For the MS2K's intended purpose of being a Virtual Analog Modeling Synthasizer, it boasts virtually anything you would want in a VA Synth. My reason for not giving it a 10 are because of the limited 4-polyphony and the quality of the keys.


The MS2K is very simple to use. The abundance of 30+ knobs gives you total control over your sounds. A larger display and less sub-menus would have been welcomed.

The Korg MS2000 is a very frail machine. The keys are very cheap and light. The knobs are fine for the fast twists I often like to do... but the mechanism underneath the knobs (internally) could have been stronger. The real wooden panels on the side werre a nice touch and rest assured, this will be a coveted vintage synth someday.


Absolutely amazing. A monkey might get on this thing and crank out better sounds than your first try. The sounds are rich and phat. Almost too easy to impress someone with the results. The built-in vocoder is one of the best I've heard, the bass is extraordinary, and the effects are sick!


I intially bought the MS2K for flash web development (sound fx, vocoded mouseovers and fx, beats) but I found myself making some pretty cool music with it. In fact, it inspired me to buy a second keyboard, a Yamaha Motif.

And there are three different versions of the Korg MS 2000
The MS 2000
MS 2000 R (rack)
MS 2000B (with microphone XLR input on the front and all presets rework)


The manual is well written and clear.

For the nod to nostalgia, and unlike the 37 keys of MS20,
the MS2000 / b has 44 notes F C, similar to Monopoly that is strongly inspired look at.

The display is a backlit LCD with 16 characters x 2 lined, this is sufficient.
MS 2000b also provides a good virtual patch matrix with 50 switches and 35 buttons has very logically on the front panel.

Operation is easy and very effective for classifying sources of destinations, if you find really quickly.


The sounds are very versatile, and often enjoyable, leads basses, pads, arpeggios, and vocoder robot to the devil.

I mean obviously not all presets MS 2000.
Those are the best MS2000b program and also gives a good starting point for experimentation.

Sometimes the lack of polyphony can be felt but with features offering with 2 oscillators + noise generator, with 8 waveforms for the first and 3 for the second, with 2 EG and LFO 2 for each stamp, four types two types of filters low-pass filter (- 12/-24 dB), bandpass filter, highpass filter and with resonance and self oscillation, a time, an arpeggiator with six types of arpeggios compensates for this and really gives a real freedom to create sound.

The sequencer provides similar functions SQ10.
And 16-band vocoder that is based on emulating the VC 10 is to my taste slightly better than the original.


Buy new at the time of its released, never regretted.
MS 2000b is certainly limited compared to four-voice polyphony, but thanks to a very logical control surface, sound overall pretty nice, plus other features to think well, it's still a very complementary to synthesize scene or in a studio.

For amateur synthesis also a good start, because it is very easily accessible with many controls and diagrams printed on the front.

The +
Good surface controls
Creating sounds easy
Good sound for a VA
All buttons transmit MIDI data
Audio input for processing external sounds

The -
Limited polyphony
Step sequencer does not come via midi

Korg MS2000B
Ba is the analog modeling.

a descendant of the famous MS10, MS20 and MS50, mutated into a beast offering a nice analog emulation ...


Very simple, however if the user knows what he's doing!
some knowledge in computer is required but not required. it's always better to know what a vco, vca or an lfo ...
short! yaka Taté ... it's still good


Big sound, strange noises that can be grown from the throat of the beast ...
padz of the most sophisticated classic ... everything is prog ... then up to experience.

The step sequencer is not bad. damage, however it is not very intuitive and it does no more than three "tracks", the experts will be what I mean ...

if I like her moans, her screams and especially his tit 'personality that attracted me!
excelling quality / price ratio.


Yes. choice again.

That said, the modeling does not replace the analog. com Partou are good and bad ...
