CatSynth Pic: Korg MS2000

Handsome black cat with a Korg MS2000 synthesizer. From our friend synthguy216 on Instagram, who asks “why so serious?”

The MS2000 is in the lineage of Korg’s MS-20 and MS-50, but uses analog modeling, and offers 4-voice polyphony. It was released in 2000, and combines the MS-style mix of pre-wired patching with very accessible real-time knob controls and a patching matrix via the LCD screen. There is also the MS2000R rackmount version.
