Last week Hainbach reached the 100k subscriber milestone on his youtube channel, a thoroughly deserved achievement given his level of expertise, knowledge, and warm presentation skills (in a non-native language!). His latest video looks at the Eko ComputerRhythm, a rare drum machine from the early 1970s:
The Eko Computerhythm from 1972 was so ahead of its time that it found almost more fame as a prop in Italian Sci-Fi movies than as an instrument. In a time when a drum machine was all corny preset rhythms, the Eko featured 16 step programming, time division, mixing, individual outs and a punch card memory. Only 15 are known to exist today and it is frequently rated as one of the rarest and most expensive drum machine.
Hainbach released a new album last week and streamed a listening party to celebrate its release alongside his youtube success. Huge congratulations to him from the team!
