I Dream Of Wires: Hardcore Edition

This is epic. A four hour documentary covering the history of the modular synthesiser. Our copy arrived two days ago, and we are rationing it out slowly to make it last as long as possible.

It’s clearly a massive labour of love by the creators, it looks great, it sounds great and it’s thrillingly educational.

If you’re interested in modular synthesisers, get the Blu-Ray or DVD, it’s like bathing in ambrosia!

If you’re not interested in modular synthesisers, you may not like it.

Modified TR-707 Drum Machine

This is a great machine, from 1984 and we’re using it on a new track today…

The modifications are simple but very useable, essentially adding pitch control – tame or extreme – to each drum sound.

Click on the pictures to hear us testing it. You could also download the test if you are inclined.

Arp 2600

Arp Power

This is our Arp 2600 synthesiser.

We used this synth for the bassline and arpeggio in our new song ‘Do You Feel What I Feel’. There are no other synths in the track in fact. Here is a drawing of the Arp.
