In defense of the Korg MS2000.

Post by japan » Sat Feb 16, 2008 4:25 pm

I'm the MS2000 lawyer, and i wanna share a good example of this little monster korg's powerful tools...the ms2000 doesn't sound like a rompler, but many people is like a ROM (read only mainstream).


Enjoy!

I learned subtractive synthesis on an MS2000. I really like them. Also, I figure if it's good enough for Rick Wakeman as a performance synth (he has 2), well, it's good enough for me, eh? :D

Same here, I had a Micron, but was completely overwhelmed by the user interface. The ms2000br helped me learn learning signal flow and the importance of modulation routings. I later traded for a microkorg, which I also found significantly easier to use than the micron.

Well, if you have plastic ears than sure, MS2k won't sound plastic in your defective evaluation. The video you posted has nothing to do with what I said in reference to MS2k. Noise generator spread across keyboard tracking? What the h**l. I'm just literally awestruck by its powerfulness and not sounding like a rompler. :P Everybody's got his own experience and preferences, shared by one group of people and opposed by another. If you like the sound of MS2k, live with it and be happy, you don't need to prove anything. I didn't wanna prove anything to anybody. I was looking for a bit of confirmation of similar tastes and feelings in this strange, hostile world. :P

Gents, there's already a thread about the MS2000 - please post in there.

Besides, Memo's video already has its own thread:
