don't often see dod rack stuff like that.
u might also have some modulation feedback fun with that ibanez jobby.
The DOD is a keeper. It is the first Spring reverb that I have used that does not have a nasty AC hum constantly...it is super sproingy and quiet at the same time.

The Ibanez is not my cup of tea, so it is probably gonna end up on the chopping block (it is easily trumped by my Modcan Digital Delay).

The Washburn is a weird piece. I found it most interesting as an insert in between an oscillator and filter in the modular. With the EQ, it does some wild waveform shaping. I am going to hold on to it a little while longer and see if it creates more interest.

Picked up an SH-2 for $400 :3:3:3

My second analog mono in my life bought a month after my first. I have no idea how I lucked out. Typically everything on craigslist in my town is called "vintage" and "classic" and marked up double, whether it's a Yamaha PSR whatever or a forgotten horrible sounding Roland EP. There's a TR-55 on for $275 right now

Grabbed a Juno 106 from Craigslist for $50. All the chips were bad, so a trip to the SynthSpa was in order. Finally got it back two months later and it works great! Not a bad deal in all. Also just grabbed an Eventide Space.

ATT Modded 606 with Kadi Midi
Quicksilver 303 with USB Midi. This rocks as it sequences my midi gear and it's envs can snap and accent them.

Let me know if you want help repairing that Roland :-). (I'm assuming that Shame Tunnel is in the US, otherwise perhaps not practical)

I reconditioned an S-10 sampler from the dead, all the way to getting the QD working. I find it sometimes frustrating but always rewarding to be able to fix stuff.

Shame Tunnel is located in the frozen wastelands of Alberta.
but I may PM you for some advice.

It's looking like I'll be coming to Chicago in March, so maybe I'll take you up on that offer..

Heh. My first sampler was a Roland MKS-100. I hated that thing. I just resurrected an ESi 4000, and put an awesome, spankin' new SCSI Zip Drive and "Turbo" option in it. State of the fuckin' art...
Perhaps all pleasure is only relief.

I saw somewhere (bookmarked and forgotten) that there was someone trying to take some open source hardware that emulates floppies so you can replace the drives with SD cards and make it work as a QD as well. If that happens, and I hear about it, I will be on it very fast. The problem they were trying to solve was finding timing diagrams so I pointed them to the online S-10 service manual which has some of that.

Either or both are more than welcome.

Yes the 40% off with extras tempted me as well but I talked myself out of it. Pretty broke right now and I don't really sit at the computer much other than for recording.
