Ouch!
You beat me to that one, sir! :wink:

I'll go with the EMX, an all-rounder, unlike the either/or other two.
I didn't get where I am today by posting on internet forums.

You can have only ONE of the following:

A drum kit (liken this to the 808)
Or a workstation synth (liken this to the EMX)
Which one instrument do you choose in order to make an entire album that can rock a crowd?"
If I'm reading the story right, you get both the 303 and the 808 if you go that way. So it's not quite that bad, although the EMX still gives you a bit more flexibility.

I'd probably take the 303 and 808, though.

You read correctly sir.

A generator and a PA system
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

With all the threads that are dumped around on this site, I'm suprised this one is unmolested.
It's What would you rather have...this or this...Buyers concern.
No need for the hypothetical scenario.

either a TB-303 and TR-808, or an Electribe EMX

There's the point.
I'd take the EMX. The purist or (retentive snob) would love the 303 and 808 for sheer bragging rights and
retro-cool-guy-points, but functionality wise, I'd stick to a modern solution. The 303 would have to be modded anyway.

Which among the three would be solid enough to smash open coconuts?
I don't think it would be the TB-303, but I have to confess that I might get some joy from trying. :wink:

Ah, so you do... In that case 303 & 808. Yay for meaningless numbers!

Then wait, you just want to kill an innocent 303... Go right ahead by all means.

303 & 808 of course.

If anyone gets bored with the baselines, well just have him/her for dinner. :twisted:

Korg EMX. No doubt. I could make a h**l-of-a-party with the EMX.

All you need is a half decent rapper, and an 808 would have you COVERED. Maybe a soul singer to fill in those all important vocal hooks
Moog LP + Casio SK1 and MT-75 + tube amp = good tone.
