I have a DotCom 22-space system that I basically designed under
inspiration of the 2600 - 3 VCO's, 2 env, 2 amp, 2 filters (multi and
moog clone), noise, external instrument interface, and then utility
modules - and it's pretty much the end-all be-all for me. There is
literally nothing that I haven't been able to do with it yet (except
for actually finishing my record!), and it continues to surprise me
when I get weird new ideas. It can do super modular weirdness when I
need it to, but it can still make a PWM lead so sweet it'll make you
cry. I've never been  happier with a synth than I am with my DotCom.

But if all you want is a weird sound fartbox, I'd check out the
Doepfer stuff with their multitude of trautonium filters and universal
chaos generators and all that stuff.
