The MS2000 is a virtual analog synthesizer with a metallic blue case and wooden side panels. It has a built-in vocoder with formant shift and is powered by a 9V external power supply.
The MS2000 was also released in rack form as the MS2000R. A later revision with a built-in vocoder microphone and a darker case was released as the MS2000B. Its sound engine was reused in the MicroKorg, but without all of the realtime control knobs.
