Overview

The first MS-20 was released in the late-’70s and followed up decades later by a mini-sized reissue, a soft-synth plug-in and DIY kit version. KORG now has resumed production of a completely assembled, full-size version with the KORG MS-20 FS. Driven by their rich synth heritage and the historical significance of the original MS-20, KORG made the MS-20 FS authentic to the original in every way. It faithfully recreates its sound, feel and analog circuitry.

KORG MS-20 FS Main Features

  • A full-size MS-20 developed by the original engineers
  • Both early and late versions of the MS-20 filter available
  • Flexible patching system
  • Free music software bundle

Full-Size MS-20 Developed by the Original Engineers

The original engineers who developed the MS-20 have overseen this recreation. They spared no effort to replicate the circuitry of the original unit, ensuring that its historic sound is reproduced with complete fidelity. This ensures that the exact sound of the original unit has been reproduced. The result is a brighter sound, like that of an original MS-20 in mint condition—before any of the components aged.

Includes Early- and Late-Model Filter Circuits

Depending on the era, the original KORG MS-20 used different VCF circuits. Earlier units used a filter famous for its distinctive distortion and self-oscillation. Later units had a more mellow filter with a low-noise design. The MS-20 FS features both filters, which you can switch between by moving a jumper pin on the circuit board.

Extremely Flexible Patching System

The patching system of the KORG MS-20 FS lets you create complex sounds by changing the connections between the various units with patch cables. Using different combinations of the modulation input/output and trigger, noise generator, and sample and hold can produce a virtually limitless variety of sounds.

Free Music Software Bundle

The MS-20 FS comes with complimentary software titles and tools to help you take your music creation to the next level. The bundle includes software synths from KORG and other brands, iZotope Ozone Elements, Skoove piano software and Reason Lite DAW.
