Re: Buying a synth in Canada, need help.

I did it yrs ago, IIRC had to produce a bill of sale and pay the GST and PST (now HST).

Re: Sad Day , Keith Emerson passed away :(

Re: Oberheim OB-6 Dave Smith

Knolan, interesting points and that is why I am looking fwd to spending a few hours demoing the kybd before I decide whether or not to purchase. I want to hear the essence of the filters with no fx/production added.

Re: Prophet 6

Hopefully the software will have less glitches than their latest few offerings. Seems like they abandoned the P08 software updates with annoying glitches still intact.
