Frank Turner – Studio Set-up Part 2 - The Control Room

The Pulse powered by Sennheiser is een mooie collectie video's waarin artiesten en producers een kijkje achter de schermen bieden. In dit voorbeeld zien we de studio van singer/songwriter Frank Turner.

Frank Turner kindly gives Sennheiser a gear run down of what he uses in his control room to mix and produce for demos as well as work on mixes and production for other artists. From outboard, software and monitoring which is provided by Sennheiser's HD800s headphones and Neumann KH310 monitors.

Hainbach op zoek naar obscure Italiaanse synthesizers

The Marche Region in Italy was home to a thriving industry of music instrument production from the 1950s to the mid-90s. Tens of thousands of people made organs, accordions and small runs of synthesizers that were like nothing else in the world. Much production closed in the 90s, leaving only a few companies around, and many people lost their jobs. The history of Marche synths was not talked about, too bitter were the memories. The Museo Del Synth Marchigiano aims to change that - a motley crew of synth lovers work together to get the story about this special time in music instrument history out.

I was invited to play a show at Acusmatic Festival in Ancona and visit the collection before. I was overwhelmed by the amazing sounds these machines made, so I captured them on tape and for use in my performance. I also just had to film every synth I could get my hand for you to enjoy. You will find instruments by Siel, Elka, Elgan, Farfisa, Crumar, CRB and more here.

Oberheim EVS (Eight Voice)

Veel aandacht de laatste tijd voor de ultrazeldzame Oberheim Eight Voice.
Brainworx maakte de bx_oberhausen plug-in, GForce ontwikkelde de OB-E en Cherry Audio heeft de bet
aalbare Eight Voice plug-in (test in Interface 246). Het origineel is echter onovertroffen. Luister maar!

The Ultra rare original Oberheim EVS (Eight Voice) from 1977 is used for all sounds (except white noise) in this track called The White Whale. Combine 8 SEM modules with a programmer unit and you have the Dream synth of all synths!
Composed and produced by
The track can be found on the Firechild album The White Whale (2020)
