What can you say. It is very similar to the PPG machines of the eighties. It is great for ambient wavetable sounds. Difficult to programme. Get a manual with it thats for sure. Used by Aphex Twin and Aqua Blue Music.

Its quite a steep learning curve but (much like FM synthesis) if you put the time in the results are awesome, a couple of hours fiddling with it and you should figure it out (unless you are a total retard!) So all you kiddies who think its crap, well thats your loss, because it is capable of some truly huge and nasty sounds ideal for lofi techno ala AFX etc (I think it was used on windowlicker) also it can create some beautiful atonal sounds ideal for chill space music, run the thing thru an analog filter and it kicks the ass of the Microwave, you can set some extremely complex wavesequences and even weirdo percussive loops. I have had no reliability problems with it mine is running V1.1. Finally you can open it up and reprogram the eeprom with new waveforms if you have the knowhow, the standard waves are mostly PPG anyway. Definately worth looking out for if you like strange sounds but not for the "me too" groovebox boys.

Cheap wavetable module with very unuser friendly programming. Poor build, with 2 rack wings. Not much more to say, as I launched mine out of the window into the rubbish.

User UNfriendly synt brains custom sounds programming will make you mad unless you're Assembler specialist sometimes it hangs like a PC but makes good long waveforms. Put a finger on a key and keep thru all the composition it's a pity that Cheetah company is dead. MS800 could become a father of real monsters

If the MS6 is a MemoryMoog then this is a PPG wave, get the picture?. worth messing with if cheap enough though hardly awe inspiring
