Hello, everyone. Haven't posted here in years (last posted about an ARP Solus which seemed dead, but has recently been resurrected by a friend of mine). Anyway, I attended today's "Flea at MIT" in Cambridge, MA, near the famed university. Saw all sorts of computers, audio gear, test equipment, etc. Within about five minutes of entering, I came across an outdoor space where stuff was still being set up. The first thing which drew my attention were the numerous Sinclair computers from the early '80s sitting haphazardly around the booth. I scanned the booth, and when my eyes reached the ground, I spotted something which a friend had pointed out to me on eBay years ago, but I hadn't done much thinking about since: a Triadex "The Muse" sequencer/synthesizer, along with it's matching Light Show module!
I didn't recall what it was, or what it did, but I knew it might be something special. I asked the seller what it was, and he thought it was some sort of color organ (and I spent the rest of the meet thinking it was something along those lines, until I got home and looked it up online). I asked him what he wanted for it, and he responded with $40.
Rather appropriate that I found it at the MIT flea market, since it was designed by two MIT professors back in the early '70s.
I got it home, unearthed the main unit from it's box (both still have at least most of the original packaging), plugged it in, turned it on, and it worked! Some of the sliders are stiff (need to get some Faderlube, methinks), but it lights up, and produces sound. Haven't tested the Light Show module yet, but it should be interesting. Kinda wish I'd gotten the Amplifier module with it, but I'll live.
