US company Oversynth, has come up with some really great front panel designs for the beloved MS-20 Mini and Behringer Neutron semi-modular synthesizers, aimed at helping to unlock the max potential behind these two incredible machines, serving as guides for aspiring and professional modular enthusiasts alike.


Since its debut, the MS-20 has been one of the coolest synths around. Back as a smaller counterpart to the original MS-20 design as the "MS-20 Mini", the circuitry has been designed just like the original, including the filter which alone is something to truly behold! That infamous Korg35 filter module that bites and growls with such a unique sound to it, making it one of the most revered since its inception.


Fast forward nearly 40 years later since the birth of the MS-20, and enter the mighty Behringer Neutron! Another instant classic that has captured the imagination of so many synth enthusiasts, with powerful Curtis CEM3340 chip-based oscillators, and a monstrous originally designed filter dubbed the "Moffatt" filter. Add the 56 patch points, and the super cool Bucket Brigade Delay, and you have unbelievable sonic power at your fingertips.

But the truth is that for many, both these synths can become a bit complicated if you are not familiar with modular synthesis. While they are both "semi-modular" in nature - meaning they are hardwired underneath the hood and ready to play, but can also be interconnected in many different ways - this can at least in the beginning, be a little frustrating and confusing.


If you feel you ever had trouble trying to understand exactly how to patch points properly, these stylish, color coded themes, made of a high quality paper product that is water and chemical proof, will help you to begin to understand the process with a bit more ease, visually guiding you along the way to help you make the most out of your sessions.


Installment is also for the most part a breeze. Simply take off your knobs and screws, overlay the panel, and re-install everything...that's it!


You can find a really nice selection of these must-have overlays for your MS20 Mini or Behringer Neutron on the Oversynth website.
