No, it would be American Pie - Band Camp. (Technically it was an english horn, but close enough for our purpose.)

I've got this acoustic guitar, it does acoustic stuff very well but I have severe difficulty in getting usable sounds for anything else out of it. You can get some okay percussion hits out of it but that's about it.

Great thread!

My TI2 makes very cool dark, buzzy FM sounds. Fortunately it does a lot of other things too, as it's one expensive pony.. :)

Mine would have to be my Electrix Warp Factory. Not truly a one-trick pony as it can also do external effects for synths, but as a vocoder module it wasn't designed to be the Motif.

I know the EHX Smallstone Phaser is supposed to be a guitar pedal, but every time I hook mine up to a synth, I can't help but change to a strings patch and strike weird Jarre chords..

And the Motif XF has a brilliant recreation of the Smallstone in its effects section. I've abused that quite alot with sawtooth strings sounds.

Is there any synth that's truly a one trick pony? Perhaps it would be fairer to say 2 or 3 trick ponies, but I get the point. Out of the gear I own, I'd say SK-20 for it's distinct mellow 70s string-machine/organ sound.
