I’ve finally decided to buy a new synthesizer. Well, not a new one. One from the 80s. The Roland U-20 is a venerable synthesizer you can still get parts for and is reasonably priced. I am most looking forward to using the built in arpeggiator for that distinctive 80s sound.
Author and illustrator of The Thirteenth Hour Books, which were inspired and pay homage to 80s sci fi and fantasy films. Sometimes, I’ll put out a synth music track or two to go along with the books, and I host a weekly podcast about these and other retro topics. I like to learn new things, so I’ve been working on making little resin figurines based on characters in the books.
