Walk and Weft

The Hydrasynth has arrived!

Posted by Daniel Paulo on

My first synth since last October's Moog Matriarch; the ASM Hydrasynth!    It was top of my wish list for a longtime and at last I have decided to buy the desktop version.  My impressions of it so far are very positive, great interface and build quality.  Sound very thin and digital, but that's to be expected, and with a little work lovely warm sounds come out of it. Of course we make a cover for this synth and its nice to see cover and synth together 'in the flesh'. https://annstweed.com/collections/synthesizer-dust-covers/products/asm-hydrasynth-synthesizer-dust-cover-desktop-version

Our Synth Dust Cover advert in Electronic Sound magazine

I've been subscribing to Electronic Sound for a few years and it seemed like the obvious choice for our first venture into advertising.  The latest issue has arrived: The pic shows a Moog Matriarch with loads of cables plugged into the back, a slightly jokey way of demonstrating that the synth can stay covered no matter what is left connected.

Korg Prologue and Nonlinear Labs C15 dust covers

Posted by Daniel Paulo on

Just launched are three new dust covers. Having had a Korg Minilogue XD for some time I was amazed at how much better a playing experience was had when hooked up to a 5 octave keyboard - in other words a Prologue.  This great synth comes in 4 octave, 8 voice or a 5 octave, 16 voice version and we have covers for both: https://annstweed.com/collections/synthesizer-dust-covers/products/korg-prologue-synthesizer-dust-cover-8-or-16-voice Also, a very intriguing synth, the Nonlinear Labs C15, it is very unconventional and geared towards playing - no sequencing or even MIDI!  Sonically very exciting with very good payment options to ease the purchasing...

From pile of rust to working pirn winder

Posted by Daniel Paulo on

The pirn winder is an important piece of kit for the Hattersley Loom weaver.  Correctly set up it will provide a consistent pirn for the shuttle, perfectly wound.

Our winder was a motorless pile of rust, a month later a very handy working machine!
