midi and analogue synths

Exciting times at the studio as the midi to cv implementation is taking shape. At the moment there's a set up for the EMS (putney) and MS 20 (korg). Now you can sit and compose on your pc music for these synths just as you would for your soft synths, but the studio machines sound brutal.

below is an little example of a demo setup. the putney has a relative range of 3 three octaves, depending on where you start, the MS 20 is another case to study.

Never a dull moment

These are the contestants for our bi-annual "ARP 2500 fast patching competition". receiving their first lecture and demo on analoge synthesis by Dr Simonis and Herr B.
Well not really, but a growing number of schools send their students over to visit our studios, where they do get a short introduction into music in general, old machines and weird sounds in particular. Nothing wrong with that.

Anyone a Mellotron to spare perhaps...

meanwhile at the studio


Aki and Alan were here 10 & 11 may and in two days recorded possibly their new album. more news about that follows.

Coming monday we plan to install the kenton midi to cv converter, a new and exciting feature for the studio with wich the studio as a whole but also its seperate components are easily accesible thru midi and thus integrated into YOUR setup. more news about that next week.

Andrew Tuttle recorded his new album, The Disambiguation of Anonymeye, here in our studio last year. its in the post so we'll put up some tracks here when it arrives.
