Roland Newslink - Autumn 85

Roland News

Plus Prize Crossword


It is evident that, with the current availability of low priced outboard effects, more people are becoming 'production conscious'. This edition of 'Newslink' features interviews with Gary Numan and Tom Robinson, both of them proficient musicians who have become producers of their own, and others' material. Incidently, our next issue will feature Paul Hardeastle who did it the other way round! Both Gary and Tom use equipment easily available to most musicians and their views on playing and recording are as relevant to the home studio set-up as they would be to Abbey Road. Enjoy reading them, and we would like to thank you for your letters, suggestions, and crossword entries. A surprisingly large number of correct entries came in although some complained it was hard. You may find the current one slightly less brain damaging...

Ashra's Manuel Gottsching


U.K. Electronica is an annual electronic music festival and convention aimed at musicians and enthusiasts. It is an all day concert with demonstrations and trade stands for musical instruments, records and cassettes.

The venue this year was at Sheffield University on 24th August. Headline performers were Ian Boddy and Ashra.

The concerts were superb, both artistically and technically. Ian Boddy in particular went down very well. He used a Roland 100M system, RE501 echo, SBF 325 Stereo Flanger and a Boss DE200.

Mark Jenkins

Local Sheffield band "Wavestar" were also well received. They used mainly analogue synthesizers including a Juno 6 and a VP330 vocoder plus.

Altres, a five piece band, used two SH101's and a TR606, while Stevo, a solo performer, used a RE501 echo and his only piece of digital equipment was a TR707. Ashok Prema, another solo performer, used a JP6 and MSQ700. Mark Jenkins used MSQ-700, Juno 106 and TR808, in his intricate live set.
