This set of videos, from 1985, takes a look at The Secrets of Analog & Digital Synthesis.
It’s obviously dated, starting with the ”Listen to the sound coming from your VCR right now.” Nevertheless, there’s some solid coverage of synth basics and the videos also offer a vintage look at synths.
Combining an authentic Stratocaster guitar and a special Roland divided pickup with a 13-pin output; the GK-Ready Stratocaster GC-1 can be used with both standard guitar equipment and Roland V-Guitar category products like the GR-55 and VG-99.
To harness this power, Roland developed the GK Divided Pickup, a special pickup that allows each of a guitar?s strings to be processed independently. Connecting a GK-Ready guitar to the GR Guitar Synthesizer or V-Guitar System opens up a world of options, including instant alternate tunings, transforming the guitar sound into another instrument entirely, and more.
At the 2012 NAMM Show, Roland and Fender announced the VG Stratocaster G-5, an electronic guitar that fuses traditional design with digital music technology.
Combining Roland?s COSM modelling with Fender?s classic Stratocaster guitar design, the VG Stratocaster G-5 gives players instant alternate tunings, a wide selection of electric, acoustic and 12-string guitar models and more.
The 20 sounds onboard the VG Stratocaster G-5 include Fender Stratocaster, Telecaster, humbucking, 12-string, acoustic models, and ‘cutting-edge’ sounds plus five alternate tunings.
Free Live Rack: Here’s another free Live Rack from AfroDJMac, Fender Feedback Rack. It’s the 15th in his series of free Live Racks.
Here’s what AfroDJMac has to say about Fender Feedback Rack:
Being a guitarist, I always loved the sound of the electric guitar growling over into harmonically rich feedback. So I set up my Fender Mustang and Fender Jag-Stang, ran them through my trusty sea-foam green Fender Deluxe, cranked up the gain and began sampling.
If you were there, listening to all that noise I was making, you”d be surprised at how the final product turned out. More like a vintage electric piano, rich and warm in flavor, I might even call this instrument “mellow.” Even though, in all honesty, I was hoping for something as ruthless as the source material, this instrument has warmth and character oh so pleasing to my ear.
