Excellent Synth.
*Theo E*, 11.03.2020
I bought this synth with not much expectations, and I was surprised how great it sounds! And I do not mean just as an SH-101 clone. Behringer added 2 controls for the FM manipulation of the filter frequency, pushing the, already dirty, sound of the original to the extreme! The "reese" style baselines you can get out of this thing are extremely fat and gritty!!!

The rest of the synth sounds like what you'd expect from an SH-101 clone. The filter is juicy and you can get expect to get all these beautiful resonances, that made the original popular.

Another great feature is the sequencer, which provides more options and flexibility than the OG. There's also a velocity adjustable "accent" which offers another degree of expression.

My only concern is that the fader shafts on the chasis, have no dust protection film (you can practically see the board inside), so you might have dust settling in! My suggestion is to always cover the unit when you do not use it.

All and all, the MS-1 has grown on me, and although it doesn't have a tone of parameters, you can get great sounds out of it, very easily.

i use ms-1 to my home studio
this is analog beast
behringer = value for money
the quality looks good and behringer updates firmware
the manual is poor but you can find a lot of informations in rolands manual how to create sounds.
if you dont want to stay home for next few months you should not buy this machine.
Behringer MS-1-BL means inspiration. so be careful !!!

Love it!
gwEm, 29.01.2020
Has exactly the same feel and 99% of the same sound as the SH-101. I love the way it sounds in my productions and the colours also. Its heavy and is physically of good quality.

One major negative point is that the firmware is not good. The built-in sequencer has many bugs and Behringer has not released an update yet.
