Digital Synths & Samplers

In the early days of digital synthesis, simple binary code was used to create waveforms of sound. These waveforms were then used to create basic synth sounds, which were often static and lacking in nuance. However, as digital technology progressed, manufacturers began to develop ways to create more complex waveforms.

The Fairlight CMI (Computer Musical Instrument) was a massive and expensive machine, used by artists such as Kate Bush, Jean Michel Jarre, and Peter Gabriel. Nevertheless, it paved the way for a new generation of smaller and more affordable digital synths. In the 1980s, companies such as Yamaha and Roland began releasing affordable digital samplers – devices that could record and playback audio samples. These quickly became essential tools for producers in a variety of genres, from hip-hop to house music.

This led to the development of digital samplers, which could record and playback recorded audio samples. These samples could then be modified using a variety of effects, making them more versatile and realistic.

Today, digital synths and samplers are capable of creating a vast range of sounds, from classic analog tones to complex futuristic textures. Thanks to their advanced sound-generating capabilities, they have become an essential part of the modern music producer’s toolkit.

Keyboards & Organs

These retro keyboard and organ sounds have been used by some of the most prolific artists across a wide range of genres. The classic transistor organ sound has been used by everyone from The Doors to Queens of the Stone Age, while the warm, smooth sound of the analog string machine has been employed by the likes of Stevie Wonder and Air.

These sounds are still as evocative today as they were when they were first created, and thanks to virtual instruments, they can now be experienced by anyone with a computer. By recreating these classic sounds in a digital format, virtual instruments offer a unique way to experience the history of popular music.

Overhauled Instruments

Arturia’s V Collection 9 is a must-have for any synth enthusiast. Not only does it include four newly rebuilt instruments – the CS-80 V, Prophet-5 V, Prophet-VS V and Piano V – but it also brings them bang up to date.

The interface is immediately familiar to anyone who has used an Ensoniq synth before, and the sounds are just as lush and vibrant as they were on the original hardware.

The SQ-80 is a classic synth that helped define the sound of the 80s. It’s known for its warm, mellow sound, and its ability to create rich, complex textures. The SQ-80 is also unique in its design. Rather than using traditional analog oscillators, the SQ-80 uses digital waveforms.

These waveforms are then fed into an analog filter, which gives the SQ-80 its distinctive sound. In recent years, the SQ-80 has seen a resurgence in popularity, due in part to its unique sound. Thanks to modern technology, it’s now possible to capture the SQ-80’s sound in a virtual instrument.

Optional USB Power Adaptor

The USB port on the KeyStep is not just for charging the device or updating the firmware. In addition, it allows for standard, class-compliant, bus-powered operation. This means that you can connect the KeyStep to a computer or other devices and use it as a MIDI controller without having to worry about compatibility issues.

Furthermore, you can use the KeyStep in a standalone situation by connecting an optional USB power adaptor. This is ideal for situations where you need to control multiple devices or if you want to use the KeyStep in a live performance setting. Overall, the USB port on the KeyStep is a versatile feature that gives you a lot of flexibility in how you use the device.

Performance Control

The Rec, Play, and Stop buttons are performance control buttons used to control the sequencer and arpeggiator. The octave controls adjust the keyboard and arpeggiator pitch in octaves. The Rec button starts recording, the Play button starts playback, and the Stop button stops recording or playback.

The octave up and down buttons raise or lower the pitch of the keyboard or arpeggiator in octaves. The octave range is +/- 2 octaves from the root note. The root note is the note that is played when the key is pressed without any other keys held down. When a key is pressed with one or more other keys held down, the pitch of the sound will be determined by the interval between the notes.

For example, if a C major chord is played with the root note being C, then the pitches of the other notes in the chord will be determined by their intervals from C. If an F# minor chord is played with the root note being F#, then the pitches of the other notes in the chord will be determined by their intervals from F#. The range of each octave control is +/- 2 semitones from the center position. In the center position, no pitch change occurs.
