  1. This synth is quite well done – can make some interesting outcomes – but I can’t help thinking that this kind of synth will be beneficial of a few more processor generations. I think back to the old g3 days and some great advances have been made over the years – Aalto Diva etc are the future of va synths – now all we need is a time machine. Off to smoke a blunt and wig out with my synths. Peace GCB 🙂

  2. Only in extreme cases off oiily skin should a person even occasionally was
    thei face with regular bar soap. You can easily judge the standard by checking the number of students.
    Skin type is determined by pore size, tone, and texture.
