It was the early 90's and I had the music bug. By this time I had been clubbing and loved the electronic music that was hitting and would hit in the '90s. I can do this myself I thought. So I set about building a studio on a set of shelves placed on the wall of my 2x2m bedroom!
I bought a second-hand drum machine, that I never understood how to work. I bought a MIDI keyboard, but when it arrived it was something called a Novation Bass Station.
Well I bought more than a keyboard, this Bass Station was a synthesiser - but I could not make any sound, I did not yet have an audio interface.
Eventually, I would find a way to make them sound and even record them. But this was at least 6 months later and I was done.
An up and coming band wanted to buy a drum machine. They came over with the little money they had and bought the drum machine. I gave them the Bass Station.
But that was my first experience with Novation gear. I recently purchased the Circuit Tracks and WOW. Watch the next few blogs for more.
