Good but not good enough.
Io Eko, 29.01.2020
I never had the chance to play a real MS-20 so my opinion is clearly with the K-2 in mind. This is by no means a comparison.

Sound & Synthesis:
- The oscillators and filters sound great.
- The envelopes have a very weird behavior and sustain is not behaving like the sustain we all know and love. This is the case with the original MS20 it's not a Behringer issue.
- There no gate input as it should be considering that this is Eurorack compatible. To trigger an envelope an inverse signal is required so keep in mind that you 'll need a trig converter if you plan to use it with Eurorack.
- The relationship between the max and min behavior of the modulation knobs seems so unstable and unpredictable. It's really hard to find those sweet spots.

Overall design and structure:
This is by far the cheapest of Behringer's synth creations.
- The chassis itself is pretty good. Same as ModelD and Neutron.
- Kobs feel really stiff. I mean really stiff. Some times it's so hard to turn them around that my fingers often slide around the knob.
- The MIDI input doesn't look very stable. I have the feeling that if I'm not too careful while patching a cable in and out I could end up damaging the connector.

Yes, I love my Neutron, ModelD and Deepmind 12 but this looks nothing like them. I think I should have bought the Pro1 instead. Not happy at all.

Portable AND Powerful!
Roderick Leviton, 22.10.2019
An amazing product yet again by the Behringer Team! They nailed the sound of the MS-20 with this version. I already have the Korg MS-20 Mini and I must admit that the sound is ever so slightly warmer sounding, while the K-2 is more "New and Crunchy" sounding. Difficult to explain but they really are "familiar sounding" and you will not notice the difference in the "Final Mix/Song".

If you want a portable desktop version of the MS-20, then definitely grab the K-2. It's built like a tank, the same as the Model-D and Neutron.

The ONLY con is that the K-2 ONLY came with 2 x Patch Cables. So when you buy this item, make sure that you pickup a few extra patch cables to have fun with. Luckily, I still have a few from my Neutron and MS-20.

Amazing sound for such a small footprint.

I HIGHLY recommend the K-2 as a GREAT PURCHASE! You know you want one!

Top synth
Pedro the communist, 26.02.2020
Behringer its doing such a great job with this new replicas, and the k-2 is not the exception. Great quality building and connectivity. Looks cool on black (way hot that the red of the"neutron") And finally, the sound, it's pretty nice. I used for drone and ambient, textures and sound landscapes. Pretty amazing machine for not much of money. Also good for people that want to jump in to modular synthesizers.

MS20 in module form. Solves space issues in the studio and provides both filter types. Type 1 moves into distortion easily, sounds raw, at the cost of some noise in the audio path. Type 2 is more tame, but still squeals, and has no noise. Having both is great, use as needed.

You do lose the modulation wheel from the original design. This may or may not bother you. Build quality is pretty good, knobs feel great in use. I do have one jack that works but clicks loudly when a patch cable is inserted. Also noticed that the octave switch on VCO2 will throw the vco slightly out of tune (difference between perfect and slightly beating), I don't think its calibrated perfectly. But it's an analog synth, I'm willing to forgive this stuff.

If you are looking for MS20 sound, I'd pick this up. Recommended, does the job, nasty.
