I'd say the Virus more so for the atomizer than the snow though :)

Wow, I never thought that the Virus Ti Snow would be the highlight for me... what a snoozefest. The Linndrum II doesn't count.

Dunno, that Vox would look good in my living room... :D

And yes I agree about the MM OS: Why?? Nostalgia?? :?

And who at Korg's been on the crack? I mean, c'mon. Blaaaaah :roll:

Well... the Vox doesn't look like any Vox I've ever seen, with the drawbar placement, rotary dials and what appears to be a long LED screen. Could Korg be following Clavia's C1 lead?

Linndrum II (but it doesnt really count)

kinda digging the microkorg reverse but when i say dig i mean using a sand shovel and concrete is my digging area.

mpc 5k falls a little flat for me

Virus snow but a little or a lot out of my reach

Prophet rack i love but damn it came late since i have the keyboard ver

i guess im not really excited about anything :(

Well... the Vox excites me. A closer look reveals that it's a CX-3 front panel and keyboard with reversed keys. If they could bring this in at CX-3 prices, with decent combo emulations, Clavia would have a problem with the C1.

I'm flabbergasted - I absolutely and unreservedly want one!
I didn't get where I am today by posting on internet forums.
