Why a Rare Sequencer From 1973 Still Inspires

video upload by HAINBACH

"When I first got the Oberheim DS-2A Digital Sequencer in my studio, I got stumped - how can make this part of my whole setup? The connections seemed just too limited and the specs laughingly bad for 2021. Was I stuck with a museum piece? But in working with it I realized something that made me appreciate this rare and vintage instrument from 1973."

  1. The only thing I don't understand is how Oberheim went to all the trouble of making all their other instruments look so noble, and yet this digital sequencer, that I've never heard of before, looks plain goofy. Was this designed on their jazz cabbage day?
