MS-20 FS Monophonic Synthesizer
Korg has announced its MS-20 FS full-size Monophonic Synthesizer. This is the 1:1 scale reissue of the MS-20, reborn in four limited-edition colors: green, white, blue and black. Recreating the original MS-20 while adding powerful new features, the MS-20 FS is a 37-key classic analog monosynth with patch bay, external signal processor, MIDI in and USB. The original MS-20, unveiled in 1978, played a vital role Korg’s history as a synthesizer brand. Even after sales of the original came to an end, Korg carried on the MS-20 tradition in a mini-sized reissue, a software synthesizer plugin, and a DIY kit version. Now with the MS-20 FS, Korg has resumed production of a completely assembled, full-size MS-20, which had in 2014 been produced only in very small numbers as a kit. In addition to faithfully recreating the sound, feel and analog circuitry, this full-size reissue consists of limited numbers of the four different powder-coated color variations.
