MS-20 mini:…

Background description (Googlish from Japanese):

MS-20 mini engineer who was involved in the development of MS-20 in 1978, has served as a supervisor complete responsibility again after a time of 35 years. Behind the full reprint this is accomplished, the thoughts and various engineers, strong commitment had been present in large numbers.
In this video, we will deliver a state of the interview to the name of the 2, which is the central figure in the development of MS-20 · MS-20 mini there.

KORG MS20 Beat Distortio & Filter Overdrive

March 11, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

KORG MS20 SN#141344 with original IC35 Filter Chip is extremely sensible at input distortion; it can produce really wild sounds when both VCOs are driven high in the Mixer (especially with a lot of Peak on both HPF and LPF). On this video, the MIAMI Drum Machine is severely distorted with Electro Harmonix MetalMuff. Just for fun, just for shaking neighborhood. :-)

KORG MS-20 with IC35 under Doepfer Dark Time Step Sequencer Control; with a little effort, is it possible to set VCOs under exponential control from sequencer; the difference between Doepfer Gate and KORG Trig can be overriden – in a very rough way – narrowing at maximum the Doepfer Gate Pulse Width. On this video, some experiments with CV/Gate control on Pitch, on Cutoff, on re-triggering of envelope.

Eye candy: MS-20 Mini — The Legend Reborn

February 5, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Take a look at the new MS-20 Mini! Overseen by the engineers who brought us the original MS-20 back in 1978, MS-20 Mini features the exact true-analog signal path. The incredibly powerful dual filters with peak/resonance, CV functionality, external signal processing, and unique hands-on patching system are all here – with 5-pin and USB MIDI to boot — and all at 86% of the original size.

Connecting the MS-20 Mini to your Modular systems

January 30, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 


Modular synth manufacturer The Harvestman has announced a new module that’s designed to make it easy to connect the new Korg MS-20 Mini to modular synthesizers.

Here’s the official announcement:

I announce with great satisfaction ENGLISH TEAR, the first in a line of small utility modules.

This module features the expected “voltage processor” attenuverter and big offset knobs, but also includes a full set of functions for interfacing to an MS-20. Easy conversion from exponential volt-per-octave to linear hertz-per-volt and back, as well as V-trigger to S-trigger conversion. Jack normalling fixes the voltage processors to these converter circuits, so you may scale the input voltages as desired. The log/expo converter circuits also have many other uses in your modular system beyond the conversion of pitched voltages.

Pricing and availability are to be determined.

Korg MS-20 Mini demo by Rich Formidoni at NAMM 2013

January 29, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Korg product manager Rich Formidoni demonstrates the new Korg MS-20 mini Monophonic Synthesizer at the 2013 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, CA.

The same engineers who developed the original MS-20 have reproduced its circuitry and fit into a body that’s been shrunk to 86% of the original size, yet retains the distinctive look of the original.


  • Overseen by the engineers of the original MS-20, a complete replication of the original analog circuitry
  • 2VCO / 2VCA / 2VCF / 2EG / 1LFO structure
  • Self-oscillating high-pass/low-pass filters with distinctive distortion
  • External signal processor (ESP)
  • Extremely flexible patching system
  • Miniature MS-20 that’s 86% of the original size
  • MIDI IN and USB connector
  • Replicates every detail of the original, down to the package binding and the included manual

The Korg MS-20 Mini will be available April 2013 for a U.S. Street price of $599.00.
