I like to think I could get away with using just one instrument, but it’s just not possible.
There is something very admirable about someone who "seems" to use just one thing, but in reality regarding electronic music that’s rarely the case.
Brian Eno used the EMS Synthi a lot, but he also used other things, Todd Barton uses the Buchla Easel a lot, but he has other stuff too.
The bottom line for me is that everything I own produces it's own unique sound, there isn’t one magic box that can do it all as much as I’d like that.
I have a Novation A-Station that has some of my own favourite sounds, it’s indispensable, so is my Alesis Micron, and my Moog, and Micro Freak, all of these things are unique, and if I sold any of them not only would I loose some of my signature sounds I would also not be able to replace them with alternatives, there aren’t any. So I’m stuck with having to use multiple things, whether I like it or not.
