Bernd Kistenmacher hat den brandneuen Iridium Keyboard Synthesizer von Waldorf, der erstmlig ein Keyboard mit polyphonem Aftertouch besitzt, für die Online-Plattform Amazona.de ausführlich getestet und ist begeistert.
Zitat:”Würde ich Polyphonic Aftertouch fälschlicherweise mit „PHAT“ abkürzen, träfe es dennoch haargenau meine Einschätzungen bzgl. des gesamten Iridium Keyboard Synthesizers. Exzellent!”
the brandnew and really hot IRIDIUM KEYBOARD synthesizer from WALDORF has arrived in Bernd Kistenmacher’s Studio in Berlin and is now ready for intensive tests.
This sounddesigners dream completes the Quantum / Iridium Synthesizer family and will be soon presented on german Amazona.de platform as well as in Bernd Kistenmacher’s own FreakOutYourSynth YouTube channel.
Das Wilmersdorfer Kiez-Magazin hat eine nette Titelstory über Bernd Kistenmacher gemacht in der er über seine Musik, seine Biografie, seine aktuellen Buchpläne und über die Gedenktafel für das Electronic Beat Studio redet. Das Magazin liegt vorzugsweise in kulturellen Einrichtungen aus.
This story could not be more crazy but after 33 years I could my so beloved original ARP 2600 back by an accidental find. It is one of the last synthesizers which where sold until 1980. It is the orange version with the so versatile 3620 keyboard with an extra LFO. And it is looking like a brandnew item after all this years. Why? Well this synthesizer was bought around 1980 buy a church organplayer in the city of Mühlheim in the german Ruhrgebiet. I am not sure if the organist left the community or passed away, but he definetly used this instrument just for a very few times. Then it was burried in the church organ itself and forgotten in time. Until the priestess of the church found it in summer 2021. The people there quickly understood, what treasure they had found. They offered it in the internet and I bought it 2 weeks ago. Now my buddy is back home in my studio and since I also own a Korg ARP 2600FS, the best replica of this true classic, that you can get for your money, I am able now to compare this both classics. What a battle. So please expect soon another cool episode of Freak-Out-Your-Synth on my YouTube channel and a test for Amazona.de, which I am actually writing. Great things are coming soon. I am happy and pumped about that. Until this moment comes, please watch a short video about my lastest find on YouTube.
