No matter which way you look at it, Korg is Korg! State of the art. Ok, ok, maybe the MS-20 revival boom has overpeaked, considering that there are now the MS-20 (software) Controller, the MS-20 mini, the MS-20 Kit and the MS-20M Kit along with the original MS-20. Be that as it may, the new MS-20M Kit is still a pretty sensible buy.
Even if it’s already a couple of months old, a MUST for this summer is the interview with Fumio Mieda (engineer of the original MS-20) and Hiroaki Nishijima (chief engineer at Korg, responsible for the new MS-20). Reading it through only takes a couple of minutes. It’s a few of the details that make for mandatory reading.
