We're having some Dharma Initiative nostalgia today when watching Neon Indian's '80s themed instructional video for the PAL 198X, a mini-synth designed by the forces of Neon Indian and Bleep Labs. This pocket-sized three-oscillator synth lets you plug in other devices and control voltage in order to modulate the sound. This hypnotizing trance of a video instructs users how to use the device, some examples including feeding the synth fresh vegetables and "use lava lamps for slow moving modulation at an ambient family gathering." We're sure that Neon Indian is in for much more than they predict in their closing words, "we may even hope to see you in concert one day at your local symposium or retirement center."
Neon Indian's sophomore album Era Extrana is set to hit shores on September 13, and by purchasing the limited edition Deluxe Package for fifty dollars, they're including your very own PAL 198X. Check out an audio clip featuring just a few of the sounds you can create with the PAL 198X.
