    Sort of begs to be turned into one of those odd 10 hour youtube vids.

    While we’re on the subject, what about Michael Iceberg?

    I've not used one but isn't it considered a classic?

    That Schmidt synthesizer makes my mouth water. Everything else as well. If I only won the jackpot in the lottery...

    That's my impression, at least a classic in the "inexpensive drum machine" category.
    The combined fortunes of the world's 26 richest individuals reached $1.4 trillion last year — the same amount as the total wealth of the 3.8 billion poorest people.

    Oscar Salas updated this version of the Trautonium, first developed by the electrical engineer Freidrich Trautwein in Germany in 1930, there was a commercial version credited as the fist mass marketed electronic musical instrument (at least by the BBC). It was later used by Alfred Hitchcock to make electronic bird sounds in his film “The Birds”. It is a predecessor of the ondes martinet of Messiaen fame (previous post). The composer Paul Hindemith is known among other things for his several short trios written for the instrument. I’d love to have one.

    Just because something is considered “a classic” doesn’t necessarily mean it’s any good (Roland TB-303 anyone?).

    It's popular in certain kinds of music, so it's good for that kind of music. I used to own one. Alas I sold it, before it really became popular.

    That's awesome! I use my Fantom FA 08 as MIDI controller and use my Prophet 12 for its own sounds. Love them both! There are so many good options for MIDI controllers now that it's crazy.
