Right now my wife and I own a Korg SV1. Wonderful electric pianos on it. But all I can think about are Junos

Not much, and only one synth.

Generic Yamaha Digital Piano
Toy Piano
Harmonium
Korg MS-20 Mini

I got the harmonium for the equivalent of 60 US bucks. It sounds kinda awful and it's a pain in the ass to play, but I found it to be a valuable tool for composition, especially writing melodies. I also like how it transports you to an older era.

I've developed a bit of a keyboard habit too. My list goes:

Farfisa Compact Deluxe
DuBreq Stylophone
Crumar Performer
Crumar Roadrunner 2
Casio VL-Tone
Casiotone 202
Casio CT-640
Melissa & Doug Toy Piano
Arturia Microbrute
Yamaha VSS-200

I also have some MIDI modules/samplers:

Roland D110, Kawai K4, E-MU Proteus 2, Akai S900, E-MU e6400, Roland SP404

I can still only play keyboards with my right hand, and not very well at that. Hey, seemed to work just fine for Depeche Mode....

Access Virus kb with update. Such a beast of a keyboard.

But with KONTAKT running fantastic 3rd party libraries in addition to the incredible Spectrasonic Omnisphere, I can't see myself needing anything much more for the work I do.

So cool! My buddy has one of these and it makes a better bass guitar sound than a bass guitar.
