« a real legendary instrument »Published on 07/20/11 at 10:34
At same time as this can make you smile, this as such, says it all.
For those who are lucky enough to have a copy or original, the manual comes with leaf patches made with the found sounds such as game arrow and the result is not always convincing, it was necessary to use a little imagination in 1980, to find a piano sound at the time, but hey it was not for that either.
This machine has just a huge sound, it's pure analog snores bass ... to try it is a good experience. When I compose and I'm missing powerful color, it is there, quietly, to give grain and it works in the mix. We play this machine as a guitar, triturated (attention to the speakers as still there are frequencies that are very very very low) and it sometimes takes us where we do not send it, but it's really instinctive, very nice.
As soon as we managed to set it the analog is a pure pleasure for those who love the sound, it's intuitive and very typical. Keyboard is solid and pleasant, a little patch .... ... experimental.
I've had synths for over 20 years and this machine is in the studio from a friend who got rid of it for 500 francs (€ 75) to buy a DX7 ... I had the nose at the time. It is a machine to treasure, I've never had a problem with it.
Try it, do yourself a favor if you can. Do not buy without trying .An MS20 likes it or not, and given the weight of the market price is not a trivial purchase. The fingers work the sound and the ear will do the rest, it's an experience ... very pleasant and very musical.
