> "Yeah sometimes software instruments are right for the application. I've never created a track with 100% software, but I choose my spots. It's funny because sometimes I'll be using a software emulation of a synth I actually own. Like the lead sound on the song Dive, that's the MS-20 plugin. I was sitting there writing it and looking at the real MS-20 and wondering what the hell I was thinking. But it just has a different sound and for that particular song, it made sense"more
I first bought this for my iPad as I wanted to know what an MS-20 is like as I was thinking of getting the ms-20 mini but for 10 quid compared to the mini which is now around 450 it is an aboloute no-brainier for someone on a very small budget like myself and of course the mini is a lot better but for the money it is incredibly hard to beat. Not only is the actual synth of the iMS-20 brilliant, it has a wide pallet of good quality effects (missing any overdrive, fuzz or distortion which was quite annoying) and an incredibly powerful sequencer and drum machine which allows you to create entire songs by chaining together sequences and drum loops. Overall a brilliant sounding synth with many different possibilities and a good emulation of the original MS-20 and a great app overall with the added effects drum machine and sequencer.
I love the MS-20, but this emulation desperately needs an update so it can be resized. Its ridiculous that on the huge 70" screens we have now, we still have to use a scrollbar to move from one side to the other horizontally. I would use it a lot more if they fixed this one issue. Come on Korg, it's 2019. The ironic thing is, they resized it in the bundle, but if you bought it separately like I did, because I wasn't interested in the M1, the single plugin version doesn't resize....STILL. It gets 3 stars from me because of this one reason
