The best of the Behringer clones
Earl Langoustine, 14.12.2020
Behringer's synth clones have offered high quality sound, but sometimes leave something to be desired in terms of form factor and color variation. The MS-1 is definitely the best of the bunch, by far! It really outdoes the Roland classic in several ways. The sturdy metal base is so nice and gives it good weight, compared to the all-plastic original. The build quality is top notch. The additional features (such as FM!!) would have been mods in the day, but are neatly integrated. The Crave style sequencer, which Behringer reuses here, is somewhat confusing, but not the worst thing in the world, even if it's only 32 steps compared to the original's 64 steps, but it's not a huge deal. Do yourself a favor, throw out all those old Squarepusher records and start writing your own future classics with the MS-1!

perfect for what it is
tsilly, 25.03.2021
I use this for basslines and acidic riffs (it sounds like 303!).

Almost 2 years now in my ownership, it still sounds great. Although plastic, it is very heavy and it feels robust.

The sound is very close to the original SH 101 (if not exactly the same) and the features that the company introduced (FM Mod, Triangle Wave, Midi I/O, Usb) transferred the instrument to today's standards.
In my opinion, the sequencer is a bit quirky to use (i sequence it form DAW) and it shoud have more steps per pattern, because 32 is very limiting

Generally, i think it is a good instrument that i am happy to look at and play with, but the time will show how well built it is.

Great synth for the price.
Paddy Mulcahy, 04.05.2021
After watching some A/B comparisons with the SH101, I had to go for the MS1. The sound quality of the synth is very very good, with a little noise floor.
The FM over VCF is a fantastic addition - but lacks a CV input to save you twisting the knob!

Integration with the Synthtribe app makes accessing back end features very easy.

One little issue that concerns me is how I hear a spring underneath the first A within first month of use.... The concern is that once I start to tour this instrument how long will that key last untill something goes wrong?

All in all, fantastic for the price and a great mono addition to complement my Juno 60.

Sounds great, very versatile and looks amazing
Theesus, 24.01.2020
Always wanted to own a 101. This is by far the closest I am going to get. Sounds amazing and has some nice extra features (love the FM feature for some crispy harsh sounds).

Also am very happy that Behringer made everything in full size, unlike the boutique roland version.

A++++
