Marion Systems MSR-2Published on 05/13/07 at 03:04

This is one of the last synths designed by Tom Oberheim awesome! ! ! (Oberheim brand no longer has anything to do with its extraordinary founder Tom Oberheim).

I've had just 24 hours and did not record so I will proceed to the amendment of the notice subsequently. (See below)

- Rack 1 U
- 2 midi in, midi out 2,
- 8 voice poly and multi modulated by oscillating with 2 per voice (sawtooth, square, while the two modular waveform or pulse width) of oscillator sync (the MSR-2 may contain two modules but mine therefore contains only one for me 8 votes)
- Real 12-24db/oct analog filters, self oscillating mode 24 dB
- ADSR 3, 2 ramp, 2 LFO, matrix 10x10

- ADSR 3, 2 ramp, 2 LFO, matrix 10x10
- Two separate outputs (but there is also a connector which I do not know yet the implementation), two input sounds
- Bright 2-line LCD
- Two encoders
- Equalizer output patch

In short, a Matrix 6 improved ergonomics and possibilities.

Alim separate

etc ...

UTILIZATION

Without instructions I get to edit and create the sounds I want less than 24 hours after the release of the box ...

Both encoders are quite practical as well as their management is very good for (rapid deffile soon as the encoder and run faster in a quarter turn, one can reach the maximum parameter positf or negative and 0 is mostly hard readjust to normal in this type of edition, there, it saves a lot of time).

SOUNDS

- On paper, it looks a lot better but Matrix6 in its level is quite different: the MSR2 has a much more present than the Matrix 6, while a sitting gardan impressive in the bass.

- The analog filters 12/24 db clean and beautiful are just especially for the size of the machine.

12db mode, it gets a presence, a éppaisseur super smooth and pleasing to the ear.

24db mode is self oscillating from the 3 / 4 of the adjustment range (so be careful when passing the resonance of mode 12 to mode 24 (2 pol/4pol). This mode greatly Rapel sound filters ARP, a resonance massive sound still present and a clean and beautiful sitting in the grave.

The MSR2 (unlike the Matrix 6) has a really big character Oberheim! Maybe one is coarser than the Matrix 6 in the acute,

The cutoff can be modulated by an oscillator to make the FM or make the sound a bit more granular or FX for quite formidable.

The only weak point is that if the machine has a pretty good dynamic in the whole, the ataque envlopes are not fast enough and lack of impact on the percussive sounds, but appears, solved the OS2 (d Besides, if someone could help me out here dessu, it would be cool).

Unlike the Matrix 6, MSR2 has a monophonic mode and two modes of unison.

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using - 24 hours ...

What I like least on this machine is that I have the old OS and therefore the portamento is not great and that the attacks may have a mole.

I have a lot of hours synth hands and I must say this one impressed me at the grain filter that is truly magnificent 12 db 24 db as in with a very large difference in grain between the two modes.

If I had known it was a MSR2 I aurra a long time! ! !

Matrix is ​​a six improved and more ergonomic and grain very different, very different from the Xpander also a lot fatter LP24db on MSR2.

Tom Oberheim has done it again with this machine very hard especially in the 90's, good polyphonic analog machines were not common.

Well, three years later, I return added a little audio clip fast they are so rare, in addition, there is no cure or even to 0 db:
