Vintage Korg MS-03 CV Signal Processor SN 181023

via this auction

"These rare accessories were built around the same time as the MS – 20 and MS-10 semi modular synthesizers. This unit controls a synthesizer with both with trigger and CV inputs via a 1/4 inch audio input. Essentially it is a audio to CV converter. Some audio signals and sources track better than others (there is some unpredictability to be expected).

From the Korg original literature...

'Allows any instrument to 'play' a synthesizer.
This signal processor converts any audio signal input into a synthesizer control signal. Put together a guitar or vocal synthesizer instantly by connecting the MC-03 between your guitar or mike and any synthesizer with CV and trigger inputs. No alterations are needed; just by plugging into the MS-03 and adjusting the controls, your instrument can actually 'play' the synthesizer. When performing live, connect a foot switch for portamento, pitch hold, and other useful effects.'

Great overall condition. Some minor blemishes typical for a nearly 40 year old piece."
