Lives for gear

Nice. The fact that you have original modules adds to the sound no doubt.

The first sequencer recording I ever heard was Rubycon - and I have been obsessed ever since, hence my VST mock up earlier in the thread - but I really feel the need to get a hard set up so might give a clone an audition. You can get good authentic tones from Roland synths, though they give a distinctly 80's flavour to any sequence - 'Thief' period.

I was lucky to catch the Froese / Franke / Schmoeling incarnation a few times, and the ripples of appreciation that spread through the crowd whenever a sequence started was always a spine tingling moment.

Its funny that Franke's set up seamed incredibly futuristic, now they look like proper 'vintage' instruments, all wood and metal, more like a piano or harpsichord.
