At the 2015 NAMM Show, Korg is introducing the MS-20 Module Kit with SQ-1 Analog Sequencer.
The Korg MS-20 Module Kit lets you build a module version of the iconic MS-20 analog synthesizer, with greatly expanded synthesis capabilities over Korg’s previous MS-20 synths.
The MS-20 kit features all the synthesis power of the MS-20, plus new oscillator sync and FM modes, a filter select switch (to jump between the original and later production filters from the original MS-20), and a comprehensive junction section for integration with SQ-1 and other CV-equipped analog components.
According to Korg, ‘This desktop version of the MS-20 puts real analog gear the hands of musicians looking to integrate classic sounds with their current setup’.
Here’s the official video intro:
Limited to a run of 1,000 units worldwide, each MS-20M Kit will come bundled with an SQ-1 sequencer, featuring dual CV (Hz/V and V/Oct) trigger and gate, Audio Sync (to clock volca series, electribes, or monotribe), three-pin and USB MIDI and more. This lets you integrate the MS-20M – along with any other CV-equipped analog product – into a digital/analog hybrid production setup.
“The feature-rich sequencing of the SQ-1 is sure is fun, flexible, and powerful; with options to run and/or clock multiple devices,” says James Sajeva, Brand Manager for Korg products.
The MS-20 Module Kit with SQ-1 Analog Sequencer is priced at US $1,700. Availability is to be announced.
