Fantastic value for money (and space! so much sound out of a 1u unit!). It's admittedly a bit hard to program, but not impossible by any means, & you get 6 voice polyphonic analogue action! Good for basses (though as an earlier reviewer said, *very* deep bass is kinda weak, but you can always reinforce with a sub from somewhere else), excellent leads, sweeping pads etc. etc. etc. Highly, highly recommended.

Wow. This is amazing! Finally got one for $200 a few month back!

There are some pretty ill-informed comparisons and complaints about this on this site...why? This doesn't sound ANYTHING like a Korg Poly/Ex ! First off, it's ANALOG not digital (as mis-stated in the description), it's got the same CEM chips as the Oberheim Matrix6 / Expander, and now with a $50 firmware upgrade from a great guy in Sweden, you can get FULL MIDI implementation! CC#'s for ALL voive edit operations, BANK changes via MIDI, addtional DCO waveforms, and way too many othre features to list! I'll never part with it...

Check it out:

read below, curse the fact that you don't own one, and then think - "but what mayhem could I reap if If I had 6 of them critters....?"

I've been a advocate of the ms6 for years - basically 6 dual oscillator synths in a box! I'm sorry, but for the price you pay (in UK at the moment they're going for £250) makes the ms6 a bargain. Put it in bank mode so you've got 6 separate synths, and detune every oscillator (all 12) and feel the power! Now imagine each oscillator having it's own filter cutoff, res, env sweeps, etc, and youve got a pretty comlex sound dudes. The only downsides are only having one output, and that the interface is a bit "hard". Well, just learn it ,like you learn everything else and stop moaning. If you see one:buy it!

mine is bought in 92 at $200,nice hybrid analog sounds,but very noisy,poor built,the same situation i faced was the novation drumstation,both brands from uk,made me stay away from the products from uk(except kenton).return to the sounds,it's like the korg ex800(module ver of poly800),dco,vcf,vca combinations,can blow away some cheap va today(ea-1,ms2000,jp8000/8080,etc).but not a great analog beast anyway.6-part multi w/ editable parameters for each part is great,though.but no knobs are not good for analog synth u know.
