I am not sure how current this is. Estimated prices seem low/fair. But wants to sell it as a single lot.

The high bidder must think they're bidding on a real analog MS synth. I've seen these controllers sell for less than $150. WTF

Wow, that sucks... it's basically useless without software, isn't it? High bidder is going to be pissed, but I guess it's their own fault for not reading the item description.

I'm pretty sure it can be used to control other soft synths, but still.........

yeah, there's it looks actually like three different idiots responsible for the up-bidding. Low-feedback count or no, nothing excuses not reading the text (or um, the title? :roll: )
Do you even post on vse bro?

I would like to be a fly on the wall when they discover the horrible truth. Do Guinness have a record for the angriest person in the world ?

Actually, the more I think about this, the more I can't stop laughing. :twisted: Mean & cruel I know, but I can't believe someone (actually more than one person) can be that stupid.

Regarding the MS 20 legacy device:

This is assuming they don't know what they're buying, but I have a feeling they do know, and wanted it.

A point was made in another thread, that this might be a reversal in the soft synth mentality of wanting more tactile control, hence a return to something that looks like an old design.

Then they're guilty of way overpaying for something they want. These things aren't very rare and are definitely not valued near $1000 usually.
