Buchla Music Easel (not sure the status at this right moment tho)

TTSH can also be counted right :D

Yes! Forgot about the Easel reissue. In fact, I just saw and (poorly) played with one at the Analog Heaven Northeast meetup. Think that one had been purchased within the last few months...

Revive again. Three additional years later, the Model D has come back both from Moog and Berhringer, who is also doing an Odyssey or it’s own. Prices for the latter and the Korg minikeys are really affordable. Meanwhile, Dave Smith had been taking things in kind of a parallel direction, innovating on top of his older synths with various Prophet developments and OB6 collaboration with Tom Oberheim. Amazing.
