I have ponied up for Korg’s new MS-20 Kit. The vendor in California tells me he has the much-publicized limited edition vintage analog semi-modular synth reissue-as-a-kit in stock, so I expect it to find its way into my grimy clutches within the week.
Upon receipt of the kit, I shall immediately join forces with the “Love”-ly and talented DJ Güber for an evening of kit assembly and frivolity. Watch this space for one of the first ever customer MS-20 Kit unboxing / assembly / test / MS-mayhem videos.
See you then! I can’t wait!
It’s about fucking time.
(I’ve been vocal about the lack of a dark-themed SoundCloud HTML5 player, or at least a little more ability to customize, for some time now. With this player, your sound’s graphic becomes the player’s background – it could be a solid colour, or it could be an image, as shown here. The image’s geometry seems to be scaled to the player’s largest dimension, while cropping from the right or bottom as necessary to maintain the image’s original aspect ratio. Embedding this player requires iframe code at the moment, but I
suspect hope it will find its way into the next version of WordPress.)
Don’t read this if you want to wait for Roland’s big announcement next week. I’m pretty sure this will ruin the surprise.
A few weeks ago I became aware of Roland’s forthcoming “Aira” series when I got linked to their first teaser video about their drum machine, the TR-08 (or is it the TR-8?). Every few days they have been releasing new teasers, and finally sometime within the past 24 hours they added another couple of videos, and interestingly, two images of the Aira series, darkened to the point where all you can really see is black silhouettes of the sleek new boxes, and all the pretty light-up buttons.
Well … it occurred to me that if I make some adjustments to those images, it could be possible to reveal some details. This is exactly what I did, and the results are very telling, indeed! These two images were orginally posted on Roland’s site, and I have enhanced them to reveal sufficient detail to discern almost everything on their front panels!

I’m sorry moving turned out to be a bigger endeavour than I thought, so updates to the site have been slow.
Recently I had the pleasure of working with the Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 12 alongside one of my “go-to” keyboards (the Roland Juno-106) in a composition session. The music wasn’t techno this time around, more like experimental electro-funk-folk. I ended up really liking the new Prophet. It has a very sweet, analog sound. Its strengths are pads and basses. To me it sounds rather different the Prophet-5, which didn’t really bother me. I never spent much time with the Prophet 08, but I recall DSI claiming it could do everything the Prophet-5 could do. While I can’t speak to how accurate that claim is, I can say at the very least that it isn’t the case with the Prophet 12.
One of the first things I noticed during our session Continue reading
