September 13, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Earlier this week we saw Adrian trying out the Arturia MiniBrute now it is time to check out his own studio and large synth collection

Source visited Portishead’s Adrian Utley in his home studio to get his reactions to the Arturia MiniBrute analog synth. While we were there Adrian gave us a tour of his analogue synth collection (the stuff that was there, that is!).

Massive thanks go to Adrian Utley for kindly letting us visit, and for sharing his thoughts.
