Re: Korg MS-20 Mini

Also, to avoid any confusion, also listen to the Mini through a pair of headphones without being connected to the interface. You mentioned a "low frequency hum," which I assume is ground loop problem, but be aware that the Mini will always have this low layer of hiss mixed in the sound. If you are ...

Re: Korg MS-20 Mini

Ok thanks. The hum is happening even when the USB cable is disconnected so I'm thinking it must be a ground loop.

Re: Korg MS-20 Mini

Re: Korg MS-20 Mini

Yeah I'm loving mine. Had a Friday night to spend with it, and was up until about 4 in the morning.

I'm a getting a rather annoying low frequency hum when I plug into my interface, anyone have any ideas how to mitigate/eliminate this?

Re: Heart/Brain of your setup?

Re: Korg MS-20 Mini

Got my hands on the MS-20 at last! Just spent a couple hours with it and I must say it's pretty amazing. Definitely the most expressive instrument I've ever played in my life. It has so much versatility, I can't wait to sit down tomorrow and incorporate it with the rest of my gear.

Re: Korg MS-20 Mini

Checked my bank statement today and noticed there was about 600 dollars missing. Turns out Guitar Center charged me for the MS-20 and it's allegedly going to arrive in the store on Thursday. We shall see.

why not cancel your order and buy one off Ebay? Last time I checked there were several available for sale.
Not a bad idea. I'll give guitar center another month or two, though.

Re: Korg MS-20 Mini

Yeah I guess it really comes down to what I've been saying all along which is "stop telling me that you're going to have it on a specific date, if I'm not going to get it then"
