Synth Glossary

Modular:
A modular synthesizer is one where the structure of the synthesizer isn't fixed. There are a variety of modules available which can be plugged into each other. Tradionally these modules were physical boxes, but they can now be emulated with software and patched with on-screen cables....

MS 50
This was the most modular, most complex, and therefore most expensive of Korg's MS line. It was designed to be an expander and, therefore, had either Hz/volt or volt/octave interfaces. The MS-50 was totally modular, in that there was no hard-wire patching at all. A monophonic synth, the MS-10 had one VCO, two VCFs, two VCAs, a voltage controlled LFO, two ASDRs (with normal and inverted outputs), pink and white noise, a signal inverter, multiples, a ring modulator, a voltmeter, sample and hold, and a headphone socket. It is designed to match the SQ10 analog sequencer.
