I own a Juno-60, an SH-09, a tb-303 and a tr-606, all of which are older than me! (im 23) and i absolutely love everything aout all of them! I think possibly my MKS-50 could be older than me too!
And then there's my bon-tempi air organ..... that could be ancient!
I had a guy in the studio the other day, we had the sh-09's CV and GATE's linked up through the 303's midi retro fit and cv/gate outs and used it through a valve preamp (1960) and it sounded out of this world. Something i couldnt have quite created with software synths or probabaly a mopho etc.
i find a lot of the above overrated apart from the 303(which has been overly used at this stage) in my opinion there is far better analog synths being made today but hey if it works for ya,, :)
