I own a Marion Pro-Synth (has the same synth engine as the MRS2) and it has become my main synth in the studio!! (i own about 10 synths!!) It´s probably the best buy i have ever made, because you can get this synth for about 250 Euros. It beats most synths like the Nordlead, the Juno 106, etc. You have perfect control on every parameter (and there are a lot of them!!) - the midi controllers work perfect. I have read that this synth is the only alternative to a OBXa/OB8 and i have to say - this is almost true -you can get the classic OB sound oút of this machine (and a lot lot more). Check out the 4-voice mode (8 OSC at the same time) and make one phattest synth tones out there. Perfect tool for techno, Drum´n Bass and 80 style Synth-Pop - the sound rules!!

I absolutely love this synth, i traded my tb303 for it...and it's so much better than the 303...even the slight lag time is GREAT...it makes it sound really analog when yer seqing a few channels on it...it makes the sound pulsate in a sense...it can do virtually any sound you could dream up....it'll just take some programming...i've used many many synths...and this one is top on the list...i have no gripes with the unit whatsoever:), beautifal sounds, i've made perfect 303 emulations, 808 kicks, 909 kicks...lots n lots n lots...the most surreal tranced out sounds...i love it to death....i'm gunna buy another:)

Great machine. The famous Oberheim-sound in a 1u rack. There a lot of parameters to tweak your sounds with, this lets you program weird noises and 50's scifi movie effects. Programming killer basses is easy, but strings are a bit tough, though. For strings, you'd be better with an AN1X.

There is an 8 pin connector provided at the back of the unit which let you connect an external sound source. The incoming signal can be routed to the Marion's 2 or 4 pole filters.

The overall sound is typically Oberheim, so you must like it if you consider buying one second hand. I got one for FREE, but you can find them for about 300 euro.
