So many people wanted this. What great news though, we have analog synths coming out of our ears now and fantastic software synths and fantastic software processing. We are luckiest electronic music producers I think, nobodies ever had so much!

According to a user on Gearslutz something like this:

Specs:

- fully analogue

- 15 % smaller than the original (but larger than the Legacy-Edition-controller)

- MIDI in + USB MIDI

- specially designed keyboard (woohoo!)

- mainboard almost identical to original MS-20 mainboard (Real patchbay then?)

- no information about filter-variant yet (presumably modified Korg35-Chip)

- project lead by the developers of the original MS-20

- comes with original user manual and patch sheets

wonder if it will have cv out?
could do with a kb with cv out, but dont want a minibrute before anyone suggests it.

Heres a rough translation.

(Quickly done, could be better, but it should be good enough.)


KORG are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, the MS-20 is turning 35. What better time to pay tribute to this culty synth? In deed KORG will present us a 'real' fully analog MS-20 as we know it and love it at the NAMM 2013. The so-called 'Mini-MS-20' is about 15% smaller than the original and equipped with both MIDI-In and USB-MIDI-Port. Contrary to some assumptions, the new units will not be based on surplus Legacy-Controller chassis, (which were about 20% smaller), but chassis specially built for this purpose including specially developed keyboards. The main circuit board as well as the components used for the actual circuitry are largely identical to the original. Which filter-variant they will ultimately use is still unknown, however, one can assume that it will be a slightly altered version of the KORG35 chip as used in the Monotron.

By the way, the project was lead by the same developers that created the original MS-20. Consequently the new models will come with the original manuals including the patch sheets. One does not have to be clairvoyant to prophesy the Mini-MS-20 a golden future. With a street price of roughly 600 Euro it will find a lot of friends and it should make everyone happy who could not realize their dream of a 'real' MS-20 because of the exorbitant used market prices.
