Interesting. I didn't know that but would explain why Bruce sent me a Linn Drum disk when I asked for a 1200 OS years ago.

Yep, that Mini came from Jack Wilde! When he realised it wan't broken at all Rick did offer to bring it back, or pay a more suitable price, but Jack said it was no use to him if it only played one note at a time!

I'll never know how I dropped so lucky on getting my bargain. I already had one Mini (the one I still have). I went into the local music store and the manager said "I've just got something you'll be interested in - make me an offer." I offered 150 and he took it!

Late 1980s, IIRC.

Eventually I sold it to friend who stripped it out of its case and did unspeakeable things with it.

Don’t go there, one of mine was a VCS3.

I remember watching a tour of Scooter's studio (from the DVD Encore (the whole story) and seeing a VCS3 just sitting on a filing cabinet in the hallway, FFS who just has a random VSC3 just sitting there (well maybe JMJ, he has to put them all somewhere!)

I don’t recall how much I bought or sold my Pro 1 for, but I do recall buying an OSCar MIDI in Bristol for about £150 which was cheap even at the time.
Just took a look and they sell for 4 to 5k. Yikes!

I wouldn’t mind buying things back, but it hurts too much for two reasons, they cost tons more than I paid for mine in the first place, and it makes me realise how stupid I was to sell mine.

With one small exception (K1r) I can honestly say that I've not regretted selling *anything*.

It's rather like people who are embarrassed about the music they liked, or the clothes they wore as a kid - I have not one regret, and nothing that I liked then that I don't still like now.

If I bought a piece of gear it was for good reason - and if I subsequently sold it it was because it no longer fulfilled that reason. I don't think I will ever regret selling anything!

Q) Who has pointy ears, a high-tech control room filled with dials, buttons and glowing lights, and a mindset that is ruled ruthlessly and efficiently by logic?

When you work in a space as tight as this it tends to concentrate the mind on the absolutely essential!

Flared trousers... Platform shoes... ? I still shudder when I see photos from the mid-late 70's.
