I just found out about this video recently, which is about CGA graphics:

I love the 8 bit guy!!!! One of my favourite YT channels. In fact I bought a vintage synthesiser based on watching his 8 bit keys channel.

What did you buy? I got a Yamaha PSS-470 dating from 1987. Sure it is slated by many as "amateur" or worse, "a toy". But it sounds fantastic and was only £70 (could have been £30 if I had the time and patience for ebay auctions).

I looked up the Yamaha PSS-470 to see what it looks like, and it looks pretty cool!

The 8-bit Guy seems pretty cool as well; I remember watching his video about how graphics worked on the Commodore 64 and NES (I think?). That one is... pretty cool! I liked the part where you see someone filling some squares on grid paper, who scans it into something, which turns it into a sprite for the C64! It's fascinating to know about how these old machines worked! :D

ARP Pro Soloist. Going to try deep sampling it. :helmet
I have crazy expensive keyboards that can do everything but I find the quirky one-trick pony boards are more lovable. :love
