My only problem, KORG hasn't made anywhere near enough of these yet, they're rare as a bloody steak.

I give this synth a 5 because of how much you get for its price. Sure, you could get a JP8080, Nord Rack 2, Supernova, etc, and get more polyphony (and pay over $1300)..., but for about $600, this thing is amazing - awesome analog sounds, vocoder, sequencer, excellent interface, ext. inputs, and more... great job Korg!

Why the &%^& is everyone comparing this machine with others twice the price?? [Z1...where are the knobs?] The MS2000 is a great value for money because you get a synth,vocoder,mod seq. and externals ins for a pretty low price.

The vocoder is great and you can get some real Kraftwerk/Jarre/etc. sounds out of it.Also the virual patch is a good source for experimentation, you can patch anything to anything...many possibilities as you can imagine.

The phaser sounds really good and you can synchronise the LFO and FX-speed to MIDI-clock for rythmical changes!White noise thru the phaser ; instant 'Oxygene'...

I bought the keyboard-version for about $950 and i still have things to discover...

Except for the 4 note poly, this thing is perfect. I know the build quality could be better, and the wall wart sucks, but I got my keyboard for less than $900! What it really boils down to is the bang (or boom) for the buck, and this thing beats anything in it's price range by far. It's really not fair to compare features and specs with the Virus, Nova, or Nord lead, 'cause those things cost twice as much. But when I need a new sound lately, it's the MS I reach for now, over all of the more expensive units in the studio. A nice extra is that I saw it at the NAMM show in Jan., and didn't have to wait a over a year to buy it. Good job KORG.

hey its me again...i had a full week to play with it,and i cant belive im hearing bad reviews about it.i own a Z1 myself,and its without any doubt the best synth i ever own.but i needed a multipurpose synth to complete my set-up.i chose the ms over the nord micromodular.both were the same price,and the specs were very similar,but the ms's in-your-face editing won me over.so here it is...my pros and cons... things i HATE: 1.the manual..who the hell wrote that thing?,its the dumbest piece of trash ever wrote. 2.the power adaptor,you know the one,big ass wallwart style,hee-haa. 3.built quality,belive me,its no russian tank! 4.the little square key keyboard,not velocity sensitive,they are made of plastic...when you go back to your keyboard controler,you feel your riding a Rolls. things i LOVE: 1.midi in-out-thru,you dont see that often on "modern" modules, 2.audio ins,vocode,filter drum loops...hours of twidling! 3.internal fx (distortion and time based),the distortion is ok,but the delay is superb,a really analogish feel and sound! 4.the step sequencer,this is(imo),its best feature.its simple,but its 3 part sequence modifiers are awsome...very weird and creative! create a line,freak it,sync it to a drum beat..cool and unexpected results..i love it! im recomending this unit to every frequency-freakers out there! see ya!
