Artist Feature: Strymon + Keyboards = <3

What do you get when you combine Strymon gear, synths and some creative minds? Check out some artists we have enjoyed recently with their mad keyboard and synth skills.

 

Peter Dyer joined us here at the Strymon shop and brought with him a ridiculous arsenal of cool keyboards. When he arrived his car was loaded up with a Dave Smith Prophet 12, Nord Stage 2, Korg Volca Keys, Arturia Microbrute, and the Therevox ET 4.3. We had a ton of fun recording these sound clips with him, and enjoyed hearing the many unique sounds he put together with BigSky.

 

Seif Sherif – Musician and visual artist Seif Sherif shared this picture of his Korg MS-20 and El Capistan.

 

Dylan Thomas
Check out this great tour photo that Hillsong United’s Dylan Thomas sent us.

Jonì Velásquez
We came across this picture that Jonì Velásquez hash-tagged us on and enjoyed all the Strymon synth goodness going on.

 

Yasmin Hadisubrata
Yasmin Hadisubrata hash-tagged us for this one which was shot while he was getting ready for his tour with Ivy Quainoo.

 

Scott Brown
Scott Brown took this atmospheric picture while experimenting with some drone sounds, hope we get to hear some of it!

TimeLine, BigSky and 5 Novation Bass Stations, yep you heard us right, 5 Novation Bass Stations. Got to check this out.

 

Edwin Lucchesi
Well this might be cheating putting this in the Keyboard/Synth feature, but it is crazy cool and we live in the digital age now and this Virtual ANS is a software simulator of the Russian synthesizer ANS. So that’s fair! Enjoy :)

 

Tim Oliver
Tim Oliver’s Roland Paraphonic-505 is full of wonder and that just builds up with the addition of El Capistan. Get taken on a wonderous journey while you listen to this one.

 

Jon Carolino
Jon Carolino’s videos have a way of soothing you into a nice calm. This one especially can help bring your heart rate down and you can just sit back, close your eyes and relax.

We’d be pleased if most of our “just noodling” turned out this beautiful. Noodle away zibbybone, we could listen for hours.

 

Trygve Stakkeland
Simple, beautiful and can we say even a little haunting.
