Deckard’s Dream synthesizer

Director: Ridley Scott

As seen in:

Deckard’s Dream is an 8-voice polyphonic analogue synthesizer inspired by the cinematic sound of the late 1970s and early 1980s, represented so memorably by the Vangelis Blade Runner soundtrack.  Using technology available today (and in the near future), you will be able to play the Deckard’s Dream with stunning expressive control.
