In this video the Andromeda deploys an onslaught of non-stop analog sensory bombardment.

No outboard effects were used, only a few instances of the built-in delays and reverb. All sequencing and arpeggios also from on-board. Rhythm provided by a Roland TR-8.

The rarer red panel version of the Andromeda A6 is featured.
