Colossus: A Once In A Generation Synthesizer

US Alex Ball on the mighty machine      14/07/23

Alex Ball is back with another squelch-filled look at a gargantuan synthesizer. This time its the Analogue Solutions Colossus, an almost room-sized synth with a phenomenal amount of features - performed to near perfection by Alex. In other big synth news, if you missed his video on the giant MS-20; that's also worth a watch:

Here's an explanation of the Colossus in his words...
