Melville, NY – April 2, 2021 – KORG announces that its MS-20 FS (full-size) Monophonic Synthesizer is now shipping. This is the long-awaited 1:1 scale reissue of the legendary MS-20, reborn in four limited-edition colors (green, white, blue and black). Perfectly 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 has carried on the MS-20 tradition in a mini-sized reissue, a software synthesizer plugin, and even a DIY kit version. These were driven by KORG’s pride in its synthesizer heritage, its understanding of the MS-20’s historical significance, KORG’s responsibility to faithfully carry on the analog circuit technology that they’ve developed over the years, and their desire to pass on the MS-20’s generation-spanning sound to the future.
And 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. But 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.
This MS-20 FS is the genuine MS-20 made by KORG, faithful to the original in every way. Today, over 40 years after first appearing in 1978, musicians hungry for this absolutely timeless sound can hear the genuine analog power of the MS-20.
