In studio with Take

Video of Los Angeles producer Take as he guides Daddy Kev through his studio in Hollywood.

Don’t forget that Take’s new album Only Mountain will be out next week, here’s a free track from it.

Herbie Hancock playing on a Fairlight CMI

It’s a pleasure to watch musical legends Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones, as they play starry-eyed on a Fairlight CMI synthesizer. The CMI (Computer Musical Instrument) was introduced in 1979, being the first polyphonic digital sampling synthesizer.

I don’t know about the original source of this video, but according to Wikipedia Herbie Hancock and Stevie Wonder were among the first customers buying the system – so it was likely recorded in the early eighties.
