Fairlight CMI Review - E&MM June 1981 (Dr David Ellis)

In depth technical review of the ultra legendary Fairlight CMI sampler + see The Holmes Page for more info. Although mind-numbingly expensive when it came out it ended being used by a wide variety of artists / studios including the BBC Radiophonic Workshop (see more articles on this site relating them here), Kate Bush, Stevie Wonder, The Art of Noise, SPK and Skinny Puppy. Review written by Dr David Ellis, based on an interview with Peter Vogel by Mike Beecher. Scanned from my copy of Electronics & Music Maker, June 1981.
