Full Size Keyless MS20 with Sequencer at NAMM

Post by Infrasound » Wed Jan 21, 2015 11:23 am

Didn't you mention this Stab Frenzy?

I have no details, just a YouTube clip.

Looks like Korg may have done what they talked about a fair while ago.

I hope the SQ-1 sequencer will be avaiable on it's own. I would have prefered a reissue of the SQ-10, but this could be fun.

Ridiculous price. The original was meant to be fairly affordable, this is just a rip off.

Do you guys actually think this will be $10,000 when the keyboard kit is $1,400? Come on. I'm sure that's just a placeholder used by that website when they don't know the actual price.

I think they rather should've written 'TBA' than 'TBC' ;) .

Bleep Belch Squeal Squirt Bloop Squelch...

Now entering the Wayback Machine for 1976. :roll:

I'm sure this will sell very well if they keep it cheap enough.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Yeah, if they keep it cheap and if it doesn't have problems such as those that the Beatstep had / has...

Looking good IMO!

Hopefully Korg won't be mean, and will let you buy the sequencer by itself.

I doubt that it will cost 9999 lol

Yeah it's not a Moog sequencer after all :lol:

Not allowing to buy the sequencer alone would be a real diccck move on Korg's part. Doubt it actually...

Neh 10k is just a placeholder I think. But very badly chosen to put it there. No MS-20 is worth 10k, no matter if they've removed the keyboard and added the sequencer.

This thing looks pretty cool. Why is it a kit? Does that mean it will be a lot more expensive, like the MS-20 kit? I like that keyless format, though.

In the old days kit synths were cheaper than the assembled ones, so it would be odd to charge more for a kit.
