Re: TG77: best FM module?

Many thanks, guys. I think I'm sold. Next time I have some extra $$, I think I'll incorporate some FM -- and probably via the SY77 or SY99!

TG77: best FM module?

I've been looking into adding some FM to my rig. I used to think that FM was just EPs and bell-like timbres, but I now realize that it's much, much more.

Re: Blofeld Vs. X-Station Vs. AN1x

I've never played an X-Station or an AN1x, so I can't make a comparison, but I do own a Blofeld module, and really like it, so I thought I'd just chime in with a vote of support for the Blofeld. It is a remarkably flexible and powerful machine. The two most common complaints are that it is "buggy," ...
