the manual is essential for a beginner.
It has analogue characteristics, but with his own signature.
The MS20 is the best gift my father gave to the 16 year old teenager 16 that I was ... 3800 francs back in 1980 it represented a healthy sum! I did not know very well exactly what was a synthesizer, and the MS20 introduced me to this world of such beautiful electronic instruments. Of course this is not a MOOG, it has no punching power to lead or bass. But it's a great synth that can draw fascinating sounds, for anyone who will lean on. Ah, I've spent hours trying to route signals through the "patch bay"! It deserves to qualify as a "Learning" synth, but it also has specific sonic qualities that make it recognizable. It's a real boy wizard, the MS20! Like all analogies, it works wonders as soon as it assists some reverb or delays, so do not be disappointed at first by its "dry" side a bit, if you listen to with no effect. It was in the belly! No wonder it is still sought after today ... on the other hand, its going second hand price seems excessive.
