Ed Macfarlane of the English dancerock band Friendly Fires just sent us a photo of his blueSky Reverberator in the studio! They’ve been using blueSky all over their new record. We’re looking forward to hearing what they’ve crafted!
I love the video for their song “Skeleton Boy”… check it out:
Hey everyone… You may know me as the Strymon marketing guy, but i’m also a guy that spends way too much time writing songs and making videos. Here’s a piece I put together the other day that starts out with an old Univox drum machine running into both blueSky and El Capistan. The knobs slowly get cranked up all the way to create a wash of drippy shimmery drum machine echos.
I decided to turn this drum machine effects noise fest into a more involved piece, so I added piano, guitar, drums, vocals and some synths. El Capistan is also used heavily on the Roland Juno-6 and Yamaha DX21 synth parts. Hope you dig it.
