Fairlight

Fairlight Rising

Fairlight are releasing a new version of the worlds first sampler and workstation, once again built right here in AU. The device shaped the sound of 80s pop. To celebrate I dragged out my old Fairlight Voicetracker from 1983, a device I worked on as a consultant with Fairlight when they were in Rushcutters Bay, Sydney. Another world first the Voicetracker is a pitch to midi and controlled-voltage converter allowing my synths to track what I played on the trumpet. Might have to give it a special spot in the rack at ToKwerX new room at Coloursound Studios in 2013. Ahh, the 8 bit memories...
