I see a Korg Polysix in the photo, not a Juno 60. A temporary synth substitute?

As i remember it (As a punter), going to gigs & occasional hiccups went hand in hand together owing to machine malfunctions etc.. I'd like to think that we never achieve perfection because then we would forget the humanity & chaos side of live gigs. I see that with digital d.a.w's & vst's etc..that some of reality is already lost & younger people who never knew any different struggle to come to terms with the sound of new analogue gear that isn't quite that perfect & squeaky clean ! Good to see so many folk still flying the hardware flag. Cool.

The Polysix has indeed stepped in to replace the Juno.. The memory recall gave the edge for the live use.. holding up well so far (touch wood)

The Polysix got the nod over the Juno 6, as the memories made it just more practical, with 4 other synths without memories to change between songs! The Juno 60 would have been the obvious choice had it's arpeggiator been working properly.

Wow, loving the tune! I'll have to get more of their music! Gotta love that they have the guts to roll with proper analogue gear too - it makes a difference!
