I have seen one of these going cheap in a pawn shop and tempted to buy from all the research i have done on the module. New to synthesis and on a budget so buying second hand gear from the 80's and 90's. I have a roland mc-505 for drums and sequencing. that has SysEX , so will i be able to use all the controls on the Roland to programme the MS6?

The Cheetah MS6 was the first analogue synth I bought back in 1993 and I have never looked back. I have subsequently owned various Roland analogue machines and even a Pro One but when I hear the strings from the MS6 or one of my own patches through the mixer with a bit of effects my heart melts.. I love them so much I bought 2! Most of my material features the MS6 and even though its harder to program and can be unreliable - electric shock anyone? I recently had my internal battery replaced and services both. Truly an analogue great with sounds that are distinctive, I truly got the best out of this machine with a bit of time and some arduous programming but I love it.

got one from eBay, great analog unit with same CEM 3396 Chips as Matrix 1000. Ill rate it a five, as its really underratet in comparison to the allmost same thing Matrix 1000 that it beats in many belongings: multitimbral, CC# programmable (thx Kristofer) and sounds can be edited from the units front panel weaks: no volume knob (is digitally controlled), bad english building quality. I did some HW mods, as a fitted my unit with a standart power connector and fitted a cooler on the power regulators - think the keypanel has some weaks too.

Greetings from Austria, Markus.

Payed 250 euro about three years ago

Very good synth. Stable as a rock. Fully programmable from the frontpanel or with a software-editor. I own one. Lucky me!!!

It sounds a bit like the oberheim matrix 1000 but it sounds better. I sold my matrix and kept this wonderfull piece.

Sounds fit very good in the mix, unlike many other analog synths (to dominant/to silly to thin). Its multitimbral and thats a big advantage. 6 different analog sounds crying out the 80's sound. That makes the sun shin while its raining outside. Yes it does.

Smash your softsynths in the toilet and buy a real synth. I keep 'm till I die. It simply does the whole job in its own.

Nice sounding synth. Strings and pads are very warm.The best I ever heard. And I heard a lot. The rest is ok but not so outstanding. No midi control unlike the Matrix 1000 but fully programmable from the frontpannel. That's why I give in a 4. Payed 210 euros for this one last week. So lets stop talking and play some Tangerine dream or Krafwerk.
