Hard-Core Gear Porn Friday!!!

If you were ever curious as to the studio that lives in my head, when I think about what my studio should be, instead of what it is, above is a picture of it. Of course, it doesn't have Michael Hoenig in it, hardly ever. And I imagine I could probably come up with a better storage medium than the mass quantity of 5.25" floppies he has. And I almost certainly wouldn't have a DX7 in it. But otherwise, yup, that's it pretty much exactly.


For the full-size, click here. This is taken from the Santuarios site, which consists, by and large, exclusively of scans of semi-famous synth players sitting in front of their rigs from 80s-era Keyboard magazines. The early 80s were kind to neither fashion nor hairstyles, but there's some pretty fly-ass synths to be had. All the usual suspects are well-represented, and you can easily spend an hour getting your monitor all sticky-like going through the photos. The rest of the site is in some language that isn't English, and is thus completely oblique to an American such as myself.

In that vein, I was wondering if we'd see something like a plugin version of the DX100, now that Yamaha owns Steinberg. I personally don't care for FM7, but it sure does make programming DX-style sounds easy. The DX100 is even easier, so it would stand to reason that it would translate to a plugin environment quite readily.

(A) That's not what I meant at all.

(B) See A.

There are about 450,000 FM synth plugins available. I'm talking specifically about Steinberg's purchase by Yamaha, and how we might see some interesting FM synths as a result, since Yamaha pwns that shit.
