MARION SYSTEMS MSR-2


via this auction

"Ultra rare used Marion Systems MSR-2 Modular Synthesizer rack. This one has 2 voice boards installed, total of 16 analog Oberheim voices in a tiny rack! 16 part multitimbral too! This little guy is powerful, look up the specs. The mod matrix is deep. This is not the watered down ProSynth which looks similar. This has to be the smallest analog rack with 16 voices. Tom Oberheim built very little of these. This synth sounds amazing, I haven't heard anything online that does it justice. It also has an input to run audio through the Oberheim filters. Its running the latest OS. Its easy to edit from the front panel but there is also an editor that you can download. This synth shines when you layer the sounds. For example, you can run a pad and bell patch at the same time and it sounds like a analog D-50. You can also put the voices in unison and then detune for massive sounds. It responds to velocity and aftertouch which is awesome. Comes from a smoke free home. Comes with the original rare power supply."
