Re: Anyone remember Bluesynths.com?

I read their reviews a lot when I was new to synths and it was very exciting and helpful. What happened to all the content? :(

Re: Another New/Classic OBERHEIM!!

Are they going to sell one single unit of these? I was expecting 900 + 1000 + ~ 300 dollar = 2200 dollars TOPS. Not friggin' 3495!!!

A 70's band in the 80's = Sparks

Some of the 80's albums are really good and interesting synthwise, too.

Why do every one but Roland understand what synthesizer people want? The target group they once aimed for.
