"The ultimate in custom synthesis - all modules are independent for full patching system creativity.

Each module (VCO, VCF, VCA, etc.) is independent from every other module so you can set up your own patches exactly the way you want.
With the MS-50, the sounds you create are completely your own. Since there are no arbitrary internal connections, you can explore the sphere of sound synthesis without restrictions. As an incredibly flexible main unit for non-keyboard controlled synthesis, the MS-50 is unparalleled."

"Patch system expansion unit with independent modules for complete programming flexibility.

Equipped with a range of modules you would expect to find on a studio-type synthesizer, the MS-50 includes VCO, VCF, VCA, two envelope generators, voltage controlled modulation generator, 3-channel DC voltage mixer (adding amp), ring modulator, divider, integrator, inverter and sample & hold. All connections are made externally via the complete patch system to give you unrestricted control."
