Milali is back, using the Future Retro Revolution to reach…something up on that shelf. We also see an Arturia MicroFreak – a personal favorite of ours – and the Korg MS-20 that we saw in Milali’s previous appearance.
This beautiful Siamese cat is holding court in a studio featuring an Akai APC40 controller (for Ableton Live), a pair of Korg Kaoss pads, and a Keith McMillen (KMI) QuNexus controller. And that appears to be a dead furby next to the cat.

Mae not helping with the OpSix
The OpSix is a reimagining of the classic Yamaha six-operator FM synthesizers of the 1980s. It expands on the original voice architecture with additional algorithms, and most significantly adds real-time surface controls and displays for each of the operators. It also includes filters and effects, something that was not part of the original DX series. It is definitely an interesting instrument if you want to check out classic DX-style FM synthesis.

The white cat from Kamal Sabran’s studio returns. We see a Behringer Poly D and DeepMind, sundry modular, and a lot of beautiful retro gear including reel-to-reel tape recorders. A microKORG appears to be stacked in the lower-left corner.
