I passed one up for $100. Should've gotten it simply to have poly-sequencing :\

Sure using a computer and vst's will be by far the cheapest method as there's plenty of free good ones.

However having a keyboard is always handy even if you can't play (like me!)

I use an Alexis Micron and it's totally superb and as it's got a built in sequencer you just send the midi clock from the ESX and away you go. They are getting hard to find cheap but see if you can get a demo, BTW the Akai Miniak is the same synth too.

Thanks for that short delay trick. Nice one.

I'm using a Blofeld tabletop right now. it's not as hard hitting as the tribes are to my ear, but it fills in some sonic gaps nicely. The pads are good and the arpy/sequencery/keys are good and the poly patches are good. And it's multi timbral and poly out the butt. You can put up to 16 timbres on a single MIDI channel, then pitch them different to make chords. Run both of them through a little reverb to smear the sounds together and Bob's your uncle.
