Like falconry?

What do you guys think, should I sell my Golden Eagle to get a Harris Hawk or save up and have both? The Harris is pretty sweet and would definitely fill a gap in my avian arsenal, but I think I'd miss the brute fox-slaying power of the the Eagle.

What to do?

But as they sound extremely similar (except where the JX has greater functionality), it pretty much comes down to whether you want a great interface or superior functionality.
Aside from a few very minor differences that I've already mentioned in a previous post, I'd be inclined to agree. And since the OP has specified that he already owns a PG-200 you could say it's a bit of a no-brainer really. The JX-3P with a PG-200 is just as easy to use and quick to program as a Juno IMO.

Still if you do decide to keep it there's nothing wrong with that either. I let mine go for a measly £140 which really is very little for a Juno these days, so sometimes it's not worth selling something you like just because you can. :?

Can someone recommend an analog drum machine that does a really awesome rim-shot? :wink:

But seriously folks, try the veal and don't forget to tip your waitress. I'll be here all week.

One of my most valuable posessions is a Desert Eagle.

I hear Angus owns a dessert eagle...

Ah, thanks for the intelligent input. Thought I might get better from a moderator... :)

All I was after really was whether anyone, like the original jambo, might have had both and missed one if selling the other...

Thanks for everyone's input. I've learned a lot about my synths from the posts on here.

It is a difficult one. I've had the Juno for years and years and support the emotional attachment angle that someone else posted on here. It's been a great mainstay of my music. But if the thing is propped up against a wall it might as well be "out there" for someone else to use and learn about synths. It's not really about the cash- it's not like I have a moog modular to off-load- more about a "letting go"...

Any therapists available? :lol:

I expect lots of things from people I assume are adults. I usually just get disappointment.

At least the title of the thread is clear and to the point. There's nothing forcing anyone to read this topic after checking out the title, and since the mods haven't locked it yet you can only assume that they don't deem it redundant.

Maybe I should have been Carl.
