Haha, oh man. He must really like the date 1984, it's all over his red keyboard.

This was my favorite:
The ALESIS ION. Virtual Analog Synth, like the good 'ole vintage stuff. AND a Vocoder. $500-$600
I didn't know 2003 was vintage. :?

I don't care what he says about the synths, I only have a problem with the fact that he thinks Van Halen is still cool :lol:

Sure, I guess someone has to like that kind of thing - just I couldn't imagine why... :D

Nah, I shouldn't really judge other peoples tastes I suppose.

Although I get a pretty big kick out of this-----

I give the kid some credit.. considering what he could be listening to, old VH is not too bad at all.

And look, the synths he likes actually have keys, which means he PLAYS them vs. just knob-tweaking beat machines that only do make "r2-d2" noises. ;)

Those costom paint jobs are pretty decent actually...
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

I remember when this kid joined the VSE. He used to be kind of involved here too. I'm pretty sure this is old news and he already got some s**t not behind his back. :lol:
bonne chance

I like pre-Hagar Van Halen. I mean... s**t, I should look up the albums. I like 70s Van Halen, I guess. I mean... Dave TV was bullshit. Hot for Teacher? Come on... seriously.
