“Well, its an … Analog box? This is a project that I put together a few years ago. It’s two Roland Synths (MKS-80 & MKS-30) hooked up to an analog mixer which has a real spring reverb. Each synth unit has a separate programmer. This project took some effort and fasteners. It’s all working. No major issues. There is one missing slider button on the MKS-30 Volume Slider. Also one knob on the PG-200 controller (lfo time) needs to be reseated from the inside. Used plastic washers and brass hardware to keep the ears in good shape. The case itself can be pressurized and used for air travel. All the manuals are there with the schematics. (I’m still looking for the MKS-30 manuals, so they may not be included). Connecting cords for each of the programmers are intact and in good condition. I took pictures of the serial numbers. This looks like the Rev 4 edition. Everything works, but this is older equipment. I’m selling this as is, but its been kept in good condition and smoke free while I’ve owned it. Oh, includes at least 2 memory cartridges (M64-C). And no, I don’t want to split it up… You’re lucky its altogether in one place :)” Link
“You are bidding on a Roland MKS30 Planet S Analog Synthesizer Synthesizer.This is from an estate so I am selling it AS IS. I put a power cord to it and it lights up as shown.Has some scratches on body and screen.THAT IS ALL I KNOW ABOUT IT. There is no power cord.” Link
Both are in great shape with very little wear and only light surface scratches” Link
As you may know, the voices on these synths tend to fail due to the voice chip coating degrading. The chips in this synth have already been treated (stripped of coating), so you shouldn’t have any unexpected voice failure! The battery was also replaced, so patch memory will be good for the next few decades.
Cosmetically 8/10. A few scratches, one chipped button and a small dent on the side of the PG-200 (pictured). Still beautiful, especially for it’s age.
The power cord and the cord for the programmer are included.” Link
“Classic Roland real analog – nothing else quite like it. Bright, warm and punchy – the MKS-30 is actually a very underrated synth. I guess because all us poor working slobs were relegated to JX-3P’s instead of the Jupiters we really wanted. But have you seen the price of Jupiters lately? So this 1983 era gem is as close as most of us mere mortals are gonna get.
The key is the PG-200 – that’s where the magic happens. It’s what turns this into an honest real time tweakable analog. This particular PG is in outstanding near new condition with no visable blemishes. The knobs and switches are still tight – it’s practically new old stock.
The module is also in very good condition with just the usual rash and surface scratches that comes with age. All lights light, knobs turn, buttons push, sliders slide and the led’s are nice and bright. More importantly (and getting harder to find these days) – all six voices fire wonderfully. Tuning is rock solid – outputs are clean. For a 30+ year old synth I’d say cosmetic condition is between 8/10-9/10. Functionally everything is a pristine 10/10.” Link

“This listing is for a Roland MKS-30 synthesizer with PG-200 programmer. Includes connector cable and user manuals. The PG200 has original case and packaging as well.” Link
“This custom piece was put together by the synth spa – fully restored on the inside with new voice chips and an awesome custom restoration on the outside – as you can see it is purple. At this point in time this is the only one of these I am aware of.” Link
