Dr Blankenstein (Drew Blanke) builds his Atari Punk Consoles (3 Year Anniversary Video!)
I can not tell you how excited I am to finally put this video up, or should I say... A video like this (a fast motion build video). I am equally excited that today (meaning 12/13/2015 at the time of this video, about 12X regular speed) is the 3RD YEAR ANNIVERSARY of my version of the ATARI PUNK CONSOLE! Here is the original video if you haven't seen it: https://youtu.be/v-VsaC33edU Since uploading that video I have sold HUNDREDS of units to countless talented musicians and art collectors from all over the globe. This video is a kinda thank you to all those people, giving you a FAST GLIMPSE of all the work that went into your little video game sounding drone synth. When people say "hand made synth"... they usually don't get much more hand made than what you see here. I am excited to share that experience with all of you. I really do hope you enjoy.
So how the video goes is... I was building a batch of 6 APC 2600's when a ton of holiday orders rolled in at once. So, I needed to start to finish a few of them off one by one. So, I only really finish ONE Atari Punk Console... BUT, you are really watching me prepare a batch of six of them. Sorry about all the weird lighting and camera angles, I still haven't gotten the perfect camera for these sorts of shoots and my space is limited for lighting and tripods... so it is what it is. :)
Well I guess that's it for now... here's to another year of making crazy sounds together. Thanks for all who have grabbed an APC 2600 from me over the years, and for those of you who haven't... well... I hope to speak to you soon. Be well, have a happy and healthy holiday season.
