The Korg Synthesizer Collection 2 has finally arrived in 2020 with a big update for the GUIs including high-resolution graphics & scalability.
We all begged for it and nothing was done for a long time. Well now, Korg has fulfilled one of our big wishes. Not a new hardware Synthesizer clone, but a great free update for their beloved Synthesizer Collection 2. They have finally updated all the GUIs of their classic synth plugins. They are now scalable in six levels and offer high-definition graphics for a modern display environment. The usability has been significantly improved and the plugins are much easier to use with the new GUIs.
The best news: the update is free of charge of all Korg Collection users. Thank you Korg, this update was so necessary.
The story of the KORG Collection began in 2004 with the KORG Legacy Collection. At the time it was a groundbreaking attempt to authentically reproduce the MS-20 and Polysix, Korg keyboard masterpieces loved and used around the world. Each further addition to the collection quickly became used and admired by sound and music creators everywhere because of their expansive feature set combined with consistently high sound and performance quality.
The KORG Collection series, which reproduces some of KORG’s greatest synthesizer keyboards as software, are renewed as KORG Collection 2. The six legacy plugins: MS-20, Polysix, Mono/Poly, M1, WAVESTATION and MDE-X each have a completely revised user interface that is scalable and high resolution. In addition there are new effects algorithms and preset programs for MS-20, Polysix, Mono/Poly and MDE-X. The KORG Collection 2 showcases these classic synthesizers to set new sound and performance standards.
Korg Collection 2 GUIs update is available now as a free download for all Collection users. The bundle is now on sale for $299 (regular $399), single plugins for $39 (regular $99.99) and Triton for $199.99 (regular $249) for a limited time.

Great news, thank you for the heads up
Yeah! The MS-20 plugin I bought during a previous is suddenly usable!
(The previous GUI made for such a negative experience that I never went back to that plugin.)
Wonder if any of this has to do with the Gadget lineup. This GUI is quite distinct and, in some ways, still older than the Gadget versions.
