MacBeth – Paul Hartnoll (Orbital) Meets the Nexus 1

December 10, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Last Sunday, Paul Hartnoll from the great electronic band Orbital paid a visit for tea and a sandwich, and also to talk synths a play around with some new projects that I’m working on. Here we see him tweaking with the MacBeth NEXUS 1 prototype. All sounds are recorded to the camera mic, as opposed to the desk- so don’t expect high quality. It was a fun day and I was a guest in the evening for a fantastic gig that featured the MacBeth M5N played by a master!

Here’s an experiment that I did. I replaced one octave of touch keys that I’m working on on an old scrap SH101…..it works perfectly!….my next shot is to give the scrapper SH101 a full three octaves as opposed to the two and a half octave keybed. If this all works- the touch keyboard I’m going to do as a stand-alone will have this built is seq! The sequencer is driving the up and coming Micromac-D synthesizer and I also played here the prototype of the experimental NEXUS 1 analogue touch synthesizer!
