A lot of thesee reviews unfairly compare the MS2000 with expensive alternatives (ANX1, JP8000 etc.). I think the MS2000 is a cracking synth and once hooked up to a Kaoss Pad, sounds awesome!!! Oh and by the way an MS2000 and a Kaos Pad comes well under the £1000 mark!

I'v had my MS2000 for some years now and a while ago I tried to sell it. I had never really got beyond the presets and couldnt coax any decent sounds out of it. Due to the money I'd loose selling it secondhand, I've decided to keep it - especially after reading the Analogue Synthesis Wizzo guide book (ISBN 3-927954-37-3 - I'd recommend it to beginners!) which has helped me a lot to understand a bit about analogue synthesis and get to know the MS2000. I am now getting some great sounds from my Korg. I also own a Nord Micro Modular and the modular system is still a bit beyond me at the moment. Many people will say that there asre better synths out there but they usually reffer to either software or £1000+ keyboards/modules. Whilst the MS200 doesn't do everything and is only 4 note polyphony, these are small things to pay for a well priced synth.

I have MS2000B, for 1 year and did like it from the first moment,the only thing that bothers me a little is the mod seq tempo is not in sync with my PC tempo and it seems Korg can not do someting about it anymore,so when recording you need some sampling experience to chop it or do a remake of the patch with controller events in your PC sequencer, it will follow sync perfectly when normal use without the mod seq on the synth itself.The arpeggiator lacks of possibilitys but for me its no problem, there enough arpeggiators in my software, so its done from there..sometimes this synth goes deep in tone, like having to much bass now and then, but when using onboard EQ it helps, it really can blow your speakers, and you can make very aggressive bass with this one! its also nice for leads,sweeps and ambient textures, the knobs feel nice, they are small and feel a bit loose but for me its no problem I handle this synth very carefully, this synth is also an accurate controller for Reason btw.The manual included is perfectly layed out,very understandable even for a beginner, all in all very good synth for its money its easy to start tweaking but it needs some effort and experience to have a good result,sometime I sit in front of it and need 2-3 hours to have a cool patch,but then its COOL!!!Dont forget this motherf**r has a second timbre to have more power to your sounds,endless possibilitys, just amazing synth once you go deep into it!

also...forgot to add this earlier, but i use mine for industrial and 8bit sounds, heh so don't be thinking that the MS is only for trance and those dance genres. Also the MS2k yahoo forum is a great place to go for more info and the people are very friendly. -heh hope this helps even more

the ms2k was my first "real" synth and i must say it's a great synth to use to get the hang of programming, also it has great sound capabilities. The polyphony sux, the filters are a bit digital, but all synths have their little quirks right? but all in all the ms2k's sound is very nice, and for the money, sound and the inviting programming knobs (knob changes also are in realtime, plus MIDI data) it's a good deal if you want to make certain sounds. Just make sure you know what sounds you want, then see if the MS can do them. Also that book by Wizzo, Subtractive Synthesis is a great guide to help ya get into synth programmin. Heh i would never part from my Ms2k, hope this helps ya. --slug
