FAIRLIGHT = PET SHOP BOYS = PET SHOP BOYS = FAIRLIGHT

I fell in love with this instrument when I saw this on the British Top Of the Pops live show for some of my all-time favorite songs like 'Always On My Mind'. (I think they used an Emulator for 'Its a Sin').

I am in my early 30s now...I was a kid back then and used to drool of synths.

80's music is still my favorite and thats why I like Yamaha, Roland over Korg in general since Korg has a more of 90s+ sound.

If I had the money, I would buy this for the nostalgia! Hell yeah!

Until then I will use all the sampling on my Apple Logic, Yamaha, Korg and Roland hehe.

Is that Victor Wooten playing bass in the background? I kept hoping we'd see more of him, instead of this $20k lightpen w/ a computer. Maybe you could sample him 8-bit/16k and transpose and loop it.
