Korg Ms-10
The Korg MS-10 is a vintage analog synthesizer that was originally put out in the late 1970's. It's a monophonic synthesizer that has a keyboard that spans 32 notes. It's actually got it's own 1/4" patch bay that's built into it, just like the old modular synthesizers, which I think is incredibly cool. It's got one VCO (voltage controlled oscillator) as well as an LFO, VCA, and filter. It can get a pretty much endless variety of tones, but you can't save them since it's all analog here.


Operating the Korg MS-10 is probably going to take a little bit of time to get used to, but of course that all depends on your level of experience when it comes to analog synths. If you've never used a synth patch bay before, there's definitely going to be a little bit of a learning curve here. Otherwise, the parameters are broken up into easy to understand sections and shouldn't be too hard to break it all down without the help of the manual.


The sounds heard from the Korg MS-10 have made it a popular vintage analog synth for a reason. While not as versatile or complete sounding as a vintage Moog, it's got it's quirks and specialties for sure. I like it a lot for it's bass sounds, but it's got some nice leads on here as well and definitely covers just about everything in between. As with all analog synths, it really just depends on what you can do with it, as the MS-10 is certainly capable of getting all sorts of awesome analog synth sounds.


I don't know readily available the Korg MS-10 is nowadays, but it's still a great starter synthesizer for anyone who is interested in analog synthesizers, regardless of your level of previous use. I really like messing with the MS-10 because it's about as simple as you'll find a true analog synth and really has some awesome sounds. The MS-10 isn't going to cost you nearly as much as some other vintage analog synths will, so it's definitely an option worth considering for anyone in the market for an awesome analog synthesizer.

Korg Ms-10
It has 32 keys, regular size (which is good 2 and a half octaves), it may seem little, but overall, for bass lines and leads, it is enough. There is a knob on the left of the keyboard whose function may be assigned by a patch cable in the right section (VCF, pitch, ...)
It has a single mono output.
The sound editing is easy too. One button = one function! No memory, no USB connection, no D-Beam, And that is good. It is a monophonic analog for someone looking for a synth to learn the basics of subtractive synthesis works. But old-timers will also enjoy it because with its construcion semi-modular, these are hours of fun trying to find new sounds.


As mentioned above, very simple. There is only one VCO, filter, ADSR ... and much less opportunity to patch as its big brother the MS-20. We found it right away, there is just the patch section which can be a bit confusing for a beginner.
The knobs respond very finely. A small movement of a millimeter can vary the sound drastically.


This little synth is not to be underestimated. Far from it ... It has only one osciliateur, but it can sound very big. Its filters have the tendency to leave very quickly self-osciliation and give the impression to go even further. This opens new possibilities of sound.
Ideal for bass, or leads, but also powerful special effects, sound effects of all kinds of kicks, snares of ...


I use it for 6 months, and I have not even been around as possibilities are enormous. I love his look in such control desk station, her big knobs that invite you to put your hands, and big sound very nice. I also like its stability once it is heated, its strength and respect it imposes a time a sound came out. I like the less noise the keyboard, sometimes requiring up the volume on his return he is so strong ... but it's a detail. We currently on Ebay for almost nothing. I would buy eyes closed.

Korg Ms-10
mono synth, 1 oscillator 1 filter, 1 LFO, in short, simple!


never seen the manual but this synth is simple to understand


I use it primarily for bass sounds, and he does very well whatever the style! very used to pop and hiphop ...
goes from low to basic infra Dante ...
no aftertouch Velocity or course ...
stabs in the mix sounds much lower than in the treble melodies.
with his character! Music always!


I use it for a dozen years with happiness.
I became the bass synth!
I tried before buying the moog korg, korg but I find the most honest, simplest and least expensive! at least until ...
I love the monophonic (one note replaces another) that allows a particular game on bass.
I like the tuning less difficult and not on any regular keyboard, but it must come from his age!
value for money at very good prices and I bought it. now its premium ...
With experience, this choice I will ever ouiiii! I love it!

Korg Ms-10
2.5 octave monophonic keyboard static


the interface is very intuitive not requiring manual.
the creation of sounds is immediate.
do not forget to note the parameters of its creation, because the animal has no memory!


everything is possible between the patches and the rotary oscillator, I used it to create sounds, Raffale, helicoidal, wind, rain ... from both its playable too!


I do not have room for now in my new home, but it goes away quickly remake a!
its simplicity of creation of its many and varied.
Yes I will ever buy this
