Yep !

I have tried most of the Reface range (bar the Dx)]

.....Well now I have checked out the DX and im impressed.
My first programmable polysynth was the £500 DX27, at £250 the reface has so much more, not least of all - velocity.

Since launch, it seems that WWW People have been busy creating, there are alternatives to soundmondo storage and editing, a hardware editor & tons of demo videos.

Heres an interesting DX demo using a hardware controller (£££) to create an evolving
landscape

He sorted mine out nicely.

Maciej at analogia.pl is also very good.

I spoke to Huw yesterday, very nice chap, I'm going to try and arrange a visit sometime.

Ooh he has some lovely stuff for sale coming soon. Even a Wurlitzer 140 and I could well be convicted that it would be a great alternative to my 200a ...

No ... must be good :)

I can highly recommend a chap just of the road from me in Leicestershire.

http://www.Klassickeysgb.com

I have always promised myself a ‘proper’ Wurly one day and this is where I will be going.

The guy who runs it is called Doug. For those of us here old enough to remember, he used to have a music shop in Nantwich (I think) called Dougie’s Music. A proper 80’s music shop!!!

Oh..... don’t click on the section marked ‘Dreamtime’ unless you want to lose the contents of your bank balance!!!

I take it you'd be in severe danger of GAS if you did that, not malware...

Yes!! I’ll rephrase that!! Dreamtime contains some really nice bits - ARP2600 as a starter for 10

I think the ARP has been sold, always loved the 2600, but I'm on the lookout for a 2500.
