When we love something we tend to inflate its relative importance in the world and for that reason and other reasons I believe the following. I doubt that in 30 years there is another revival of interest in Synthesizers as we have today. Yes there will still be people (us) who collect and value both...

I would think it would go to whatever machine has the most Oscilators working per note.

Mind you while we are addressing silly synth questions why not the following

Coolest Synth
Ugly Synth
Annorexic Synth
Nerdy Synth
Sickest Synth

Give me a break !

I love both these machines big time but would not buy either If I could get my hands on a Prophet T8 instead.

I have a JV-880 and 1080 and love them both the 880 is very underrated and has more punch in the bottom end that the 1080. I have Vintage, World, Piano and Orchestral cards installed and planning on addind the ASIA and another Vintage card to the 880.

Re: David Sylvian's gear...???

What about the gear used in Blemish or in Dead Bees on a cake??? I love those ethereal synths!!!! I am sure he still would have a Pro 5 lying around somewhere Roland D-50 has been a favourite of his too. He uses a bit of Clavia Nord gear and is the lucky owner of a Hartman Neuron! I dont have it on...
