Thanks to Roland Canada who came to visit the studio for a little interview about my work with Jean-Michel Jarre and on different Roland gear I use.
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.
