I have bought an MKS 70 for 380 Euro on ebay - last year, now i got another one! :) Crazy, but i really love this synth! Wanted to make sure i will have one working if the other one will ever fail. VSTi - it's just great for the dropping prices on the REAL analogue gear! I got a PG 800 too and now i'm in Heaven! I also own an MKS 80 but the MKS 70 has something extra !

I've been using the MKS-70 in combination with the Roland Gk1 pickup and a Fender Silver Anniversary Strat for studio track recording for the past 10 years. There is still nothing to date that can compete with this sound module. I highly recommend getting the latest rom version,1.08 (free from Roland)and adding a Roland PG-800 programmer. The pg-800 allows the user to fully access all of its potential sound variations. This is truly, a vintage synth for the books!

Mks-70 is great analogue synth module. Strings and pads are its strenghts, leads and bass sounds are good. The price of this and JX-10 is incredibly low at the moment. And people are buying vst synths.. hmm..;-)

Some common Mishaps about this fine machine.

YES it has pulsewith modulation ,only not on both dco lines. Switch crosmod to position 1 tune both dco's to same pitch , select square wave and open lfo to pitch slider to modulate dco2, hey presto PWM.

The mks 70 and jx10 are not just 2 jx8p's bolted together, they have a function over the 8p that is vital in synthiworld, the filter res fully oscillates, not on the 8p.

Ive owned about every analog on the planet , including all rolands and the mks70 is probably there best achievement, does every type of sound well (ALSO basses if you can program that is) , very sleek and wide sounding, very prophet 5 rev3 type brass. Pads are better than anything from oberheim that i owned (tjee that OB8 was no match for this) and they are CHEAP compared to other polys. typical around 450 USd for mks 70 with pg800.

A software editor is not a substitute for a pg 800 , be sure you get the programmer or you wil never get the best out of this machine.

All of the rolands (jupe 8 , sh5,jupe6 etc) lack an organic sound or sound to electronic (sh5 is incapable of anything else than sounding like a 1976 version of reaktor software) BUT the mks70 /jx10 are the exceptions.

Really a must buy for the synthlover.

take care

This synth excels at creamy smooth textures and pads; very little spike or attitude, but excellent for sweetening a track.
