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.

Having experienced my first super-duper mega synth bundle at the back end of last year with UVI’s Vintage Vault, I find myself with the pleasure of trying out another one, this time in the shape of Arturia’s V Collection 4. 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 […]

Last night (for those of us in Europe), many thousands of synth fans stayed up late to watch the highly anticipated launch of the new ARP Odyssey from Korg. Broadcast live on YouTube, we waited until kick off time (11pm GMT) and were promptly delayed by 30 minutes, but we didn’t seem to mind too […]

The fog of time has clouded the exact details somewhat, but I got roped in to broker the deal and acquisition of a Yamaha CP70 and […]

There seems to be a growing trend amongst software instrument developers in recent years of bundling their goods up into an “ultimate” package and offering that package at a considerable discount to their customers over the combined prices of the individual, component items. This has a number of effects. Firstly, the user community tend to […]

I am not in the slightest bit ashamed to admit that I love the Yamaha DX7 (and it’s various DX relatives). I actually adore the synonymous electric piano patch, along with those emphatic basses and all the other things it could do. I no longer own my DX27, but miss it terribly. But I made […]
