What a great time to be born.

Post by BlackGnosis » Fri Apr 18, 2008 7:06 pm

Ahh 1983., some of my absolute favorite synths came out in my birth year.

The Jupiter 6, The Yamaha DX-7, The Roland SH-101 and MC-202, the JX-3p, the TB-303 was in its second year of production, Oberheim launched the infamous OB-8...

what a wonderful year to be born :)

So fellow explorers what synths came out in your birth year? [btw today is my birthday hence my thoughts about this]

Happy Birthday, BG!

I was born in '71, so according to the VSE timeline, the ARP 2600 Grey Meanie (Phil @ CMS is working on mine) and the EMS Synthi A & AKS were also born.

1978 was a good year for gear....

Actually, that's a rather horrible year.

Seeing that as a baby you have not much in the way of muscles, ,transport, money, teeth or verbal abilities, you couldn't even play them ;)
So fellow explorers what synths came out in your birth year?

Born in 1955 - and old enough to remember Kent State, Hendrix's death etc, but c**p if you were a teenager learning piano. That was it really. And not being able to carry a piano arround I gave up playing music for years and never knew stuff all about synths till two years ago!
