And I will pick up something real huge next weekend:
Eminent 310 unique

I just could not resist to bid on it.

Not as cool as a module but its all I've gotten of late and will probably be the last purchase from me for a while. Oh, the Mac mini was not included. Laughing

I only have some problems with the principal tabs of the lower keyboard.
Sounding better then a Solina.

Ahh...beautiful. The Eminent. Built in Bodegraven, 7 km from Gouda. I bought (my mum paid it) my Eminent S20 directly from the factory back in 1987.

Yes, but your Eminent is the 310 theatre version with the built-in cheese-box. Mine is the 310 Unique, however both sound the same, but in different wood cabinets.

Principally all string machines more or less sound the same, and the eminent wins out over all of them.

In fact there is this nameplate near the mains switch left of the upper manual:

Therefor I think it is a Eminent 310 Unique.
Of cause in the theatre housing.

The Andy is fine sound wise.

But the tiny little knobs under the display are a pain to use for big fingers.
And that if you use one of those to select LFO1 as mod source for something, then using the same knob on a different page for setting something else, and then just change from LFO1 to LFO2 might need to scroll from one end of the long list to another.
Endless encoders would have been a way better way of doing it.

But 16 analogue voices doubled and detuned plus some real analog detunings (don't let the Andy tune the voices all the time) is lovely !

Noise ring run through a quantiser is an awesome source of semi-random sequence parts. Sometimes it's like your instrument is improvising by itself.

Just from looking at your organ my back hurts, and I believe to hear some faint squeaking emerging from my wooden floors Smile...
