Good points: basses are great.

Bad points: pitch doesn't go low enough so a deep bass runs out of steam on the low notes - a real shame. And what a nightmare to program, especially when setting up complex sounds - I end up with 3 copies of similar sounds just to layer and get the desired detune.

I like the MS6 very much - it sounds quite a bit fatter than the Roland

MKS-50, though they both use DCOs and analog filters. One problem is that

it doesn't keep quiet when no notes are sounding, so that when I try to

run it through my fuzz box, there is constant noise (because the fuzz box

amplifies the signal).

Great inexpensive analog synth. Yes, analog!!! I read one review here where it is stated that this synth has an digital emulation of a 4pole analog filter...Well, the MS6 has DCO (digitally controlled Oscilators) but it has ANALOG FILTERS (it uses curtis chips- like it or not). All in all it is a very "musical" analog module. No programing knobs (use a midi fader box because it can respond to SysEx) and it can also be programmed from the front panel with two digit leds and a few push buttons : ( but than you can get hundreds of analog sounds that are extremelly musical...I don't know it has a peculliar sweetness : ) Imagine a Matrix1000 (but not so powerfull in terms of programming, but much more musical...you will always find a sound to fit in a mix). It has six voices and it is also 6 part multitimbral. I really like it. I rate it 4 out of five, also because it has one wonderful price to usability/sound ratio.
