Looks like an ms20 clone.
about time, was a bit disappointed at the prices of the OG or mini…
“ready to ship, we’re just warming up”
not much fanfare, which is also nice.
Looks like an ms20 clone.
Looks like they had to drop a 0 from the name:
It will be interesting to hear if it sounds like the OG. I don’t want that mini ish. And I hope that the built quality is as good as the Boog.
I think they should focus on the things that arent readily available. Looks like they just want to mess with Korg with this clone.
16 voice poly chain!
Go on, who’s gonna be the first to buy 16 of these puppies.
Hell yeah! Count me in. The MS20 is my favourite monosynth and I miss it like crazy but I can’t justify an extra set of minikeys that doesn’t have a midi out.
Edit: it’s v/Oct!
Edit2: it’s not v/Oct.
I kind of agree. But despite its status as an icon, I don’t like/have room for the original’s or even the mini’s form factor. And I can’t justify spending the amount necessary for a used 20m.
Has there been any mention of the CV scaling? If the K-20 is using the more common V/Oct that would be another argument pro Behringer.
Sure, it’s a clone of something available. As such it’s a) a little boring in light of all the interesting rare synths that deserve a reissue, b) slightly annoying and c) continuing a potentially dangerous (in the long run) trend of dumping prices. While nice in the short term this might suck profits out of a healthy market and, as seen in other markets, starve especially the “middle class” of both devices and manufacturers.
Will I get one despite all of this? Well, maybe.
Meh, I’ve got an original MS20 ;p
Thanks Behringer, why not make something new and interesting instead of another clone?

A bit dull? I guess if it is £299 then probably sell well, but weird that they did not even bother to add any mods like PWM, LFO range, VCO outputs and any other common MS-20 mods.
Hopefully it will have full cc control though, the ms-20mini midi spec is basic at best.
That’d be cool. But I highly doubt it judging by their other recent clones. None of those had more than a very basic Midi implementation.
Zero chance of any additional midi and rightly so - having a 2nd filter in a eurorack format at that price £265 with better build quality than the Korg (which I freqin’ love despite the quality and VCA thumps)
On balance i’d want the device in the classic chassis, but this has a more legible panel and whilst i doubt it’s rocking v/oct it would surely be quite a convincing reason to jump on it
Note there’s no output for modulation (and no wheel CV) - there is no clarification : ADDITIONAL MIDI on this - it could have had an assignable out as per Neutron, but clearly has none
Not what it is all about - it’s a VCO VCF VCA and all the fun of the korg filter is in the nuance of the potentiometer in your hand
It’s great! sold the Mini ms20, bought 2 Neutrons and can‘t be happier!
now it’s more Buchla like and I really don‘t miss the wobbling Knobs and permanent noise on the VCA which is really not cool
but I miss the filter and the external signal processor so thx to behringer I can just rack it up in line with the neutrons
Funny, I kind of like the ms20mini imperfections (my knobs don’t seem to wobbly though) it is raw, dirty and cheap, if it was food it would be a Pot Noodle Bombay Badboy
Next to my ms10 the ms20mini is worlds apart, although the 10 is even filthier with deeper bass, this was also the case with the og ms20 too though.
i know exactly what you mean and it’s great for some distorted wildness and rawness but I like the crystal clear voices and overlapping notes with both neutrons.
and the Full playable range of the oscillators
i was really impressed by Korg that they were doing a reissue and I was extremely bounded to the monotribe sound at this time
btw I guess it’s glow in the dark paint on the K2 which would be really cool
Sorry, no proper source for that one, just rumours. A lot of the press info does say ‘eurorack compatible’ so I’d say that’s a big hint.
Cool to see both filter types available via a switch as well! This plus a Neutron will make a very fun modular playground.
Does this mean I can’t plug my midi keyboard into this thing and play it? Do I need some modular gear or something?
yes, of course keys will work - just no added midi functionality as per the critique above
