Hi Very Happy

I was watching the music video of Ice Age by How To Destroy Angels, in which appear:

Not many people have Trent Reznor's email address to be asking Very Happy

The second one is a "Realizer"

Or at least its shell:

Well bad news about the synthesizer we see at 3:00. It's supposed to be a PPG Realizer. Very rare, only 2 were produced because the technology in it required much development at that time & made it so expensive. Unfortunately after discussions & confirmations from the synth creator himself, you only see a Realizer's external case, the screen/inner is a Fairlight. Another great expensive machine from the past, sort of hybrid between synthesizer/sampler, but less rare.


(from youtube).

Heh... that makes sense. The display screenshot looked like a Fairlight to me in a way, but since I've never seen a Fairlight in that style of case I wasn't 100% sure.

Oh. I thought it was gear from the gearhead of the group. Was it Ross Somebody-or-other? I thought these guys all had tweeter accounts for access to their fans. Maybe not. Sorry if my advice was not helpful.

No big deal, was just having fun with you.

I happened to have heard a previous discussion of this before so I had the answer off the top of my head.

Thanks for answers Very Happy

I've seen on Twitter that How To Destroy Angels responded to fans questions from on Reddit. Too late Razz

btw it's not so important, it was only a curiosity Rolling Eyes
