ok, still have stuff listed on the first page of this thread but i'm gonna make a second post with a long shot that hopefully will be an interesting scenario...

think i'm gonna put my korg mono/poly up for trade. nothing in particular i'm looking for, but i'd ballpark that i could currently ebay it for $1200 or more. seems to be an average price for them of late. fantastic condition, everything works perfectly, have a massive hardshell case custom made for it as well.

it's what caused my synth addiction. my second analog, studied up here on VSE deciding what to go for, found one for a decent price, was all downhill from there. awesome synth, just have racked up too much gear & don't use it enough.

bring it on.

oh also i live in columbus & yes i'd ship it, but only within the USA. sorry rest of the world, once in the case it weighs a freaking ton. or if you live in ohio or a surrounding state i'd be up for meeting halfway. also have plenty of references on here both selling and trading. couple examples, once upon a time swapped a computer w/ suburban bather for a juno 106, recently traded a perfourmer for computer controlled's eurorack modular rig, just shipped metasonix a couple modules in trade for an r-51.

off the top of my head, things in a similar price range i know i would not go for:
any drum machine
perfourmer (though i did love the one i swapped out, just didn't need it...)
prophet 08
poly evolver
jupiter 6
acoustic drums
guitars & basses

Perfectly happy with my DSI Tetra... BUT!

If somebody has the following I would be up for a trade:

-Prophet 600 (+ I'll cover shipping)
-JX-3p with PG-200 (shipped)
-Alpha Juno 1 with PG-300 (shipped )
-JX-8P with PG-800
-Akai AX-80 (shipped)
-Moog Taurus II

These all need to 100% and near minty for me to consider. And of course we may need to negotiate some cash "shimming".

I'm after a Quasimidi Polymorph in the UK, and I have a Virus Indigo or a Mono Evolver Keyboard to offer as trade.

Polymorphs go for £350-400 normally, but I'd value the Virus at £525 and I'd be prepared to swap direct with no extra money needed - so somebody would effectively make £525 for their Polymorph!

If you wanted the Evolver, well that's only a few months old and cost me £800, so there'd need to be some money aswell. A polymorph plus £300 would do it - effectively valuing your Polymorph at £500, which is still great. BTW, the Mono Evolver keyboard is a lucky one with no encoder issues, and still has over 3 and 1/2 years of warranty remaining.

Now, the Quasimidi must be in the UK and in near-perfect condition cosmetically and perfect working order. Ideally boxed with PSU and manuals if possible. I'd like to meet in person in the Northwest UK [but could travel a reasonable distance if required.]

For Trade (cosmetic condition)

1. Korg MS2000R (8.5/10)
2. Analogue Solutions Black Coffee, semi-modular mini synth (9.5/10)
3. Soundscape Mixtreme 192 PCI card
4. EMU E5000 Ultra sampler (32mb, internal Zip, no other storages) (7/10)
5. Wavestation A/D, dead backlight but fully workable. (8/10)

I live in Taiwan so the shipping is more but, trust me, it's not as much as what you think. My ebay account is asskicked0309 with 133 positive feedbacks, 100%. Check my record and you'll see I sold big stuff to all over the world. MPCs, JP8, minikorg...etc.

I prefer analog or VA synths with fully editable UI. Willing to combine several of mine or with cash for something expensive when necessary. Or maybe just cash I can accept Paypal too.

Have MPC1000 + Waldorf MicroQ (probably with Omega upgrade)

I might be willing to trade the combo in exchange for something with 61 keys and lots of knobs

Also - interested in a straight up trade, my Akai AX60 for your Akai AX80.

Here's what I have right now:

GForce Oddity (ARP Odyssey emulator)
GForce Minimonsta (Minimoog emulator)
Novation Nocturn (handy automap USB controller for virtual instruments)
Yamaha RY-10 (intuitive good-sounding drum machine, w.some edition functions and shuffle)
Casio RZ1 (very cool drum machine, I used it so much in the past that I have to get rid of it)

Altogether, it makes a 400$ value. I could either sell them or trade it for something I would really use (MURF, pitch Pirate, Geiger Counter pedals...).

I also had an Eventide ModFactor for sale but I think I might keep it. I recently realised how awesome it is for ambient sounds. I also have a TR-606 that I don,t use much. It has a slighly noisy output when used with a power supply (totally clean on batteries). But these things, I would not let them go for peanuts.

I have a Korg M500-SP that never fixed. The synthe presets 1 & 2 are not producing any sound - that's how I bought it. All the other positions are working. Besides that the synth is in extremely mint condition. I can trade it for pretty much anything. I am in Vilnius, Lithuania.
Happy New Year,
