    @ArticStorm I would steer clear of any of those Kawai if I were you!
    I had one of the standalone (rack, but not) types in '90 and it was rather naff! Luckily it was given to me!
    Something to do with my first band being called Kay-Wai Klimax by the original members!

    Which is what I came to say; don't forget about the rackmount versions of those, particularly the D-50.
    Although with that one you would be missing out on the Aftertouch if your controller doesn't have it.

    Indeed and many other disadvantages of software based solutions.
    I had a room a hardaware and many synths, atm I only have one keyboard (as masterkeyboard) left and three others lurking and picking dust, since I absolutely see no nessesarity to use them over the software I have :)

    i guess, you have to like making patches with it, and not so much being able to write music with it? I guess they can also be great for improvising, because of the more organic way?

    otherwise its just way to slow to come up with something i guess?
    the 80s/90s must have been awsome, without the convinience we have with our DAWs now ...

    I got these two and a few smaller ones like behringer stuff

    That modular synth was a self build project.
    Dont really have the time nowadays to play with them tho.. thinking of maybe even selling

    both ? own patches and own music ?!

    A computer with a proper controller ( most DSP synths are this anyways) can be as or even more expressive as an ancient hardware synth.

    But hey it is always a matter of preference, money and space. I am happy that I no longer have to maintain my analog 32 Channel mixer. Or Later Yamahas Digital Mixer or a Roland VS.

    @Moonlight, how well do you know the VS? now that you mention them, I have a question for you. I have twice seen recently a 2480 locally and cheap. Since previous owners understandably wipe the hd on them, they normally will have a demo song on it and that's it. But the hd usually fails later out into the disk... when you have stuff on it :(

    Short of filling the hd, how can you tell if it is already defective? or would you just factor a new one in, and if you happen to know what is a realistic replacement cost now? thanks.

    lei x ahi que martin gore para hacer un album de depeche compra maquina x ebay y las va probando --esto lo saque de una revista cuando hicieron Sound of the universe --https://www.abc.es/cultura/abci-momento-seguimos-pero-no-desearia-llegar-limite-rolling-200904200300-92288242887_noticia.html?ref=https:%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F

    En nuestra temprana carrera utilizamos mucha material analógico y siempre los hemos usado. Martin tiene adicción a eBay y compra sintetizadores, pedales de guitarra... Continuamente llegan cajas con ese material al estudio. Tienen un sonido totalmente diferente al de los sintentizadores digitales. Los usamos mucho en el álbum, pero su sonido no es retro sino en general bastante moderno.
