Now we've binge-watched the entire of Stranger Things season 1, hunted down every related sci-fi and horror movie, and got to got to know the cast, we're left in a bit of a cultural limbo. Season 2 isn't set for release until sometime in 2017, which is a long time to wait without our fix of nostalgic goodness. Luckily, web developer Robert Vinluan has created the ultimate methadone for the Stranger Things junkie.

His creation, the Ramsophone, is an online music-maker that lets you click and tap to create your own synthwave score. He says that “resemblances to the Stranger Things theme may or may not be intentional,” but we know those unmistakeable spooky sounds when we hear them. This is, without doubt, a DIY Stranger Things-style synth machine.

As Wired points out, the Ramsophone may sound like the 1980s, but it looks like something firmly rooted in the ’50s and ’60s, when Dieter Rams (after whom the Ramsophome is named) was designing for Braun. The minimal interface features a few white knobs and push buttons to compose your beats, and a tiny red button to turn the music on and off. And if you get bored of those sounds, just refresh the page to mix up the music-maker’s form factor. Try it out here.
