I'm on my second MC-202.

I sold my first ever analog synth, an Alpha Juno-1, but deeply regretted it, and bought it back from the guy about 2 years later. Does that count?

Oh yeah, I'm on my second Bass Station as well, but the first one was a rack and this one is the keyboard version.

I've had 2 SY22's and 1 TG33. I don't know why I even bother but they're such cheap, interesting machines. Just way too lo-fi and simple for my taste.

Have also had a JP-8000, and JP-8080. For a few days, both were in the studio together. That was fun.

Had an MS2000br, sold it, bought an MS2000 keyboard a year later, and then an output died and I decided to sell it for cheap.

I have also had 2 TX81z's.

Bought two p600s because I needed a backup when was using it as my main board live. And I've bought multiple sk-1s/sk-5s to give away as gifts to various musico friends.

Although I really like both the Yamaha and the JV-880, I think an "OUCH!" is in order.

But I take it this was way back in time, and who could know.. right?

It could have been worse, like a pair of 303's or 808's for a D-110 or similar. I'm sure that has happened too. :lol:

Oh yes this was early to mid 90's.

I had repressed the memory - I think I'll do some more repressing now

I'm probably forgetting some, but the synths I know I've had more than one of in the past are:

Arp Axxe (3 of them)
Akai AX-80 (x2)
Roland JX-8P (x2)
Roland Super JX-10 (x2)
Korg Microkorg (3 or 4)

I think that's it.

It's a long story but I now have 2 Microns. I lost the power supply for my first one, and the old Alesis PSU I was using for awhile ended up dying. I accidentally plugged up a DC power supply to the Micron and the screen started going nuts when I powered it up. It didn't make any sound and I figured it was completely fried. So I freaked out, bought a new Micron, only to discover the old one was fine when I plugged the new power supply into it.

So yeah, I have an extra Micron now.
