This is a great synth. A modern classic you could say. 4-450.00 on ebay these days. Theres really not many synths that can move the way the MS2000 does. It's like the poor mans access virus :P This synth is extremely tweakable. I recommend it for the PLAYER, not so much for producers. If you need to do some crazy stuff onstage, and need immediate access to all parameters, this is the synth for you. Great and highly recommended for industrial/trance/psy-trance/experimental/and hip hop music. For the used price, you absolutely cant beat it. It's built pretty solid, metal casing or whatever, iv gigged with it for a few years. The knobs and pots are really pretty good quality, i put mine through some extreme amounts of tweaking, and never had a bad pot or midi message. However, i am an extremely heavy pitch wheel user, and i stripped mine from the spring. But i am buying another one. If you want to sound unique, this would be a good way to go, all the knobs are very facilitating towards hours of fun tweaking and sound design. Very intuitive, virtually nothing is hidden in the menu, its all right in front of you. Very easy midi setup. Just a simple,great sounding box that become whatever you are capable of molding it into :)

£220 s/h for this...! Cheaper than a Microkorg sells for new! And even they're a bargain themselves...

I own/have owned loads of analogue synths so I have a fair idea what they should sound like, and this thing does it REALLY, REALLY well but has the added benefit of modern technology/reliability.

OK so it won't exactly replicate EVERY vintage synth, but who cares?? So much for such a low price. You can make so many unique, beautiful sounds that would hold up in any professional recording or performance. And it's just so damn FUN. Only real gripe is the polyphony (I am not a piano player, I'm a guitarist, so I don't care much though), and it's possibly a bit lighter and flimsier in build quality than, say, my Polysix. but this is also a plus point as it's easy to lug about.

What an inspirational tool. Don't listen to the gearsnobs who claim this can't do analog or isn't 'phat' enough. It can... and it IS. If there was a synth from the 70s/80s with this breadth of features and this sound, it would be revered by the very same gearsnobs. Heck, most pianists scoffed at analogue synths when they first came out... old stuff is 'always' better apparently.

The more you play around and tweak, the more you're rewarded. For me, that's just what a good synth should be about. Conversely, it's the sort of machine even my non-musical friends can come round mess about with and enjoy - the vocoder is always a crowd pleaser :)

Can you tell I like this thing? I've used a JP-8000 a lot too, and it's a *great* board with many advantages - but the MS-2000 definitely has more.. hmm... soul(!)... something I didn't think would be possible with a VA.

bought mine used (cheap), been using it for a year. sounds good. i'm not sure why a digital synth should sound like an analog, never tried to make it sound like anything but itself. been using it for hi/low-frequency noises, static and feedback and it performs well. experimental ambient etc. the resonant filter is nice (not analog). fx are cheesy (especially the mod fx) never figured out how to use them for nothing. definately got personality.

The Korg Ms 2000 is my first hardwear analogue. I bought it about a month ago. I was very impressed with the quality of the sound and the many functions. It is great for my industrial dance project .Being as I only worked with sofsynths I still need time to fully understand it. Ive been having problems with recording sequences, if anyone has any tips please wright back at

I bought the Korg MS2000B a few weeks ago. I have played with a couple of VA´s before so it was really easy to get into this one. The interface is bloody amazing. Very easy to use. And the sound of this monster is absolutely top-notch. The most analog sounding VA I´ve ever heard (after my dear old Virus). Great work korg!!!
