Should I record some more? Any ideas of what style?
Go full-on Giorgio/Donna Summer!!!
I fully support this venture.

I've got some idea brewing, mentally. Let's see if I have some time tonight to record something quick.

If you're going full Donna Summer as well, may I suggest finding someone who can do a decent H Jon Benjamin impression to sing?

Slight delay on getting the song done for you folks, but here's a bit of an update...

Drove two hours out of the city to help my parents with some end of the season things and on the way back, I stopped off at a shop and, well...

Also, I gotta get an Omnichord.

I love your setup sooooooo much!

I’m pretty jealous of your setup — plus you have an Omnichord!! :?

My next comment was going to be “damn, if you paid $1700 for another juno, why not spend $1500 and grab that Polysix instead for a different flavour”

I paid nowhere near the $1800 (half 👀) for the ones that are going for sale at Paul's (they've had two recently), and this thing has been serviced too. Though I might restore the factory patches because the ones the previous owner(s) made are less than stellar.

A polysix is cool for sure! Maybe if/when I sell my Moog Prodigy and Roland SH-2000, which aren't sparking joy for me...

Yeah! The Omnichords are FUN. I wish mine was midi, but I got mine at an antique market for a song. Has the original hardshell "leather" case and manuals too!

Honestly, like with everything I do, the gear I have is ridiculous and more than I deserve. But that's why I'm trying to write and record more to get into the "okay, you might suck at what you do, but at least you're putting it to good use!"

In more capable hands, this stuff would really rock!
