    Da Da Da was by Trio, though Kraftwerk did use Speak & Spell for Computerworld.

    OMD also used a Speak & Spell on Genetic Engineering. Those little old Casio keyboards were great fun and seem to have a bit of a cult following these days.

    I want my old pt30 back, had fond memories of it and i had customised it with a paint job.
    You've got Magix Music Maker 2013 haven't You? That has a few VST plugns and lets you use your computer's keyboard like a music keyboard but my keyboard's a forty five quid USB M-audio Keystation 32 Mini with downloadable free software.

    My parents bought a Casio keyboard for me. I wanted one after watching Adamski on some music programme or the other when the single Killer was released.

    I'm sure it's somewhere up in my parent's attic. I haven't touched it for well over 15 years. I might go and look for it over the weekend and see if it still works.

    I had a Bontempi organ, big thing covered in fake wood panelling with fans that could be heard the other side of the village. I learnt to play it a bit, but my skills were the most basic.

    It did provide a platform to learn sheet music which helped me gain a considerable head start when I started with the guitar. I'm grade 5 with that now, so you could say it worked out quite well.

    Speaking of an earlier post, in my school in music we had little keyboards that played Billy Joels Just The Way You Are. Possibly the same model?

    My first synth as well... (First of many...). Still got it, still works.

    The next one was the Yamaha MK100, which was amazing for the time... Still got that too... It sounds great sampled into Kontakt...
