Okay, we hit some sort of nerd singularity just now. Start with David Hasselhoff’s cheeky, cheesy “True Survivor.” Remake it on the 8-bit SidTracker 64 app. You’ll swear all of this actually happened in the 80s, even if it didn’t. Retrorgasm.

And yes, this gem is included in the app.

Please roll down your windows and ghetto-blast this one this weekend.

    On real news, there’s this Yamaha Reface synth thing…

    • Jaybeeg

      Yamaha has released a teaser video hinting that they’re going to release…. Something. Sometime. For an unknown price. There’s no news yet, unless you work for Yamaha and are willing to share pics.

        A new product teaser from one of the most well know brands IS news. Heck, there have been posts based on less information and for less iconic brands.

        Besides, it’s not “something” to be released “sometime” etc. You probably haven’t been paying attention or don’t know how to put 2+2 together.

        We already know it has a keyboard (with “piano quality keys” no less according to the teaser).

        We also know it will be revealed in Summer NAMM. Fuck, we know the exact date and time of the release, as there’s a countdown on Yamaha’s page: https://yamahasynth.com/

        We also know it’s retro, not just from the teaser 80’s video graphics and tones, but also from the glimpses it provide’s into a CS-style hardware unit.

        Whether it’s VA like AIRA or a new analog remains to be seen, but this is far from a total mysterious “Something. Sometime”…

        I’m betting on an analog keyboard synth a la Korg, based on the CS legacy and styling (well, the styling part is already locked from the video), and with a price below near $1000 – $1500.

          It’s marketing buzz, not news.

        • Couldn’t agree more.

          Well, except I have a feeling i may enjoy this video more than I enjoy the new Yamaha synth. We’ll see. 😉

          • anyway, check the date. that was last week… and it’s more entertaining than a teaser video.
