SonicState Airs Top 20 Synths Show

Friday February 16, 2007. 08:01 AM, by Nolot Industry
Industry : SonicState Airs Top 20 Synths Show - macmusicOur friends from SonicState.com have started streaming a new IPTV video show called The Top 20 Greatest Synths. The show is based around interviews with synth users and collectors like Will Gregory (Goldfrapp), Roger O'Donnell (The Cure), Ade Utley (Portishead) and Howard Jones (Howard Jones!) and features footage, photos and facts about the greatest electronic instruments ever made.

"We've based the chart on the votes that have been coming in plus a bit of poetic license to include some outsiders, underdogs and a few surprises!" Sonic founder Nick Batt and former BBC producer Simon Power have been pleased with the response to previews of the show already available to watch at Sonic.

"It's basically an excuse to rant about all-things-synth in a show that's shamelessly nostalgic about electronic music and keyboards with knobs on." The Jupiter 8, Korg M1, Yamaha CS80, JV10-80, SH101 and Odyssey all get featured on the chart as well as some youngsters like the Access Virus, Dave Smith's Evolver, the Alesis Andromeda and the Korg Oasys. "We know not everyone will be happy with the positioning on the chart, but there's enough in the show's to keep everyone smiling."

The Top 20 Synths will be presented as eight 10 minute videocasts posted once a fortnight on Sonic and YouTube and at various other outlets. Then the programme will be posted in its entirety at the end of the run.

The Top 20 Greatest Synths goes live at sonicstate.com on February 14th.
