The second Fairlight preview – CMI-30A sampling

July 15, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

In this second video preview of the new Fairlight CMI-30A, Peter Vogel demonstrates the sampling page. This video includes what is probably the most expensive method of generatng a sawtooth wave known to mankind.

A bit of trivia: the sounds sampled in the making of this demo are used in the sting at the start and end of the video. Listen on big speakers.

The new CMI is unique in that it produces the classic “Fairlight sound” that defined music of the eighties as well as the modern Fairlight sound — that of uncompromising signal purity.

Both these extremes are made possible by the extraordinary processing power of the Crystal Core engine which lies at the heart of the system.

The Crystal Core media processor(CC-1) was developed by Fairlight.AU as the engine for its range of top-end digital audio workstations. The CC-1 uses FPGA (field-programmable gate array) to achieve performance far in excess of what can be achieved using even the fastest digital signal processor of conventional design.
