Of the spheres

The 312 key Chromotone synthesizer is something to lust after. A snip at $1575 USD + shipping.

Though I confess my main aim in owning one would be to irritate people. The actual synthesizer I am after is the Arturia Origin, a hardware synth with swappable modules including my beloved CS-80. Though judging by their sample player, the manufacturers have yet to work out how to use it properly.

And I am still waiting for the EWQL Forbidden Planet sample-based soft synth.

"With no other collection can a user have alien vocal phrases echoing inside of a giant bronze bell."

Oh. Yes.
