Sorry for my lack of knowledge of this synth, but for someone who's in the market for a nord lead 2x and a Moog sub phatty, is this synth similar and/or better than one of the two mentioned to the point where i might need to consider choosing the MS-20 over one of the two?

Wow...looking at the I/O on the patchbay section the layout on the Korg de site...it look the same as my original.

Hopefully actually CV and its 1v/Oct!

Still no PWM...perhaps via MIDI?

I wonder if the ESP section will track audio better than the old one did?

Hopefully not those MicroKorg keys!

If it sounds good, and I believe Korg seems to understand what people love about their old stuff...this will be an incredible value what you get!

If anything reissues or for the most part closely inspired remakes like Voyagers, Acidlab Miami's, X0XB0X's have only increased the value of the originals judging from looking on EBay over the years...for a few months Electro-Harmonix original 16 Second Delays dropped in value but then rose again within a year. That's the only time I could thing of that prices went down. Talking cool vintage/analog stuff here.

Pick the ones that you like the sound of the most

I understand that, but would having one of the mentioned synths make the MS-20 almost redundant and vice versa?

No-one into synths is gonna confuse a Korg MS-20 with a Moog Sub Phatty. Haven't played the Nord Lead.

Nope, those are very different sounding synths. I personally haven't tried the Sub Phatty, but a MS20 doesn't sound like a Moog or a Nord! If this Mini-MS20 sounds like the original, this together with a Moog and a Nord will keep you busy for A LONG TIME!

I'm very excited about this! I've always wanted an MS20. I just hope its not mini-keys! Thats a deal breaker for me.

This is really killer news! I never thought that a company like Korg would actually produce a fully analogue 1:1 remake of a classic synth! Now waiting for Neumann, haha

EDIT: want!

i hope the keys aren't like the mini keys found on their other smaller keyboards. that (to me) is a deal breaker and a huge miss on their part. especially at that price point. i understand it is supposed to be full analog--which is awesome. but if you're doing a "reissue" please make the keys usable. the 1/8" cables i can live with. but not the mini keys.

Keep in mind, that most young musicians will still get very excited about this, because it may be their first analog, and what an analog to get! Kind of like losing your virginity to J-Lo. She might be old, but she's still hot, and no straight man would toss her out of bed.

I am SO EXCITED about this synth!

I have several nice synths and love them all, but I would choose the Nord over a Korg or a Moog phatty, if I could only have one. A Nord will give you more options and can get dirty as hell. Keep in mind, that you will still want them all, inevitably.

Don't get me wrong, all of the synths in question are amazing in their own right.

I think the 200 units limited edition is a BS - I mean Korg would be the dumbest company putting so much R&D into a product and than just limiting it to 200 if they could sell hundreds times more. Especially if they put such an attractive pricepoint - its clearly mass oriented. Which is good for all of us, clients. Guys at Moog must be sweating right now...

I can confirm from serious sources that the 200 limited run is BS.

Seriously, many of us will get two if the sound is authentic.

Doesn't Kenton make something that would allow one to polychain these?

If it sounds like the original I'm in.

Hopefully it's not too wide so I can hack the keyboard off and rackmount it.

I'm so happy to see more and more analog. I would love to see the marriage of ipad control, with fully analog sound. Someday someone will make an analog synth-dock that blows minds. I will pick up this synth for sure, I was about to get a monotribe with midi kit, but now...
