I'm very grateful for having the possibility to have a very musical living room :D
New nearfield monitor speakers
The Neumann KH 120 monitor speakers were a huge improvement for my studio. Their neutrality, transparency, spaciousness and clarity are
Uhl X3-2 organ
Sounds like a classic electromechanical tonewheel organ
plus a Leslie speaker cabinet - with less than 17 kg!
Inside the organ works the state-of-the-art HX-3 engine from keyboardpartner.de and in the meantime there's even an X4 organ with built-in Neo Ventilator (I'm using
the Ventilator 1 as an external effect).

Nord Stage 3 Compact
Due to the fact that we are thinking of playing also live for an audience I definitely needed a great sounding all-in-one instrument. And the Nord Stage 3 is one of
the best of type: a piano, an organ and virtual analog synthesizer. Superb built quality, super easy to use and program and it weighs only 10 kg.
Korg KRONOS 2 (61)
The ultimative all-in-one workstation with an icredibly wide variety and great sound quality.
I think it will take years to discover all functions!
Nord Lead A1
A polyphonic virtual analog synthesizer. Ideal for warm pads, all kind of lead sounds and mysterious effect sounds. It's such a "musically" sounding synth, and
Clavia's unique morphing function is simply genious!
Korg Pa3X Le
What: an arranger keyboard for "serious" composing and production?
Yes, of course! It's great for jamming and getting inspired, it's providing super-realistic sounds that allow very expressive playing (i.e. acoustic guitars, brass,
woodwind...) and it's a "musical army knife" to create song structures for children songs or other genres very easily.
Furthermore its 76 keyboard with aftertouch is one of the best I know.
Minimoog Voyager Old School (sold)
A monophonic analog synthesizer. No MIDI, no USB, no memory, no menus - only knobs and buttons. One of approx. 700 items ever made. Built like a tank.
If you like the classic warm warm Moog sound there's aren't many synths out there. I even dismissed the new Sub 37 (a fantastic instrument with endless
possibilites) because of its "modern" and in my ears rather "harsh" sound. Whereas I also liked the sound of the Slim and later the Little Phatty that I had before the Voyager (both sounded almost
like the big Moog only with 2 oscillators and a very poor user interface).
OK, now it has MIDI IN thank to Rudi Linhard :)
