  1. Another great specimen from behind the curtain. Not to sound facetious but I can’t help expressing my appreciation for someone with that many synths who uses an ironing board for a stand.

  2. A commie analog poly synth! I want one!!

    And about the ironing board – the struggle is real! If you start collecting vintage synths you’ll run out of things to put them on sooner or later!

  3. how are all those organ sounds coming out of something purely analog…id say theres gotta be some sample waveforms in there surely….
