Andromeda... that's for sure.

The Andy can do everything... drums, basses, leads, pads, choirs, ep, mad FX... what else do I need?

If I could get a brand new Arp 2600 (even better if it was updated like the Moog Model D > Voyager).

But I'm pretty happy with my Voyager!

ROLAND SH-09 . . .

. . . based on Analogue Crazy's YouTube demo of its broad sonic capabilities and the fact that Mike Score, singer and synther for A Flock of Seagulls, fools with one in the house of mirrors "I Ran" video, the one which, in 1982, sparked my curiosity in synths into the flame of a lifelong passion.

Hey, that is a cool synth. If Evolvers weren't on the market, I would totally be gassing for one.

It's got everything the Prophet 08 does, but two more oscillators, 3 delays, distotion, a high pass filter, feedback and audio inputs as well.

Do you mean the Poly Evolver? I have the Mono and a P08. I think it's a KILLER combo. :-)

I could not afford to get a PE. :-(

No, I mean all of them. The voice architecture on all the Evolvers is identical.
