    UTILIZATION

    Ergonomics, simple or even simplistic at first glance ... But, in fact, far from being that simple. A system that is "modular" semi-cable IDAL for those who want to explore the world of subtractive synthse: no cables, you can create some sounds with wiring, you start Modular imagine you would be well.
    In short, the top-level philosophy.
    The manual seems succinct but is the philosophy of dpart: sr it must do some work to will appreciate the bbte!

    SOUNDS

    Just for filtering it to be MRIT cit. Both filters can SERIES sounds that can mimic Minimoog, ProOne, SH ... For my compositions, the sound can be dirty and greasy as soft and smooth to me like a glove, I draw what I want (except, of sr, when I imagine the head be a modular) ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use the MS20 since 1991. I sold in 1993 to pay me a half box and finally acquri again in 1998. I am fully satisfied and never wants me dbarasser
    +: Grain, Ergonomics, Look
    -: This is not a modular too bad, there is a Vostok awaits me!

    SOUNDS

    Sounds? The MS20 is the most violent synth I've ever heard is a real resentment that s'chappe of this little machine ...

    It is capable of anything, from the time when the agressivit is required, thus making it a machine INTERESTED trs for many things (FX crazy, sounds Technodes), but in turn imposes also have other synths to balance things ...

    For example, for low tasty, warm and powerful, I prfre my Moog Prodigy 1000 times ... it does not have the opportunities dixime modulations of MS20's up to you ...!

    Do not forget, when a achte MS20, was a two-in-one, since he can swing any source ... guitar, bass, bote rhythms, voices, etc ...
    he gives his personality all that goes into it ... and is not ngligeable because you can end up driving envelopes duly by a guitar solo ... or modulate the Golfrapp voice as ...

    In any case, it is a VERY strong personality is machine sr!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I do not use it long enough to boast of having been around (guys who for 20 years say they have not yet made the rounds of all fawns ... ) but what I am sr is that it is a machine for the express trs INTERESTED, and even if it is a bit surct today cel is an excellent investment for whatever musician express ...

    UTILIZATION

    For someone who does not have a basic understanding of synthse, the first sight is not empty. Fortunately, the original manual is clear and trs examples of patches are donns INTERESTED. After one hour, we understand the basic concepts and within a few days, we come to "think MS20" CRER sound that was in the head ... The pleasure is in search of sounds to the point of sometimes stay on for hours without producing any music but s'tre bored one second.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds: standards for those who like Emerson, Szajner, Shulze the years 75-80. Do not try to sound ralistes with MS20, it is not in a. On the contrary. IDAL is for low-tech (with SQ10 is perfect) or spacey sounds and other effects spciaux. The inputs allow processing of other instruments that are giving away boxes of effects. The weak point is the keyboard way too plastic. If coming out on Korg MS20 with a keyboard dynamics and aftertouch, they would be a misfortune ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought my first MS20 in 1981, and another the following year. To control has had two SQ10. I complt all by a VC10. Everything looks the same, what!
    This is the ultimate synth. We start from nothing and you get what you want, provided the master bte. For the initiation synthse, there is no better and the price is the one not far from the sound of the modular. O In the era I'm spar (for lack of space and time), was worth nothing and now they are found to the price of nine ...
    I console myself with the Korg Legacy Collection, which is missing from the default hard (rglages instability of sensitivity, congestion) but adds polyphony.

    A semi-modular analog factory 78 83.
    The sound is plutt stable, not too taken argler head, while keeping the cot in the living research synths of the era.

    A possibility to return the external filters, and an external signal detector, converting an audio signal into signals:
    - Filtrbr amplifier /> - Gate
    - CV - frquence of Note
    - CV envelope

    It sounds unnecessary, but playing a little can make lots of sounds.

    Only regret ... no CV for rsonances, a single output for the mod wheel cbler .. Once the modular taste, we always want more done.

    the keyboard would MRIT an octave higher (and would have room to add more jacks ^ ^)

    the keyboard would MRIT an octave higher (and would have room to add more jacks ^ ^)

    When the production quality, no complaints. Mtallique body, potentiomtres enjoyable turn, keyboard just right, rather pretty hard case (yes it's a gimmick, but a gadget that I quote) but heavy trs.

    UTILIZATION

    Ultra simple set up, the only point that MRIT to open the manual is the use of the sample & hold. Finally, for me, but I have a habit of some kind of synth.

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are top, good variation on a grain trs brand filters that saturate Fawn fun ... for clean sounds in against it will look elsewhere.

    Prsence good in low but there be a monster.

    In fact it has a synth sound trs typ it like it or not. In addition, I understand (a confirmed) that the sound of dpendait MODEL that we had, and some sounded bad trs. Briefly, a try, see if you like to or not.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I love a little prt everything, and I reproached him for having given just want to spend the true modular.

    Come on, I insist once again on the interface, which is a joy to use. everything falls to hand, is IMMEDIATE RULES, even change the pitch for deuxime oscillator, for which I had some anxiety, is quickly RULES.

    A synth with a rating on the market opportunity is quite leve, he used t by many known and reputable groups has driven prices. It''s the only default, but it's still cheaper than analog rcent, which offers MIDI can be everywhere (and it is a joy throughout the South, the CV it will be tired very quickly), but this will not sound prsence specific to older hardware.

    Advice to beginners: if you do not forget to buy a MIDI-CV converter at the same time if you want the squence from a PC, and Verify the number of cable available bte the patch.

    UTILIZATION

    Mega fastoche everything is accessible, everything is visible, you just need to understand the synthesis ... it's even with the MS20 I learned.

    SOUNDS

    - The sounds they agree with your style of music?
    Sure
    - Are they realistic?
    This is the best joke of the manual, when providing patch to the sounds of oboe or piano hahaha! NO, not realistic, very synthetic and it is better that it does!
    Please note the sound is not fat (like moog), there is a big diffrence between a moog and MS20, like between a gibson les paul (humbucker) and a Fender Start (single coil), the 20 ms is drier and brighter.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been good 15 years ago that I have bought it 1500 Francs (just 200 Euros) in a perfect state of running, my first synth and it has changed my life. I think the MS 20 is great, because you can easily find it friends (SQ10, MS50, MS10) so they play together and that has made a pseudomodulaire cheap. Today the price of this synth is totally unfair, and those who sell for more than 500 Euros should be ashamed ... for 950 you can have 2 new Blofeld !
