Part 2 of Scott's journey into the world of the CX5M and C1 Music Computers.In Part 2 of the Retro Synth Video Program Scott dives deeper into the CX5M and C1 Music Computers. These two products were released in 1984 and 1987 respectively and Scott effectively reminds us what it was like using them. Scott covers the "mouseless" world of both products, the lack of a GUI, the use of older computer languages like MSX BASIC (Beginners All-Purpose Instruction Code) on the CX5M and MS-DOS on the C1 and so much more. Check out Part 2 below and when you are ready - Part 3 is now available!
