I don’t remember exactly what Roland sythesizer I had in 1986 or so but it wasn’t their flagship top of the line but one a notch or two below.
The big problem was the time I spent programming its sounds took away from the time I should have been practicing and learning music theory.
A year ago I used FL Digi on this silly little Tablet to record a tiny song. I did use a tiny Zoom stereo mic to record the stick dulcimer.
Lately I’ve s started writing using synth emulations by Arturia in Cubase and I’m finally able to use synthesizers as real instruments instead of as a crutch.
