  1. i had a wayfar MIDInes for a while

    it was a perfect combo for the Octatrack, considering how it handled MIDI

    fun little synth, especially the sample channel

  2. This put through guitar pedals, or Hainbachs Wires etc will generate a near infinite set of naughtiness. As does any Yamaha prs keyboard of the same era. Leap over the 80’s,90’s,00’s in a single pound (remembering to land on one knee) oh the pain. That’s where the parameters will be.
