New England Digital | Synclavier
The Synclavier is something like the Rolls Royce of vintage synthesizer heritage. The only competition in its time came from the Australian made Fairlight CMI. The Synclavier was a wildly expensive vintage digital sampling synthesizer reserved for the most successful musicians, commercial studios, and sound designers. Designed during the '70's, they can still be found and prized by various sound designers, composers, and musicians. Although there have been three models, they are most often referred to as just a Synclavier.
First released in 1977 it proved to be highly influential among both electronic music composers and music producers, due to its versatility, its cutting-edge technology and distinctive sounds.
