The MKS-30 is a MIDI rack module version of the JX-3P with some enhancements. It is an analog synth with two DCO's (digitally controlled oscillators) per voice, six voice polyphony, it responds to velocity, and has 64 internal and 64 cartridge memory patches. The typical assortment of analog filter, envelope, LFO and oscillator sections are here with easy and straight-forward programming. It can be controlled by the PG-200 programmer for easier hands-on tweaking. Never quite gaining as much popularity as the JUNO series synths, this synth is as good as inexpensive analog gets! It is used by Cirrus.





there is also a clone of the PG 200 controller called the dtronics dt-200
