Éclat Part 109
I recently went to a Museum of Musical Instruments, and discovered a synth there that I hadn't heard of or seen before - the EMS Synthi. What I really loved about it was the clear labelling on the large knobs which helped me understand how it worked - plus a cute pin matrix that would allow you to modulate the sound. It's been used by some of the pioneers of electronic music, including Brian Eno, Jean-Michel Jarre, and Devo.
So today I went online and found a demo of this synth, so that we could play with the sounds ourselves!
Watch the demo of the EMS Synthi above, and download the samples from WeTransfer here.
You can use them, mash them, and morph them, plus you can add any other samples, synths or sounds that you like to make a track of ± 2 mins long.
Upload your track here by 20:30 CEST, and then rejoin the Zoom call at 21:00 for the listening session to check out what everyone's made!
Want to try a software version of the Synthi? We've got 4 registrations for the Arturia Analog Lab V Software featuring an emulation of the famous synth to give away today. Finish and upload a track by the 1st of August to be in with a chance to win a registered version of the Analog Lab V Software.
