i could never work with that clutter. im a minimalist
I have a jomox x base which I only use with my tb 303 and some distorion pedals for just some breakbeat techno music thing I do live for fun. I also make some housey crap with it but they you can't really use the 303. I mean that is $1,400 + worth of gear that is utterly "useless" for making trance tracks, well you could use the jomox for making an analog kick drum but I just use microtonic, it is so fast to make a kick drum.
Yah I always wanted an oberheim xpander, but they were always $2,000 before and still are. Once I saw one in the music repair place where I get my gear fixed under warranty or sometimes when I can't get the parts myself or it is past my repair ability level. I wanted to steal it hehe, it looked magical. My friends grandpa made music and had all this analog gear. I wasn't even allowed to enter the room and look my friend said, even though I begged I never saw the minimoog, xpander, and a crap load of other gear. His grandpa was like noooo it's mine! I guess I kinda get picky about people touching my gear now, but not really. If they bang on the synth and have no concept of musicianship I sorta say, "this is an instrument worth thousands of dollars and not a toy."
I guess the xpander sounds pretty fat, but I already knew that. I was thinking about getting a roland super jupiter and just controlling in via cubase since it is all midi.
Ps thanks for the http://www.bluesynths.com link I have been looking for andromeda samples and etc.
