2 x Juno 6 - second one coz it was such a bargain and my first was a bit tatty - sold both in the end

2 x DW8000 - 1st one died of old age - still have my 2nd, which is in excellent shape and was great to find as a replacement.

Hahah, yes. I've never seen that photo, but it's pure inspiration. I guess I can't be all bad if I had the same idea as old Vince. Now...for that hit single...

I had two Syncussions for a short while so like, 4 channels of Syncussion, but the financial draw to sell one of them after awhile became too great and it's 2016 so its easier than ever to multitrack, sample, etc.

There are tons of things I've owned multiple times only to sell and rebuy.

Nord Rack 2 (my first proper synthesizer), I had its newer keyboard counterpart with the rack until I sold it. It was fun layering them. The rack 2 mutated to Waldorf XT (budget-wise) later on.

Rarely exactly the same:

Wavestation EX and A/D - Replaced keyboard with rack.
SY99 and TG77 - Keep and use both at the same time.
Nord Modular and Micro Modular - Bought the Micro as a test, loved it, bought the keyboard.
K2661 and K2500R and K2VX (and PC3, but its not technically the K range) - My all time favorite synths. Started with the K2VX, sold to get the K2500R. Added the K2661 and PC3.
TX802 and TX816 - Had the TX816, sold it to get the TG77 above. Later wanted a straight DX7 rack for some code I was writing, so bought the TX802.
E-Synth Rack and E-Synth Rack - Accidentally won two auctions at once. I was sure my lowball bid was going to be outbid, but it wasn't so I ended up with two. Lent one to a friend for years, but got it back recently when he passed.

Had and have lots of other synths, but those are the only duplucations.

Korg Micro-X. Sold and bought another, the second being too good a deal to pass up :)

Not synths exactly but I have two Akai S950s. I also have 2 Simmons SDS7s.

I've had 3 Simmons SDS9s (sold 2), two Yamaha DX27s (sold both). Probably some other stuff that I can't think of right now.

Like many of you, stuff comes, stuff goes, and sometimes stuff repeats. I can only think of two synths that I've had two of- Mopho kb and Little Phatty's, Stage I and II. I hope to add a third someday, when I get another Virus.

I've owned an Nord Lead 3 and the Rack at the same time for a while. Finally got rid of the rack.

Currently have an XTk and A Microwave II, JD-800 and JD-990, and weirdly, an SE-1x and Voyager XL.

I also have 2 Syntecno TB's currently.

I had 2 ARP Axxes about 4 years ago. It was my attempt at a poor man's Odyssey. But one was a black n gold and the other was black n orange. I CV/Gated them together with an ARP Little Brother and a Moog Rogue for a monster 5 osc monosynth. Impractical but fun!

Not sure if it counts, but I also had a DX7 and TX7.
