I don't believe I've ever had the honor of starting one of these threads. (Sorry @fiddlestickz. You jumped the gun!)

Rhythm Ace FR-8L

It was the music stand that got me. It's like a part of history. Musicians in the 70s could actually still read music!

Snapshot of my most current setup; the Machinedrum mk2 and Modor NF-1m are new. I really dig my silver machines!

I ordered 16GB of Ram and a 512GB SSD for my 2012 Macbook.
I should have done the ram upgrade way before, I know (right now it's still on 4GB... ).

I hope these upgrades will give it a slightly longer lifespan (it's already too slow for basic internet surfing, email and such - and it looks mostly like a memory-related issue because I keep a lot of things open at the same time).

I bought a bunch of AJH Eurorack modules and a Doepfer case to stick them in.

Lusting after this for over a year. CL had nothing for a long time. Joined a FB synth buy & sell group and this appeared on day 1. I bought it for a pretty good price I think? $800 CDN / 530 EUR.




EDIT!

I should also add I bought this beast as well

Should have gone XT. It's the best thing Roland did since JD-990.

True

But I really wanted the V so I just waited for the first well priced unit of either iteration.

My 990 has been waiting for a duet partner for some time now

New month starts well, got the following three things in today:

Roland TB-03 to pair to a TR-09 I already have;

dbx 160X to pair to another 160X I already have, and everyone knows compressors go well in pairs

Roland CSQ-100 to complement the CSQ-600 I already have and also to channel my inner Nick Rhodes - although I don't have an SH-2 yet

Grandmother is in the house!



Going to spend some time getting to know her, then set up my Analog 4 and 0-coast next door for extra patching/modulation/envelopes...

Yoozer, thank you for the reminder!

Yes, definitely I want to finish that vid asap!

I'll put the 1000 on my to-get list...

New wild craziness! The Pipe is a mercurial, slithering instrument that lives in the present.

One out the door though, goodbye SY99.

It's actually one of the nicest looking synths on the market.

Thanks for sharing this, Yoozer. I bought a copy at the nice price I wasn't aware of the anniversary sale, so I appreciate the alert. Do you happen to know how many instruments have already been offered for 48 hours and expired, or how many are left to be offered at anniversary savings? I'd like to check out some more sale items. Thanks for your help.

I don't know, but since a teaser for the anniversary sale apparently had Rhythmic Aura 1 in the first page, I'd guess (and hope) that it's the first of several to come.

edit: Looks like Epic Taiko was the actual first according to their Facebook posts

Nah, it looks like a patchwork cobbled together. Sub37 looks a LOT better, it's oozing classiness. This one, though, nope. Not feeling it.

Still better looking than Neutron, tho. Although overlays are gonna fix Neutron.

Agreed. Easily one of the ugliest synth designs ever made.

The Sub37 does look great, one of the better looking, but the GM does too (just not in the same classy way).
