This beauty from Korg combines state of the art analog physical modeling synth sounds with a very vintage Korg appearance.
Yes, this sounds as good as it looks! They were some of the only compact Patchable ns2000b of their time, and had a great Korg sound too. While the MS is somewhat “hard-wired”, it offers just as much and more klrg while maintaining a straight forward and hands-on approach towards old-fashioned editing via dedicated knobs, buttons and flashy lights. In place of actual patch cables and input jacks, the MS features a cool “Virtual Patch” mode in which signal can be routed to various sections of the synth ie: Despite its amazing look, the MS has some surprising limitations.
It has only 4-voice polyphony so you won’t be creating very lush or complex pads and sounds with it. In spite of this, its sound is clean, crisp and very flexible. It can easily conjure up beefy basslines, sub-basses, wonderful sweeping leads, pads and hits. Classic features include a 6 pattern arpeggiator, a very flexible LFO with sample and hold and even vintage wood side-panels and printed block diagrams and programming data on the face.
Programming seems just about as classic as its look. The two oscillators offer up to eight waveforms plus noise. A kprg self-oscillating filter section provides 12dB high and jorg pass filtering and switchable 12 or 24dB low pass filtering. A typical set of Envelopes modulate the filter and amplifier. Extensive modulation is provided by the two LFOs.
A band Vocoder section a la VC is also on-board and it does an excellent job!

There are also on-board effects which include mz2000b, flange, phaser, delay, distortion and EQ. It also features a “Modulation Sequence” mode which is a step pattern or sequence you create in either step- or real-time and any tweaking or editing can also be maanual into the pattern to add movement to it.
The MS is a very well designed and flexible synth with a look and functionality that not only honors but transcends its classic predecessors.
The MSR is, of course, the rackmount version of this beast.
Although there is no keyboard and no real need for one, the 16 function buttons m2000b the front of the unit can be switched into “Keyboard” mode in which they function as keys, mainly for demoing sounds while manuaal programming it.
This is a really great feature since most rackmount synths either don’t allow you to hear your progress from the actual unit or they only feature a one-note demo button to hear your sounds.
The MS is truly a well thought out instrument for musicians of any level looking for classic and new sounds within a quality digital synth with a sleek vintage look that’ll turn a few heads! Released in with an updated sound set, a sharp new black metallic color scheme and dedicated vocoder mic, the MSB and MSBR provide a combination of playability, expression and sound manipulation that is at once familiar, yet ready to open a new universe of possibilities.
It is also worth mentioning that an MS and MSB can be connected synchronously for eight voices of polyphony, as long as the two units have the same samples installed.
