Why is FM suspicious? Unless it stands for Prof. Fred Moriarty.

I meant some sound like they come from an FM chip, others sound like Sound Canvas samples.

Roland PG-1000 with one slider cap missing and a dimmed backlight, for €200.

BTW, some days ago I found my JD800 came with the Strings Ensemble cards :)

I have just bought a Yamaha TX802 to quench my thirst for FM synthesis. I have owned a TX81Z, a DX7 Mk1, a TX7 and a DX7S in the past and I really miss them all so I thought that'd be the right thing to do as I can't afford a TX816. At this stage, I intend to use it as two 8-voice synths and for identical-but-detuned patches rather than for layering or 8-part multitimbral use but you never know, really. I am still looking for a JP-8080 so I can have a rompler/sampler, FM and (virtual) analogue combination. I also got a RAM cartridge for the TX.

Multiple times. No go. I'm tempted to do a factory reset, but I have a lot of patches on it that I don't want to lose, and thus far I've never used any DX programs to back them up...........

A second Quadraverb GT like new in its original box and a Yamaha SPX990.

It Says on the QVGT front panel "20KHz bandwidth" but the passband reaches 25, I mean it´s the corner frequency... so I wonder if tweaking the cutoff frequency of the antialiasing filter will be of benefit. As there is a video on YT where three guys from Alesis, Lexicon and Valhalla all agree about 15KHz being enough for reverb. So I´ll use one of the QVGTs for mods and the other for reality checks...
