In this day, if money was no object, I'd buy OB-X and OB-8 or maybe split it and buy an OB-Xa and a Two Voice.
if you want good sound you have to suffer .. of course not for the "where is the sysexdump, it has CC ?" people.
I only say the ulimative Oberheim in terms of sound .. the sem clones do not have the same level.
it's about half as bad as a poly boog system can save certain parameters somewhat globally
