Analogue Lives! (SOS/Muzines)

Post by BillB »

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.

Nah, that was in the ballpark:

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

I can't find a single flaw in that argument... :thumbup:

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:
