I have been trying out keyboards both at the Guitar Center and Sam Ash because I want to add a synth to my rig.

The MS2000 is hands down the best $400 synth on the market for trance, progressive, house, dnb, and even ambient and experimental electronic music like the new sasha album "airdrawndagger."

Many complain that it is flimsy, which is definitely true (look at the the electribes!). However, this machine can dish out every type of synth sound that you would hear in a dance club.

Stay away from the rack version -- no keys! The ivories work miracles on the keyboard version when you turn the arpegiator on.

I was playing some wicked riffs in the store and had more than a few of people come over to see what I was doing. I wasn't sure if they were complementing me on my playing ability or the sound of the synth. I am not the best keyboard player out there, but this thing made me sound 10 times better than what I really am.

This is going to be my next piece of hardware.

this synth kicks-butt! but i must admit that the bass kinda breaks-up and you have to eq it to make it really boom.but if you bought it just for bass id say you made a big mistake-as you should have bought a sci pro-one instead for the money..just remember if you want low freqs get a true analog,if you want great midi sysex,presets,and new sounds get a v.a.-there is no synth that does it all.the ms2000 really reminds me of a monopoly in a big way,the low-pass filter sounds like the monopoly quite a bit-even looks kinda like a monopoly! which i think is really great.of course the other filters in the ms2000 sound really good.the poly is a lil low but if you use it as a performance lead machine you shouldnt complain.just doing pads/strings would be nice to have much more poly of course.the vocorder sounds really good and is much fun.the unit is built pretty good but seems a lil fragile-so be carefull,in fact i think it weighs less than a sci pro-one.there are millions of patches on the internet for download ,so finding or creating good sounds is almost impossible!

This is a great keyboard! r3z4r3ct must be trying to do something to sound like a "normal" keyboard, i've done some very exciting pads so i don't understand this guy...better if you spend more time modelling sounds... Useful, new sounds, (it is a kb not for substitute any moog but for bring some new cool sounds), nice to look at, afordable, what more can i say?.

I`ve owned this synth for a year now. And i use 1-2 hours almost ewery day to program new sounds. I`m stil not tired of it yet. Ok so it only got 4 poly, 2 osc. SO WHAT!!!! If u are going to buy just 1 synth in your lifetime, this would not be the one, duble or triple the price, and your there. But if you, like me just want to add more sonic texture to your studio. BUY THIS!!!! It emulates almost every clasic analog sound. The mod seq and the patch bay are very useful features. I`ve made some very interesting arpeggios combining mod seq and arp! AWSOME. It is not the best VA i own, but for the money....... i dont think it gets any better!!!!

Well what happens if you combine a vocoder, mod-seq, and some classic sounds? You get the MS2K! this little quirky box is so much fun to play. Not only does the MS2K sound great, it's really affordable *to most of us at least* and the bass, oooooh bass *drools* this little fun box gives ya plenty. Well before buying or judging the MS2K, be sure to try it out and spend some time with it. Don't expect a lot of the "bread and butter" but expect some of the most fun you'll ever have with a new VA. Whether you're a professional or a hack synth player, be sure to look at the MS2000.
