Fairlight and creator Peter Vogel have announced the arrival of the first Fairlight CMI-30A, a $17,000 synth that updates the classic Fairlight CMI – an 80’s digital monster synth:
Our new baby has already left the nest and is currently winging its way to the US in readiness for a first performance at NAMM. Its parents are recovering well and are looking forward to receiving visitors in the near future.
Here are a couple of early pics, but more baby photos and recordings of first words will be posted in time. We thank our friends and loved ones for their support during the gestation period.
Happy New Year and Happy Fairlight!
For more info on the new synth, see our post on the Fairlight CMI-30A announcement or the Fairlight site. Also, don’t miss Herbie Hancock demonstrating the vintage Fairlight in the 80’s on Sesame Street.
