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 […]

Some years ago, a rather enthusiastic, and somewhat giddy, Steve Howell (Hollow Sun) popped up in my Messenger application and proceeded to get all excited about his latest project. 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 […]

VINTAGE_VAULT1_SPLASH

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 […]

PW GX-1  copy

Whilst I stand guard over the CMI Series III that I’m restoring with Peter, he is having an absolute blast over in the States! I get regular emails containing some amazing pictures, including these beauties from his friend in New York. Yup, that’s a Yamaha GX-1 he’s stood beside. In fact, Peter helped source this […]

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. […]

Here’s a very quick demo I did of the UVI CS-M, available as part of their new Vintage Legends collection, just before I went to bed and just before Santa arrived! 😉 I couldn’t resist recreating one of my favourite pieces with this classic synth line… Full video reviews will follow in the coming days.

The old saying goes, “There you are, waiting for a bus, nothing for ages then two come along at once”. Well, it should be brought up to date… “There you are, waiting for some new content from UVI, nothing for ages, then SIX come along at once! Oh, and an update to their UVI Workstation […]

Those crazy French sample library creators, UVI, have been letting slip a few teaser images over on their Facebook page. Judging by the wording, more is to come but this is what we have so far… First up, a Rhodes Chroma clone… Then we have something clearly inspired by Yamaha’s CS-M (20/40/70) range of analogue […]

PX7-Desktop-Wallpaper-1680x1050

Out of the blue this week, the mighty Propellerhead Software unleashed its latest Rack Extension, the PX7. Clearly an homage to Yamaha’s ubiquitous FM classic, the DX7, this software recreation is pretty damned faithful, both in looks and performance. So much so that Propellerhead have made it compatible with existing DX7 patches which can be […]
