Korg my favorite (of many favorites) electronic music company is trying to ruin my life — again!
Obviously Korg is in business just to turn out divorce-ware aimed at wrecking my life. Is not enough for them that I have a great many of their products. Including an SQ-64 Sequencer, an M1r, the original Wavestation AD, a MONOPOLY that was lost to a hurricane —25 years on I’m still morning it; and last but not least, the first synth I’ve ever bought an EX800.

This long time Apple user has written off Logic Pro X.
If you are reading this you probably know that Logic Pro has been Apple’s flagship DAW since they acquired eMagic in the early aughts and then kept the software and quickly killed the hardware. I’m still using my 2 long suffering end-of-life Unitors 8 but that is a story for a different day.

And in the very unlikely event that you have come across such a listing, one would be expected to pay 9 million dollars and your first male heir. However now a small company from Japan has decided that is a good idea to have another go at it.

As I write this, I can’t help but feel that NAMM this year found a hot tub time machine. First it was the mighty trio from Moog. And now even more blasts from the past. This one is a Prophet! Continue reading Prophet 6. Yes please!
I love analog synthesisers. I’ve always have. In fact one of the main reasons Vox Robot started was as a good excuse to build, tinker, and play with a few of the little beasties. As luck would have it analog synthesizers are having a bit of a renaissance. Is ridiculous to think that we have at least an order of magnitude more choice in absolutely every facet of building a big modular than the hip kids of the 60 and 70’s.

One great regret – of the many – is the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 that I never bought in 1986 as it sat collecting dust at Music Magic. I let it get away.
Yes, the Prophet 5 is indeed a legend. The list of its users is a who’s who of musical heavy hitters. Continue reading The one that got away. Sequential Circuits Prophet 5
After much thinking and deliberation, I decided to do for myself what I have in the past suggested other people do – start a video blog. I’ll focus on my personal area of interests, they are quite disjointed.
In no particular order: Continue reading A brand new day.
