Fairlight Instruments have released version 1.1.8 of Fairlight and Fairlight Pro. The update Includes the new iOS 5 compatible Akai Synthstation library, so that the SynthStation works with the Fairlight App.
Experience music making ‘80s style with this awesome retro app, modelled on the legendary Fairlight Computer Musical Instrument. Preloaded with 500+ CMI Series II sounds and 100+ Series III sounds, for the first time a byte-perfect re-issue of the classic CMI sounds of the 80s.
This app includes the famous ‘Page R’, which was the world’s first screen-based rhythm sequencer. Today every sampler, digital synthesiser, sequencer and audio workstation can trace its lineage back to this legendary machine.
Now you can make music using tools like those used by artists including Alan Parsons, Jean Michel Jarre, Trevor Horn, Thomas Dolby, Brian Eno, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder and so many more.
This app is a part midi player, part creative tool and part history lesson – developed by Fairlight staff who worked on the CMI in the ’80s.
