New Korg MS-20 Mini

''arriving February''

I just found on another page, with analog Korg stuff but also the R3 so they may mean VA not RA.. The grill maybe for valve force rather than RA cooling. Can't wait ;-)

MS-20 monophonic synthesizer MINI 37 Mini Keys

arriving
April







And another from the same site...

New Korg MS-20

Can anyone confirm the new MS20 has VCO's? And not DCO's?

From sweetwater:

http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MS20mini

Back and smaller than ever, Korg's MS-20 mini analog synthesizer revives the ... with the same analog oscillators (now digitally stabilized), first-generation filters, and a ... Number of Digital Outputs, No digital I/O ...

Digitally stabilized oscillators refers to DCO's if I'm not mistaken.

It's interesting that they say that. In the Sonic State video from NAMM the Korg guy says the only digital part is MIDI and USB, and everything else is identical. (not including size, of course.)

Neither, it's clearly a fake plastic case built around an iPad mini running iMS-20.

FWIW, the Korg specs on their site say VCOs.

I hope it's referring to an auto-tune circuit and not DCOs--not that there's anything wrong with DCOs.

they used auto-tune in the monotribe. It's probably the same in this.

If it says VCOs on the Korg site, I'd say they are VCOs.

I'm not sure were the confusion or disbelief is coming from on the new MS20's VCOs.
I don't recall this question being raised when arturia announced the minibrute.

Considering how great this synth sounds I'd definitely say they are WTFCO's.

I know I don't!

(the "C" is for "Cares" in case it isn't obvious)

That's pretty effin' nifty, but it would be like an eggy broccoli fart to the analog purist.

Monotribe sounds great. I wouldn't worry, the MiniMS20 will sound great too.

Like it, like it, like it.

All synths on the planet use WTFC Oscillators. Full stop. Some sound bad, some sound good. Full stop & end of story.

Original Korg MS20 owners: Thoughts on MS20 Mini...

Will you keep your original whilst its still worth something? Or sell it for a new MS20 mini? Thoughts?
