Join us in about 2 hours at 02:00 UTC for Vintage Comp-U-Talk remembering Dave Smith of Synth and MIDI fame followed by a special Synth Battle Royale XVII LIVE with dedications.


The Prophet-600 was the first MIDI synth. It was thought this was how MIDI jacks would be oriented originally.

@SDF 😍 The old MIDI IN and MIDI OUT ports! My friend Clara even got a Casio with a MIDI THRU too back then. You could pass the data through it to another 90s computer using the joystick port and an adapter. Playing synths together was so fun!
