Legend has it that on December 14th of 1287, the day that lives by the name of St. Lucia's Flood, a metalic artifact was unearthed filled with undecipherable hieroglyphs. Long believed to be forged in the fires of hell, mankind had no idea what to make of it... until someone decided to throw it in the flames of supercollider, as it's common knowledge that hell consists mostly of music amateurs. Unless you are made of the stuff that withstands Vogon poetry, you are strongly advised to stay away from this majestic meditation muzak maker that might haunt you for all eternity (maybe it won't, but are you willing to take that chance?!). Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch'entrate! Synthesizer greatest hits vol. 8, here we come!
