Yeah.  To me, my additive digital synth sounds far better in about one hundredth of the space and cost

Wakeman is master of the Mini-Moog.  He says he can hear the sound it will make just by looking at the front panel before playing a note, though I've never understood how given how much variation there was in early editions.

And by his own admission they are constantly breaking - I think he said he had a dozen at one point so that there were enough to last a tour.
