Analogue Lives! (SOS/Muzines)

Postby BillB » Fri Mar 12, 2021 6:58 pm

Another great SOS article published on Muzines

http://www.muzines.co.uk/articles/analogue-lives/9541

Oh, the 1992 perspective on analogue. :headbang:

Nerdy - delicious - fascinating - and frustrating, to read the various quoted prices for venerable gear. How would all of us use that time machine?!

Thanks as ever, Desmond :thumbup:

It's a good one, that, yep! :thumbup:

We had a fun Twitter thread a little while back, where I was posting small ads, like the one from the guy wanting to exchange his Jupiter 8 for a D110...

If there are Twitter folks here who aren't following my feed @mu_zines, you should, it's quite fun occasionally! ;)

Some gear is still cheaper now despite its ‘antique’ status.

Yep. The "D110 to Jupiter 8" ratio has changed quite a bit these days..! :lol:

Agreed, and then we also have to factor in - what does a month's salary buy? As a result of Korg, Behringer and others, the answer is, a lot more than it did back in the day, especially the 70's - but in some cases even in the 90's.

So the time machine only needs to take us back 20 years.... surely that makes it much easier to build?

Thanks for being so supportive, although to be fair, I think you have already created the closest we are going to get to a time machine... www.muzines.co.uk :bouncy:

Awesome... if we could just go forward five or ten years, I could skip a boatload of work... :lol:
