The Korg MS-20 is an absolute classic, of that there is no doubt. Famed for its fat, warm sound, the MS-20 is a semi-modular mono-synth that has been used by countless artists from Aphex Twin to Daft Punk.
I had the opportunity to sample a particularly old model that had seen better days but had character oozing out of every jack plug. I sampled each oscillator with all the settings fully open (full sustain, filters open, etc.) to capture the raw sound of the oscillators. Each waveform was sampled multiple times to capture the erratic nature of the synth and the pulse waveform was sampled 5 times to capture various stages of the pulse width. In total there are 125 samples.
MS-20 also includes 21 versatile Ableton Live synth presets so you can get straight to making music.
