My "workhorse" synth is an Optimus MD-1200. Yes, the mass market
keyboard from Radio Shack. It has great sound, isn't overused (because
no self-respecting musician would buy his gear at RADIO SHACK!), and
provides most of the features I really need in a synth. It has pretty
decent drums on it, too. I can't count the number of times some other
synth player has stood there speechless at the idea that I'd use this in
preference to the cult-classic Juno 106 on the next shelf.
Different strokes. I *love* my Juno, and wouldn't give it up for
anything... but the MD-1200 is the one that gets the most use. At $200,
you just can't beat it for the price.
