I’m lazy. I distinctly remember Mr Bacon, my primary school headmaster, telling me as much one summer’s day circa 1981. He was a proper, old-school (excuse the pun) headmaster. Tweed jacket, cane, loud and opinionated. And as he remonstrated with me, aged 11, about the shocking state of my school desk, I felt hurt by […]

In the following two videos. Oliver can be seen […]

I think if you were to ask most synth fans which analog polysynth they’d happily donate a kidney for, the most common answer would be a Roland Jupiter 8. It’s one of those classic synths that not only sounds the part, but looks it too. Big in sound AND in physical size, it commands hefty […]

Here’s me, having a stream of consciousness last night about Kraftwerk’s announcement that they will be touring the UK next year. It’s not long before my mind wanders elsewhere, and this was all done on Facebook Live. More of this stuff soon…

It’s funny how, after so many years of not really getting into big virtual instrument collections, I am sat here now, reviewing my second iteration of Arturia’s V Collection in less than a year! Ok, so I may have been late to the V Collection 4 game, but I’m back up to speed again and […]
