Well it's not strictly true that it's 100% patchable - for instance you can clock the LFO or

control PWM or control envelope parameters. But it is a GREAT synth and the fact that it's 'normalled' so you can make sound

without a bunch of patch leads is a big plus. I LOVE mine too.

This is THE analogue synth among analogue synths. I LOVE IT! _Fat_ sounds and 100% patchable. Could it get better?

After using the MS-20 for twelve or thirteen years I have to say that this is one of the best analogue synthesizers ever made. It´s practically perfect. After you´ve learned how the patchbay works you just sit patching for a year or so before it starts to really sound good.

In the band I play we use two MS-20:s and often hook them up to eachother for more fun. The results when you can expand the MS-20 with another is quite exiting.

Moreover it has a signal input which allows it to be controlled from another source. I mostly use a Casio FZ-1 and because of that I don´t need any midiinterface - I can control the MS-20 without midi and still use Cubase. This can be quite hard to accomplish cause the signal input is quite strange and I´ve figured out that some sounds works better than others. Try to use a sawtooth wave and as clean as possible! With a little thinking you can also get the release to work this way. I´ve just bought a Kenton Pro 4 so I don´t use this kind of connection anymore, but I did for a couple of years and it´s really working. I also have to say that if you´re looking for analogue drumsounds, this is the machine to have! I just love those Simmondssounds but they´re better if you do them on a MS-20.

The definitive poor man`s modular, loadsa patching (via a rather confusing patchbay), two simultaneous filters (lo AND hi) both with screaming resonance and an excellent grungy sound when the oscillators overdrive the mixer/filter. Prices are rising and rising so grab one now!, more use for SFX and Basses than as a lead synth (believe it or not the PWM equipped MS10 is better for fast screaming leads!). Onboard pitch to voltage converter converts Theremins/guitars etc to the S-trig/CV system and you don`t need to use the MS20`s onboard sounds to use it, just whack the Converters outputs into your Mini/CS/Monopoly/MS50 etc. The MS20 is the heart of a complete matching system comprising of the MS10 (singe oscillator with PWM), MS20, MS50 (modular add on xpander with 1-osc and loadsa special modules, VC10 MS10 sized mini-vocoder and the SQ10 3X12 Analog sequencer with all sorts of possibilities, this lot plus a couple more MS synths would scare a lot of real small modulars.
