Value For Money : Correct
A rack in a not nice setup, but weighs like an ass, very deep (deeper than it is to say large!)
The MKS-80 is a great 8-voice polyphonic (2 CSO by 16 votes so CSOs) with identical characteristics to the legendary Jupiter 8.
We can add a memory card that store messages and nicknames MC64 64 sounds which favors its use on stage.
It's a heavy beast and shielded so it can be carried on tour, because it is also very stable for an analog.
It is noon, making it a great synth.

UTILIZATION

Using zero. You need a separate editor or command. There are free editors on the net ... but otherwise it is very difficult to program.

SOUNDS

This synth is very much under rated! For 800 EUR you can find MS20 monophonic or other kind of SH-101!
The MKS-80 POLYPHONIC is, it can be very powerful keyboards, tablecloths typical fat roland, synth brass style 80 years, but also tons of original sounds.
The MKS-80 with a great sound, and other than that it is ugly, it sounds like a JP8 (only the purists are aware of the difference in a mix is ​​identical).
As there are few pure analog synth, stable, with MIDI and more polyphonic, the MKS-80 for a very reasonable price is a special place in a studio-based vintage!

OVERALL OPINION

Synth indispensable for those seeking a polyphonic analog for less than 1000 EUR, except with the programmer is found no less than 1400 EUR which changes quite a price, a price that can be a voice of Andromeda 16 poly analog effects, full of buttons, a keyboard and sequencer.
Roland is inimitable sound, the strings, brass and other keyboard sounds a great deal provided by a compressor and effects.
