Of all my stuff, I just cant put down my SK-1s.
It's my first venture into sampling and I'm realising that all these cool sounds I've been hearing on some tracks are done by samplers. And now I have a means to put mellotron 8 voice choirs in my music! Right on!
However, now I want a bigger sampler. :oops: :roll:

My studio workhorse is a USA made Fender Strat, Guild s300d and an Ovasion Limited Addition Acoustic. You see, I'm a guitar player who also plays keys (well "plays" is a loosely chosen word... more like "hacks on").
Analog: Mono/Poly, Prophet '08, Juno 106
Digital: Kurzweil SP88, Yamaha DX11, Kawai K4, MS2K, AN1x
Modules: Triton (loaded), Motif ES, MS2KR, E-Mu Proteus 2K, TR626 DM, Roland U220
New Addition: Fender Rhodes 73 Mark I
So much gear... So little time!!!

MEK for sure...

though i still love the Micro korg, especially run through a lexicon mx300, thats my composition 'workhorse'...

most of my stuff really comes to life within Live 7 though, through fx chains.

I'd have to go with the Minimoog Voyager. I guess I just don't care that much about chords or pads anymore.

Has to be my lovely trusty deep Yamaha SY85.

A recently purchased Supernova II Keyboard is starting to creep in more and more too. I love getting it's arpeggiator controlling my MKS70.

Still relying on my ESi32 for samples.

Basic but effective because I've become so familiar with them over many years.

Mpc100(midiclock)>mobius(clock)>SH-101(sequencer)>Modular.

This always gets the ideas started.

my computer running (Cubase/Reaper/XT/FL/Orion/Live)
If my Korg 01 was at home, I'm sure that would be my main keyboard..since it isn't, at the moment my workouts tend to involve the ESQ-1 controlling the D550.
