Yeah that's what I figured. That how I was able to buy an ARP AXXE for $250.00. Plus got a $200.00 omni for $150.00 from a Pawn shop. I told the sales man that I was interested in buying the omni, and he offered $150.00 for it so I took it. Unfortuneatly when I got it home it turned out to be dead. But insted of returning it I found a Repair shop and the fixed for me and only charged me $195.00 for the repair. But after a couple of days I got it back a key died, then 2 days latter another one. Turns out that a contact wire under each key had snapped off. Never bothered to have them fixed so I just left it alone. And keep it in a carring case under a bed in my spare room to keep dust out.

I've been looking at Roland Juno-60's

Don't forget the Juno-6 , it's the same exact keyboard but no programmer and no DCB . Dcb is nice though , you can use it with the JSQ-60 and MSQ-700 sequencer . Korg has the Polysix , Akai has the AX-60 , Yamaha has the CS-50 , Kawai SX-400 , and Siel DK-600 . Just some alternatives . Each sound different , and each have their own special features .

I'd love an EMS VCS3 or Synthi A. I have some samples on CD and those two don't only sound good, they look amazing too.

Here's the Synthi A: http://www.ems-synthi.demon.co.uk/portabel.gif
..and the VCS3: http://www.ems-synthi.demon.co.uk/vcs3.gif

We have a VC3 in the studio here on campus. It's like playing atari and battleship at the same time.

Thank you 800DV. Yes tek those are cool synths. I actually saw a Synthi A, for sale on ebay just recently. I think they were asking $1,200.00 for it. Neat idea though, a synthesizer in a Breif Case.

If you think a VCS3 sounds cool you owe to yourself to check out :

David Vorhaus' WHITE NOISE 2
"Concerto for Synthesizer" 1974
