For twenty five years from 1980 I used EMS synthesizers, originally a VCS 3 and latter a Synthi AKS, and they can be heard all over my work during that period. I also used them when I was involved with SPK, including live (the first two SPK albums featured Synthi’s extensively). Coincidentally I also recorded the first Lustmord album at the EMS Putney studio (London) in 1981. I used only a few other synths over the years, a Roland unit, a Korg Wavestation briefly and a Waldorf Microwave, but all minimally as I prefer audio manipulation to synthesis. But the VCS3 and the Synthi AKS were a major part of my sonic arsenal. read more [here…]
