Take an Atari ST, 4 budget synths from 1988, and spend months seeing how far they can go – all while staring at a black-and-white CRT! I took me over a year to make this given most of the equipment was DOA (Dead on Arrival) and keeping in mind there’s another part coming later this year.
Massive thanks to mu:zines and archive.org for their incredible collections. This led me to all the cheapest gear that people were actually using back in the day. Thanks also to all those I reached out to who verified most of the findings and gave me amazing insights to the gear of the day.
Gear used: Atari 520ST (mostly), Roland MT-100, Yamaha MusicStation PSS-580, Kawai K1, Yamaha EMT-10, Dr T MIDI Recording Studio, Cubase 1.5 and Rotel mini system.”
