    WITH OVER 25 YEARS EXSPRINCE

    I think he calculated 25 years of inflation with that, too.

      doesn't matter about the price, they're a waste of time.

              He probably thinks they're worth more than the Jupiter-8.

              Which brings up a good question, which synth *is* worth more? JP-8 or MM?
              Playing synths means never having to worry about broken strings.

                The MM is the phattest synth I have ever played, though I have never played a Model D or a JP8 so I am not sure how it compares. From what I've heard I think I'd take a MM over any other synth

                  I think it was a jab at the OP.

                    Why didn't he just jump onto one of the other 9 synths on stage?

                      Soundxplorer had it right -- just a jab at another thread.

                      In practice, when I had my MemoryMoog (LAMMed too) I rarely used it. It was big and fat and limited (from a sonic palette view). I know I'll get a lot of crap from MM lovers for that, but the fact is, why equip a machine with 18 oscillators if it's more versatile with most of them turned off?

                      If you want/need a big blast of raw analog, the MemoryMoog is your go-to machine. For everything else, I had machines that created what I needed better faster and more seamlessly.

                      Yes, you can create a delicate string sound, or a solo flute type patch, but why unless it's your only synth.

                      The bottom line is that the idea of owning a MM was better than the reality of actually having it.

                        That was my experience too. The MM definitely did have a limited sonic palette compared to a lot of other synths. I got bored with it quickly.

                              ("Where the hell did he pull this price out of?")

                              I know it may sound ridiculous, but I actually sold my MM+ a few years ago on eBay for $3,800, to a techno guy in Europe. So this seller's price is pretty darned steep, but there are folks out there who just must have this board.

                              It brings up the question -- what's a fair market price for something increasingly rare, when you've got to have a particular sound and can't get it with modern gear? In that vein, I wonder what I'd pay for a mint Matrix-12. More than I should, probably.
