This is what a shop full of synth drones recorded through a $6k microphone on a turntable sounds like

Thomann's inaugural Synth Reactor event brought together a meeting of creative minds. Minds that could possibly seen as slightly unhinged, which made the whole prospect an even more interesting one.

In this particular revelry, Look Mum No Computer, Hainbach and others took it upon themselves to create a “music shop mega drone”, with help from a shop full of synths, all recorded through a Neumann KU100 - Binaural Dummy Head Mic System, mounted on top of a turntable.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
