Actually Tek should enter "The Bar" section which is open.
You find "The Bar" under General Arranger Section.

freddynl: I am saving up for a Triton Le. But I am always on the look out for older vintage analog gear.

On a more serious note....... Paul I'm going tomorrow to look at an entire studio that's up for sale. A minimoog is included. Don;t know what it's condition is yet, but I'll know tomorrow. I do everything analog with softsynths now, but I'll still buy it if it looks and works well, and the price is right. Maybe I'll even keep it, but then again... maybe not.

A great begginers synth - MICROKORG or Alesis MICRON . Analog modeling , no crappy samples , CHEAP ! Lots of features packed in those things .

Paul , of all the digital boards you bought and then sold because you don't like the lack of control , the Triton LE wouldn't make you happy either . You are an analog guy , nothing wrong with that . If you want something new - MS-2000 , Alesis ION , Microkorg , Alesis Micron . Cheap ! Save Money Good , Ug Likes !

So what your saying is don't get the Triton le? I don't think it was lack of control, although I may have said that, I won't deny that. It was trying to find the right synth, plus trying to get out of the one track state of mind. Plus trying to find the type of music I want to play and create. Which is New Age/world/Asian/african/Nataive american.

Don't get me wrong I still love analog synthesizers. I just thought that the Triton Le would help me in my creativity and achieving my goals in music.

Well , if you need samples for your music , then you may need it . If you don't , then I wouldn't get it .

What about the Juno-D , it's a sample playback synth and it's even cheaper than the Triton LE .

Actually I was thinking both, analog and digital.

Yea, I know but I feel the Triton has what I want, plus I prefer KORG's sounds to Roland's.

I have never been too impressed with Roland as I have with KORG.

There is the possiblity thet KORG will eventually stop production on the Le and the price will drop tremendously.

Since Tek is in photography I'm pretty sure he'll post the picture in about ten years from now

Paul,

The Moog worked out well. My guitarist acquired it with the whole package, but he was liking it a lot and I think he may want to keep it.

Well these things happen. You can still keep trying. I have seen a few pop up on ebay. Or there is always the Voyager.

The Voyager is very nice Paul..I enjoyed playing around with one ... On the other hand, for a lot less, I'd say I'm pretty satisfied with my Arturia Moogs ( Modular and Mini ), along with all the other "softies" I have... lots of 'em that all added up together still cost me less than a Voyager.

It would be kinda cool to have the real thing too ( vintage Moog ), and mess around with plugging in the wires and so forth..Of course, using software isn't quite like the expwerience of using a real piece of hardware, but the sounds are pretty much there.

I so wanted a CS80 back in it's heyday, but back then I couldn't dream of affording one. The best part of all of this now is being able to have all of them ( virtually of course ) inside of a 9 lb laptop that can go just about anywhere.

Ah! That's what a thought, you crazy nut you. ED:

Well AJ, as long as your satisfied with what you have. Then don't sweat it. Virtual synths are nice, but me persoanlly I like to be able to grab a knob and physically turn it.

Oh..you can grab a knob and turn it..or push a slider ... you just have to set your softsynth up to link with your controller. FL studio makes it that much easier.

No, it isn't the same though. On the other hand, vintage gear is really getting to be 'vintage'.. and sometimes difficult or even impossible to fix.

True! After all KORG's Legacy Collection has an MS-20 USB controller.

If you can find vintage gear in good shape that's a good thing. But there are a few places I know of that still repair vintage gear.
