Who is fixing your CMI?
why do you ask?
Used to work for Fairlight UK before downfall but not on Tech side. Always curious as to who still maintains. Peter Wielk at Horizontal used to be the key person but back in Australia. Rob at Failed Muso is currently restoring a Series III under Peter's guidance if anyone interested. http://www.failedmuso.com/blog/?page_id=3723
oh cool - what was it like back in the day to work with them? must have been fun! i am getting synth prof to help renovate it, but was thinking of getting the drive replaced a la mustudio. thanks!
Ironically, I happened across a Series III in the late 80’s which was thought to belong to Dave Bascombe as it was loaded with TfF Seeds of Love samples. I thought it could be the same one Rob is restoring but his belonged to Ian Stanley. We know there were three similar kicking about. What History. Being connected with any of the “big guns” of the eighties will always be a privilege. I secretly wanted to work for NED but they had a very snobby commercial attitude. Where can you go after speaking daily to Mike Oldfield, Boris Blank or Real World Studios? Long live the CMI! I will take this opportunity to say how much I admire your solo work and that with John F & Maths.
I forgot to say - if you like old brochures etc, I have started uploading some to my website as so many people kept asking for them. www.electronicinstrumentarchive.weebly.com
How's the CMI coming? I've got a IIx as well. You can see it at www.synthroom.com
