Jorg n Rico with Spectralis
The Spectralis is a monster of a synth, not only is it designed by ace boffin Jorg Schaaf, but its got the backing of Radikal Technologies, who are involved in the manufacture and distribution of the unit. They make rather fetching control surfaces and have leant some of their knobs and buttons to make it look just so. Itâ€™s become something of a custom to catch up with Jorg whenever we see him at a show for him to blow us away with another great demo of the Spectralis. This time, not only did we get a look at the new features, but we also got a hands on performance from German techno artist Rico, better known as LFO-One. New features we saw were the random patch generator, where elements are taken from sounds in memory and brought together. Theres also now the capability to add a MIDI layer to the sequencer so you have another 32 levels of MIDI control data to transmit to external gear. For those not familiar with what the Spectralis can do, we recommend viewing this footage â€“ itâ€™s pretty stunning. See below for a summary of the machines capabilities.
We caught up with one third of the Drum and Bass trio to talk modular
