Feel the original excitement for digital synthesis when it first hit the market.

When keyboards and digital synthesizers finally hit the market at a manageable price for the average music lover, it was a real game-changer. Suddenly the tones, rhythms, musical accompaniments and sonic possibilities previously limited to professional musicians became available to the masses. The excitement was palpable—well, at least if these awesome ’80s synthesizer commercials graciously compiled by Create Digital Music are anything to go by.

Whether your new Casio was going to put a metal drummer out of work, or you were going to go rocketing through space with your Yamaha DX100, at the time it did really feel like the possibilities were endless.

Watch an equally awesome video demo of the mighty Alles Machine synthesizer here.
