Nerd's Ascent 3

Last year our friend Ron Kurti made a video featuring Switched On entitled Nerd's Ascent. Since then he's made a second one at the Moog sound lab and just yesterday released his third ascent to nerd-dom. They all revolve around creating a track in synthesizer hot spots and are largely improvised too.

The Korg MS-20 Kit is in stock!

Korg has produced 1000 reproductions of the MS-20 in it's original form factor (not mini) as a kit. 

No soldering or prior knowledge in electronics is required to assemble your very own MS-20. This kit release has a very special feature that makes this it unique from the original and the mini version released last year. It has both the original MS-20 filter known for its distortion and self-oscillating sound AND the revised filter seen on later production runs. The less common and revised filter is known for lower noise signal to noise ratio and a much smoother sound. It is nice to have options. There are only 1000 of these available world wide so they will quickly become collector's items.

Here is Korg's promo video for the release...
