I recently got the Juno-60 back over the sea from its storage home, and it’s so lovely having it here again and wobbling away (and controlling the arpeg with an SQ-1 from time to time). I have a DX-7 knocking around, but it’s not come out of the cupboard for a few years as it’s just so physically huge (and I’ve never tried programming it, but maybe I’ll look into that one day).
The Nord Wave I borrowed for a month or two was wonderful epic fun, but it’s moved on to record the synth parts for a friend’s début album, so that’s fair enough. I like the split keys options on the (also borrowed) JP-8000, so really need to get some more time on that as well, but it sounds nice.
What else? Well, the MicroKorg is always going to be a favourite workhorse, even though it’s on sabbatical at the moment for space reasons (maybe it could sit on top of the Juno?). I also really should try out the Analog 4’s poly settings, especially with something like the Keystep, come to think of it.
But overall, it’s always the Juno-60, held arpeggiations grooving away, that will be the most fulfilling, I think.
