@LyingDalai hey, sorry for chiming in late here. Ive bought and sold the TVS twice now…
And both times I sold it was for the same reason.
Pros: wonderful sound, great if you can play the KB, still great if you cant because of the sequencer tricks and native implementation of KB alongside it. Overall a joy to play with.
Cons: I found I wasnt using it as much as I enjoyed looking at it, turning it on for 10’ and jamming but never really composing with it because of its (very) basic Midi.
The lack of patch memory, as romantic, nostalgic and liberating as it may be, was just a pain in the end. The onboard sequencer is a gimmick rather than anything really capable/usable and and the knobs were loose, small and sometimes 1-2 would “jump” up/down a semitone while playing back. It was a real pain. The patch panel on top was nice to have although not that useful unless expanded with other euro.
The OB-6 is far more studio friendly, has a wider palette of sound, an AMAZING filter, polyphonic, USB, stable, easy to use and easily repaired.
I dont want to bash the TVS because it was the fattest sounding beast Ive ever played with, but the sound is not very versatile. In the end I found I sold it and dont miss it.
Dont worry, keep your OB-6 and maybe opt for a SEM which has a smaller footprint, more reliable and can fill some of that melancholy
