is it possible that the sound most people associate with CEMs might have to
do with other factors?

a 4voice was made for a different genre of music than a jupiter 6. progrock
horns as opposed to synthpop. so maybe the year when the synth was
manufactured has as much influence on the sound as the components.

if you listen to a JP8 and JP6, the difference is substantial.. but the
differences of an OBx and OBxa aren't as extreme. so i dont know if you can
blame the sound of the JP6 on curtis chips alone...

how much does the way a CEM is designed into a circuit change its vibe?
