There is something undeniably powerful about the sound of a traditional classical orchestra. It is also a sound that is universally loved and accepted. Even if you’re a staunch punk rocker, an acid house raver or jazz funk progressive, you will have been, and will continue to be, moved by music played by an orchestra. […]

Stating the obvious, part one: Rob Papen is a bit of a legend in the world of software synthesis. Stating the obvious, part two: Vector synthesis is a tried and trusted technique that delivers organic, evolving sounds. Pop these two things together and you have the basis for Vecto, a “four-oscillator vector synthesizer that allows […]

It’s funny how things happen, isn’t it? One Sunday afternoon, I was sat in my studio, dicking about as per usual when I get an email from my good friend, Dave Spiers, he of GForce Software fame. He told me that one of his developers, Jon Hodgson, had had to pull out of being a […]

It’s been somewhat of a good year for old synths. The act of taking an old, much loved and now highly expensive old analog synth and recreating it, either in software or in hardware is nothing new. For over 20 years, people have been demanding faithful recreations of long lost pieces of vintage hardware, either […]

When I see the enormity, proliferation and acceptance of ‘mega’, ‘all-in-one’ software instruments, I see it is a clear indication of how far software synthesizers have come. And I have personally come a long way too, when it comes to software synthesis. My opinion of it has completely changed since the day I won the […]

As the name suggests, this is their fourth iteration of this all inclusive bundle, featuring […]

With lots of new stuff hurtling out of the press booths at NAMM 2015 today, one has made every electronic musician collectively climax in a sloppy, sticky mess. Dave Smith has announced the Sequential Prophet 6. As if to totally compensate for Korg’s miserable launch last night, Dave (if I may call you by your […]
