The Open Door: Macintosh, MIDI, and Music [1988]

“The synthesizer and computer are going to become the folk instrument of the 80’s”

Happy New Year Everybody! Here’s a great promotional short video from Apple Inc. circa 1988 showcasing the midi sequencing and sampling capabilities of the Macintosh Plus computer. It features many top music celebrities and musical pioneers of the time – endorsees include Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Tony Williams, Laurie Anderson, Santana and more. Lots of kool keyboards and synthesizers to see in action. The video kinda speaks for itself and it is a very fun view.  Enjoy!!
