Check out this cool video of Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones playing the Fairlight CMI.
This beautiful synth / sampler / sequencer / music system was revolutionary in the late 70’s / early 80’s. Even now the Fairlight system looks and sounds very futuristic and cool.

Now Fairlight makes an audio controller, the Xynergy.
The Fairlight history.
