    Yes ^^^^^ That/Them + a whole load more bands of a similar ilk. In a word - Synthesizers
    I have a bunch of them collecting dust in my attic, along with the rest of my 'home studio' as was.

    Then, of course, there was a certain lady Prime Minister.
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.
