Subject: [AH] MKS-80, Jupiter8, Virus: Are they apples and oranges?

I know this may seem like a tired issue, and it was to me until I came up
with around 800$ and started to think about which synths to buy. Does
anybody own both an MKS-80 and a Virus? What are there relative strengths
and weaknesses? If you only had the money for one, which would you go
for. . .or rather, which would you go for first?

I've heard some people complain about slow envelopes on the MKS-80 and
sloppy sequencing. If that was that, I wouldn't even consider it further,
but I know these kinds of complaints are often related to computer,
interface timing problems.

Any input would be appreciated.
