30 years ago Peter Vogel and company started what has become the computer-based music production industry with the Fairlight CMI. Today celebrating that anniversary Peter is bringing back the Fairlight CMI-30A.

 

 

Fairlight Original vs New

 

 

Peter Vogel demos the Fairlight CMI-30A @ NAMM 2011

 

 

Interview with Peter Vogel re Fairlight CMI-30A @ NAMM 2011

 

 

Bob Moog demos the Fairlight CMI 1983

 

The Fairlight dominated the hit songs of the 1980's through 1990's and cost about the same as the average house. It's amazing to think that the same money as the Fairlight cost in 1982 converted to 2011 dollars would buy you FL Studio + ultra-fast PC (1000's of times more powerful) AND enough money left over to build a real recording studio to put it all in :)

 

Hats off to Peter & Fairlight for bringing the CMI back.

 

...and finally, the Fairlight iPad app!

 

 

Cool! Must HAVE!

In this tutorial the Guru shows you how to make lush pads from just about any monophonic melody using Edison and Newtone (or just Edison if you don't have Newtone) ...

 

 

Download the project created above here

 

The steps are:

 

1. Load a monophonic melody (vocal/instrumental whatever you have, tonal/timbre variation is good) into Newtone. If you don't have Newtone you can get it here. You can also skip this step and use Edison edit out a string of notes of the same pitch.

 

2. Use Newtone to flatten the pitch to a single note (close to the average of the melody).

 

3. Load the flattened melody into Edison and remove any gaps between notes and other non-melodic noises. 'S,T,C,CH & F' sounds can become unwanted noise 'hiss' after blurring.

 

4. Add at least 4 seconds silence before and after the flattened melody.

 

5. NOTE: If your sample is mono, convert it to stereo before blurring it.

 

6. Apply the Blur tool function with ~4000 ms 'Amount' setting

 

7. Load the Blurred sample into your favourite sampler. Don't forget to set the root-note to the correct pitch of the sound.

 

Enjoy!
