Korg MS-20 – Vintage Synth

Korg’s MS-20 is one of the most popular vintage synths on the second-hand market. Its unique aggressive sound and flexible semi-modular architecture helped make it an icon of the late 70s analogue.

Released in 1978 with the whole MS series range they offeren hugely increased synthesis power.

I’m a big fan but unfortunately cannot afford the real model, so I went for the Korg software synth and Korg MS-20 App on the Ipad which are really good and fun to use.

Well-known musicians using the Korg MS-20 are amongst others:  Astral Projection, Liaisons Dangereuses, Soulwax, AirLiam Howlett of The Prodigy, Simian Mobile Disco, Daft PunkWilliam Orbit, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Goldfrapp, Mr. Oizo, Royksopp, Aphex Twin.
