The future is bright, the future is….Omnichord

My good friend over at Experimental Audio Studio recently invested in an Omnichord from e-bay. It arrived yesterday, and when we got to the studio it became an instant hit! I fear we may have to scrap all the work that went into our new album, and start fresh. I’m thinking something more along the lines of this, but it’s gonna be a long time before we reach the standard set by this guy. He’s in a league of his own!

According to Wikipedia – An Omnichord is an electronic musical instrument manufactured by the Suzuki Musical Instrument Corporation. It typically features a touch plate and numerous chord buttons. The most basic method of playing the instrument is to press the chord buttons, and strum the touch plate. Omnichords often feature preset rhythms with a tempo control which the player may use as accompaniment. Other features may include a selection of voices, and effects such as vibrato and sustain, as well as a chord memory in more advanced models.

All hail the Omnichord!
