I've just dug out some original receipts for old equipment:
1978 Sony TC 377 reel to reel, £185 now £1,052.
1979, Korg MS10 synth' £225 now £1,128.
1982, Arp Quartet string and brass machine £375 now £1,312.
1984, DX7 synth £1255 now £4,000.
1986, Drumtraks drum machine £550 now £1,598.
1988, Atari 1040 + monitor and pro 24 software £795 now £2,114 a few months later Cubase came out and that was an upgrade for £258.
Now you can get all of this 'virtually' and a lot more in Garage Band on an iPhone. Kids of today don't know they're born :)
Still chasing the dream, pop superstar by this time next year :lol:
P.S. I used this http://www.in2013dollars.com/uk/inflati ... amount=795
