Hard-Core Gear Porn Friday!!!
Bet you thought I forgot, huh? No such luck. Here we have one of my favorite gear pr0n pictures of all time, of Klaus Schulze live in concert in Linz, Austria in 1980. We can plainly see a pair of MiniMoogs and the trademark Moog modular behind him, as well as a VCS3. My original off-the-cuff spotting said the thing on the right was a Fairlight, but note the one-piece monitor/keyboard, plus the black face of the "CPU." So that's not what it is. The time is right, as the Fairlight CMI came out in '79. Could that be a QASAR M8? I've never seen a picture of one, but its CPU unit was black, I'm given to understand.
In any case, he's playing a CS-80, and aside from the 2600 on his left, I can't make out anything else in the picture. (I think that's a Polymoog under the Minis, though.) It is important to note that, when playing gear of this caliber, a welding helmet must be worn. I copped this pic from the Official Klaus Schulze Website, home of many ridiculous photos.
