Many of us have owned, bought, sold, and traded a ton of gear. We all love Elektron stuff, 303s, Moogs, MS-20s, etc… But we must all have a few pieces we love and use more than we thought we would, special pieces that mean more to us than the next guy. Secret weapons and hidden gems. What are yours?
I’ll start us off:
Boss DR-550 MKII - cheesy, great sounds, small and cheap, very versatile piece of kit
Yamaha RX21 - a sort of poor man’s 707. Very charming lo-fi sound palette, nice and muted. Sits very nicely in a mix.
Volca Bass - I used it mostly as a bass module for smooth and huge multi-oscillator de-tuned sounds. Creamy filter, awesome resonance and LFO. One of the most unique pulse oscillators I’ve ever heard. I sold it and miss it dearly.
