Ideas worthy of existance

    Shear Electronics Relic-6

    An 18 Year old kid has captured the sound of the Oberheim synthesizers of the 80's. I am not sure what blows my mind more, the replication of that classic sound of Van Halen's 1984 or the age of the genius that replicated it. Just hearing him sell it on Sound On Sound's coverage at NAMM this year, blows my mind. He makes me feel old and stupid just watching him. I definitely want one of these things, but by the look of his website, and the fact that the waiting list signup must have crashed his infrastructure due to a likely unexpected interest level, I will likely not get one until his work gets picked up by a major manufacturer. Check out the Sound On Sound coverage here on YouTube, or on their Website at soundonsound.com.
