A friend in high school had one of those (the original one).  Cool stuff!

If we can get Jem to watch this video I can guarantee he will buy one

http://youtu.be/C1Pl83oqGhg

Warning: contains vintage synths, BBC Radiophonic and Doctor Who.

He will probably buy one anyway, but this will clinch the deal, I'm sure...

He'll sell it anyways, so why bother. :D

I just wish there were more appetite from synth manufacturers to do something new...

I know they are giving the market what they perceive it needs, and the world is obsessed with old analogue gear...


... but re-releasing a 70s design?

Did all the synth designers just up and die in about 1990? Because there has been little real innovation since then.

Well, did you check Elektron Analog Four? It does have some cool ideas.

Also, Schmidt 8-voice is innovating, at least in a no-compromise concept. There's no analog synth with THAT kind of structure, for sure!
