I made this thread because a few of us got onto the topic of the MS-20 in the pictures thread and I wanted to hear/see more of what people here are doing with their MS-20’s.
It’s perhaps the most ubiquitous synth I’m aware of. You can spot it in use by so many artists, each of them using it for wildly different sounds, throughout the past 4 decades. The reissue is widely available and I’m sure it’s the first patchable instrument many people get the chance to interact with, and that’s such an inspiring experience that can change a person’s ideas about synthesis and sound itself. It’s my favorite physical design of any synth–it looks like it should be a prop in a 60’s sci-fi film, and it’s also extremely intuitive and malleable.
If you have any tracks, ideas, patches, or videos involving the MS-20 please share them!
I have not seen mention of Ippei Tambata’s MS-20 patches on this site, and if you have not yet seen his stuff you should check it out. He has made videos of hundreds of patches and most of them are really interesting and creative, with lots of feedback paths and self generative patterns. I’ve learned a ton studying what he does.
