A close up look at the new Korg MS-20 Mini
I got fed up with the waiting times and managed to pick up an MS-20 Mini from Japan, so I figured I'd run through some of the things that haven't yet been mentioned in previous videos. Also I show how to make a cheap V-Trig to S-trig converter so that you can use normal gates to trigger the Mini. Finally a trick to use a standard cv/gate sequencer with the Mini with something unexpected as the converter!
Overall I'm very pleased with the unit, the build isn't as solid as the original but the keybed is better for sure. Still at this price there's really nothing to grumble about.
So here's the pics of the partial teardown I did, doesn't seem to be any magic points marked on the silkscreen like on the monotron/tribe but it's always possible there is something on the component side, i'll let someone else discover that ;)
