Herbie Hancock CMI on Sesame Street

Posted on 29 August 2013 by diode

This is some great footage of Herbie Hancock explaining some rudiments of what a sampler does. This is of course one of the first samplers available, the Fairlight CMI.

The Fairlight CMI

Posted on 09 February 2013 by MasterDelight

On a recent trip over to Venice my wife and I stumbled into this guy’s tie shop. What was interesting was he had a hold bunch of music equipment right in the middle of his shop. After talking with him for a couple of minutes he dropped the name Fairlight CMI. This was something I had never heard of before. After doing some research I stumbled upon this video of Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones rockin’ on this piece of gear.

The great news is the creator of the Fairlight CMI, Peter Vogel, is remaking these instruments (for about the price of a decent car). So, if this synth is your particular poison then enjoy this video and if you have never heard of this instrument before, welcome to the world of Fairlight CMI
