Korg MS2000R Analog Modeling Synthesizer Module
Since its introduction in 1978, the Korg MS Series of synthesizers caused a sensation by its sound, looks, and flexibility in sound creation. More than 20 years later, a new MS instrument is born, fusing the functionality of the SQ10 analog sequencer and VC-10 vocoder that were also part of Korg’s lineup. The MS2000R Analog Modeling Synthesizer simultaneously returns to the origin of synthesizers and opens a new universe of possibilities.
Unparalleled Analog Modeling Power
The tone generator of the MS2000R uses a DSP-powered analog modeling system. The analog modeling system acclaimed on the KORG Prophecy, Z1, and Electribe Series has been refined to produce an incredibly wide range of sounds. From sharply cutting to powerful and thick, all the awesome sonic power that can be produced only by DSP technology is packed into a module. All major sound parameters are arranged on the front panel, allowing you the total freedom of manipulating knobs and switches in real time.
Back to the future
The MS2000R is dressed in a retro teal blue body and is packed with great features, like a powerful built-in 16-band vocoder and an arpeggiator with 6 types of arpeggio patterns.The arpeggiator, Mod Sequencer, and LFOs all sync to MIDI for ultra-cool rhythmic effects.
The EG (Envelope Generator) that applies time-variant change to sound parameters uses a familiar 4-parameter ADSR (Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release) configuration. The LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) used to apply cyclic change to sound parameters allows you to choose from 4 types of waveform. Two EGs and 2 LFOs are provided for each timbre.
The MS2000R provides 4 types of filter: 2 types of low pass filter (-12/-24 dB), band pass filter, and high pass filter. Resonance is provided, and can be adjusted into self-oscillation.
The effect section provides a modulation effect (3 types), a delay with 3 selectable types, and an equalizer. In addition to volume and pan controls, the amp section provides a Distortion on/off setting so that even soft sounds can be transformed into aggressive solo parts.
Virtual Patch function allows wildly creative possibilities
The MS2000R provides a “Virtual Patch” function that simulates the patching capabilities of the legendary Korg PS Series and MS Series synthesizers. Not only EG and LFO, but even velocity or keyboard tracking can be used as modulation sources to affect parameters such as pitch, noise level, and pan.
Mod Sequence function generates dramatic tonal changes
The Mod Sequence function applies time-variant change to sound parameters in a way similar to varying the control voltage on an analog synthesizer of the past. In addition to the 28 parameters on the front panel, you can apply time-variant change to the pitch or step length and adjust it in real time.
This Korg MS2000R is in Excellent Condition and Had Home Use Only. It comes with it’s Original Box, Manual and Power Supply.
