	Hey Bryan,

	IM(NS)HO, there's only one thing better than an MMT-8.

	Two of them.  Or three.  8 tracks each, but they stack soooo nicely.
>:)  Run three of them, angled appropriately, across the top rail of an A-frame rack.  

	Of course, you could also get a wicked Doepfer MAQ-16/3 or a Notron -
but I figure a couple' grand vs. a couple' hundred bucks - can you
really go wrong?  IIRC, Orbital used to use three of them (may be off
here - a friend says three, but an old gearlisting I read had two
MMT-8's and an HR-16 - they look the same), until they recently moved to
a Notron.
If you're not averse to spending a few grand, forget about anything but
the Notron.

	Of course, if you go the MMT-8 path, you've first gotta *find* a couple
of them.  I wouldn't sell mine for the world, but Daddy's Junky Music
( usually has a few in stock for about $100USD

	- Drew.
