We live in a digital age. That’s great in a lot of ways. Still, the sound, look and feel of analog instruments continue to fascinate and attract us. In this series, we’ll take a new look at these wonderful instruments. Starting from the the good vibrations that create the sound, we proceed to look at some drum machine, synthesizer and effects gear that puts those analog vibes to musical use. Lastly, joined by some of our favorite artists, we tackle the analog/digital issue. We hope to learn stuff and have fun here. Our primary goal is to inspire further exploration. Let’s go.
