Re: what is the best synthesizer from the 2000's (2000-2010) ?

analog: Andromeda. without a shadow of a doubt. the fact it has been produced in original, unaltered form for almost 10 years, speaks for itself. no other analog has accomplished that. it just surpassed minimoog as well. not even digitals, cept if you count in those that got altered/updated in the ...

Re: So what's the deal with a 2600 audio upgrade?
