MS10, MS10, MS10. I have had my Ms10 for a few years now. it was given to me by my x girlfriends mother who found it in her loft when she moved into her new home, and what a find it was. When i first viewed this little monster the Image and retro appearance of it struck me like a bassball bat. After getting the little beauty back to my studio I powered her up only to be greeted with the most inhumane screech my monitor had ever experienced.

The filters in this baby are sweet and the ability to treat it as a semi modular is a welcome and creative tool. I find that the pitching is pretty free as after long periods it tends to float out of tune but that just ads character since it doesnt slip too far out.

I have my MS10 permanently connected to an RP6 digital guitar effects unit and use all kind of effects on it, some of my faves are wah wah and subtle distortion.

I have used it to drive the leads on many of my releases and it actualy led the bass line on my first ever commercial recording.

I purchased an MS2000 today and got her home, powered her up eagerly expecting to hear the beauty of the MS10, I was dissapointed in that respect. I guess if you want a mono synth that is superior to the MS10 you can only choose an MS20... nothing else compares in it's class. Bravo...

what can i say. my band is in awe of this little black box. in conjunction with with our roland juno6, ms-2000, electribe, mpc200, also guitar bass and live drums. we are able to give the world our paticular version of sonic death.

This machine is the greatest noise making mono-synth that i have ever clapped my eyes on. mad whooshing noises galore, fantastic sine and one of the warmest bass drum sounds we have ever used(fine tuning req'd)

when we stole this from the physics dept from our local high school we had no idea what we had on our hands.

looks like a machine from the future. sounds like a machine from the future.

our entire out-fit is a love affair with the ms-10.

I got my MS10 new in 1980! I love the thing and definitely wouldn't sell it, though to me these days its uses are limited. I used to put it through a chorus pedal and echo unit which really fattened up the sound, but it was always a case of trying to make up for the lack of a second oscillator. Main uses for home-recording for me these days are for sine wave modulation effects and white noise sweeps - I've sort of rediscovered it in this respect and its likely to be featuring more heavily.

I owned this synth for about 6 months. After that, I really didnt use it much anymore. It sounds nice, but not as powerful to me as everyone else hypes it up to be. It can get a nice squelchy sound with the filter resonance turned up, but the basses that came out of it were way to muudy for me. Its a good 1 VCO synth if your in the market for one, but I just stick with my Micromoog now as I feel nothing else can touch it. I'd say the MS-10 is a decent 1 oscilator sytnh at best. Nothing amazing to me but thats just my opinion. I liked the way it looked better than it sounded.
