Arturia KORG MS-20 V License - Primal black monolith

KORG MS-20 V is a virtual instrument for sound explorers in search of the meaner side of analog. From punchy analog textures to abrasive screaming sounds, explore a flawless emulation of a primal instrument overflowing with attitude and streamlined for modern production.

The analogelemental

KORG MS-20 V unites screaming oscillators and filters with a semi-modular architecture and cutting-edge upgrades for a monstrous virtual instrument that transcends subtractive synthesis.

Explore the darker side of analog and effortlessly immerse your mix in the unearthly sounds of a machine that takes no prisoners - shuddering detuned basslines, snappy resonant thuds, and howling hard-sync melodies await.

Harnessing chaos

If raw energy had a sound, this would be it. KORG MS-20 V channels the high-voltage sound and hacked-circuit quality of an iconic beast of a synth, and the resulting sound is every bit as primal and fearsome as it always was. Do you dare tame it?

The test of time

A machine that’s remained unchanged since its release four decades ago, yet remains a production go-to for screaming leads, seismic wobbling basses, and edgy pulse width textures. KORG MS-20 V virtualizes this ageless analog monster for your DAW workflow.


KORG MS-20 V already sounds impressively gnarly from the first note - but when you patch into its circuitry and manipulate its signal path, you’ll unleash its true mind-bending potential. Twist, transform, and torment its sound by creating your own connections.

Streamlined, sharpened

We didn’t stop at making the most authentic MS-20 emulation possible; this instrument has been retrofitted with modern functionality, including 6-voice polyphony with unison, a built-in sequencer, expanded voicing, and FX, perfectly suited to contemporary EDM, urban, and pop production.

A meanermonosynth

KORG’s original MS-20 was released in 1978, during a period considered by many to be the golden age of analog synthesizers.

This was a blessing and curse; these instruments had never been more in vogue, but there was also plenty of competition.

Surprisingly, the MS-20 was preceded by a range of polyphonic instruments, KORG’s PS Series. The company wanted to cram as much functionality into as little space as possible, something that was notoriously difficult with analog polysynths. It was this design principle, however, that led them to creating an accompanying monosynth - enter MS-20.
