A true pioneer. Anyone who has ever used a VCS3 or a Synthi A - and I'll bet there are quite a few here - should offer up some thanks.
I attended an evening class in electronic music at the Polytechnic of the South Bank, in London, in the late 1970s. We each had access to a VCS3 and a Revox, and, after the minimum of tuition, we were left to get on with it. You were regarded as a wuss if you connected a keyboard to the VCS3 :) Great fun!
I still have my "tape", in digital format now. Was thinking just the other day that I could see how I could treat it using the vast array of soft synths available nowadays. Liked the idea of basing something new on an original VCS3 piece.
