this arrived a day early despite brexit.
it's a synthesizer using two c64 sid chips
ie, two different flavors of commodore 64 sound chips with parameters controllable via knobs or midi. View attachment 36966
My moto x4 has been dying a slow painful death for the past 3 or so months, and I needed a new, preferably better phone for around 300 bucks since I think spending much more than that isn't worth it for the kinds of things I use a phone for. Oh and I need it to be small, I would get a phone with a 4 inch screen if those were still a thing. Narrowed it down to either a pixel 4a or a samsung s10e, the s10e is definitely the better choice by a slight margin but for 300 bucks I'd be getting a refurbished one vs a new 4a. In the end I decided to go with the s10e crossing my fingers hoping it lasts longer than the 2 1/2 years I got out of this moto x4. (pretty good phone otherwise)
Also, really looking forward to be able to take much better photos.
