It was this challenge that actually triggered me to do my FM8 remixes..

Neat article.
I found some old cassettes a few days ago (yes, cassettes, stop laughing) with some of my old stuff on it and I was reminded (a) just how much I used my Poly 800ii back then and (b) that there are still quite a few occasions when I miss the underrated little fellow.
It doesn't matter if you don't like my personality, I have several more.

I'm surprised no ones posted Grooveboxes...

Personally, I've done about 3 or 4 songs using a mk only and a multi track recorder, but that was video game music and it was about when I first got it and entering the "gateway" into synthesizers.

I've often thought of doing an entire album using a virus and a controlling sampler with virus drum sounds in it. (in before VNV Referance)

I think perkristian, another forumite here in VSE has done stuff with one synth, and it came out pretty awesome. :D
