Live visual software makers have made Black Friday a kind of ritual, too – which means now is probably the best time to get that VJ license you’ve been wanting. (Bonus: in 2020, you alone may stand between a viewer and an abyss of boredom in a livestream.)
At the dawn of the 1980s, anyone could buy a Moog-manufactured synth for $500 – at their local Radio Shack. And now you can add this distinctive synth for free.
