My entrant in the budget rompler stakes is the Juno G... spongey keybed, iffy screen, but small, light ant totally usable..sold it to fund fandom G

Do you know of any demos to check out on this? I've played it a long time ago.

For me, the easiest answer are the hybrids. The DW8000, ESQ1, K3. They all sound great. Back then, they were not quite a Prophet 5 or DX. But today, we realize that also means they are better than many others for all sounds vintage.

106 = worst sounding and my least favorite roland of all time.

Here is a really good one for me. You can find many more on Youtube; there are a bunch out there (some are horrible). If I'm not mistaken our own Don Solaris has listed this synth as one of his favorites as well.

Funny how people can't stick to the topic of romplers.

The way the title is written I at first assumed it was an either or proposition; classic, budget or rompler. Some people sure are nit-picky and sour. Sorry the world offends you. Glad I'm not you, brother.

This topic is not only about romplers, it's about classic or budget or romplers

My mom used to buy me a Whitman's Rompler every Valentine's Day.

Here for the gear
 

I picked up a Yamaha DJX the other day for $50, and am in love. I wasn't expecting much but it delivers and just keeps delivering. There's some classic budget rompler for you, with 6 seconds of sampling even. The most unexpected was another Yamaha, the QY-22 which I got just as a cheap sequencer but has a few nice gems in the soundbanks.

Another vote for the Ultranova. I got one refurbished for about four bills for my nephew. He wanted more of a ROMpler, so I got him a Yamaha MX61, and ended up keeping the Ultranova for myself. It has a nice Fatar keybed, sounds good, 3 osc, 3 LFOs (iirc), & FX, and it's surprisingly deep
