Marion Systems MSR-2 Project Machine

“Marion Systems MSR2 Rack Synth.

Problems:
Has problems saving patches.
In order to get sounds via MIDI, adjust the mix volume by accessing menu and turn it up (its set at 00). Also it has to be AutoTuned to hear the oscillators. Got to AutoTune in the Menu: set to All and press Enter.
Sometimes it freezes while playing MIDI and adjusting parameters and has to be re-started.
I was told it may just need a simple battery replacement but I’m not a tech – I can not give an accurate diagnosis.
Fix and flip or add to your synth collection or spare parts if you already have one. The Marion MSR-2 is a rare synth. These are going for a nice price second hand/ on Ebay.
It has a wavetable, PWM type sound, Great for dub techno and through effects. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“That’s a video of the Marion ProSynth that I found on YouTube. The ProSynth is the non-expandable single voice board version of the MSR-2. It sounds about the same but the MSR-2 has some more options, such as filter inputs.

Comes with a printed manual, but the manual can also be found online.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Rare Rare Rare. Not many of these were made and the almost never pop up for sale! The Marion MSR-2 8 voice polyphonic analog synthesizer was designed by Tom Oberheim and so it is known for having the ‘Oberheim sound’ packaged inside a compact single-space rackmount module with modern digital reliability and MIDI implementation. Extremely flexible routing and modulation possibilities including analog inputs to each of the 8 filters for processing external signals! This one works perfectly, sounds awesome, has a brand spanking new battery, and includes the original manual. I am the original owner and it has been very well taken care of. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
