Today, the sounds of the MS-20 have been reborn as the Korg MS20 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.

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 the Korg MS-20 plug-in synth, and the iMS-20 iPad app.

Fifty years have passed since Korg was founded, and Korg have once again put our hand to an analog synthesizer. We took particular care to deliver smooth parameter adjustments, which are a distinctive feature of analog synthesizers. We also took special care to completely reproduce the original specifications of the MS-20. The analog circuits we designed 35 years ago still deliver the same unbeatable, powerful sound, from the ultra-low to the ultra-high range.

The Korg MS20 mini patch book created for all current hardware re-issues of the korg MS20. Unlike the original patch book created in the 1970’s, this collection is aimed at more modern music genres demonstrating the Korg MS20 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 Korg  MS20 mini panel thus making it easier to set up these great sounds.

  • Overseen by the engineers of the original Korg MS20; a complete replication of the original analog circuitry:
    – 2VCO / 2VCA / 2VCF / 2EG / 1LFO structure
    – Self-oscillating high-pass/low-pass filters with distinctive distortion

    – Extremely flexible patching system
  • Faithful recreation of the Korg MS20 at 86% of the size
