This Analog Synth Was Inspired By Blade Runner

Efdemin Is Selling His Deckard's Dream Blade Runner Synth On Ebay Kleinanzeigen

Deckard’s Dream is modeled on the famed—and extremely rare—Yamaha CS-80. 

If you want to prove the sci-fi credentials of your newest analog synthesizer, Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner is a pretty good name to drop. Roman Filippov from Sputnik Modular has done just that with his new DIY project, Deckard’s Dream. The synth was named after a scene from one of the film’s alternate endings that features Vangelis’ iconic and spacey synth work in its full-blown grandeur.

Deckard’s Dream is modeled as a rack unit version of the immense Yamaha CS-80. It features 8-voice polyphony, so you’ll have no problem producing all those insane string drones that made the film’s soundtrack so amazing. Check out the scene below.
