Many good things were displayed at NAMM. To me, one of the most important was the new Korg MS-20 Mini. I played with it for a long time and enjoyed it very much. It is very close to my full-size model. The MS-20 itself is an electronic instrument of extreme cultural importance, being the tool that motivated the development of several significant electronic music styles. This new version, available to all at a very low price, can only mean good things for the further development of these styles, and modular synthesis technique in general.

Because of this impending instrument release, I announce with great satisfaction ENGLISH TEAR, the first in a line of small utility modules. This module features the expected "voltage processor" attenuverter and big offset knobs, but also includes a full set of functions for interfacing to an MS-20. Easy conversion from exponential volt-per-octave to linear hertz-per-volt and back, as well as V-trigger to S-trigger conversion. Jack normalling fixes the voltage processors to these converter circuits, so you may scale the input voltages as desired. The log/expo converter ciruits also have many other uses in your modular system beyond the conversion of pitched voltages.

Price? Cheaper than anything else I've done. It will be released when the MS-20 comes out. I was thinking of dropping it into the Zorlon/Donut production run scheduled for April, but if the MS is somehow released before that I can expedite the build.

Brilliant! applause

Having already pre-ordered the MS-20 mini the release of this interfacing module is really excellent. I had been looking at various DIY options for trigger converters and now won't even bother with this coming along.

If the MS-20s a hit this will follow I reckon.
Entrainer
Nice. Next he should do one for 200e...

1.2V to 1V and 1V to 1.2V per octave.
Reamp like feature for going down and up in dB.
Offset/rectifier for converting modulation from -/+
to +. 1/8" to nana + ground.

Call it the Beach's Bitch. (for CaliPORN I.A.)
Mercutio
Cool for metasonix stuff too !
CF3
Bravo.
rhizomatik
Brilliant. Been looking at the elby option, but it's huge. I need two, one for the minikorg 700s as well thumbs up

Cool, I was thinking about options to integrate my MS20 in my modular enviroment, oplab, elby, this looks just perfect..

Edit: Considering how many people own an original MS20 and how many will buy the new one this module looks already a best seller, smat move and useful stuff! I can already see Renè sequencing my MS20!

As the owner of an original MS-20 and a wretch, this would be infinitely useful to me.

The aspect that I've quoted above has already been addressed by the Synovatron CVGT1. It's wonderful for interfacing a MakeNoise René with a Buchla and having my Piston Honda play in tune with my 250e, 223e, etc.

A Wretch owner is still faced with scaling and tuning the Wretch. The easiest way to get a Wretch in tune is to slave its oscillators to an already running Saw or Square (or other. Be creative! They will sound different!).
Simply insert the audio waveform of your choice into the Pitch CV In jack and the Wretch will follow along happily. AND you can ignore those 4 trim pots. The following audio snippet demonstrates my Wretch playing in perfect tune with my Buchla 200e. The arpeggios are a Buchla 259e and the Wretch Machine.

excellent


I'm using the original ms20 so i'll have to get some 1/8" to 1/4" adaptors
or I'll build some

Anyone knows where to get good and cheap 1/8" mono jack connectors to DIY my cables? SlayerBadger!

Super badass. I am friends with some folks at Korg and was planning on discussing this issue with them in friendly conversation -- basically "hey I understand you wanted to bring a product to market which was faithful to the original, but given the widespread adoption of the 1v/oct standard, WHY on earth did you not make this modification to make your product more interoperable with all the current competitors?".

This would be a no-brainer suggested sell to every new purchase of the Mini MS-20. Any idea of projected street price?

Cheers,

Rean NYS226B are my go-to. Easy to solder, fit all types of jacks well.

fantastic!

yeah!

Sweet. Maybe I'll sequence the damn thing after all.

applause I think you just made my year
more expensive
Mitchk1989
well, I THOUGHT I could resist the ms-20 mini...
deastman
Fantastic! I could have really used this with my modular and original MS-20 for at least the past ten years...
giorgio
best thing about this is that it will open up the ESP to be able to control the rest of my audio modular and other CV gear.
Ted
Big news. screaming goo yo
