First sounds from the CMI-30A
Peter Vogel has posted the first sounds of the new CMI-30A. These sounds hightlight the new 'brew' function. To quote Peter:

"One of these is the ability to 'brew' two or more sounds together, such that they take on each other's flavours. Technically, this is an extension of convolution, which is a method for creating reverberation or ambience."

OOH and a Trumpet just mixed
Here is the 30A's brew: OOH and Trumpet brew

A couple of other examples of the new Fairlight Brews:

Grunt and Piano brew
Truly a piano with grunt!

Shaker and Drum brew
(Try to imagine what this instrument looks like)

Cello and racing car brew
(Imagine a symphony orchestra string section packed into a racing car, approaching then receeding into the distance).

Click here for the post on the Fairlight Instruments forum including the samples.

Here's a close up of the keypad on the new Fairlight keyboard. It's in fact an iPhone docking station.

These are again exciting times in the world of sampling.
