    Gear you were most disappointed with - why?

    Hi again, hope you are all well.

    Here's a question.

    What gear that you bought were you most disappointed, or unimpressed with when you got it back and had used it for a while.

    And the flipside - what gear most surprised you after time, and why?

    Mine?

    Oddly enough I was not very impressed with the Roland MKS-80 Super Jupiter I had for a while - I just couldn't relate to it as a great sound. I loooove my MKS-70 though - perhaps I am a DCO guy!

    I really got alot out of my Casio VZ-1 after many years of getting to know it.

    best wishes

    I have been most impressed with the Roland MV-8000. It has all you could want in a sampler/sequencer.

    I was least impressed with the Korg Triton Classic. I hated the sequencer, I hated the thin and wimpy sound, and I hated the structure of the combi's and programs...What a piece of crap in my opinion. I hated the touch screen as well. I mean, you had to clean it all the time or you could only see fingerprints if a light was on in the room...
    ...and so on...

    least impressed by gemini bd10 turntable.

    most impressed by mixer behringer 1202

    I created a loop by routing the mixer into the sound card inserts, the sound card back into the mixer and the mixer to the monitors to allow me to add more inputs like my guitar, turntable, tapedeck, vcr, mic, and whatever else I feel like recording or sampling from.

    one.

    biggest dissapointments:

    * Roland MC-303 Groovebox: cute toy, great for first steps into electronic music production, but serious production gear ? naaaah...
    * Novation BassStation: bought as a TB-303 clone (like the advertisements said); TB-clone ? even not with the biggest imagination... (and then I got my real TB and I sold the BassStation...)
    * Novation Supernova II R: bought - after long time of choosing - instead of a Virus B; biggest (and expensive :mad: ) synth mistake I ever made

    biggest surprises:

    * my great vintage synths of course (like a.o. MOOG Memorymoog L.A.M.M. and Elka Synthex) - 'though that were not really surprises - I expected they would be that good
    * Roland JP-8080; bought with big expectations, after having a few months very dissapointed as I couldn't get the sounds I was looking for (my JP was even for sale during a few months), but finally I achieved the supersaw sounds I wanted and I'd never sell my JP again...
    I feel MOOG'ed today...

    Biggest surprise: Oberheim OB-12. The pre-sets sound like .... (what programmers do they have??), but once you start tweaking the knobs you have one of the best analog synths.

    Biggest disappointment: Korg electribe series. Sounds like gui artificial plastic! The interface, however, is unbeatable -- so simple and so fast to get creative.

    Lately, I am very impressed by the VST synths. If there weren't such a CPU hog, I'd stuck my computer full. But for now, I need my CPU for track counts and VST effects. As soon as I have an effects processing board (like the UAD), I'll get more VST synth.
