I just got the great news that I’m being commissioned to work on one of the world’s rarest synths, the EMS Synthi 100. I don’t know the exact details of the project yet, but as far as I understand there will be patch-making, sample-taking, and composition in the works. Super, super excited, had my first training day the other day on it and this thing ROCKS. There were only 26 of these ever built, with only about 6 left in existence by most count. I’ll be working on the one at Melbourne Uni, which has been restored and modified to accept external midi, so I’m hoping that I can integrate the OP1 to drive the unit
Here’s a pic from the other day:
I’ve been working on a bunch of long-form synth pieces for a while now, and it was a piece called Miller’s Planet that I submitted last year for a scholarship prize (came second, always the bridesmaid…) that brought me to their attention and landed me this project. Here’s a link to Miller’s Planet, if you feel like really synthing out for 7 minutes.
really looking forward to this project, will definitely update this thread with pics/soundbytes, and hopefully I will make an OP1 pack or 2 of samples from this 23 (!) oscillator beast
