Hi All

I went to a pro studio/music exhibition in London on the 11/02/03 (Sounds Expo 2003),and a specialist reto synth rebuild company had an EMS Synthi 100 on their stand,switched on being played.i have to tell you i have been onto electronic synthesis for over 20 years and have seen or heard nothing like it. It had been completely rebuilt,to its original condition.I spent 10 minutes or so talking to the guy who rebuilt it,and was told that about 40% of the electronics had been replaced.Even the front panel paint had been carefully match and resprayed.Unfortunatly no one was allowed to actually touch it because it was sold,so i cant say i have had the pleasure to play one.But if it was for sale and i had money to burn i would have paid any price asked. A real beast of a true synth,that i wont forget for the rest of my life....

Well, ...

Last night I played with a GENUINE synthi for about 3 hours. I'll tell you that it sounds MENTAL. After having patched together just 4 of the oscs, 2 LFO's and a few contol-signal the most wonderfull and werid sounds started emerging from it. All osc's drift like HELL, nothing is stable AT ALL. The sequencer didn't work anymore etc etc, but OH MY GOD does this thing work your ears! On the weirdness scale from 1 to 5 it rates 8.
