Big Maq


I got a MAQ 16/3 sequencer - these are now officially VINTAGE (i.e. they are hard to find/expensive/old technology/not supported/bad manual'ed/smell nice)

Here I am trying to get my head round it, using the Roland 100M as a sound source, a Korg SDD2000 delay and THREE incredible reverbs (2 x M5000 and the QRS)

Korging


Messing about on the Korg DS8. What a great synth! They tried to simplify the FM synthesis idea introduced a few years before this synth came out made famous by Yamaha. Actually Korg licensed the technology from them and kind of said "nice try, but this is what people really want - a synth you can actually program without reading the manual". In this vid, its going through the Korg A1 FX unit (with remote)

Reverbz Two


Here is another vintage reverb comparison. I did one a few years ago here in my previous studio, and thought it was time to do a new one with some more units I have acquired since then (namely a Quantec Room Simulator, a TC Electronic M5000 and a Korg A1, to add to the Lexicon 224, Roland R880, Yamaha Rev1 and Eventide H3000 I had before). Enjoy!

QRS Two


Another Quantec QRS thing. This time using the Kawai K5 additive synthesiser being played by the Roland MSQ-700 sequencer

QRS One


I got a Quantec Room Simulator. Its beautiful, possibly the best digital reverb made in the 1980s? This piece was made using it, and the Sequential T8 and a Roland MSQ-700 MIDI sequencer, because its better than the one in the T8

Love Of Lexicon


I got some new bits and pieces recently, and here are a few of them that I am exploring: Roland Jupiter 4, Dynacord TAM21 Stereo Flanger and the awesome Lexicon Prime Time ll - can't believe it's taken me so long to own one of these beasts. I'm in love...
