Might as well make my confession to the "Enabler Stable" for synth addicts.

Started off with a Korg MicroKontrol and Reason 3.

Upgraded to a Novation X-Station

Originally I had a Tascam US122 Audio Interface.

Synths I have sold: Novation X Station, Virus B, Virus C (I found they overloaded and started sounding muddy far too quickly... the TI is much better, or maybe I've just become a better programmer), Waldorf Microwave XT (loved its filters though... I probably didn't understand it well), Terratec Axon (guitar synth... want the smaller version)., Cubase 4/TC Powercore X8/MOTU PCIe424 with 24io/MOTU MIDI Express 128
