Synth Glossary

A filter filters out certain frequencies in the sound. There are four main types: a low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and notch, which are covered elseware in the glossary. Filters have two controls - the frequency control selects at which frequency the filter should start operating and the resonance control creates a peak just before the bit where it starts filtering out frequencies. This is used to create acid-type sounds....


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.
