Re: Synth Documentaries

Re: It's Techno Amateur Hour!

I see what your getting at. Don't get me wrong, I like techno, especially the early Detroit stuff. It's just not something I hear a lot of these days, not going to clubs and raves as much as I use to. Of course, a big trancey lead its going to ruin a track like this.

Thats about 1500 under what you'd pay for the real thing, I reckon.

Re: Synth Technicians and Repairs

On the first page of this post back in 2005, Mr Rich mentioned a Roy Harrison of West Yorkshire, UK. Does anyone know if Roy is still available? Also are his contact details correct?
