Why do synthesizers always fly through space in ads?

A catzesizer!? https://youtu.be/SUKJA4UAruw?t=6m20s ;-)

Ha! I remember sitting at my desk once, playing around with the Dexed plug-in just over my laptop speakers. At one point, I produced a meow sound and my girlfriend's cat would freak out any time I'd press a key. Sadly though, that was the only time she ever reacted to any of my sounds - the cat that is.

To come back to the relation between synthesizers and space, which might also be relevant for the next DSI instrument:
I think that the use of the ARP 2500 as a means to communicate with aliens in "Close Encounters" probably played a great role as a cultural signifier.

Ever tried bird call synthesis? ;)

No, but I used to get into call and response games with cardinals by true analog whistling.

Some of them sounds almost like a LFO bird:

That would make a wave table synthesizer or sample synthesizer even more interesting (for cats too).

They're cool birds. I do really miss them.

I've always understood the synthesizer-space relationship as coming from a shared modernity.  The synthesizer is a recently invented instrument that uses modern technology to produce sound.  Space is that domain of modern exploration the depends entirely on technology.  Both are heavily reliant on computers; hence, the relationship.  It makes sense to me.

The printed DSI logo on their boxes is not very large. So if the box is placed on the floor, the table in the background might indicate that it could be a 61 keys instrument. Anyway, I don't wanna get too ridiculous about making guesses based on boxes.

Two short and very recent interviews with Dave:

http://www.musicconnection.com/chats-synth-developer-dave-smith/

So one more announcement later this year, and more and more synths in general.
