Okay...this probably does say something about my mental health...I actually had a dream about this particular post last night...

I was communicating somehow with Don T about my 'trons (I have a DUO and a DELAY), but I started eating the outer case of the DUO, making sure not to damage the chips inside...it felt and tasted like marzipan or something...I think I was doing it to get the components out, but I was eating it like a little kid might eat a PB&J sandwich...biting off the outer parts to leave the best for last, except of course I didn't eat it. I was very conscientious not to damage any of the components, and I had in mind to send them in the mail like that.

I need a different hobby...

In all seriousness, I might consider donating one or two to your DIY cause. =D>
Or you need to eat/not eat before bedtime.

Unfortunately, the only acid I'm into is acid reflux...and occasionally acid house...

Confirmed U.S. price will be $599 and shipping some time in February. I preordered one through what was Novamusik (now bought out by Kraft Music).

Incredible price. Even if you don't need another monosynth (even one as unique as the MS-20) it is hard not to want to pick one up just as an impulse buy.

GAS.

$600! Cheaper than I would have imagined. I'm down to my last excuse not to get this...(Mini-keys, combined with the fact that Korg's cheaper keybeds are pretty sad)

Not bad? It's a total coup! Minibrute killer? Minibrute cross-pollinating drug? 2013 is a great time to love synths.
