Open Mic: For the holidays, my wish is that you have family, health and peace.
And, yes, since it’s Synthtopia, maybe some wicked gear under the tree, that new app that you’ve been wanting or some great new electronic music….
So, let us know if ‘Santa’ was good to you this year!

Santa got me a Mac book pro so yes very.
The Hong Kong equivalent of Santa brought me a x0xb0x on Christmas Eve, but the damn thing broke on Boxing Day. Fortunately this Santa has a returns policy, and I now have an order in for a TT-303!
It was kinda a poor Christmas, so couldn’t afford any fun synth toys. But, I did get an iTunes gift card so I can get AudioBus and PolySix for my iPad ^_^
similar front here. Got a birthday coming up in a few days though. Hoping for a little birthday cash so I can gets me an Anushri PCB set 🙂
Stunned when “ms Santa” presented me wit a new Mackie MCU Pro! Cubase just got a lot more fun.
I was my own Santa, but I ordered a Moog CP-251 to help continue to close the gap between my analog and digital gear. My effects pedals will be very happy!
Santa brought me a monotribe and Animoog (thanks Tim!)
I got a book I already had, it said :
Thanks for nothing Santan.
Nice! That sounds like a fun combination!
Santa didn’t bring me anything this year… not even a lump of coal. He must of forgot about me lol but i did have family and happiness. Santa will probably remember me in February when income taxes come in. lol
Santa was on a strict budget at my house, and, just as bad, a strict diet. Seems the old man has to watch his cholesterol.
If Korg really introduces new analog synths at NAMM, though, I may have to binge a bit, at least in the synth area.
op-1! Santa came from sweeden this year. Yay me.
Santa got me a week in the hospital. I will be leaving today though.
Hope you’re back up to speed, soon!
That sucks. Hope you have a happy new year!
yeah ended up in hospital myself christmas day with the vomiting bug 18 hours puking but got an electrix eboxx44 + another lpd8
Money! I’m a few bucks away from a Moog Minitaur!!! 🙂
Mrs. Shadow got me a DDVCO from SSL. Santa brought an EMW-300 controller for the EMW-200 mini synth.
Nope Santa can kiss my ass, I got a mug and a pair of woollen socks, I’m allergic to wool, nice one
Santa brought me a rather curious sound module called a Yamaha QY100! the sequencer on this thing is great. Now I can make music anywhere! I’m going to use it to control my Meeblip!
My wife bought me a case for my OP-1 to keep it all safe and cozy!
I was lucky, I got an IO dock for my Ipad and some Itunes money which I spent on WerkBench and Beatsurfing (both of which would be even more amazing with Audiobus hint hint)
Santa got me Cubase 7. So those who say father Xmas does not exist can go €&@! their boots!
I got an Ultranova and I love it!
but now i feel like a spoiled brat 🙁
Don’t feel bad cause “no amount of guilt can change the past and no amount of worrying can change the future”(Umar lbn al Khattab)
New iPad (well, we bought them months ago, but we’re *calling* them xmas presents… 🙂
I’m also more interested in what the taxman might bring. TD-30K?
The taxman is bringing a whole heap of AMT if the pols don’t hurry p and get their act together!
Whoops! Santa’s shipping an Elektron A4 to arrive Sat. Santa might be late paying rent this month
A prophet 08 for me ! My first hardware synth for almost 10 years …
An Octatrack to complete the Trinity. Never felt more complete with just a few machines.
The only thing I got that was related to music was $80 worth of iTunes gift cards. At the rate I buy apps that will last me a couple weeks.
I got a new in the box Launchpad from Amazon…which doesn’t work. And I bought myself Ableton 8 to take advantage of the sweet discount and free upgrade to 9. Wish I had a Launchpad to use with it.
I acquired my first synthesizer (an Alesis Ion) along with a pair of Mackie monitors.
Yes he was!
He brought me a new iPad!!!!
Analogue recording gear and lots of booze from Santa (aka) Myself.
A MakeNoise Math (at last!).
My retailer received a few the week before christmas.
Santa, (a.k.a. Father-in-Law) hooked me up with this: http://www.behringer.com/EN/Products/X1222USB.aspx
A Leslie 910. 100 watts of spinning, screaming power. Also a Minimoog percussion controller signed by Carl Palmer.
Heavyocity Damage taking advantage of the discount. Oh, and a V-Synth GT!
I had requested an Alesis Micron, but my Santa (my bride) gave me a new iPad. In one way or another, I got a incredible synth. ^^
THANKS synthtopia I got my meeblip today and would have had a rather dull christmas if I hadn’t found out about the deal. Turned it on and went to town had fun with it for hours playing with an apegiator coming from my microkorg then some tempo delay from my ef303 FUN!!!
Santa brought a Jupiter 80 v2 and Audio Komplete 6. Many thanks Santa !
