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

Interview with Peter Vogel re Fairlight CMI-30A @ NAMM 2011
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.
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.
Papam Studios created a shiny new animated Image-Line logo for use in our videos and it needed audio so we started a competition. There were over 200 entries that we reduced to three winners. Download the winning FL Studio projects and any other of the 200+ entries by following the links at the bottom of our News Post.
Image-Line just turned 20! To celebrate LollieVox (Laurie Webb) we will be creating a 'crowd sourced' vocal pack, and we're giving everyone who enters the competition, a free copy by download! 20-05-2014
