compared this with a nord lead 2, access virus b and an an-1x.

the nord sounded thin and unimpressive (although lack of effects and an extremely low-volume phones-output could account for that) compared to the ms. the virus sounded warm and fat (thanks, no doubt, to the filters and the build-in reverb which has a sort of 70's quality to my ears). the an1x was more polite-sounding but with much 'creamier' (ahum) strings.

the ms-2000 sounded both agressive and fat, with a real analog quality - i'd compare it more to a mono/poly than the ms-20 on which it is said to be based (i owned the ms-20 and a friend has the mono/poly): great for a certain agressive type of bass-sequence and atonal fx - buy it for that. nice build and looks, lots of lights.

great bass-synth.

I disagree with Fredericks comments. I have taken my ms2000 apart and saw a whole lot more than "a chip the size of a grain of pepper..." The rosewood panals on the side of board ARE REAL WOOD (maybe he does not know what he is talking about there either). Yes it has only four notes of poly, but that can be fixed if you marry it up with the rack as Korg intended. Also it sounds quite a bit different than an An1x. What does he expect from a $850 synth? I think that Frederick was having a bad day. How can we get his "review" off off the first page. I would say that it is an awsome buy for someone on a budget. I think the sounds can be pretty thick after a little tweaking from the user. I think that it is a good VA for the price.

I have owned the MS2000 for a few months now. I can tell that I will have this synth for a long time. I see a lot of people slamming it as well as praising it. I can tell you from personal use that it has the "PHAT" sound that I am looking for. I picked mine up for $800(a good deal) brand new. For 8 bills I get a vocoder, a mod sequencer, more tweakable peramiters than I need, and a midi controler should I need it. The presets are alright pending on what you are into. The may be small but they stand up to my abuse. The wooden side panels were a nice touch. It may only have 4 notes polyphony, but stacked up against my Oberheim OB-1 and Rogue Moog (monophonic real analogs), I get four times the polyphony than I ever had before. For the complainers... If you want real anolag beef and more polyphony, STEP UP TO THE PLATE and buy an OB-8(~$1K)or Matrix 12(~$3.5K) or an Andromeda(~$2.8K). Just remember, it is all about the person behind the weel.

Never worry about "mixed reviews" when you can always trust your ears. Of course the presets blow...I hate 'em, too. It took only a few knob tweaks to "send little Elvis skyward." Ya see, I likes giraffe noises, and this little green gem really delivers them in droves. I run Casiotones, shortwave radio and microphones through its built-in vocoder & delay. No, it's not as "deep" as a Virus or AN1x, but it's FAR easier to navigate. Too much fun for you and your kinfölk alike!

I was a bit worried about buying this synth, mainly because of all the mixed reviews on this site. However, after taking the plunge, I find it absolutely fine. I don't use it for dance based music, and have started plugging guitars and pianos and stuff through it as well as experimenting with the onboard sounds, all I can say is that some of the users who are unhappy must be 'preset' people and expect to plug in and play - I have tested various other new and old analogue synths and find this one well worth the money
