Korg SQ-1 is here!

Oh yeah baby. đŸ™‚

I’ll be sure to post my thoughts and comments on this device once I’ve had a chance to play with it.

Korg SQ-1 and MS-20 Mini
Korg SQ-1 kit contents, two cheap batteries and a mini jack to MIDI cable.

There is a USB port on the back which might be able to provide power but interestingly the unit takes 2 AA batteries, 3v.

MIDI operates at 5v and the CV on the MS-20 I believe is 8v so Korg are obviously doing something devious here to save power. Possibly using some sort of ‘joule theif’. Interesting.

Check back for updates to this post with more information as it becomes known.
