  1. The reality of it is that the early days of synths were only for people with money.

    After a while, companies began to create comparatively less expensive synths for the have nots while still catering to those with the means to buy the synths that everyone really wanted.

    You had a Juno 6, but you really wanted a Jupiter 8. You had an Axxe, but you really wanted a 2600 etc.
