“Cheetah MS6 synth with MAAD upgrade and in nice condition – it is unusual to see the top graphics still intact on the MS6, but my one for sale here has the graphics still in place. Unit has a few scratches here and there, but is definitely one of the best you are likely to find. Works perfectly, all buttons work fine, all voices checked and work fine and it stores patches in memory, fine.
Lovely sounding synth with a big fat and ballsy analogue sound and you can stack sounds on top of each other x 6 for insane fatness. MAAD upgrade allows or you to program it from midi cc (I used the free editor for Ableton Live and it works great).
This is from my personal collection of synths and has never given me a moments trouble – it’s a good one.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I purchased this as part of a bulk load of hardware from someone who was producing back in the 90s on the house scene and having a studio clear out. I kept the pieces I wanted to keep and reselling on the things I don’t want. (See other items for sale)

The MS6 came as part of that bundle with an intention to sell as it was something that I wouldn’t use (I make Trance music).

It had no power plug on so I fitted a plug and powered it on. It powered on and it had four 8s, turned it off and then back on and it had two ‘8’ and then none.

I got an image of the screen on but after that there’s nothing on the display but you can hear that it’s powered on when you switch it on.

I think it is due to the internal battery not holding enough charge, but I’m not an expert.

I’ve opened up the unit and can see the battery has leaked which from reading up online is a common thing to happen with these units.

I can also see that one capacitor has broken in half next to the battery. I presume that’s due to the battery leak.

I initially bought a replacement battery with the intention to replace it however as the original one has leaked on the board I don’t feel confident in doing this job myself. My soldering skills are very basic so don’t want to chance it.

It could be that the bigger capacitor has leaked too. I’m not entirely sure.

My intention was to replace the battery (which I do with any gear I get) and hopefully it would work before selling on

Given this and that my intention was not to keep the synth anyway I’ve decided to sell it on as it is for someone who can hopefully bring this back to life.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Original manual included
Item is used but I’ve tested it and it works perfectly at time of testing. The front panel looks ok (see photo) but there are some scratches on the top and the lettering has come off of the parameter details in places (see photo). However it is still possible to read the parameters and there is a supplement with the manual which provides the same info for programming. Housed in a rack these marks would not be visible. Is capable of a wide range of classic analogue synth sounds and can be used multi-timbrally for sequencing”

“Very nice condition for an MS6 and fully working. Only noticeable marks are around the rack ears, and you don’t see those once racked up. Very clean inside too. I replaced the battery last year and it still has the factory presets in it, have just used a couple of the string/ synth pads really. Have tested it edits and saves new sounds, however. You have 5 banks of ROM presets and another 2 for user patches.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Cheetah MS6 Analogue rack synthesizer – this is an awesome machine, 6 voice multimbral, 1u rack and generally wonderful all round.

HOWEVER, there are some issues with it; firstly, the last digit on the LED display doesn’t work properly, flickering rather displaying a stable value. Secondly, and more importantly, there’s an issue with the power supply – connect something to the audio out and all you get is what sounds like a loud earth hum. This could be something simple like a loose ground cable, or it could be that the internal PSU needs replacing (I believe they have a reputation for failing). Therefore being sold as spares / repair. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Cheetah MS 6 (Matrix 1000 Style Multi timbral Analog Synth). Went to switch this old beauty on today and it is unresponsive and I can’t remember why. Was working. Display did something weird. Someone looked at it? Too old and deaf that Ableton isn’t way more convenient however good this sounds. Condition is “For parts or not working”. Dispatched with My Hermes or Collect +” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“This one was from a bedroom storage, never gigged, never in a studio. At 40 years old it has some obvious scratches, some dings, a missing button (easily replaced), the LCD is loose, and it shows just how usable this classic is. Please see photos.”

The auction includes only the device.”

“This synth was recently serviced, nee internal battery, new MAAD firmware installed (google search it and you’ll find the page with upgrade info) which drastically expands its CC controllability for easier editing and fixes some known bugs.

Like most of the cheetah rack synths they suffered from poor paint quality and has a little bit of rust here and there. Doesn’t effect the synths performance/functionality. See photos for details. This is a 110V unit. Item will be shipped via USPS or FedEx and insured for the sale value. Sold working but due to its age will be sold as-is no returns or buyers remorse. It pains me to sell this piece as it’s really one of the best sounding poly synths I own. Really rich tone. I’ll find one again some day.” Click here to search for synths on eBay
