MGR/Alan's review"Korg MS 2000"

Korg MS2000
I bought this synthesizer on ebay and payed about $450. After playing one at a local music store I had to pick one up.

The Korg MS 2000 offers the wonderful classic analog sounds of the past while mixing with the updated digital technology of today. The MS 2000 offers everything one needs in a synthesizer. From a 16 band vocoder to a MOD Sequencer to an arpeggiator, along with the ability to plug any sounds source into the module to tweak and manipulate any sound you like on the 44 key unit, the korg does it all. The Korg also offers MIDI in out and thru connections to sync with your computer or other midi devices. With so many dedicated knobs for modifying sounds, you don't need to be bothered with the paging through windows on a tiny LCD screen. The endless sounds of the LFO's and EG's along with the virtual patches alongs for any musical style to be created. From sweeping synth sounds that emulate Pink Floyd, or the synth dance sounds of the eighties, to pop, rock, techno. Whatever style of music you enjoy creating, the MS 2000 will work for you.

Honestly there isn't much at all I do not like about this unit. Regularly priced from about $700-$750, the price seems a little steep. At first I didn't like that many of the sounds were monophonic, but then I realized that you can changed whether the notes played are monophonic or polyphonic within the keyboard.

The unit is made with beautiful wood side panels along with a sturdy metal construction of the rest of the body. Even better yet is that the unit is very light, so there is no busting your back carrying around a big 76 or 88 key keyboard that weighs a ton.

Great sounding synth with many combinations of sounds. Past to present the korg covers your style.

Korg MS2000
The Korg MS 2000 is a analog modeling synthesizer that has about a three octave range. It has a pitch wheel as well as some modulation sliders. It then has knobs to scroll between different presets, and to control different parameters of each. It has 1/4 inch connections, as well as MIDI connections. It has all types of analog synth presets, as well as the ability to make and store your own sounds. It has full polyphony, but can be set to just be monophonic.


The configuration and set up of the Korg MS 2000 is quite easy to follow, and only takes a little bit of use to figure out what everything does. There is a good amount of control available, and presets are convenient and useful. I have never seen the manual for the Korg MS 2000 , but it is easy enough to use that you shouldn't need it too much. However, since there are a decent amount capabilities, it can be useful to have the manual when learning the in depth features.


The sound quality of the Korg MS 2000 is top notch and is great for any type of music that you would like to use analog synth sounds with. I use it mostly for pop and rock, and always find that the sounds work well with what I am trying to do and are overall realistic sounding. The keyboard itself is easy to play and I like the way the pitch wheel is set up. Overall, I'm a big fan of the presets and capabilities that this synth has.


I've been using the Korg MS 2000 for about two years and it is one of my favorite analog modeling digital synths of this size that is on the market. The preset sounds are really great and there is a great amount of control available over your tone. The price is definitely reasonable, as this is a great instrument. The only reason it is so cheap is because of its small size, which I do not mind. Overall, I highly recommend the Korg MS 2000 .

Korg MS2000
3.5 octave keyboard, plutt average quality, but we do not ask him to have a touch of piano)
Full of controllers, and it's nice: 2 VCO, filter, 4 matrix modulation, distortion, ... and of course the two old wheels that do more Submitted.
7 banks of 16 sounds (fates calculation) in styles that Varis plutt "retro" overall quality trs but honorable. And given the possibilities of the machine, it is att to the string or bass we need.

Basic effects, can be a bit too, but the machine is really thought in the mind of the old monophonic synths (IE MS20 not to quote!) But adding the possibility of publishing and some flexibility work.


In fact I never opened the manual, so I can not criticize dcemment
The edition is a breeze, moult controls are accessible directly by the little buttons all round, and the flexibility of working gal that has the quality of treatment.

Do not expect the keyboard is a basic, but it's good basic trs.

I think it's a machine for idalie nophytes souhaitaqnt address the synthse. It includes all the basics and we quickly found there (condition of being a little needle by an insider or follow the manual while the letter of the same).

Come on, just a minor complaint of the same, the buttons do not inspire great confidence. That said last year that I torture, they hold up.


I was looking for a monaural that is flexible and fast paramtrable in real time, which kind of good bass, tablecloths or effects, and above anything wrong, that's exactly what I find the fallait.On and the grain of old keyboards, organs, synths of the 60/70, the basslines all convincing.
The voccoder is just the icing on the cake, easy to use, and opportunities INTERESTED (choice of carrier and deuxime between the source between external and internal stamp ... )
it is a basic vocoder, however, do not expect a rvolution of the ct but having so many controllers on the machine makes a voccoder "" "Analog" "" tr s fun.


One year I bought APRS have always amuses me much, since even if I went around fairly.
Currently, for about the price, there are however microQ of Waldorf, who plays more in the big leagues. But I remain convinced that through its ct fun and well thought out ergonomics, the MS2000 is an excellent machine for anyone wishing to learn the synthse.

If you are looking for a machine that sounds kind of torture with unusual stamps, drop on the other hand, and direct you to the microQ plutt Nord Modular or both of which are more or less the same range in price.

Korg MS2000
Keyboard 44 keys (very lightweight which allows for fast solos trs :-))) Synthse analog modeling, a pair of stereo outputs, one audio input, polyphony of "only" four voices (damage ) and weight trs light (7 kg I think) nice for transport!


The use and friendly .... we know what to expect when achte this type of machine ... need a little grind sound to get the sound you want or just presets trs also good for most! For effects there is the delay but no reverb malheureuseument !!!!! It is in dire need a good multi effects! The manual is quite easy to read!


I think sounds good trs (admittedly it's not a Nord Lead ... but not the same price range either) and then can the 'traffic' until get the desired sound .... so no worries ;-)


Use group for about 3 years and no problem ... fulfilled its role honestly!
