well for a wee bit more you could get a little phatty
or a dark energy+Dark time.

Though honestly the first thing that came to mind was "demo model A4 from Sweetwater".

I'm gonna go with the parts for a TTSH. It's like getting $8,000 worth of synth for $1000, plus it's in the form of the world's most bad ass Lego set.

ATM I'm gonna buy some ADDAC with a grand... 8-) Might change any week though (or precisely, will change as soon as I got some more ADDAC). :lol:

Yeeeeah... Good luck with that...

I could, but PayPal has been giving me a headache lately and I think it's good to buy new every once in a while. If nobody buys these from the companies that make them, all the praise and use in the world won't mean a thing.
