I'm with Z and Mini with about 100+ synths, 7 drum machines, 10-20 misc controllers ( keyboards,sequencers,pressure strips, arpeggiators etc), 3 electro-acoustic pianos and a bunch of effects units and acoustic instruments. For the last 2 years I've been limiting my expenses to repairs and maintenance plus some software based purchases. I've sold a few monsters over the last 5 years or so as well: CS80,Jup-8 and a DX1.

WHAT? How can you say that you have not room?
It's because of where I live. Some day I might have a big house with many bedrooms, but for several years now I've been a bit cramped for space.
jxalex wrote:did you just meant "having no space" in a means for _modular_ synth only?
Not really, but I would still agree with that idea. Modulars consume both time and money in excess. I am just a hobbyist and am happy to use what I have. My girlfriend just gave me an SQ-1 for Christmas though!

There is something what I want to obtain, but there is really nothing, no synth.
Understood. I'm sure many of the forum members can relate. I saw a video recently of someone using a large variety of modern pedal effects on his Drumbrute individual outputs, so they could soon be a kind of G.A.S. temptation for me. Would be a great way to recreate that John Foxx Metamatic vibe. But yeah, not much temptation for buying synths for me either.
I am no longer in pursuit of vintage synths. The generally absurd inflation from demand versus practical use and maintenance costs is no longer viable. The internet has suffocated and vanquished yet another wonderful hobby. Too bad.
