I just got the Herbie Hancock 4 cd box set last night. 8)
Music can Name the Unnamable and Communicate the Unknowable.

'I am... everything is... changed... they're calling... your face... interwoven... who is...' Patient mumbles inaudibly to a tune (sounds like 'Thanks for the memory).

Man my father has a bunch of that stuff on vinyl. Lots of Hancock, Lots of Chick Corea, lots of Miles (especially the pre-columbia miles), lots of Brubeck. I made a Hancock compilation tape from Sunlight, Headhunters, Thrust (best album cover ever) and Man Child. he's been held hostage in my car tape player for about 2 years.

Im going to see Buddy Guy and Santana tonight in Memphis!!!!!

I've owned loads, but currently:

Moog Voyager "Fire"
Novation SuperNova II (will be expanded to 48 voice eventually)
Korg Trinity Pro X (and there ends my current keyboard setup - it was 7 before)

Roland XV3080 with Techno & House cards (because they were cheap)
Roland D-550
Korg Wavestation A/D (with infuriating backlight whine)
Waldorf Pulse Plus
AHB Inpulse One Drum machine (undergoing restoration)
Sequential Drumtraks
Akai CD3000XL sampler

Out of use:
Yamaha CX5M with FM Module II
Commodore 64 with Prophet64/MIDI (dualSID upgrade and audio out waiting for free time)
BBC Hybrid Music System (8-voice digital synth controlled by computer)
Jen SX1000 (replaced on the stand by the Moog)

Recent departures:

Roland JD800, JX10, Juno 6, SH-101 (the latter three replaced by SuperNova II, the former by XV)
Akai AX73 (SuperNova II)
AlphaSyntauri system (went to Bletchley museum)
Jen SX2000
Roland GR77b MIDI bass and GR700 MIDI guitar

Potential newcomers:

Korg Oasys (to replace Trinity Pro X, if I can afford it and it genuinely feels like it has an advantage)
A theremin (the shop had a Moog one in, the price looked good...)
Moog Guitar (see MIDI guitars above; I have Kramers so I'm holding out for a slim 80s ESP-style neck, not some Gibson "choking an elephant" club).

oh, well.

Definitely a nerdish and goofy topic,

but... I am a newbie and just wanted to say hello.

Here's my lean and mean rig:

Moog Voyager
Yamaha VL 1
DSI prophet 8 rack
DSI tetr4
DSI mopho
Korg M1R EX (4 x)
Korg M3M+Radias

Controllers: Oberheim mc2000, Roland A70, plus the yamaha and moog which are used as controllers as well.

Morley fuzz+wha (for M1)
Alesis reverb unit
Behringer Mixer

No computer, no software synths.

In the past 35 years I have used more or less any available synth, and up to 2 rack-fulls of gear, but I slimmed down to this.

And I've never felt better.

Had a few bits of gear but kept my Alesis Andromeda next to my Voyager.

My other synths: Moog Opus 3, Studio Electronics Omega 8, Korg R3 (only for live use), Nord Electro 3, Solina String Ensemble. (oh, looks like it's all in my sig already)

The Opus and Solina are great for bringing a little "seventies" to my otherwise rather modern sounding setup.

Akai Miniak, Moog Sub 37 on pre-order, Roland Jupiter-4, Roland SH-101, Sequential Circuits Prophet-600, iPad, NI Komplete

I am down to just my Andromeda, and even that may go eventually. Been generally simplifying things over the past couple of years. Voyager staying, though.

Received my MFB Schlagzwerg lately!
With all the CV outputs and inputs, it's my Voyagers new best friend! I actually suppose both machines are gay!

I've got some REALLY OLD and REALLY TERRIBLE recordings on The harshness of them makes my ears hurt :roll: :shock:

We're doing some more today (hopefully) so I should have some better ones soon. Multitrack recording and semi-proper mastering any day! 8)
