HBO's dragons-and-death drama has a simple and memorable melody — one that's surprisingly good to use for showing off the potential (and potential learning curves) of Roli's crazy synthesizer "piano."

New Zealand singer-songwriter, Lorde, is an artist that you're likely to have heard of, having, at the age of just 16, already enjoyed chart-topping success in the UK, US and Australia with her single, 'Royals'. She's also got two Grammy Awards under her belt for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year. Not bad at all!

Emeli Sandé... do we really need to introduce the multiple award-winning, hit record-writing singer, who has performed everywhere from the Royal Albert Hall to the 2012 Olympics?
In this interview, Emeli explains how her Focusrite Forte is her go-to interface for recording on the road, due to its amazing sound-quality and ease of use.
However, it's not just for recording where Emeli relies on Focusrite Novation products. The Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 and Scarlett 18i20 interfaces are key to her live rig, and there's also a Novation Zero SL MkII MIDI controller used to control the laptops.

Multi-Grammy Award winning mix engineer, Chris Lord-Alge recently caught up with Focusrite to explain why he chose to use RedNet converters in his pro-studio.
Even if you have no need (or budget) for such a professional set-up, the video is worth checking out simply to ogle at the amount of sweet, sweet gear in his studio!
