Korg MS-20 Mini WM Semi-Modular Analog Synthesizer

The KORG MS-20 mini is now available as a limited-edition white monotone variation model. This model is the first new color to appear in the nearly 40 years since the original unit went on sale in 1978. Based on the black that is emblematic of the MS-20's distinctive presence, this new model features a clean white monotone for its front panel and knobs, while retaining the faithful circuitry, 5-pin MIDI, and USB MIDI of the black MS-20 mini. Combining a completely new freshness together with a vintage feel that befits the MS-20 as the original semi-modular synthesizer, this limited-edition model will be a great way to add classic MS-20 sounds to any setup!

For integration into a modular set-up, check out The Harvestman English Tear.  The English Tear achieves effortless conversion of V/Oct signals into Hz/V signals recognized by the MS-20 and vice versa. Additionally, the module also converts V- and S-Triggers and affords the ability to scale all input voltages in accordance with the synthesist’s personal taste.  (NOTE:  The Harvestman English Tear is sold separately.)
