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.

UTILIZATION

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.

SOUNDS

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.

OVERALL OPINION

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.

UTILIZATION



SOUNDS

For me it is one of analog having their own character. And yes, because it must be said some analos are close in terms of sound. Here one has to do a little monster bass terrifying, infra or not cutting of leads - which can sound very modern and I feel that this machine is currently in the machine that cuts, to apart. Frankly I thought this machine was limited to low and special effects and not at all, is much wider as possible! There must be some effects, light light, and there he takes off those pesky MS 10, he impresses me as much if not more than MS20.

OVERALL OPINION

I had the MS 20, MS 10, which are sacred machines anyway, and we really saying that the virtual analog are still not at that level, there is pure juice is powerful, well amplified and indeed there are lots of sounds possible. No papers? I prefer to thing the sound quality of the instrument! I think no one can be disappointed with this machine. Plus it's incredible reliability: 30 years and it works impeccable. KORG clear that it would be horribly expensive but terribly interesting. The MS 10 is also easier to use I think its big brother, the MS20 and it remains for me in the forefront of analos; of monophonic really in the top of the basket.

Korg Ms-10
2.5 octave monophonic keyboard static

UTILIZATION

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!

SOUNDS

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!



OVERALL OPINION

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

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

UTILIZATION

never seen the manual but this synth is simple to understand

SOUNDS

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!


OVERALL OPINION

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!

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.

UTILIZATION

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.

SOUNDS

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 ...

OVERALL OPINION

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.
