All this talk of the Juno 106 over on one of the Group Buy threads made me a little nostalgic for the old days.
Let's see...I don't remember exactly...in late 1983, I had considered the Roland Bassline (TB-303?) and Drumatix (?) CV-controlled combo, the Ensoniq Mirage (which had just come out), and MAYBE the DX-7...I ended up buying none of these and wasted my money on something SO STUPID I'm embarassed to be any more specific
In early 1985 I finally bought a Casio CZ-5000 (like 8 CZ-101s w/full size keys and an 8-track sequencer) and a Sequential Circuits TOM Drum Machine. They served me well until 1989 when I bought an M1---which is still with me to this day!
Anyone else up for a stroll down memory lane?
