Korg MS2000B
We Can Get It Fast!

Old Skool Analog-Modeled Synth!

The latest chapter in the 25-year history of the Korg MS series is here. With an amazing sound set, a sharp black metallic color scheme and dedicated vocoder mic, the MS2000B provides a combination of playability, expression and sound manipulation that is at once familiar, yet ready to open a new universe of possibilities. Korg MS2000 Analog Modeling Synthesizer at a Glance:

  • Powerful analog modeling system evolved from Prophecy and ElecTribe
  • A collection of awesome waveforms
  • Supreme sonic control with filters, LFO, and effects
  • Retro features including vocoder and arpeggiator

Powerful analog modeling system evolved from Prophecy and ElecTribe Korg's DSP-driven analog modeling system - acclaimed in the Korg Prophecy and Electribe·A - has been refinedin the MS2000 to produce an incredibly wide range of sounds. From lush to fat to sharply cutting, the awesome sonic spectrum produced only by this DSP technology is harnessed into a compact keyboard or module. All of the MS2000's major sound parameters can be accessed in real time from the knobs and switches on the front panel, allowing you the freedom to manipulate and shape your sound as you play. A collection of awesome waveforms The MS2000's oscillator section consists of two oscillators and a noise generator. Oscillator 1 lets you select from eight waveforms, including analog staples such as sawtooth and pulse, to unique selections like VoxWave and 64 DWGS (Digital Waveform Generator System) waveforms first featured on the Korg DW-8000. Modulation can be applied to each waveform for an even wider timbral selection and to create movement. Oscillator 2 on the MS2000 lets you select from three types of waveforms. In addition to detuning Oscillator 2 relative to Oscillator 1, you can also use it to apply sync or ring modulation to generate complex sounds. The audio input jacks allow external sound sources to be processed by the internal filters, effects, etc. Supreme sonic control with filters, LFO, and effects With two oscillators, four filter types, an envelope generator, LFO and effects section that delivers three simultaneous effects, the MS2000 is overflowing with sonic creation possibilities! Retro features including vocoder and arpeggiator The MS2000 comes dressed up with retro-style rosewood side panels, and it's packed with other great features of the past, including a versatile 16-band vocoder, and an arpeggiator offering six types of arpeggio patterns. Korg MS2000 Analog Modeling Synthesizer Features:

  • Analog Modeling Synthesis System with 44-key controller and vocoder mic
  • Programs: 128
  • Two-program multi-timbral (split/layer), 4-voice polyphonic

Korg's MS2000B Analog Modeling Synthesizer/ Vocoder is the epitome of value: a full-featured analog synth and a sixteen-band vocoder for well-under $1000! The MS2000B is here for anyone needing a great quality modeling synth and a premium vocoder in one package. Included with the MS2000B is a dynamic gooseneck mic for use with the vocoder, a wall wart, and the manual. The included mic is huge, but the manual is equally important: it's well organized, easy to read in a sitting or two, and very comprehensive- just like a manual should be! The MS2000B has two main functions: analog synth and vocoder. The block diagrams of each function is right on the front panel for easy access during performances. Korg has included lots of oscillators and modulation sources for almost infinite possibilities: two main oscillators (one of which can use the waveform of a line or mic input), four different filters, delay, distortion, a modulation sequencer, an arpeggiator, and lots more! One of the coolest features of the MS2000B is the virtual patching function. The four virtual patches allow you to custom route eight different modulation sources to control parameters from filter cutoff to pitch, giving you even more creative potential with your sounds! The factory presets give you a great first look at the possibilities of the MS2000B. From synth leads to rhythm parts, modulation sequences to effects, a short look at a couple of the banks will leave you drooling for more. For some, the presets can be slightly tweaked to get desired sounds, but others will find the presets to be merely the groundwork of their creative possibilities. All of this, at a price that just about anyone can afford! Unlike most of the competition, the MS2000B isn't going to break the bank account (or max out your Sweetwater Card). Good for electronica, dance, rap, composers, or sound designers the MS2000B is sure to give you creative tools- and tons of fun- for years to come!
