What synth = what car?

Post by Soundwave » Thu Jul 30, 2009 8:01 pm

On the strength of the very successful and entertaining 'what celebrity' thread I think it would be good to have a bit of fun with cars too! :D

Since I drive an Audi (though not an R8... dream on), does that mean I should get a Monomachine? :)

Does it have to be a car, or can we use other vehicles too?

And now, the only machine that makes so many different sounds that it can be called 'hybrid':

I would personally like to compare all old Roland analogues to Toyotas. In my experience both brands offer products that are absolutely dependable and while they're never top of their class, they always offer competant performance with easy to use features.

MK1 MR2 *WAS* the top of it's class in the mid/late 80s, especially the supercharged variant... and a classic (just like many Rolands) :)
