Well I was 10 years old in 1970. I first picked up the guitar at 11 and my teenage years were spent with a soundtrack filled with the likes of of Simon & Garfunkel, The Beatles, Deep Purple, Hawkwind, Rush, Santana and similar. But, I moved on and so did my taste in music, pretty much keeping pace with the years but it really started to develop in the late 80's and early 90's with groups like All about Eve, The Mission, Sisters Of Mercy etc so I think I am probably quite out of step musically with most people here on the forum?

I'm not really one of the people who any of these retro synths are aimed at. My main interest has always been guitar although I do love the acoustic piano too. Looking back at all the keyboards I have owned, of which there have probably been around 30, I can say with some certainty that 90% of the time I have rarely used any of the "synth" sounds and always gone for the acoustic presets instead...or used them via midi to control better sounding software instruments. Hence why the whole debate about Original Moog or Copy of a Moog is pretty much lost on me. They are all synths to me and do pretty much the same thing. The sound of a Moog is just the sound of a synth...any synth, it does nothing for me.

If we were talking about a synth that reproduces the sounds of several acoustic pianos or guitars THEN my interest would definitely be piqued :) As it is I will leave this one to those who know about and have an interest in these older synths.
Not so much out of step, as my taste is quite eclectic. All About Eve are a great band - certainly the first two albums - I didn't quite like the change of direction on the 3rd one.

I think the best way to look at the synth debate going on here is to consider your world of guitars, where you would probably, I guess, argue quite strongly that a Fender strat sounds nothing like a Gibson Les Paul? ;) And then all of the different Strat variations will have a different sound? Pair the Strat with different amps, cabinets and effects? Ditto for synths. They all have their unique signature sound and character.

.but the Mini sound has an actual density (or denseness? don't know the right English word for it, anyway I'm sure you know what I mean)
I think the proper English word is "fat." ;)
