So Much for Instructional Manuals

Had a little Craigslist-driven yard sale today. Mostly cleaning older pieces of musical equipment out of my studio.

Interesting thing happened during the sale of a particularly difficult-to-operate synthesizer. This particular model sported a series of manually programmable oscillators and multi-mode filters -- all sorts of devices of an especially technical nature essentially made for making cool sound effects.

Well, I had the sale ready to go, but couldn't find the instruction manual.

"Great," I thought, "You have to be crazy to buy this thing without the manual."

"No problem," said the kid as he hands me the cash, "I'm sure there's someone explaining how to use it on YouTube."
