Re: Your latest musical purchase

Just bought a Juno-106 with replaced voice chips. It was a nostalgic purchase for me. Since I have a FS1R, I sold a DX7IID to finance it. On its way!

Re: Which synthesizer(s) do you regret getting or selling

Yamaha FS1R - despite the poor interface, it is an amazing sounding synth.

Regretted it so much, I just bought a replacement.

Re: Is it just me, or is the 707 everywhere these days?

Just picked one up really cheap in great shape. I love the sounds, the interface, and being able to drive other synths with the trigger out. The mixer is fantastic live letting you bring sounds in and out.

Re: Reissues you'd like to see...

Same situation! The Motif XF+ a bunch of VSTs replaced a whole lot for me. My Minimoog Model D may n...

Re: Gigging with vintage synths (Juno 60)

Gigged with a Roland Juno-6 for 4 years in college. Never glitched once. The Juno-6/60 are rock solid.
