Seiko's Forgotten Synthwave Dream Machine

video upload by HAINBACH

"In 1983 Yamaha released the DX7, which became the most successful synthesizer of its time. To much less acclaim, Japanese watch-maker SEIKO put out the DS-System in the same year. All but forgotten today, the DS is rather strange - it consists of a home keyboard that can be expanded with an additive synthesizer and a sequencer module. A complete flop when it came it, but rather charming for today's Vapor- and Synthwave schooled ears.
