After my slightly scathing review of Roland’s JP-08 Boutique module, I thought I might never hear from my acquaintance at Roland HQ ever again, but thankfully, he got in touch to tell me about a demonstration he gave recently of the latest Boutique module, the SE-02. 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Some while ago, I fulfilled a personal ambition of mine to release a single to an unsuspecting public.

I still harbour an ambition to release something on a physical format, preferably vinyl, but I’m […]

So, here’s a quick post for you before I head off to California on business for a week (yeah, I know… get me, eh?). Last night, I attended a performance by the BBC Concert Orchestra as part of a year long season at the Southbank Centre, entotled “The Rest is Noise”, exploring the music of […]

Well, it’s all gone a bit quiet on the Fairlight restoration front, so I just wanted to give you a brief update, for those that are curious.

In the first days of 1984, I started at, what was to be, my third and final high school in as many years. Circumstance had led me to make and remake friends more often than most kids, at what is normally a difficult time to do such a thing. And, because of this, I often […]

At least once a year, I apologise for a lack of activity and here’s the first such apology for 2013! Last year I took on a new day job and things have ramped up of late, the upshot of which has seen me flying here, there and everywhere. America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. […]
