The Andromeda is a pretty ugly looking synth, and it's massive. Not surprised they're not super popular in videos or tours
Moog LP + Casio SK1 and MT-75 + tube amp = good tone.

Well maybe... but plenty of people use, and lug around bigger and uglier pianos and keys because that is what makes their sound.

I have two flight cases here in the room with me that I could fit all my synths into. Yet they were for one organ that clearly went on tour all over the world.

Without anything in it it weighs a ton

But Analogue Crazy gigs his Andromeda all the time - right?

So you're touring at a lowish level with those flight cases?? Man, that must KILL your budget! I see a lot of Nord Leads and even now P08s on tour, I'm guessing because they're light and relatively small. Of course really big bands could tour with an Andy... but for a smaller band it looks big enough to be a hassle

Yeah i gig my Andromeda all the time. My live setup is my Andromeda, RD-700SX Stage Piano and DX7S. Im sure it's time will come,people will catch onto it eventually, even if it takes many years. I like LP a lot but never thought it would be like Microkorg in popularity.

Yep, she was waaaay better back in the geeky bedroom synth days.

I sure hope she wasn't pulling a Ladytron and playing chords on that LP. It looked like it for a moment (tho doubtful that patch was even being played by the Moog).

It's worth noting that Page McConnell of Phish played an Andromeda live for ages - until the most recent tour, I believe, where he replaced it with a Little Phatty (And james Brown's Moog Liberation keytar which is reserved specifically for playing "Frankenstein" on...)

I've heard that Phish doing 'Frankenstein' on James Brown's keytar is the first and last sign of the apocalypse.
Too futurist to live.

I was fully prepared to be a contrarian and like that song, but it was a pile of production cliches without much in the way of redeeming qualities. She could do (and has done) so much better.

Im glad there is a little 'Synthpop Rivival' happening but i honestly cant get into it. It's not deep enough and dark enough for me to bother listening to it, sounds like meaningless overproduced pop to me. And i consider it a waste of Analogue Synths in most respects. Come on Britain, we can do better than this! Lets have another 'Black Celebration' or 'Violator'.

Sadly, the only thing I can think of that comes close is "Sounds of the Universe".... I don't know of anybody else doing it at the moment. Portishead's latest was great, but not tuneful. Is Barry Adamson still doing solo stuff?

That has to be the best review of the Tenori-off I've read. :lol:
