Shame on them :) Sometimes the factory has to deal w/ shortages in components that may be on back order themselves. I still conceive the day is coming the mini will be falling off trees littered everywhere like microkorgs. And we will be sick of seeing them. :lol:

...or maybe shops like GC use made up dates to collect our money so they can buy the large amounts they want ?

Actually speaking of which, I wonder if all the hipsters wanting to replace their MicroKorgs will snap these up for the "it's analog, therefore it must be cool" factor and sell them off cheap when they realise they have to actually program the thing to make it make sounds :lol:

Well, the plus side to this is that we at least won't be hearing the same preset sounds everywhere. On the other hand, I saw some dude in a band performing with a Juno 6 not too long ago and he couldn't even be bothered to turn the filter knob. All he did was play a saw wave for the entire set, no envelope settings or anything. Snooze. It was pretty much there just for looks.

Yeah....saw that band "Clap your hands and say yea" in '05 or so. Dude had a juno60 set on a thin pulse patch the entire set. Sounded like s**t.

Re: Garrananimal's earlier astute observations--

I think one smart investment might be to start building an inventory of digital synths...CZs and DXs...I'm sure I'm not the first to think of this...then in 10-20 years, sell them off at ridiculous prices. You will have to pay storage unit fees and so forth, but it sure is tempting.

When the day comes that the douchebags surrender their worthless MicroKorgs for MS-20 Minis... I can die in peace.
I will retire a kindly old man when I feel contempt for people patching every sound they use.

That's what video games stores do, so why not music stores. It's always a race to have the preorders out first, so people go to their store and leave their money waiting instead of the store across the street.

If korg can make a ms-20 for $599, cant they make a ms-10 for around $350 or so?

And a sq-10 for $400? Vc-10 for $300

Except that none of these big online music stores take pre-order payments up front, so... :roll:

how is this idea still going around? The MS-10 isn't considered a classic like the 20, and the 20 is so cheap now I just doubt they'd go for that.

not to completely s**t on any speculation, it'll just be the 3rd or 4th time in this thread the whole ms-10 for 300 bucks has been mentioned...
