I imagine that it is an ms 20 trait & totally normal.Not a worry or a bother but i have just never known it in other synths.
This is how the original responds as well. I don't know why, but it's totally normal.

Yeah, i figured. I didn't see it as an issue or a problem. Just wasn't expecting it.

Synth Secrets, Part 18: Priorities & Triggers

Wouldn't that be by (common) design?

I have no doubt that it's by design. If it's a common design, I wouldn't know. I only own 2 mono analogs and the other (SH-101) doesn't do that. You can play up or down from the previous note on the 101. Maybe it's the 101 that has an uncommon design in that regard. I wouldn't know, I just play the synths haha.

Anybody got any suggestions on some cheap outboard FX? I am really only looking for reverb and delay, as the ms20 provides its own distortion.

note priority is a common trait on vintage mono synths.. moog have lower note priority, korg had higher.. roland went both ways..

I believe moog gives you the option to choose.

What are the keyboard control switches on it used for? I could have sworn those allow you to choose.

Not that I see on mine. Perhaps on the remakes?

EHX Deluxe Memory Boy. Even the regular Memory Boy would probably do the job just fine. Keep an eye on eBay, people let these go relatively cheaply from time to time.

In classic GC fashion mine had no idea. However they took my name and number down and I'm first in line for when the arrive. Hopefully my preorder with American Musical comes through first - payment plans are nice.

anyone hooked up their MS20 mini to an iPad by usb yet?

I downloaded the manual from korg (mine still on its way somewhere) and it does say that you need to install drivers on a computer to use USB midi in/out. which suggests it just wouldn't speak to the iPad without drivers.

this would be a shame as I was hoping to use Little Midi Machine with it and you need midi out to send messages to transpose the sequencer.

I think it would work with an iRig MIDI, or the Line 6 one, maybe.

That would use the MIDI in on the korg though, not USB.

Im really liking it. My friend also showed me a new delay pedal that emulates tape errors, but I forget the name.

Just tested this for you and it work with the Ipad.
I am using the camera connection kit with the mini ms20 plugged directly in the Ipad via USB and i can sequence the Mini ms20 with cubase and i can control the ims20 apps with the ... real thing

Awesome that's fantastic news!! Thanks so much for testing it out for me! So you didn't even need a powered USB hub in between? That's unusual. Anyway I can see I'm going to really appreciate the midi additions to the mini!

No, the notes are all you need, sequencer sends pattern to korg, korg sends single notes to the sequencer which then transposes the pattern accordingly. Nothing but note control needed.

Like this video of ms20 mini with a Doepfer dark time sequencer.

I've not been following this thread as it got too long(!!) so I'm not sure if this YouTube link has ever been posted here in the previous pages (apologies if its already posted!). There's a shot in this video that shows the performer using the iPad to trigger his MS20 mini.
Check it out:


Or try this direct link, if the above doesn't work!

I completely forgot there was an iPad in that video, thanks for the reminder!

But it is nice to know from a real person that it works, and that it's easy! I was worried that, as with so many things, there'd be a catch - such as the lack of drivers in the iPad... But fortunately it looks like it "just works"

No problem
Of course the Mini ms20 is not usb powered but everything works fine and you only need the camera connection kit and a usb cable. Only note on / off are transmitted (no velocity or knobs)
So the Mini ms20 + an Ipad is a cool combination. You can sequence your ms20 or you can use the keyboard on the ms20 to control any softsynth on the Ipad. Midi channel seems to be locked on channel one.
I have been processing stuff from the Ipad inside the Ms20 filters and env. follower etc. An exciting time we live really.

SO F***ING COOL!!!

Flip the ms into a bag take it to a gig, got your sequencer and effects rack in the iPad, you're set! It's even lighter than the original! Less back breaking and desk snapping!
