Manufacturer's ID: MS20MINI

What we say:

At A Glance:

The MS-20 Mini from Korg is a detailed recreation of the classic MS-20 synthesizer from the late 70s. Coming in at 86% of the original size, the MS-20 Mini is ideal for the modern setup where space is limited. That doesn’t mean Korg have skimped on any of the features or circuitry however. It features a complete replication of the original circuitry, so you still have those rich analogue tones, modulation options and patching system on board.

Features We Love:

Classic MS-20 Sound

The MS-20 Mini has been faithfully recreated by the same team that worked on the original back in the 1970s. They have gone to great lengths to replicate the circuitry of the original unit, including detailed listening to the sound of any replacement parts that are no longer in production.

Extensive Patching System

The patch bay on the MS-20 Mini allows you to manipulate the sound of the unit, and bend it beyond your imagination. You can use the included patch cables to route different sections of the synth to one another. The signal flow guide on the front panel will help you to route effectively and create some unique and interesting sounds.

Compact and Portable

The MS-20 Mini comes in at 86% of the size of the original unit, and weighs just 4.8kg! This makes it much easier to cart around to gigs, or fit neatly into a studio where space is tight.

Highlights:

  • Faithful Recreation of the MS-20
  • Compact and Portable design
  • Extensive patching system
  • Classic sound
  • Plenty of modulation features
  • USB and MIDI in connections

Overall Rating 5/5 (3 reviews)

I was too young when the original was about, but this is just great to play with in my home studio

Great!

Recently bought the MS20 Mini and love it. Wonderful piece of kit - great tonal range, more stable that the original I used to own, sounds wonderful and plays well, and most importantly....is a lot of fun.
