That performance by Gaz was amazing! So much joy and happines thrown into one song all done by one man - wow.

This is so much better than the version I did on my Roland E-16 in my soundcloud Christmas calender. Huge thumps up, Mr. Williams!

And thanks for a great show, guys. I'm a new listener, but I've been catching up on old Sonic Talks on youtube lately and they're all great and often very informative as well.

You were talking about really synth-y x-mas songs and I know one! It is in swedish but listen to the synthesizers!

Damn, that CS-80 sounds great even over Skype. Nice performances on this episode. Great show as usual.

Synths vs. real instruments is a tired old argument. Wendy Carlos and Tomita proved the naysayers foolish many years ago. For some amazing orchestral stuff check out the YouTube demos for DVZ Strings. The composer designed it to mimic the different string sections and the live MIDI tweaking or the parts/styles would make Vangelis jealous. Of course the system costs about $10k, but in the hands of someone in the know it is impressive.

There are tons of synth x-mas songs. The most obvious is Band-Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas.
