Too right! They were mad times and there were insane bargains to be had.
bought a MiniMoog for 150 during the analogue=bad / digital=good years. I also snapped up
a couple of Moog Taurus. I was also *given* an SH-09, a TR-808 (who needed those with the
new sampled-based drum machines around?) and a Logan String Synth. Times were good.
God bless the DX7 (and Korg M1) - it populated my studio with the analogue
I wish I could say I was smart enough to have realised what was
happening at the time, but I was also chasing digital synths. Unfortunately I turned down
an ARP 2600 for 400, a Wasp Deluxe for 40, a Korg BX3 (with pedals) for 150, a mint
Jupiter 6, a JP8 with a leaky VCA, a Korg MonoPoly...
