Thank You for listening and supporting!!
Been trying to get to this since it happened in June but this summer has been, well...
Last month we lost a great Record Producer, Rupert Hine.
He was responsible for many favorite recordings of mine in the 80's and 90's. I never looked for things he worked on, rather I would later find out that he was the producer behind many of the albums I was buying and music I was listening to. Besides being a musician and recording artist himself, he was behind a very impressive array of musical artists.
Saga Wind Him Up from World's Apart.
Plus the album Heads or Tales.
Rush from Presto. Love Neil's crash hit - like suspended in mid air.
Duncan Sheik from the first album.
Plus all the great Fixx albums.
SO many really great recordings !!
Alan R. Pearlman passed away today at age 93. Founder of ARP synthesizers. He was nicknamed “ARP” as a kid growing up in New York City, so it seemed the perfect name for a company when he was later designing electronic musical instruments. The first instrument created by Alan was the modular synthesizer known as the ARP 2500. The monophonic product was released years after the first Moog and Buchla instruments, but gained attention for several new features including the ever-popular function of not drifting out of tune, which was a common problem in the earlier products. Next came the now classic ARP 2600, and soon the company became a great leader in the growth and development of the electronic musical market.
So now I know why it was named ARP!
The only time I got to use a real ARP was in a recording studio, they had an old ARP Odyssey. We were doing some very experimental stuff, and in the middle there was an interlude where I got to have some fun. I can still remember getting on tape one of the coolest sounding metallic/robotic sounds.
The classic Arp 2600, heard on its most famous example - Frankenstein: @ 3:16 in
