Anyway, onwards and upwards, we've just managed a couple of weeks away summer break but before we left we finished a nice collection of analogue percussion sounds for Future Music issue 231 and thought we'd take a look at a few of the tasty little beauties we used to make the samples.
First up is this gem; a Star instruments Synare 3 percussion synth, rescued from a dusty Swiss studio cupboard and passed to us to be shown some love (and hit, a lot). Full of UFO style this late '70s synth features twin oscillators, low pass filter and a white noise generator. All in all a bit of a beast sound-wise and a real hands-on joy to muck about with.
You can download some samples of the monster in advance of the issue from our Soundcloud page here and here
