Sorry if the list goets a couple of copies of this, my mailer is acting up. 

>Soon I will have a LAMM MemoryMoog and I'm sure it'll be #1 :)

same here.  i keep saying I am gonna get my MM+ LAMMed, but I always find 
some smaller thing to buy rather than save up the $2k for the upgrade.  I 
have to say that i have played with NOTHING that (in my mind) would come 
close to a MM with the linntronics upgrade.

>For me when I played the MemoryMoog the sounds were exactly what I wanted.
>I feel great playing it. 

Exactly.  Moog synths seem to have a very nice playability factor for me, I 
sit in front of my mini and memorymoog and tweek/play for tweeking/playing's 
sake more than all my other synth's combined.

I am sure, and more power to them.

A very good point.  And what about the new oberheim? or doepfer? Or even 
"fringe analog" companies like waldorf?  These are the kind of companies 
that we can should all hope stay around for awhile.
