Fairlight CMI 30th Anniversary Limited Edition


Fairlight co-founder Peter Vogel has posted some teaser information on a new, 30th Anniversary Limited Edition of the Fairlight CMI.

The teaser offers little more than a pre-production mockup photograph and the Fairlight CMI Series 30A name.

The original Fairlight CMI, released in 1979, is considered to be the first polyphonic digital sampling synthesizer. While few weres old, they were heard on very influential recordings by Herbie Hancock, Peter Gabriel, Duran Duran, Jean Michel jarre and others.

After successful modern releases by Moog and Dave Smith Instruments, a new Fairlight was probably inevitable.

What do you think? When you've got a computer full of software synths and samplers, does the idea of a hardware Fairlight CMI still trigger unrestrained gear-lust?
