When I bought an M1 I thought, wow! it sounds so great! Then, years later, I got Kurzweil 2500 and was blown away by its sounds. Suddenly, M1 did sound so great. Some time later, I was able to get a hold of one of the latest versions of Fairlight (Series III with MFX2 extension). I could stop listening to the incredible samples. The RS blew me away! Now, when I tried to go back to my K2500 (with KDFX), it no longer sounds so good! What happened???? My ears changed? I guess I got spoiled when I used the Fairlight! I am now selling my K2500 and already sold M1 (it's still a classic). All I can say now is I realized that one you drive a Rolls-Royce, you don't want to go back to a Honda or even Lexus....Fairlight is simply amazing!!!

After 17 years of lusting after this dream machine, I finally was able to get my hands on a Series 3 and have not been disappointed.

The sounds quailty is still out of this world, the keyboard feels wonderful and it's a joy to work with in general. Not as difficult as I had imagined it would be. The more I use her, the more she reveals herself to me.

The CMI may be a dinosaur by today's standards but I still feel it blows other samplers out of the water. The rich, warm Fairlight sound is classic! I'll never sell my Series 3.

I'm looking forward to getting back into making my own music again. The Fairlight just really is an inspiring piece of equipment.

Man the fairlight III pads are so Kewl. Especially the sarrar PAD. That Well KNown Breathy Voice Pad. I was able to get a one shot sample of it from my Formula 4000 E-mu SampleCD. Techno Synth. It was called CMI III Sarrar.

I took that one shot sample and Oh My GOd. WIth Sound Forge version 6.0 I was able to create the multi samples across two octaves that were flawless. No artifacts. No speeding up and down. The Pitch was perfect for each semitone I created. Absolutley perfect.

I have the Fairlight IIx Audio SCD. It totally sux.

Anyone knwo if there is a Fairlight III SCD in the works?

Anyone willing to work with me to create one?

My Series IIx is at the heart of my studio. Who says they are pass there sell by date. This instrument sounds totally different than anything else out there. They are increaseing in price, if your reading this thinking of buying a series II, IIx or even a series III buy it, that is if you can get someone who is willing to part with theirs. Page R stands for RULES.

One afternoon, after playing a concert with the Connecticut College orchestra, I was wandering around their music building and noticed that the door to their digital music lab was open. Never having seen it open before, I could not resist the urge to investigate. The first thing I noticed was their original NeXTCube, which they were using as a sequencer for some newer MIDI keyboards. Then, I saw it. In the far corner of the room, like a crouching tiger - the Fairlight CMI. I've never met Peter Gabriel, or The Pet Shop Boys, but that afternoon, I felt like I had.
