I'm willing to bet there's a correlation between the length of these lists and age.


Not necessarily. I am rather old and have a short list only. Too lazy though to type it because noone will read it anyway.
A long list would at least have a kind of bragging value and therefore be a little satisfactory for myself, but, as said ... ;)

Well, I was thinking of a general correlation...not neceserily a ridgid per-person one.

I wish my list were smaller. The only "bragging rights" I get are in the name of experience, certainly not all good experience either... :facepalm:

I thought we were restricting ourselves to hardware. I have a big pile'o softies. They have a way of accumulating.

I listed Reason because it took a major hardware purchase(new PC and audio card). I have other softies that are not listed. A Korg CX3 is hardware.

You are from Rottenchester? I grew up in Webster. Did we have this conversation before? Short term memory is the first to go...

LOL... we actually did have a similar discussion in a previous thread. IIRC, you graduated from Webster Thomas??

This is a cool thread. I've enjoyed reading them and can remember having so much GAS over all the years for much of what has been listed here. Trouble is, in trying to remember all the gear I've owned over the last 30+ years (yikes!), it took time to decide on whether or not I really had these keyboards or just GAS'd over them so much my memory is telling me I really had them! Well, I think I have it straight, but I'm sure I've missed some. Okay, sorry about that ramble...
