ok, since we got the top20 of your personal choice here's the ultimate and "encyclopedia"-compatible highly official one.. the emotional and personal top10/20 is here: viewtopic.php?t=16448&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight= and of course: I do not doubt any1 choosing the Minimoog on #1 here, or any other comments? whats on 2?) so lets try it: 1) <a href=http://www.sequencer.de/syns/moog>Moog</a> Minimoog - is that right? it's the best known synths, it's famous and lots of bands used it, it's obviously a legend!! 2) it's hard to say.. I 'd try the FM Synths, the Moog Modular or the ARP2600 or Odyssey.. any ideas, what deserves this spaace most? 3) suggestions here? I try to put it up from the top.. is that ok?.. So, this is for the Experts, please tell your opinion and please be sure you know about this synths you are talking about.. it's NOT about own it or not.. it's more "historically".. I am SURE, it is hard to get.. but let's try if it is POSSIBLE? Some Ideas, which Synths must be in here: <a href=http://www.sequencer.de/syns/ppg>PPG</a> and <a href=http://www.sequencer.de/syns/waldorf>Waldorf</a> Wave, <a href=http://www.sequencer.de/syns/roland>Roland</a> Jupiter 8, <a href=http://www.sequencer.de/syns/oberheim>Oberheim</a> Xpander/Matrix12 , possibly SEM, OBX (or preferable the OBXA?), OSCar, EMS VCS3/AKS (count them in at the same place for both versions, Moog System 55, Roland SH Series (which one? I'd go for the System 100 historically more important than any other SH one or/and System 100m and 700, D50, DX7,<a href=http://www.sequencer.de/syns/korg>Korg</a> 800DV, MS20, Memorymoog? some more <a href=http://www.sequencer.de/syns/korg>Korg</a>? YAamaha? ARP MUST be in here imo it's the ARP2600 possibly slightly above the Ody? !! and more.. so will be hard.. since they are all enjoyable.. imo the MUST be a Roland in that List, at least I'd guess: the System 100m or 100 or the Jupiter 8 will have their places in a top20 for SURE.. I am synthpop influenced, so I am rolandized?.. I'd expect one of them on the first 3 or 4 ranks..
