The news has just came in from winter NAMM 2013. Korg are officially reissuing in the MS-20 in a smaller, more compact size. It will be using mini-jacks (1/8″ instead of 1/4″) and have USB-MIDI and is of course fully analogue.

Price is a very reasonable €600 and will be shipping in late february 2013.

Let's hope it sounds as good as the original!

And we have the new moog little phatty for 999USD (750 Euro?)

Analog and controler keyboards, is the only route left for hardware manufacturers in IMHO, samplers and digital synths are pretty much just computers....

Still looking for that first cheap analog poly and more analog 'groove boxes' (like analog4) to follow....

Exciting times

... and the bottom just fell out of the used MS-20 market on eBay ;)

Of course, this won't sound anything like the original.

*cough*

Shame it has mini keys. I don't know how anyone can seriously use them.

There's always external MIDI in.

Nice.

Considering they had already sold the reissued filter with success, tacking on the rest and reissuing the entire unit might very well prove a smart move.

Pretty sure a lot of folks will go for it, although the new units will probably sound quite different (cleaner, probably) considering the originals were built on late 70s tech.

Should still be good though.

(Despite the fact that we had just established that hardware blows.) :hihi:
