After a week
05.03.2017
I've been messing with this synthesiser for about a week now. I must admit it's a lot more to take in than i had expected. There's way too many features and ways to use this synth in retrospect to others within the same price range as well as ways to connect it to other gear you have.

Fully supportive of eurorack, i've got a beatstep connected to this as well as my Arturia Keylab49. I prefer the bigger keys of my arturia to be honest as well as the fact that i can control my ableton sessions from there as well. I have no problem with the small keys presented by Korg on the MS-20 mini but i like having more octaves for a quick switch up.

It comes with a booklet with multiple preset options to get you on your way and creating your own sounds. it also has some empty ones so while jamming if you happened to cross an awesome sound you can fill in the information and have it for when you wana come back to the sound.

3.5mm to 1'4" is a little weird for me, however the output signal is quite nice, you do need a mono cable though. It also supports USB for midi communications which is awesome if you don't use much analog gear.

Pros:
- Great look and feel
- Price range is perfect for all it's features
- Compatibility with setup is high

Cons:
- Plastic knobs
- Small keys

I would 100% recommend this synth to any professional, amateur and beginner musician. It's just a beautiful synth.

the beast
09.08.2015
The more I use it, the more I love it! No doubt this is one of the best synthesizers. (I never tried the original one, but comparing videos with them for sure the mini is not that powerful, still.. its amazing!)

Yes, its noisy and hissy but thats the way I like it. The filter is the beast here... a totally boring digital kinda synth can get you wet when you push the frequencies to the limits...

Its one of those few synths you will see in every major artist's studio, and not only for collecting dust... I am sure they use it in every song and album they make.

It only accepts note data, so for example, for automation of filters you have to do them by hand. Which is big fun to do!

It always impress me and probably the only minus is that you cant save presets, but you can just print the blank ones you got together with the synth.

And if by any chance you own a space echo... man... the combination is out of this world... add some reverb to it too and you can even make ambient music...

With a little bit of knowledge and imagination there is nothing that this CHEAP piece of plastic cant make... yes, in my opinion its very cheap! Its the best synth you can get for the money and actually I am pretty sure you cant get something better for even twice of its price!
