    It's 1984 again. Play now pay later. You will get a keyboard and some candy.

    I had no idea synths still cost $5k.

    Surely there is an emulator you can put on a laptop and then just attach a MIDI keyboard to for a fraction of that?

    Sure. That OB-X is a good emulator.

    Might be a good investment. Wouldn't be gigged and beat up. Who knows.

    I'm still getting into the Jupiter X and a couple other things I picked up. Stupid busy with everything else right now.

    Jupiter X was half that and they put the fucking four years same as cash on it lol. That was my birthday present to myself last year. I went with a vintage piece after my junkie friend moved out in 2020.

    I paid off that X on my Sweetwater card and two weeks later my "sales engineer" sends me a note reminding me that my card is empty and burning a hole in my pocket. I've been good so far. Saw the Juno X but it didn't do much for me.

    The Sequential/Oberheim OB-6 is $3500 but only six voices. I guess Sequential and Oberheim are part of Focusrite now. Gibson had bought Oberheim in the late 80's but didn't really do the company any favors.
