I don't know where I'd be without my MS2000r... even with a bunch of other equipment i find myself nearly writing entire songs with just this one piece of hardware!!! 4 note poly... so what unless you are intending to perform live with it, that should not limit anything. I've gotten some UBER-complex crap out of this synth the step sequencer is godlike.

Hi! I'm currently renting this unit to check it out. And I'm pleased with it. Great sound quality, great real-time tweaking, VERY fast (sequencer an LFO), a bit expensive considering the low polyphony, a bit weak on the effects side, but otherwise a fine instrument.

I know it is only made of TWO chips (a Motorola 24 bit DSP and an Hitachi Microcomputer-on-a-chip) but they do the job well. I will probably buy the unit I'm renting now (at a discounted price of course) and will keep it for years to come. Sure it's not a $3000 piece of equipment, but it sounds clean and juicy (phat).

If you want to buy one, try it out first and compare it to, let's say a Roland SH32 and you'll be able to make up your mind quite easily. I should know I own one too, and I'm going to sell it in favor of the MS2000R.

I give it a 4 out of 5 only for the lack of polyphony and the poor effects.

I just bought my MS2000R today. And I must say, so far, it's definately Phat! I used to own a Novation Bass Station, and I miss it a lot, but htis might just solve my fix. I really think that for a modelled analog synth it sounds incredible. I havn't tried out all the features yet, like the vocoder and audio in, I'm psyched to try it though. I picked it up at Guitar Center for $479 brand new, I can't complain about it for the price, I think I'll find my groove with it. kaom

After I bought this guy I was a little disappointed, but the more I use it the more I like it. I use it to create music that sounds like a combination of trance and ambient and it's perfect for that. Great for pads, great for basses, and great for creating lead sounds and odd ball sounds. Pair it with a drum machine and your set, it's weak on drum sounds.

May not work well for some styles of music since it's pretty clean sounding.

Great synth for the price, and a few decent free utilities on the net for it.

who cares if some idiot in a studio uses it? that is SO utterly lame.....give us a break.....the machine should be rated on its merit not because some freak uses it. I know a guy who makes cool music on a shit guitar. Does that mean we should all go get a shit guitar? Come on!! Anyway, the MS-2000R has balls and for that its gotta get a 4.5 from me. So much geat today lacks balls....and we cant drive the dance-floor to well without balls.
