Korg MS20 Kit Build Timelapse

April 4, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

I built the MS20 Kit – one of only 1,000 available. Be sure to check out our full review coming soon. Music: Intellijel Atlantis through Behringer X32 with Vintage Room freeze reverb for pads, stereo delay.

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.

The Korg MS-20 kit has a street price of about $1,400.

Billie Jean on a Qunexus

Kevin Wyman’s humble recreation of the music video

Moonwalking my fingers all over my new Keith McMillen Qunexus. Everything was programmed in Korg Gadget, except the lead. Gadget still doesn’t receive pitch bend or mod cc, so I used Sunrizer for the lead. Enjoy!

Korg DW-8000 demo

March 30, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Demo of the Korg DW-8000, Programmable Digital Waveform Synthesizer from 1985

Take Korg’s first digitally controlled analog synth hybrid (DW-6000) two steps higher and you get the more popular DW-8000. Sound is digitally generated from the DWGS (Digital Waveform Generator System) and has been doubled from 8 sampled digital waveforms to 16 simple analog to complex digital waveforms. The DW-8000 has 8 voice polyphony in two modes, or one monophonic mode with all eight voices stacked. The analog VCF resonant filter and VCA both have independent ADBSSR envelopes. Parameters can be altered in real time via a single programmable slider. There are 64 presets that can be reprogrammed by the user.

In comparison to the DW-6000, the DW-8000 expanded to 8 notes polyphony, 16 sampled waveforms, a velocity sensitive keyboard with programmable aftertouch, auto-bend, a simple arpeggiator and a digital delay unit. The Digital Delay was an astonishing goody for the time, offering up to 512ms delay, phasing, flanging, chorusing and other time effects. Both the Arpeggiator, Auto-Bend and Digital Delay make this synth an inspiring and great sounding machine to use for great 303 basslines, techno and house bass and synth sounds and more! The EX-8000 (pictured above) is a rackmount version of the DW-8000. Several 3rd-party developers offered expansion boards for the DW-8000 providing up to 1024 presets, layered sounds, keyboard splits and Sample+Hold for the LFO.
