Keio Gijutsu Mini Pops 20 S Analog Drum Machine

The instrument

In the 1960s and 1970s, rhythm machines usually only had one mono output. Korg equipped the 20S model as the only one of the Mini Pops with two outputs. If only one output is used, the sound is mono; if both outputs are used, the sound is stereo with two different sounds. Additional effects can be set on the mixer and a metronome can also be activated. (Source: Amazona)
