  • Waldorf Blofeld Limited Edition Black Synths!

    Posted on February 10, 2011 by Joe Stachowiak

    Woah, check out these bad boys! Following the release of the evil 'Dark Star' Virus synthesiser from Access, Waldorf have released their own shadowy synth, with deep black Blofeld keyboard and module units now available for purchase! In fact, Waldorf claim that this mysterious colour actually helps the Blofeld to produce it's best sounds - although I'm pretty sure that this isn't meant to be taken literally :P

    So, apart from the colour, the deep black Blofeld is exactly the same as it's silver counterpart, but it gives you the chance to get your hands on a limited edition piece of kit! So, if you want one, hurry up and grab yours before someone else does!

  • AKAI SYNTHSTATION 25 REVIEW

    Posted on February 9, 2011 by Joe Stachowiak

    Akai SynthStation 25The Akai SynthStation 25 transforms your iPhone or iPod Touch into a portable music production studio for mobile music creation. OK, I admit it, I stole that line directly from the Akai Pro website, but I couldn't think of a better way to explain it! What the SynthStation basically allows you to do is to dock your iPhone/iPod Touch on the front of the Akai SynthStation controller, and then use the controller to trigger the SynthStation application. Essentially, the Akai SynthStation gives you hands on control over the most commonly used features of the application, leaving the touchscreen free for you to affect some of the more experimental parameters within the synth application.

  • ACCESS VIRUS TI2 POLAR WHITEOUT REVIEW

    Posted on February 3, 2011 by Joe Stachowiak

    I'm sure that when Access released their first Virus synthesiser back in 1997, they must have known that they were onto something special. Since that day, the Virus synth series has greatly expanded, and with it has come a mass of loyal followers, who swear by the quality of sounds that it produces. Traditionally, the Virus has been embraced by Trance and Techno artists, with users including Sasha, Snap! and Paul Oakenfold, but it's ability to produce dark, twisted, phat sounds has also made it popular with producers of other types of dance music such as drum and bass, with producers such as Alix Perez and Krakota and Judda manipulating it for deep, 'in your face' basslines.

    DAVE SMITH TETRA - INTRODUCTION
