Not posted on here for a while, kind of gone back to being a bit of a lurker. I have been keeping an eye on this thread and have noticed there has not been a lot mentioned about the Pro 800.
I have no experience of the Pro 800 but it's very nice to see you posting again, it was good to see you in person at the last physical SOS meet before lockdowns started and I hope we see more of you going forward :-)
Thank you, likewise. Definitely will have to venture out to the next one!

I get that there are definitely other synths that justify a remake. I love the simplicity of the bread and butter analog polysynths of the era, but few seem to get a good reissue/remake in a decent form (looking at you, boutiques). The Pro-600 looks like a 'baby's first Prophet', but my favourite synths ever are the Junos, so that explains a lot :lol:
