There's a British electronica guy named Mu-Ziq (Mike Paradinas) who did his
whole first album, Tango 'n' Vectif, using an Atari ST, DX7, a drum machine
and a couple of effects boxes. He got a lot of sounds out of that setup...

I have an old, cheap casiotone keyboard, and a Casio CZ-5000
semi-professional synth. I'd love to collect synths but it's an expensive
hobby, even more so than collecting computers...
