A quick video of Geoff Downes live rig for the 2011 YES tour – recorded at Bristol Colston Hall. Sorry but its only a very quick video – problems with my phone…. Maybe next time….
Geoffrey “Geoff” Downes (born 25 August 1952) is an English rock keyboard player, songwriter, best known as the keyboardist for the bands The Buggles, Yes and Asia, of which he is the only consistent member. When he was a keyboardist for The Buggles, he played multiple keyboards to achieve a New Wave technopop sound. He was once entered for the Guinness Book Of Records for performing with the most keyboards (28) on stage in one performance.

Here’s a live video with Sweden’s synth pop queen Emmon, to learn more check out our interview with her right here >>
Stereoklang got an interview with Emmon, real name is Emma Nylén, who has been very active in the Swedish and Scandinavian electro synthpop scene since several years back. She has been dubbed the title “Electro pop queen of Sweden”. Now the rumors are hot on the net that there is a new album on its way and Stereoklang caught up with her to ask her if this is true and also took the opportunity to talk about music production, DJ-ing and of course synthesizers, hard and soft. To find out more about her go here >>
I guess how professional it is remains to be seen, if you have tried it feel free to leave your comments.
VocaLive for iPad now available in the iTunes App Store! VocaLive for iPad takes an already powerful vocal processing app that has become a favorite on the iPhone® and iPod touch® and makes it even more powerful. The iPad version adds a fourth effect slot to the signal processing chain, and two of those effect slots can hold the specific “vocal effects” compared to just one vocal effect per chain on the iPhone version. The preset browser is also available in the main window of the interface making loading and saving VocaLive presets even easier. The Favorites section has been expanded from 4 to 40 in the iPad version utilizing a new bank button. Favorites put presets right in the bottom panel on large, accessible buttons for immediate loading of the artist’s most-used settings.
VocaLive includes 5 Vocal Effects — Pitch Fix (for tuning correction or stylized quantization FX), Choir (a 3-part harmonizer), Morph (an X-Y pitch and formant shifter that changes the tonal quality of the voice from subtle deepening to radical gender bending) Double (Double effect gets unlocked by registering) and De-Esser — along with 7 Studio Effects — Reverb, Delay, Parametric EQ, Compressor, Chorus, Phazer and Envelope Filter — that together create the perfect vocal processing solution.
VocaLive for iPad features:
- Real time vocal processor + recording app
- 4-processor vocal effects chain
- 12 professional studio quality vocal effects
- Single track recorder expandable to a full 8-track recording studio with master effects section, available for purchase in the in-app Shop
- Import and play songs to be used as backing tracks directly from your music library or computer
- Voice Cancel feature lets you create sing-along backing tracks by removing the vocal track from existing recordings
- 50 presets included with 4 Favorites for fast recall
- Includes metronome and vocal warm-up tools
- Low-latency for real time vocal processing
Sonic State has produced this video featuring the synth maestro himself on stage and behind the scenes, here’s a quote from article:
The thing that really hit me, was the power and purity of the sound and the songs. With Benge (musical collaborator on Interplay) playing the Simmons SDS V analog drum kit, the sounds were MASSIVE and really made me rethink my opinions of electronic music played live. I became rather evangelical.
Fast forward to London and the first of two gigs at XOYO further into the UK leg of the tour. We were able to grab a few precious minutes post sound check with Benge, who gave us a look at some of the gear used to recreate Interplay live, as well as some earlier tunes from the Foxx catalog.
Stay tuned for a pre-show interview with John Foxx, Benge and Tara Bush.
For those of you who wants to know more about John check out our interview with him here >>

Korg EMX sequencing IPad Sunrizer for Pads, IPad also used to provide spacey effects with ModAxis app. Acid is on the FutureRetro Revolution.
“The Revolution is our latest concept synthesizer with an intuitive interface that we feel most accurately represents the principles of time and music. From ancient sundials to modern day analog clocks, time has been represented as the circle, a cycle which never ends. Time itself is nothing more than our perception of the revolution of planets as they journey through their celestial orbit. It is this motion that we call time that can be measured, divided, and arranged to provide the foundation of music. This circular cyclic theme can furthermore be found throughout music in everything from song structure and repeating rhythms to the fundamentals of sound itself, being the sine wave. With this understanding we must conclude that music is cyclic and should so be represented in its natural form.
And so it is…the Revolution, a true analog monophonic synthesizer with an easy to use step-based digital sequencer, analog and DSP effects processing, and various interfacing for controlling MIDI, CV/Gate, and Din Sync devices.
Continuing in our tradition of building quality products, this unit is housed in a rugged aluminum chassis with aluminum side panels, a high contrast white on gun metal grey finish for superior viewing of controls in dark environments, and bright blue LEDs all around.”
