Super sound, not the best processing ...
Christian A. 173, 08.12.2013
I have been using the Synthesizer for over 3 months now and find the sound after getting familiar with the device and knows what you want and how to get it. Noise is for me in the absolutely non-interfering area.
I think that people who complain about the sound or a "ground noise" have not dealt with what this is for a device. Combined with other synths and drumming machines and connected via CV and / or Midi with many other devices, you can make really crazy things. Good bass leads in the low-mid range, leads, effects, more extensive sounds ... Much is possible (maybe not with the MS-20 alone, but if you use the patch field or if you have other devices as said. .).

Drumsounds or other external sounds via the ESP section with the MS-20 to twist or the filter to make a real joy. It is a wonderful addition to other current analog synths like the MiniBrute or the Doepfer Dark Energy, since the sound is different from these two and very characteristic. (I have just set up for a production (film soundtrack with gloomy mood): MS-20 for dark, deep arpeggios and effect-like sounds, mini-bars for higher arpeggios, leads, nicely modulated melodies, DarkEnergy for deep bass positions as And a MicroKorg to insert pads or filling material and the film-noir soundtrack commissioning is finished)
In connection with modular systems, one must ensure that most systems work with 1V / Oct, but the MS-20 (as with the original) with Hz / V.

The processing I find not worth mentioning bad, and at the same time not particularly great. The MiniBrute feels, for example. Much more solid and robust, MFB devices and the newer MicroKorgs, on the other hand, a bit rattler than the MS-20 in comparison.

The small keyboard annoys something, but feels quite solid. And with a Masterkeyboard you can dodge anyway.
The potis feel good all by themselves and have more or less the same resistance when turning.

The patch patch patches are a bit disappointing. It only looks as if they are all fastened with a nut to the front panel. In reality, the fake and the jacks are soldered on a circuit board and any plugging around probably directly loads the solder joints. So here, with the time and with intensive use, small construction sites could be created. But it should not be a problem to repair it, it should really come so far. Only the headphone jack is made odunk and screwed with the plate. This shows that the device was not really designed for hard live and road use.

Oh, but the prevailing opinion seems so that via USB-Midi the note commands are sent. So you can record the Midi track with recording.

Ok, so much for that. I find the MS-20 great and can only recommend it. After a short training phase, he is extremely fun.
