selling synths GAHHHH

had my first time where my GAS outweighed my wage this month (due to me stumbling across a 909 for a price that couldnt be refused *cough 850 quid...\

problem being that I saw the 909 on the way out from a purchase which had already put me close to my breadline..... seeing that my next tour isnt for a couple months an I have some bits a pieces to pay I think I might have to sell a synth (ARGH) hate to say it but I have quite a few and although I LOVE THEM ALL some are a luxury

so this is my hardware list, my gut tells me to sell the voyager as even though it was my first major purchase it hadsnt really made it on many tunes...an I find that I mostly use it for overdriving external audio though the filter.

(on a sidenote, could someone who has a voyager and a moogerfooger filter pedal tell me if it gives a similar overdrive on the moggerfooger to the voyager, if it does maybe i could compromise with a padal)

basically I think although it pains me Im gonna sell the voyager RME

I see the moog as very pricey but the newest as easiest to get hold of should I decide to re buy

was thinking i could sell it, pay my debts then maybe buy a modular case with the left over an go down that rabbit hole

just wanted to run my gear list past u guys an see if u thought it might be better selling something else????

so gear list

voyager
mpc60
akais950
emu e6400 ultra fully loaded
oberheim matrix 1000
waldorf mw1 rev a 2.0
ensoniq dp4
juno 106
jd800
yammy dx7
d50
tg33
roland re 301

do u see any overlap there?

there is a bit of digital pad overlap, I guess, but nothing that is worth selling for the effort it takes to re buy.....cannna be bothered to watch ebay for ages for a 100 quid sell

I hope this post makes sense an i look forward to your thoughts

I sold my moog for a modular too, lol, well sort of anyway. I sold my moog prodigy a while ago and recently my roland sh-2, funds of which went towards the modular, but it was always the plan to replace some of these monosynths with a modular eventually...I built myself a minimoog VCF clone module and I also have a moog mixer clone that overdrives real nicely...

are u happier since u sold ur moog?

I just feel like even tho the voyager has a special place in my heart it is a very expensive overdrive unit

If i sell it pay off my debt an buy a big modular case i will have a really good excuse to put off making music for a few months whlle I obsess over modules loll

I'd sell the voyager too. That will get you the most money and as you don't use it much...

I'd ditch the Voyager and possibly the Juno 106

another vote voyager. worth way money than musical value, in my opinion of course. One of my least favorite Moogs of all time.

I don't miss the prodigy much at all, it pretty much never got used on a track. The sh-2 I probably miss a little bit more, but I have so many other rolands and my modular can do bass that's just as fat so i'm not really that sad.

I like some of the gear you've got up there

"voyager
mpc60
akais950
emu e6400 ultra fully loaded
oberheim matrix 1000
waldorf mw1 rev a 2.0
ensoniq dp4
juno 106
jd800
yammy dx7
d50
tg33
roland re 301"

Personally, based on how much you owe. I'd let go the RE301, it's worth a lot of money, and I think you can get by with other delays. with the set up you have now, there's so much stuff, i'd think the 301 almost too powerful in the mix! hard to mix that up!

MW1 if you want to sell that ever, let me know, I really like those.

The voyager could get you good money, but you're kind of lacking a monosynth..., no?

It really matters what kind of music you're doing.

Your set up is very nice and balanced for most things though.

I would get rid of the s950, but if you have that and an mpc60, i'm sure you've got a sampler library +love them.

I would let the re301 go, This coming from someone who loves his re201 ...eh:-)

might even lose the matrix1000. nice synth but you have plenty to make music with.

True .. you do have an MPC60.. but it's nice to have an s900/950 around for the filters and the sine tone.

Also, might be a good time to decide between D50 or JD800.

If you just need enough cash to get through the month, then sell the matrix 1000. There is a constant market, the price is totally stable, and it'll bring in enough to eat. Then next month you can buy another one.
