

Classic style Apegs
Extremely Fat basses
Vintage and very warm pads.
Unique synth FX reminiscent of the electronic period that the PolySix was released in.
Leads
More

The Korg PolySix software version is one of those, “best kept secrets”.
This is partly due to the fact that it was initially released with so few presets.
VintageSynthPads.com has released this collection with the original Korg PolySix hardware in mind.
The presets are very analog, warm and fat, not to mention affordable.
Be sure to check them out.

Syncing Volca Beats and Kilpatrick Modular and Buchla

December 22, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Quick demonstration of a few ways to sync the Volca Beats to my modular:
1. Using arpeggio notes of the Korg Microstation to trigger the Volca Beats (trigger in) via a midi to cv convertor (Kilpatrick in this case)
2. Midi clock in the Volca Beats (midi through on the Kilpatrick)
3. Using trigger out of the sequencer (clock out works also)
