New site, new domain and lots of cross-checking to make sure everything is correct and updated. Meanwhile a huge sale is hiding underneath all of it so make sure to grab those bargains! New Facebook page here to hangout & get extra goodies! Way Beyond Fairlight Kontakt is not to be missed: Our new Kontakt release – for Native Instruments Kontakt 5 (full version) – heavily updated from the previous release Fairlight Kontakt R3 and now including Dreampads and hundreds of completely new sounds. We hope you will love this new update. Read more about it here.

We found love in a hopeless way; by a lucky strike of the right timing and the right spontanity it simply wasn’t possible to say no when a guy was offering an Akai S1000 KB for free: the machine was broken; the floppy doesn’t work. So I decided to reply with a definite yes – and grabbed it. Just like that. And by programming a number of patches into its internal memory; patches that would be gone forever as they couldn’t be saved, I made a little ambient piece playing them and had a great time. The machine is now waiting for something to replace the floppy unit with, possibly a SCSI2SD solution. We’ve got one of those solutions in a Korg Triton here in the studio so that might be a decent choice for the Akai as well. New tutorials on Youtube: We’ve spent a few long nights to record a selection of tutorials & hoping you’ll enjoy those. And finally, the new refill 8Z is done, consisting of the completely free 8Z Free as well as 8Z Pro for those of you who tried 8Z Free and just can’t get enough. New custom programming for Arturia by us: We contributed with presets to both Pigments, their all new software synth, and to V Collection 7. We got to choose two or three included software synths to program sounds for so I did make a bunch of patches (and samples!) for CMI V, Easel and SEM. Always fun to be a part of a product like that; previously I’ve made factory patches for Clavia’s Nord Modular and for Reason, having a few of my sounds inherent in the Factory Sound Bank. Fun tidbit: For Clavia I even came up with the idea that would lead to the Micro Modular so I got one of the first ones directly from the factory, 15 minutes away from home by subway. But that was many moons ago! 🙂 Fairlight sound bank demo music collected: Don’t miss the vast collection of Fairlight demos using our sounds on Choon. Enjoy Fairlight Disk 1 and Fairlight Disk 2.
