Video: Akai AX80 Demo by Syntezatory

The blue and orange florescent LCD displays use a simple and intuitive bar-graph format to show all its parameters and values, making for one of the best on-board displays ever!

The AX-80 has the privilege of being the first pro-keyboard produced by Akai, released in 1984

Christmas Chip-Tunes Album Free

 Wp-Content Uploads 2008 12 8Bitjesus

I’ve been working on a new album for the past few months and am releasing a free MP3 download of the first half - sort of a preview, I suppose. The album is entitled 8-Bit Jesus and contains 9 tracks thus far. Each one is a chip-tune version of a classic Christmas song done in the style of a different NES game.
