Recording with tons of hardware

They sure have a lot of gear running :-)

“Sometimes I/people wonder if I need all those delays in the studio. This was merely an attempt to use most of them (62%?) in one recording.
Some people like fast cars, I like slow delays.

Hard delays used in this recording:

Roland RE-201
Roland RE-301
Roland Re-501
Korg SDD-1200
Dynacord SRS-56
Aria AD-15 Locobox
AP S-303
TC Electronics D-Two
Ensoniq DP/2

The main sounds come from four loops in Ableton Live.
The rest is Korg Mono/Poly, Stylophone and beer.”

The Stylophone in action

The Stylophone appears on a few commercial recordings, most notably David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” and “Slip Away” and the commercial rave single “Stylophonia” by Two Little Boys in 1991. Kraftwerk used the Stylophone on the track “Pocket Calculator” from their album Computer World.

The Dubreq Stylophone is a miniature stylus operated synthesizer invented in 1967 by Brian Jarvis. It consists of a metal keyboard played by touching it with a stylus – each note being connected to a cheap voltage-controlled oscillator via a different-value resistor – thus closing a circuit. Some three million Stylophones were sold, mostly as children’s toys. Rolf Harris appeared for several years as the Stylophone’s advertising spokesman in the United Kingdom.
