Korg MS-2000

Intro: The Korg MS-2000 is an excellent sounding analog modeling, aka virtual analog (VA) synth. I use it when I need a full, warm analog sound. Unlike most VA synths, which can sound harsh, brittle, too digital, the MS sounds rich and retro, the good kind of retro. There was the original metallic-teal keyboard version and rack version - I have the MS-2000R rack. A few years later the black models came out with new sounds and an XLR jack for a gooseneck mic.

Good: The sound is warm and full. It emulates analog patches very well. Lots of buttons, knobs, and lights. Great editability of voice patches. Nice real time controls.

Bad: It only has 4 notes of polyphony. It only holds 128 voice patches at a time. These is no media slot for storage, so you have to load and save voice patches by sending midi sysex.
