Korg Electribe ESX-1.

Granted, it stretches the definitions of "vintage", "poly" and "synth" a bit.

On the vintage side, in order of attachment:

Sequential Prophet 600 - The Prophet 5’s punk kid brother is my favourite poly
Roland Juno 6 - So simple, so good
Yamaha TG-500 - a hit of pure nostalgia
Korg EX-8000 - love that filter, hate the interface
Oberheim Matrix 1000 - useful but bland

Akai AX60
Kawai K1r
E-mu Emax (disguised as a Baldwin IKE)

Modest, but trying to avoid re-buying the now hyper-inflated priced stuff that I sold off years ago :bang:

as of today....
89573836_153214439138546_2422780975680323584_n.jpg
I also have a poly6, some juno106/juno6 keyboards, a rhodes and a 2 voice oberheim which I guess is poly even if just barely.

still lusting after a jup4 to complete my roland shrine though.....

Had to pass on one this week as other responsibilities came up but this prophet was a trade

(used to have Xpander, Prophet 5, Microwave XT, Microwave I)

Now I have a Juno-6, a Yamaha SK-30 and an Ambika.
Just finished building (and easily my favorite poly-synth), my Oakleyheim Four Voice :goo:

Made of Oakley ASV voices. Perfect SEM filter. Sounds friggin' awesome.

Rhodes Chroma, with a Stereoping knobby programmer box. And an Oberheim Xpander.

In the rack, an Oberheim Matrix 6r and Matrix 1000 linked to form a 12 voice polysynth.

Very, very jealous. That's the one synth I've always wanted, prices are just too much for me now. While the Prophet 6 is probably in a blind test (to me certainly) more than a match, it just isn't that... :despair:
I'm not buying a maths though, not my idea of fun...

Oh man I can’t even imagine how those 2 sound together!

Chroma Polaris

*cough* Roland U-220 *cough*

Does a Freeman String Symphonizer count? (It's got a pitch bender!)

Howzabout a Roland MKS-10?? (Hey, it's chock-full of IR3109s!)

No?

Okay then. :waah:

Korg DW-6000 - still the original first synth I ever bought, I've never changed the battery either which supposedly should have failed some time ago.
Akai AX80
Moog Liberation - I use it more monophonically but it does have polyphony
Sequential Multitrak
Casio CZ-230s
Casio Casiotone 1000P
Kawai K1m
