Well, it has been a while since I did anything over here and it ALWAYS pains me to admit that. If I’ve learned anything, it’s that no matter how hard you try, if your passion and pastimes can’t pay the bills, they will always take second place to the things that do. In the six […]

It’s fair to say that I like samples. From a very early age, I’ve appreciated how flexible and empowering this form of sound generation has been. In the early days, sampling was limited by the restraints of technology. All the necessary hardware components were either in their infancy,  incredibly expensive or both. RAM was at […]

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 […]

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 […]
