I won't share mine until someone else posts one that is three pages long.
I used to keep a list that also had the prices that I paid.

At first, I was happy, prideful and boasting- :D
eventually it became embarrassing. :shock:

Now, I'm just ashamed. :oops:

You never looked at getting fooger pedals for the Voyager RME?
That KORG 03 symphony is a wicked piece. Never heard of that before....

ARP Odyssey

Is that the new KORG one, or the old one?
Sorry for the questions in a thread of lists...

Doepfer A100 system
I had this on my fantasy list for three years.
Never grabbed one.

You know, I have a list of FANTASY things I wish I could own....
I think I'll start another thread and not hijack yours.

Yes, a real whiteface ARP.

The Symphony's samples are so lo-fi, it almost sounds like a Mellotron. I got it as a $99 blowout from Sam Ash back around 1990.

Here is my list: I've owned more in past than I currently own now. If I made such a list, a deep sorrow would over take over me. Much gear has been flipped over the years.

Off the top of my head (meaning, I'm sure I forgot something);

Kurzweil: K2vx (sold), K2500RS, K2661, PC3LE8, Micropiano (sold)

Alesis: Quadrasynth (sold), QS8.1 (sold)

Roland: MT32 (sold)

Korg: Wavestation EX (sold), Wavestation A/D, EX8000, MS2000BR, Z1, MS20m, OasysPCI (if that counts)

Yamaha: EX5R, VL1, TG77, TX816 (5 TF1s, now sold), TX802 (x2), SY99, A5000, Reface DX, TG33

E-mu: Morpheus, UltraProteus, E-Synth Rack Classic (x2), E6400 Ultra, PX-7

Ensoniq: ESQ-1, EPS 16+ (rack), Mirage DSM-1

Moog: Sub 37, Werkstatt

As far as recognizable patterns, I'm am more in love with 90s digital that most people that visit internet synth synth forums. I also came to really dislike Roland (even though the MT32 was the only Roland I ever owned) so they aren't even on my radar.
