1 Poly ANDROMEDA real analog, knobs galore...i'd never ever tire of it
2 Mono MEK this is the hard one...so many choices...i'd likely change my mind daily on this part
3 Drum machine MACHINEDRUM elektron is the coolest company..so quirky
4 Sequencer RM1X i love yamaha...i could never have a rig without their stuff..and, this lets me squeak in some extra sounds in the guise of a sequencer
5 Wild card NORD C1...what, like i wasn't gonna have a ultra lightweight hammond clone in my rig?
that's not dirt, that's chili sauce!

1 Yamah CS-80
2 MOOG Minimoog Model D
3 Roland TR-8080
4 Doepfer MAQ16/3
5 Roland Jupiter-8 / ELKA Synthex / Oberheim 8-Voice (can't choose)

Or - if money would be no problem - a giant expanded MOOG Modular System III (but modular systems were not allowed...). And for a small modular setup (in a small briefcase) I'd choose the EMS Synthi AKS.

What your asking is pretty much my setup

1. Prophet 08
2. Moog LP
3. Machinedrum
4. MPC 1k
5. Kaoss Pad 3 but i would probably choose my laptop (but to keep it fair i would only have recording software (most likely logic) and just effects) or ugh maybe my turntable w/ mixer :shock: i dunno

Hmm... I'm gonna cheat the system a little here, just a little...

Poly: Roland Jupiter-8
Mono: OSCar
Drum machine: Linn LM-1
Sequencer: Fairlight CMI IIx (or a laptop with Cubase 4, I'm not picky)
Wild card: Oberheim OB-X (8-voice)

Now, I'm gonna assume that all these have MIDI. Oh, and that effects and recording facilities are included.

1. Juno 60 - alwayws sounds good
2. Voyager - I had it for a week and I love it.. Bass rox on it. Too expensive to I took it back and bought my ION..
3. TR808 - Had one in 94 but sold it for a lot of money
4. Frostwave sequencer - I saw the demo on this and it's amazing.. Too bad they don't make them anymore because my ION would love it.

5.0 Arp 2600

Actually, your Ion would not love it. It is a CV sequencer. But, if you get some analog gear, I would highly recommend the sequencer.
