they're lovely. Mine's boring old grey. Got a mod handle for it? I need to find one so I can rock out keytar style.
Such a unique and recognisable filter sound though, love it.

Yeah, gotta keep them together. would look weird with a blue handle anyway. I think 101s go for about 1300-1400 locally without case and mod-grip, that seems a bit steep tbh.

This is pretty neat, a monthly challenge to create a track using just a single synth: https://sites.google.com/site/kvrosc/

I've had too many synths and have too many virtual synths. First was a DX21 back in about 1989. I used to noodle on the DX7 in the guitar shop I used to frequent, when it first came out. It was amazing.

Prior to that, I had a mate with a Wasp back in my early college days.
Since, I've owned most of the ones I coveted, my tastes are cheap in all things- synths, guitars, wine etc

Getting more enjoyment out of synths again and redoing my new order tribute setlist....
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

I reckon I've had about 12 of those too :) I stopped buying the ones I coveted as they take up far too much room, even in rack form.

Can't beat the Solid Bass though...
