Ridiculous ways to use synthesizers

Class. :lol:

Forget synthesisers and drum machines, I just wish Nokia would make some reliable phones for a start!

Ha ha, the people most worried about the CS's safety are people who've plainly never played a CS.

I thought this performance was surprisingly expressive, though.

i actualy liked it. it's always fun to see what somebody can make with something they don't know what it should do. creativity is always there.

like this, it's not synth related but...:
i always liked them!
