Looking at Proteus /1 and /2

I love the sound based on demos. I’m planning to get these from EBay bundled together. I create mostly late 80’s early 90’s styles tracks when I’m doing originals. They even have the factory presets!

I honestly love the old Proteus series. I used most of them with the exception of the Pro-Cussion and MPS Keyboards. They are simple and fast to use. Even had a Proteus/1 with the Protologic expansion at some point.

I personally could do with just having a Proteus 2 module at my disposal. :)

I’m also looking at a JV-880.

You have Garageband so that can load EXS24 samples right? You can buy all of the Proteus range in one pack from the official licensed source:

Much easier to work with. The original machine was great back in the day but it's very clunky now with the tiny display for editing, and the limited outputs and polyphony.

I don’t know if that will work, I have iOS GarageBand. Also, it’s more fun for me to get the real thing. It means I don’t have to buy software, because I like freeware better.
