I agree, this synth is rewarding if you put forth the time to program it. Low polyphony is a bummer, but the price is great for what you get. Nice attack on bass, it really punches...the DWS waveforms are good for getting PPG and ESQ1ish tones...vocoder is a nice plus as well. I don't own one but I have friends that own them, so I've gotten to play them and hear them through a variety of monitors, from crappy bookshelfs to Mackie monitors..

I would have to say the obvious features are interesting (vocoder, sequencer). Many people have put this thing down, but it aint that bad. It's decent for the price. You can do some sound sculpting easily. One thing I have done is plug a radio into the input with some Japanese talk show and just heard some strange things. Its a fun tool. Its a keeper for me since I dont have money to throw around. I'm looking to get an Access Virus Indigo. Maybe then my opinion will change. One more great thing about the MS2000 is the yahoo site. It's quite helpfull. Bottom line, you get what you pay for.

terrible synth.

i owned this synth for about 6 months, and probably bought it because it was cheap or just from impulsion.

terrible distortion, delays, oscs and FILTERS. very limited mod matrix...bottom line, boring.

basicly sounds like a cheap VA, but with apropriate price tag.

there is 2 types of synths out there: 1- good synths 2- bad synths

and i think that the ms falls in the later because of the poor implemented efx, annoying filters and overall coldness of the sound...so people claiming it sounds 125% (hmmm..ya, er!) analog, better get their ears checked by an ear doctor.

i'll give it a 3 cus of the cool sequencer and knobs i guess, and because it's a good synth for trance, neo-country and polka.

I have to say for hobby-use its a fantastic synth though wanted to see more polyphony en virtual patch destinations also 2 arpeggiators would be nice. But for the me its good value for money. Only one thing i don't understand when having done a global and/or programme dump it can't get it reloaded. The display tells me its receiving data but doesn't write it in memory. Does anyone have a solution?
