I never really thought much about it and maybe cause I grew up with most of it, but I collect a lot of old things. For example I own about 7 Gameboy originals (half are modded), 4 Gameboy Pockets (all modded), old keyboards (synths), old video games, the list goes on.
Recently I got back into the love of Apple. I seem to do this every once in a while and this time I landed on the Original Macintosh. After doing a load of research I finally decided to buy a Macintosh SE (and I have an SE/30 coming in the mail). I don’t know what my ultimate goal is with own these, but from passed experience I like to take vintage things and repurpose them.
I’m a programmer by trade, I’ve been developing iOS applications since I graduated high school and the idea of programming Macintosh’s just seems really cool. I don’t have BASIC understanding but luckily I live in an age that allows documentation to be accessible relatively easily. Especially in technology and programming.
What I’d love to do is create a simple 4 voice tracker (chiptune) program on my macintosh and maybe play these songs live one day. I’m already due for a Gameboy LSDJ concert towards the middle of the month. Lets see where this old technology takes my imagination.
