An overview of what's in store for BT's Juno-106 as it transforms into a Kiwi-106 machine!
It's official: BT has entered the Kiwiverse, and a Kiwi-106 is the first of the upgrades he's chosen to add to his musical arsenal. Check out how his very first synth was loved, lost, and then redeemed: This is one very cool story!
Our friend kpsiegel demonstrates original sounds and sequences created with Kiwi-106 and the Vyzex Kiwi-106 editor. Very cool, indeed!
A compilation of the demonstration performances by Syntegrator and David C. Lovelace recorded during the 2014 NAMM show.
If it's wicked shredding, it's Dave, if it's simple notes held on or a particularly evil 8th note bassline, it's the Kiwi-106 Sequencer as programmed by Syntegrator.
The patches played are from the Syntegrator Sound Set, soon to be posted to kiwi-106.com.
Rosso Corsa records has just outfitted their studio with a Syntegrator reconditioned Kiwi-106.
Rosso Corsa Records specializes in Outrun Electro, Synthwave and Chillwave in dedication to the 1980s. Check out their catalog at http://rossocorsarecords.com/
Dave C. Lovelace has revised his gear pages to reflect the upgraded status of his 'true love' Juno-106:
Dave says: "... [it's] the most impressive conjoined hardware & software mod I have ever seen: the KIWI-106 upgrade, turning this solid 4-star vintage plaything into a bona-fide 5-star world-crusher."
Thanks for the awesome review, Dave!
What happens when a Kiwi-106, Packrat Dave, Syntegrator and the immensely riff-tastic Andrew Colyer get together late one Sunday night after the 2014 NAMM show has finally closed? Witness the results, if you dare... ;-)
Syntegrator and Dave C. Lovelace (the creator of the Packrat Comic strip) go on a safari through the Syntegrator sound set, soon to be available for download from http://kiwi-106.com.
Syntegrator and Dave C. Lovelace (creator of the Packrat comic strip) upgrade Dave's Kiwi-106 to firmware version 1.03. If you need to upgrade your firmware, check this one out for all the details...
