Yeah. I think that Korg should step back from the re-make business and instead focus on making their modern offerings more capable. Let Uli pick that carcass so Korg can make a Prologue that has a less meager complement of modulation options... and that tunes.

A KORG by KORG is like a MOOG by MOOG just right...

I hope KORG keep making the olden ones...

Things like a road case, dual spring reverb tank (dual outputs even though its a mono synth), dual speakers and the sheer size of the thing adds up too. Would hate to transport this thing without a case, what would it fit into? Maybe the original box for as long as that lasted.

Here's mine thru the speakers and recorded with a Zoom Q8 external mics, can't get more pure of a sound than that! Trying to get a demo via my lunchboxes, foogers and API 5500 to my ME for a new youtube video in the next day or so.

Before I forget, what I really want reissued from Korg is an MS50! Combined with a MS20M that gets you somewhat into 2600 territory.

Going for a Black Sabbath style down tuned bass here with the spring reverb patched in, not going to be everyone's cup of tea ymmv. The ringmod comes in and out as synced from the VCO 1 square wave. Otherwise a simple patch ... will take me a lifetime to fully grasp this synth.

What do any of these numbers have to do with “mass made?”

Since you asked, the human comparator built PCB's and metal face plates etc for I am guessing close to 1500 units over 5 years and 3 revs. The first step of building a TTSH is ordering his kit.

(IIRC there were 3 batches of 500) . .

So more than the total run of the MS20M kit - I think 1000?

The parts list is a separate BOM, sure, though I guess I see mass produced as including PCB's and face plates.

I would prefer a slightly modern version of it but it looking the same.

We (ok I) want a new analog stinger, with divide-down technology, there is none on the market, and so much mono & poly synths..

Mono/Poly, the only synth I really regret selling....... That an the 101.....and the Juno.....MicroWave XT.......and......

I’m sick of seeing nostalgia over features and modern workflow.

I’d rather Korg make something new that takes advantage of their newer tech:

- FPGA VA
- advanced physical modeling.
- cat6 network compatibility; soundgrid would be amazing.
- a multitrack version of the wavedrum with sequencing and multi outs.
- nutube
- an update to their zero series production mixers
- a new Kaoss pad with pro I/o.
- a new electribe that doesn’t suck.

Mainly the ability to precisely model acoustic instruments/systems. Then modify things, go to strange places parameter wise, mix with other (more familiar) synthesis methods and you have quite exciting synthesis that can go new places.

I would love to see a Yamaha VP1 remake (but this time with all parameters editable from the device)

Only 4 were ever made. The original by the designers and 3 to be sold.....or so I have heard.

VL synthesis needs a revisit.

Shouldn't this be on the Yamaha suggestions thread?

Would like it as a module. Am borrowing a mono/poly at the mo and it's so huge and heavy it has its own gravitational field in my studio

Great sound the Mony/Poly has.
I really like the old Korg stuff from the 70s, especially (in my mind) the best synth of all, the 800DV Maxi-Korg. But somehow I would better like if Behringer gave the old Korg gear a new life. Maybe it's the feeling that they would make it better and cheaper?
And I fear Korg will continue to supply the world with tiny stuff.
Of course I would like to buy a Mono/Poly as a 2U rack version, or an MS50, SQ10, MS20m, VC-10, DV800, Polysix, Lambda, Sigma, PE-1000, 900PS etc. for a reasonable price.
ARP, yeah, but don't forget something like the special ARP Pro Soloist. Give all that devices finally a rebirth! And never forget: many devices need effects to impress.

Roland is out. They don't get it. They built great devices in the 70s and 80s. Above all, the fantastic, neglected RS-505 string synth. My hope rests on Behringer.
What will Korg do? People want their vintage synths, YES! But make it affordable, update it with some modern functions, don't reduce the original seize, if not necessary, and you will have success. I want new AND old stuff.
But Korg, if you read this, please, give us the fantastic 800DV again. THIS was a sound monster!!!
Maybe this needs an extra thread

I've had 2 Monopoly's in the past and loved both of them...but still sold both which I kind of regret.

While I do have a number of Korg products and love them, I still liked the idea of how the MP was designed. This got me thinking a bit about how the Oberheim 4 voice was designed as well...which led me down a path thinking about the Monolouge.

How cool would it be to have 4 (or more) Monolouges in one system, yet having the same various voice structures that the Minilouge supports, so with a flip of a master switch you could stack all voices in unison, or poly, chord mode, etc...BUT unlike the Minilogue front panel, you would have full set of parameters for each voice board (like the current Monologue has including the seq/arp, patch memory, etc...) but 4 of them to tweak independently in real time.

So this setup would look like the OB 4 Voice using 4 SEMs in a single unit all controlled by one keyboard but instead of the SEMs you would have 4 Monologues, each one with all pots,switches, seq/arps, program memories, etc...

I would love to see something more like this than the original MP to be honest.

What do you all think?

Wavedrum with USB port and a software editor so we can actually edit the sounds would be great.

But none of this will happen because Korg don't have what it takes anymore. The company is a shadow of its former self and hardly anything they have made in recent years outside the Kronos is much more than a toy. Volca mixer...

Off topic but didn't wanna start a new thread for this... But I'm about to buy a monopoly for 1700 bux. . That's a fair price these days right? It has new walnut wood though(by synthwoods), it looks nice but I'm kinda wondering if not having the original wood would actually devalue it some. Looks to be in great condition. Will probably by it either way just want someone to tell me that's a good price hah.

It seems like it’s on the high end of normal these days (I haven’t paid attention)

I was seeing them a lot for $1400ish in NYC.

To be safe, I would check EBay sold auctions as a reference.

I ended up just ordering it aha. I could probably have got one cheaper if I waited, but have already been waiting for a good condition monopoly to pop up for a while now and didn't wanna wait any longer haha. And also dude made a couple thourough videos going thru all the parameters so I know everything works on it. Pretty stoked, even though I might have overpaid

Necro. Thread. Time.

So Korg, whatever happened to this?

Don't go asking if we want a M/P reissue, go radio silent and then release another Minilogue iteration and pretend you never asked the question!

Yeah I was pretty excited for this.
Between this and expressing lack of interest in doing a 2600 I just think Korg isn't really doing it for me.
They go to all the trouble to secure the Arp name, to only make one synth. Bonkers.
The MS-20 Mini is great, it's a shame they didn't keep going down that road.

But yes. The answer is a conditional yes.
Is it up to date? iPolysix seems completely forgotten and the SC integration didn’t work last time I checked.

Korg should have already reissued the mono/poly and polysix. They still have time, don't see these on Behringer's list yet..
