ok, ok, since you asked... Wink
yet one more doepfer G6 rack case with the following modules:
two specially modified a180 multiple modules for steping down 15 volts to 12 volts. these special modules are needed to connect my Blacet modular(+-15 volts range) to my doepfer, analogue systems, concussor, etc, modulars) that can safely receive +-12 volts.
one more A188-1 BBD module, but this time being 256 stages:
Image
in general, shorter BBD chips are better for Karplus strong synthesis.
also, a new A188-2 Tapped BBD module:
Image
this is better for "reverb" effects, but, really these BBD modules can make some really crazy sounds...(beyond "standard" reverb, chorus, flanger,etc...)

Jen SX1000
The Jen is a nice and very basic monosynth. Working good. 3 colour knob caps missing (very typical for a Jen) and a little bit yellow keyboard.

And a real cheap and bad painted
ELKA Rhapsody 490 that needed some repair. I fixed it last sunday. It is a little bit younger then my Hohner String-Vox which is a relabeled ELKA Rhapsody 490. Sounds very much like the string sections of the big ELKA Rhapsody 610.
Nice 4 octave, compact and lightwight (compared with other string machines) keyboard. Came with a gig bag that fity very well.

Pictures not yet done.
No sound yet recorded.

OK, not the most exciting item, but makes things a little easier in the studio, the Yamaha DD55 drums (my previous purchase) are far more exciting and being recorded in my sequencer (MPC2000XL) thru' the Akai .

I played on the VP550. For me not worth the money. There're better things to spend my money on.

The VP550 is cheap looking, the price has dropped very quick over here in the UK. I have the original VP330 in storage which is far superior to the black plastic VP550, the 330 holds it's secondhand price as well between

all true but for 250 pounds it can so some weird things.
And wood + Steel doesn't make the sound.
I know enough gear that is not the best build but sounds amazing.
