Re: Happy Birthday Gary Numan

I shall be seeing him in Portsmouth UK, on Monday (12 March).

Saw him first in 1979 and many many times since, always brilliant.

Re: Bottom Ten Worst Synths of All Time

In my opinion Korg M500-SP - not really a synth, far too limited. And the keyboard felt like playing bricks Roland TB-303 - I'm sure I will get moaned at for this but hated it from day one, a b***h to program and poor sound when new, now just a b***h to program and a poor overused sound. Roland Gaia...

Re: Studiologic Sledge - thoughts?

I love it. On paper the Gaia I bought prior to it should be better but I have never liked it.

Re: korg m500 micro preset how much

Somewhere, someone is laughing their butt off at the fact that many people think their hoax was real. Why would Korg rerelease THAT when there's a dozen other vintage synths to choose from. I think sometimes people invent reasons to buy old synths. A second hand Casio would give you far better valu...

Re: What synth (s) you own but haven't played for over 1 yea

My OSCar rarely gets powered up, never took to it. Other than that the TX81z sits in the rack but has no real use

Re: What was the worst synthesizer you ever owned?

Korg Micro Preset for me as well, the first synth I purchased (I didn't know much about them then). Looked to have a wide range of presets on paper but, as already stated, it was so sos limited. And to think for a bit more money I could of got an EDP WASP or an MS-10 I don't actually like my OSCar t...
