And we have a confirmation...

by Chris Randall

On our Friday gear pr0n picture, I was unsure of what this unit was, and postulated that it might be a QASAR M8, the fore-runner to the Fairlight CMI. However, Todd Fletcher writes in to say:

The thing in question is a Crumar GDS, mother of the Synergy and used by Wendy Carlos (for Tron) & Tangerine Dream as well as Schulze. The CPU & monitor goes with the keyboard on the floor to it's right. It mostly sounds like a DX7, and would probably drive an analog guy like you nuts :-). Nothing even close to a filter in that machine.

Oh, I loves me some digital, make no mistake. But thanks for that spotting. I had a feeling I was wrong there...
