    I am wondering what Brian Eno thought about the Fairlight, given his history of using tape loops to make his creations.

  • History of Synthesis- the invention of sampling, the Fairlight CMI

    https://www.nfsa.gov.au/latest/fairl...ented-sampling

    An interesting article that discusses the invention of the sampling synthesizer by two Australians, Kim Ryrie and Peter Vogel. The machine was called the Fairlight CMI, and featured on albums by such noted musicians as Jean Michel Jarre on 'Zoo Look', Kate Bush on 'Hounds of Love', Peter Gabriel and Laurie Anderson (This Is The Picture) on 'So'. Also Todd Rundgren used it on 'A Capella' in 1985, and Thomas Dolby used it as well.
