I've mentioned the Technos Axcel in the past (super rare '80s super synth with amazing display/interface), but here is one in action, wonderfully demonstrated by a rather familiar-looking man who appears to have learned English phonetically for the purpose of this demo. Be sure not to miss Part 2 for the 'drawing waveforms with your finger' money shot.

Brilliant. It seems that he installed some sort of Axcel resynthesis implant in his own head, because that's by far and away one of the strangest accents I've heard outside AT&T's speech synthesis labs.
Since this is the most awesome synth demo I'll ever see, I guess there's no reason to look at any other synth demos ever again. Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention now. Think of all the time I'll save in the future!
Brilliant, especially for it's time, but you can't set out to make a classic synth and hope to succeed. These things tend to happen by chance, for instance will anyone ever really surpase the more 'simplistic' and yet classic sounds produced by the moog or TB303?
You're slipping Tom. Please quit that real job of yours and spend all day scouring youtube and such to bring us free videos and geeky stuff. I liked it better when you used to do that. I'd do it myself but I'm only awake four hours a day. Anyway your landlord will understand.
