I doubt it is a hoax. I found it on the official distributor for korg in Argentina, on the price list. I suppouse that they were updating the price list and added the new products without noticing it. It is a poly, it says it is bitimbral.

Well if this pans out ill be damn excited. Korg makes terrific-sounding instruments so I can't imagine these being junk. I have to say, I'm actually more interested in the poly than the ms-20!

The ms20 mini just looks like a korg controller. Still, heavily interested.

The exact same size as the Legacy Controller? Looks like they recycled the metalwork for it. The third photo has it next to an MS-20 for reference.

Interesting that these are coming form someone with just one post, posting from an Argentinian IP...

I wonder what's gonna come first, people complaining about the price or people complaining it doesn't sound like the original?

That's what I thought at first too, but the headphone jack is different.

What are modular synths like the ms20 like? The whole thing with hard-wiring the connections. I never used one before.

These are WAY too expensive. And the MS-20 doesn't sound as good as the original. So this is a total disaster.





:D

But in all seriousness, I suspect the "King Korg" is a VA. That prominent "XMT" (cf. MMT on the Radias) could be the giveaway...

I wonder if it will have MIDI, could retire my old MS-20 if so.

the prices are in argentinian pesos, so, the kingkorg should be a little more than 1000 usd and the Ms-20, a little more than 500 usd!
