Korg MS20 Legacy Controller & Software

box shots via this auction
"Main features:
- Software versions of Korg's classic and ever-popular MS-20, Polysix, and WAVESTATION, plus a dedicated controller for the MS-20 software.

- The MS-20 and Polysix use Korg's proprietary CMT (Component Modeling Technology) to precisely model the electronic circuitry of the original analog instruments, capturing the exact sound and parameter response of the originals.

- In addition to replicating the original sounds, the MS-20 and Polysix software synthesizers also provide a wide range of new functionality for contemporary sound creation, such as 32-voice polyphony (max), up to 16-voice unison settings, and freely assignable external modulation settings.

- Create completely new sounds using Legacy Cell, a combination structure that lets you freely combine the MS-20 and Polysix software synthesizers together with insert/master effects and use them as a single instrument.

- The WAVESTATION software synthesizer encompasses all the waveforms, effects, and sound programs of the WAVESTATION series, delivering perfect simulation of the original sound, along with compatibility with user/third-party files (in .SYX format). It features a new graphical user interface that provides a revolutionary leap in ease of operation.

- Also included is a special edition MS-20 USB-MIDI controller dedicated for use with the MS-20 software. The controller provides all the knobs, controls and patch points of the original unit at 84% of the original size, as well as providing a velocity-sensitive mini-keyboard.

- Plug-in effects are also provided - the MS-20FX lets you run audio through the MS-20’s audio input and filters, and the MDE-X plug-in lets you use any of the Legacy Cell’s nineteen different effects.

Newly-developed CMT technology completely reproduces the circuitry of the original synthesizer

The MS-20 and Polysix software synthesizers use Korg's newly developed CMT (Component Modeling Technology). In contrast to existing approaches that simply simulate the output sound, CMT digitally models the transistors, condensers, resistors, and other parts used in the original hardware, and replicates the same circuitry as the original. The complex sound and parameter response can be perfectly reproduced, delivering all the power and subtlety that up until now only true analog synthesis could provide."
