Oberheim XPander

No keyboard on this one, but another dream synth with programmable  6 voice architecture with analog VCO VCA and VCF but digitally controlled. Only made between 84 and 88 it has three large (for the time) LCD displays - which are in this case very well preserved. Users include Vince Clarke, Sasha, Nizter Ebb, Depeche Mode and NIN amongst others.

This one is also from Pete Namlook's studio and went for a quite reasonable £1970

The PPG is a work of art and it sounds unbelievable. I would have to say that in my studio the PPG would get the most use out of all these synth. I would love to have them all but if I had to choose it would be the PPG.

I second Mattsynth's comment. I owned a PPG wave 2.3 20 years ago and I've many synths and workstations since then. There is nothing like the PPG!
