SH-101... i think it would be good for youtube cover videos - put it to work and make the next $1k ;) - dont pay $1k... pay more like $800

ok that's the impulsive answer - the smart answer is if you don't already have good headphones, good speakers, proper furniture, up to date computer, smart phone, or need to pay off some debts... any combination of those things... fix what's missing before adding more synths (i never would have said smart phone except mine has made me go from sucking at social networking to... not - and it matters for your music career)

I would go back ten years and get TEN Poly-800's. Then sell them to pay off my time-machine making debts.

Oooo. Good call. I have both the MS20 and Microbrute. Maybe it's time I get down with a Beatstep.
