New Synth Imagines A Hot-Rodded MS-20

US Cherry Audio releases the polyphonic PS-20      18/05/21

Cherry Audio describes PS-20 as an ultra-realistic, polyphonic, hot-rodded tribute to Korg's renowned MS-20. A spokesperson had this to say about it,

"First and foremost, PS-20's dual highpass/lowpass filters super accurately recreate the MS-20's famous raunchy sound in all of its squelchy, screaming glory. In addition to its unique filters, the MS-20's other signature feature is its modular-style patch panel. We've reconfigured the patch panel from the original instrument, adding many desired in and out patch points for all oscillators, filters, and VCAs, correcting the confusing terminology of the original, and throwing in a few extras that greatly expand its usability.

Every part of the instrument has been "souped up" with killer features, including 16-note polyphony, a unique three-layer, eight-step sequencer with flexible CV outs, and integrated effects, including a beastly distortion, modulation echo with stereo spread, and a lush digital reverb with fantastic spring and plate emulations.

The PS-20 truly is one of the most quirky and unique instruments we've released. Between its sometimes unpredictable filter behavior, and the tremendous flexibility of its patch panel and sequencer, the possibilities are endless, and the creative "happy accident" quotient of PS-20 is simply off the charts!"
