The more interesting is on the table. You can see the next synthesizer clone: the Behringer K-20, an analog clone of the KORG MS-20. Whether it is a Eurorack synthesizer or a larger desktop synth is not yet known. He looks like a Korg MS-20.

Jeffrey Ford Said In The Interview

“I’ll be honest, I love Korg mono synths. One of my all-time favourites is the Korg 770, this little guy’s older sister. First off I’m amazed at the form factor in such a small footprint. This thing sounds awesome.  Having a high pass and low pass with adjustable peak is amazing for fine tweaking tones. My 770 doesn’t have that. 

One could get lost for hours just patching to different places and finding an endless sea of sounds. I never had an MS-20 so this was a learning experience of wonderment and at times pure awe. What a flexible little monster. Most definitely a generator of sounds from outer space. Add some tape delay and I’d go missing for hours on end. Wonderful job on this guy.”
