Documentaries About Legendary Musical Equipment

Recommended Posts

Let's start with an easy one: The TB 303!

 

This movie start with the birth of the famous 303 (and the Roland-company) and it's breaktrough in the mid 80's.

personal note: The narrator sounds a bit like Steven Hawking, so it's a bit boring to listen to, but at the same time very interesting :)

Next up is the Moog Modular Synthesizer!

This thing is more than 50 years old and it has such a big history and influence on the history of electronic sound, that it is beyond us, human beings :)

 

if you have a short span of concentration and want to see how sexy moog's are:

Who didn't play on one of these babies back in the days: The Rodec MX 180!

The origin of the RODEC MX180 Original goes back as far as 1986, when the introduction of the MX-18 set a standard for many years to come for numerous professional users all over the world. With 18 inputs, 2 master outputs, multiple rec outputs, triple tone control, PFL, talk-over & a construction quality, sound performance and reliability that most manufacturers could only dream of the MX-18 was an instant success in most major markets in Europe, Asia an Canada.
True to the Hifi roots of the brand this mixer used first class components, modular set-up and rigid construction to make sure that this mixer could withstand the most fierce conditions in which a professional unit can in many cases be used. Although the basic lay-out and construction manner have not visibly changed over the years, the MX180 Original is in fact in 2009 a fifth generation MX180, which in no way resembles the original design as far as electronics are concerned.
Of course the product is still being manufactured entirely in Belgium, and of course we still use first class components with faders still being fixed individually to the front plate of the mixer, but of course technology has also evolved dramatically over the last 25 years.

One for the synth nerds and the curious alike, 

this documentary casts a light on a generation of post-punk musicians who took the synthesiser from the experimental fringes to the centre of the pop stage. 

Fans of 80s music, particularly Synth Pop bands like Heaven 17, OMD and that whole New Romantics scene will really get a kick out of this.
