What is your opinion of this product?
This synth rewards exploration. If your new to synths look up as many MS20 patches as you can, try them all and tweak them. Sooner or later you'll find a setting that gives you goosebumps; guess what? Now your stuck with it.
The unit also rewards experimentation. Yesterday I got the wild hair to hook up my Beat Buddy drum machine into the external input, wire one of the outputs to the HFP input and turned on the drum machine. When I'd play a note it had an underlying heartbeat (provided by the Beat Buddy), it was dark, ominous and absolutely magnificent!
Quick note: if you do some research you'll find some reports on noise through the headphone jack when a note is played. True, somewhat. Depends on the headphones. I get some noise with my Shure studio headphones, but not my new Fostek T50RP.
