Re: A Good Hardware Synth for Under 500

It's also worth considering the resale value if you ever want to get rid of it. MS2000s are increasingly rare and desirable. MicroKorgs are so common that in 10 years time they will be pretty much worthless.

The Waldorf Blofeld is a really amazing synth, especially for money. The interface/screen more than makes up for the lack of knobs. I would, however, recommend listening to a LOT of demos before getting one. It's unashamedly digital, and has quite a brittle, unique quality to the sounds you'll get out of it, which I love, but it isn't for everyone.
