Sweet, more tests. These are great BTW.

Went with the OSCar.

I've just dropped an expensive Ming vase. My guess is EML 101 - I've never heard one in action and there is something about the filter which sounds a bit unfamiliar to me.
I didn't get where I am today by posting on internet forums.

I voted for the EML, but ha a realy hard time...never tried one.
Could have been the Oscar or Odyssey also, I think.

Based on the filter, I'd say is the Pro One.

In electronic music, sequencers are as important as synths, they all modify your composition and playing

It is not the Pro-One, it does not sound like a moog.

It's either the Arp or the Oscar.

hmm

Guessing Oscar.

I've gone for the Oddy. I've never played one, but it sounds like I always imagined that's what it would sound like...I'd be very surprised if it was the Moog.
