Great resource. Funny how you see the Ondes-Martenot popping up again (Radiohead, et al).

That's top hole. Something to peruse while I listen to Alison Goldfrapp pleasure herself with a theramin.

My First Synthesizer (the top one). Well, it was actually owned by my first high school science teacher - who was also the person that introduced computers into the school. Fond, if geeky, memories ;-)

This was always the lust object but never to be afforded on a paperboy's wage.

If someone had told me then that I'd be able to carry an entire studio setup (Reason running on my iBook) in something smaller than a phone book and costing half (in real terms) what my dad paid for our first family BBC Micro in just over 20 years...

My first synthesizer (also the top one). Ah, those halcyon days, when the CZ101 came out and made those tiny-key jobs sound at least halfway like a real synth. Great stuff, fire.
