Product Description


Founded originally as Keio Gijutsu Kenkyujo in 1962, KORG has become a legendary name for synthesizers, rhythm machines and keyboards. The developers of Japan's first synthesizer has created instruments that inspire musicians through the generations. Korg strives to continue to innovate and create high quality instruments that inspire professionals and newcomers alike.

Korg’s MS-20 monophonic synthesizer, first introduced in 1978, is still a coveted instrument to this day, thanks to its thick, robust sound, its powerful, iconic analog filter, and its versatile patching options. Over 300,000 people have enjoyed the distinct MS-20 sounds from the original, from Korg’s MS-20 plug-in synth, and the iMS-20 iPad app.

Today, the sounds of the MS-20 have been reborn as the MS-20 Mini. The same engineers who developed the original MS-20 have perfectly reproduced its circuitry and fitted it into a body that’s been shrunk to 86% of the original size, yet retains the distinctive look of the original that remains unfaded despite the passage of time.

The MS-20 patch book created for all current hardware re-issues of the MS20. Unlike the original patch book created in the 1970’s, this collection is aimed at more modern music genres demonstrating the MS-20’s continuing desirability over 36 years later. The patches are derived from the KORG iOS application iMS-20 giving a nice graphical view of the MS-20 panel thus making it easier to set up these great sounds. The MS-20 mini will amaze you with its absolutely authentic analog synth sound.
