"I just wanted to let you know we are completing the new Metric record up here in freezing cold Toronto and I used the .com not only to write about half the new record, but also to track most of it. Its just simply one of the best instruments I've ever owned. And I've owned a lot! I have a studio 66 and have now ordered more modules from you and have some out of the cabinet." - James

I wanted to let you guys know that we released a video this morning of a song from our upcoming record that prominently features my AMAZING system.

The song itself is about 70% Some Linn drum, a bit of Arp 2600 and the intellijel shapeshifter as the vocoder. I found that I wrote almost all of the record using a simple duophonic patch that I made using the Q960 sequencer to make bass lines and the left hand to transpose them. All while playing the melody on the right hand. This was the moment of inspiration for the record.

This song, cascades, is one of many songs on the record that highly features your synth.

The single that we released last month also uses the in the same way, though a touch less prominent.

I can't begin to tell you how important that instrument has been to the last 3 years of my life, so thank you!
