INSIDE SYNTH - This time, Kawai SX240!

Since it has been quite a while since my last post showing you some photos of the insides of a synth, I thought it was a good time to post another one, this time about an amazing analog polysynth, the Kawai SX240!

CONCERT - No concert today... But will be back next tuesday as planned!

First of all, sorry I haven't posted yet a post regarding my previous performance, but I had lots to do these past days...

I'm still very busy and due to that, I won't be availalbe later today to give my thursday performance...

I hope things get a bit more "peaceful" in the next days as I really want to post about my last performance and try to go back to more technical post regarding some Clavia Nord Modular tricks ( including the second part of "Your Clavia Nord Modular G1 as a Drum Machine?").

So please stay tuned as I still have quite some more interesting posts to share ;)

Wanna sound like a whale? You should try WhaleSynth then?

Yep, there is a new websynth that lets you sound like a whale!

Using the Clavia Nord Modular G2 as a mixer! - Part.2

I know it has been a while since I wrote Part.1, but I didn't forget Part.2 was still pending...

Now you can read why the Clavia Nord Modular G2 can be an even more amazing mixer than what I told you in Part.1!

And this is all thanks to a "special" module that I neglected to tell you about before!

Hammond Novachord, a truly vintage beast!

No, unfortunately I don't own one of those, but I just got aware of a very interesting demo available on youtube that I think is worth sharing!

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN - Yamaha D1500, an amazing digital delay!

Since I am currently giving up on quite some gear to re-organize my small personal studio, I thought it would be interesting to start reviewing some equipment I ended up giving up on in this special "GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN" series!

NEWS - And the Ondes Martenot is back with Ondomo by ASADEN!

If you are quite passionated about old keyboards, you probably have heard about the Ondes Martenot!
If not, you are definitely missing on an amazingly expressive instrument!

It seems someone was brave enough to open a Behringer DeepMind 12!

I don't own one or have tried one just yet, but it definitely seems an interesting machine for those of us who really love analog synths and don't want / can't spend too much on a synth!

NEWS - New demo from The River, by Baloran!

And there is one more demo available of the new synth Baloran is planning, The River, on youtube!

If you missed that first post in which I talked about this synth, be sure to have a look! -

A tip from a friend... A site full of Synth ROMs!

Some times, when a ROM on your synths go bad, you'll need to replace it with a new one, or just get a new one for a more updated version of the OS!

If you are in need for some synth ROMs, this is your lucky day as a friend of mine just gave me this link!

Another performance with long long delays!

As you probably noticed, I didn't put a post this saturday as I was travelling...
To compensate you, while you wait for I'm sharing yet another performance making use of my Electrix Repeater as a very long delay!

Some departures in the groovebox department... - Korg Electribe 2 / Roland MC-09 - Part.2

If you checked my previous post in this series, I got rid of my Korg Electribe 2 and Roland MC-09 last weekend...

While I don’t really regret getting rid of them, as they were not the machines I needed in my setup, I still feel they are pretty good machines!

In the previous post, I shared my opinion on the Korg Electribe 2.
On this one I’ll share my thoughts on the Roland MC-09!

Two of my favourite machines in a single performance!

Unfortunately, today I didn't have too much time to prepare a good post for you guys, so I decided to present you this performance I did some time ago using two of my favourite machines, the amazing Yamaha CS-15, an analog mono-synth from the same family of the legendary Yamaha CS-80, and the Electrix Repeater, a very powerful 4 track looper!

Some departures in the groovebox department... - Korg Electribe 2 / Roland MC-09 - Part.1

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you probably remember my past post about why I'm not so keen on recent groove boxes -

Akai Heardrush E2, an interesting tape echo emulator in pedal form!

Most of you have probably heard and loved the way tape echoes sound.
The echoing sound produced by those old units is definitely full of character and just sounds good!
So good in fact that several companies tried to emulate them with digital technology!
