Radio Shack association not withstanding, the MG-1 was a great sounding little synth with a few dumb limitations, all of which have been addressed with Cherry Audio’s Surrealistic MG-1 Plus. These limitations included a limited range two-and-a-half octave keyboard (MG-1 Plus responds to any keyboard range), limited octave switching (MG-1 Plus adds a three-position transpose switch), and very limited square-wave only polyphony section (MG-1 Plus adds a sawtooth, mod abilities, and a range switch).
The Surrealistic MG-1 Plus is our gift to you this holiday season. You’ll just need to create an account at cherryaudio.com to get it, and it’s 100% free, for everyone. It’s available for both Windows and macOS, in AU, VST, VST3, AAX, and standalone formats.
