Nick writes: "TV on the Radio has a great video posted to their MySpace page. It sounds like a song composed of one synth track and looks to be run through an oscilloscope. I could be wrong about that. I can't tell what the hardware is. Anyhow, beautiful video. While I was watching I thought to myself, "I wonder why I'm not watching this on MusicThing"? I think it's a vectorscope - one commenter suggests from an SSL 9000. Anyone know more? Anyone willing to buy TVOTR a decent video camera? UPDATE: It looks a lot like a DK MSD200. Thanks, Kåre.

synth? it's clearly a rhodes.
Wavelab does this when you are recording - it doesn't have the same analogue beauty, but is anyhow pretty mesmerizing.
I would guess its the scope from an SSJ 9000 J board, specifically the one at Chalice Studios in West Hollywood. I only can guess at this based on the fact that the folks from tv on the radio (david specifically, who was on the lemonade/maple syrup/cayenne pepper diet at the time) were mixing across the way while I was mixing my album with spike stent for a few weeks in june/jul at the SSL G board there at chalice. btw the nin year zero also was mixed by reznor and a.moulder at that same board. amazing studio, that chalice.
