MS-20 Drums is based on 300 drum samples originated by stressing the filter envelopes and the modular patching system. A stunning collection of genuine analog drums including 54 Kicks & BDrums, 25 Claps, 38 Snares, 58 Toms, 35 Hats & Shakers, 61 Percussions and 29 SFX. All the drums included in MS-20 Drums sound punchy and genuinely analog. Most of them have been routed through the ESP (external signal processor) in order to obtain gorgeous distorted and extra-filtered tones.
Released in the late ’70s by Korg, the MS-20 is one of the most popular, unique, and legendary monophonic synths ever produced. Thanks to its semi-modular design that allows to significantly alter the signal flow, to the two self-resonating HP/LP filters, two VCAs, sample and hold, and a noise generato, the MS-20 (not to be confused with the MS-Mini replica) can generate fat round basses, sinuous-worm leads, noise effects and a very large array of analog sound FX.
