HOLY AWESOME!!! I WANT ONE!!! I hope that if Korg hasn't already made it possible to use this as a controller to directly edit the VST version of this synth as well, that they eventually will. Even if they don't, I'll still buy one. I've wanted something like this for a long time. Although I gave up on hardware synths years ago, this one belongs in my studio.

This is getting purchased. This is not even a discussion. This is like the Minibrute of 2013, only even better.

I hope the keys feel ok...

$599? Holy cow! I really hope that means the sound lives up to the original.

Korg just keeps putting out more & more toys. How many MS20 apps, soft synths and hardware toys can one have? Have people shrunk 14% in the last 20 years that they made the keyboard that much smaller? Stop making toys and get back into professional instruments for professional musicians. Just another toy for the kiddies that have Minibrutes.

GTRMan, go troll somewhere else. If you can't make music with one of these perhaps you are on the wrong site.

And the Minibrute is a great little, inexpensive instrument that feels reasonably solid and good to play. The other manufacturers had to respond to it, I think. Moog's new synth is very good, and this is going to be incredible. As long as it feels good to play. The new Microkorgs are okay to play on. The length of the keys on this look to be even better than that, and it's a newly designed keyboard. I'm getting one regardless...

GTRman you are correct, what has happened to the musical instrument industry. Everything is designed like a toy anymore. What ever happened to real full size expressive instruments? 86% what is that about? The MS20 is like beating a dead horse, give me something new and innovative.

Hooray! Next they should re-release the Korg SQ 10. haha. Just because it's shrunk doesn't mean it's a toy. Not everyone can afford $2000+ workstation or needs one. I rather Korg put out these "smaller" hardware than soft synths. To each their own.

The Korg MS-20 is my favourite of all the analog synths in Spectrasonics Trilian.

Get used to it: we'll be seeing this thing re-released in every conceivable, minutely-differing iteration over the next few years (perhaps the next version will be suffixed by a "+")

Already went to change my pants and inmediatley pre-ordered it on Sweetwater!

MS-20 has always been a dream keyboard of mine. Always loved the sound in all recording, albums and demoes of it. Had the Korg DS-10 (nintendo ds emulation) and it was mental. Cant wait to get the real thing.

Holy crap, they actually made it. Well done Korg, I'm so there!!!

Sean    Said...

They had me until the "the newly-designed keyboard is 86% of the original size". WHY? WHY GOD? WHY!!!!!!

Peter K.    Said...

Yeah but it's $599.00!!!!

I WANT ONE I WANT ONE I WANT ONE! One question, is the CV still Hz/V or did they change it to V/octave? Not a deal breaker, just a point of curiosity.
