No, I can't see my TV any more. I know it still works because I sample from it and there's a strange flickering glow that isn't in time with any LFOs.

At one time year and half ago I owned this at once in my collection along with other stuff

x2 Juno 60's and 1 Juno 6
x2 CS2x
X3 JX3P's
x2 Juno 106's
DX7IID and IIFD
x 2 Kawai SX240's
x4 Monotribes


As of now still own x2 Kawai's and x3 monotribes

I still own the stuff listed above but not in doubles anymore. It was damn fun running the doubles are triples all at once with midi though!

It was very hard for me to sell my second Juno. I had backed out 3 times before I finally let it go.

I think two of something is definatly hording. esp. if multitimbral. had 2x sh-101's once but only for a few months. wish i'd of held on to it longer, 'cos they've skyrocketed in price.

It's not so much hoarding if it's in a closet. If the actual studio itself is un-usable because of too much stuff, either to mind manage or physically getting in the way or poor ergonomics, or you have to spend time wiring every time - that's a problem.

My console has 32 mono faders and 14 stereo faders with a total of 84 input jacks.

ALL 84 inputs are used up, there isn't a single 1/4" jack empty.

Because there is no channels left, the following sits in a closet at the back of the studio, completely unplugged and unused:

Roland: Juno-6, Juno-106, JP-8000, MC-202, TR-707, TR-727
Yamaha: CS-5, CS-15, D1500
TC Electronic: D-Two, M-One XL
Lexicon Vortex
Moog Prodigy
A bunch of DBX compressors and EQ's
A bunch of pedals, including some Moogerfoogers


The stuff that IS plugged in I use more often than those listed, or they are redundant.

I'm not desperate for cash, so I don't see a point in selling, but at what point do we get into hoarder territory
Get a patchbay? And a tall rack? I like the angled ones.

Trade the roland stuff for the stuff that has rack versions? But...Roland especially is collectable nowadays, and it might not be a bad idea to look into safely putting them into storage for 10+ years. On the other hand, if something goes wrong with them while you aren't using them, you'll feel crappy for holding on to them and not selling.

Moog is probably in the same boat.

But yeah, a nice patchbay + rack station with EQs, compressors and pedals wired in is fun! I like the samson s-patch because you can jam on the switches on the front while a mix is playing back. Or you could go for a high tech route and get something MIDI controlled.

Putting old stuff in storage is asking for problems. Old gear that doesn't get used regularly dies more than gear that does sometimes. I'm no tech but my tech buddy told me some such thing about caps dying without current or something....

Yeah I used to play 2 Juno 60s like a split or dual keyboard.

I found it really enjoyable.


Also having 2 of the same you struggle less with getting them to work with each other even if the patches are different. Hope that makes sense.

I would call that "efficient density", or "density efficiency".. not hoarding.
