  1. Perhaps a true story about the crash on the stock market back in 1989, but the Japanese samplers rampaging the market had a lot to do with Fairlight’s demise as well. Particularly the arrival of the Akai S1000 in 1988 must have been the final nail in Fairlight’s coffin. One could do pretty much the same things with just a Korg M1, Akai S1000 and Atari ST and one would still have enough money left to go on an extensive overseas trip.

    Love this interview though. So many new things I didn’t know about Fairlight.
