Electronic musicians? Working with machines?

Hey all. I make music primarily with hardware synthesizers these days, or at least that's been my inspiration, passion, and driving creative force since I got into it towards the end of 2015. I wonder if anybody else here is doing the same? I've met a few 50/90 folks who work this way, and I want to find more!

Admittedly, I'm having a hard time finding a little corner of the community that I fit into. I'm not trying to be exclusive - it's just that I find it even more inspiring when you have someone to nerd out with about the shared creative tools that you may be using.

I'm kinda ambivalent about gear lists, but I'll share here if anyone else is interested in doing the same. Most importantly: Please drop a line in this thread if you plan on making electronic music of any kind, or are working with hardware synthesizers and such. I'd love to hear your work throughout the months!

I have a bunch of synths, some dating back to the 70s and 80s (my gear list is here http://headfirst.www.idnet.com/about_music.htm ) and they will absolutely be making an appearance this summer.

The Minilogue is a lovely bit of kit, as is the MS-20. I'm definitely a Korg fan.

I'm working on two electronic tracks at the moment, but I predominantly use soft synths included with my DAW (primarily FL Studio).

I only own 2 "real" synths, a cheapo e media keyboard, and the Roland GR-55 Guitar synth.

I'm messing with modular synths a bit and it will absolutely show up here. But I'm getting off to a slow start, have gigs and social commitments and so forth.
