Seeking "Ghost in the Machine" article for DX7II

Unread post by Bricago » Tue Dec 03, 2019 5:37 pm

Back in June of 2011, Clyde referred to an article in Electronic Musician magazine (May '88) called, "The Ghost in the Machine." He mentioned that it contained info on the firmware versions of the DX7II and that he referenced it often. I took a look through that issue of the magazine and couldn't find it. It's possible he had the date wrong or the magazine (Keyboard?) or that I just missed it altogether.

If anyone knows where this article is, I would appreciate it. Here's the link to the thread where it's mentioned:

Hi Bricago,

it was a typo Clyde made back then - the correct year of that issue(s) was 1989 - see pics:
