Already 3 years ago, I was honoured to join Jean Michel Jarre production team with Joachim Garraud, Claude Samard with my old friend Marco Grenier for this incredible journey of collaborations with the legends of electronic music history.
“Electronic music has a family, it has a legacy and it has a future.”

Somewhere in december 2015 I had a chance to get my hands on a defect Hartmann Neuron Synthesizer. This is a rare synth and the chances to get my hands on a second hand unit around here were really close to none.
Since I have this setup I’ve been struggling with the MIDI Express XT… It’s always when this nice 16 beat bassline that has a lot of potential is finally there, when you get that banging beat right… that It decide to fail… Turning an inspiring evening into a stressful troubleshooting episode…
This MIDI Express XT is what I decided to get as an upgrade of my 2 serial MOTU MTP AV that was also an upgrade from an old parallel MIDI Timepiece 2 (I am not learning) I was kinda used to glitches with MOTU products… I ended up thinking that the XT was just a new faceplate on the old hardware, and it still have the old problems with it.
