Uh-Oh temptation temptation.

Postby Arpangel » Fri Mar 05, 2021 1:12 pm

Just noticed a VCS3 in readers ads, apparently unused, new model, very tempting, but also very naughty, and besides, my partner would kill me, or something even worse.

:shocked: :crazy: :(

Might I suggest simply NOT looking at the small ads? ;)

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children."

Get thee behind me Stan.

The advantage of Behringer clones is not only that they teach "patience is a virtue" but also that you can say

"its only a small synth" or

"its not as expensive as the original"

Twelve Grand?

Blimey, even JMJ would baulk at that. I'm sure that there's someone out there who won't notice the hit in the wallet, but it's definitely not me...

Well, it’s cheap actually, for what it is, but I’m not tempted.
The Berry copy is in my mind, and that’s a big factor, and I’m sure it’s influencing other potential buyers too, and affecting sellers.
If it was an old model with a bit of history attached to it, then that’s another thing.

Arturia make a software model for a lot less money. Try that instead.

It wouldn't make it sound any better. That's the first thing I discount when I have someone trying to sell me a piece of kit. I've had several pieces of kit owned and used by 'names' and used on famous pieces of music, but... it didn't improve my music. ;)
