32 Programs for the MS-20 Engine in the Korg Kronos.

This soundset is made exclusively for the Korg Kronos synthesizer.

This sound set has the focus on Hard Leads, Pads and Bass sounds which are created in the MS-20 Engine.

Performance tips and tricks

Every program uses the following setup for the Switches

SW1: Different Effect Setups

SW2: Lock JS-Y & Ribbon

JS-Y: Cutoff / Resonance

Faq: How does the Switch Locking works?

To change the sound move the JS-Y till you hear a sound you like and then press the SW2 to lock that sound. Keep in mind that when the SW2 is activated that the Joystick won’t work, since the values are locked as long as you the SW2 light is on.

Also try to change SW1, this can change a sound completely, most sounds have a different sound effect setup for switch 1.


All sounds can be used freely in any commercial and non-commercial musical production. It’s not allowed to redistribute the content in this sound set without permission of Qui Robinez.
