  1. Seems to be a lot of people confusing the early 80s "Synclavier II", of which the FM/additive synth part is modelled in the Arturia synth (not including the sequencer or later mono sampling options), with the later, mid/late 80s "Synclavier PMST" systems, with the huge racks, beautiful V/PK keyboard, 100KHz stereo sampling, direct-to-disk recording and so on.

    It was these later ones that were the production workstations that Trevor Horn etc used. The earlier generation was really a straight synthesiser/music system, and these did not selll for $150K+ like the later hyper expensive ones (they were still expensive, of course).

  2. The original Synclavier with additive and FM went for around $13,000 in the US. Adjusted for inflation, that would be around $37,500 now.
