I've searched here & not seen my questions addressed; I've also lurked/studied at vintagesynth.com, but I'm much more comfy here. I'm jonesing BAD for a synthesizer. I had a Yamaha CS-5 in 78 or so, so I'm fairly spoiled for analog tone. I also like knobs, DON'T like menus, interfaces, etc. I'm looking for ARP Solina-type sounds, early Cars, Devo, Kraftwerk- that kind of thing. I will very likely never use it live; it's more for home-indulgence/composing. So after a bit of reasearch, I like the Juno 6 & 60, some of the old Korg, Akai & Kawai stuff, but I'm also intrigued by new dealios like the MicroKorg, Micron(& Ion)& K-Station. Lastly, I grabbed a Kawaii K-3, but it needs repairs. On that note, should I gamble the $85 bench fee to get it fixed, hoping it doesn't eat up my entire limited budget($400-500)or try & find something that's useable right now?
