Is there an iMS-20 equivalent for Logic (apart from "es m")?

I'm mainly interested in two things: (1) the unique sound, (2) overlapping recording for MIDI, so that I would be able to leave a loop on, and try getting the best tune out of 20 or so tries.

Korg publishes a plugin that emulates the MS-20 synthesizer. This is the same synthesizer that is emulated by the iMS-20 iPad app, so you should be able to get the sound you're looking for.

It's available in AU and VST format so it should work with Logic, and I presume you can use MIDI with it like most any other virtual instrument, so you should be able to do whatever kind of MIDI looping and overdubbing that you want.

  • Thanks a lot, Bob! Guess why I haven't rated your question yet. Yup. Haven't been able to stop playing, hehe. Best 50 bucks I've spent in a while.
