HW synths/controllers: Edirol PCR 800, Korg NanoKey (for the LapTop when I'm 
travelling light), Roland P-330 Piano Module and my good old beloved Roland 
JX-8P synth (fully functional).

Midi Interfaces: M-Audio 1010 and Edirol UM-2-ex (for lap top).

Midi stuff for guitars: POD 2.0 controlled by Behringer FCB 1010 (with UNO).

I really don't know if the P-330 will be in use anymore; I bought the Linux 
version of Pianonoteq and I must (IMHO) say that it knocks the sox off almost 

The JX will on the other hand be in use for years to come. I never get tired 
of it and its sound are just great in any mix and almost any music style. It's 
my second one and I keep an eye on the net and buy another one for spare when 
the time and money is right.
