Picture poser: did Jane decide she'd always wanted to look like a grungy pop person?
Or are they all giggling underneath it?

Perhaps more peculiar is the way that console is just sort of shoved into the room at an odd angle with no monitors anywhere in sight....

Equally peculiar is the PAIA 4700 midst those classics.

One of these synths is not like the others, one of these synths doesn't belong.. :hihi:

Well, if there's no patch cables, there's no need for monitors, right? ;-)

If it weren't for the console being switched on (along with the Lexicon controller) I would have thought they were moving it in and trying to decide where to put it...

While I have the utmost respect for PAiA, that surprised me as well. Definitely feels out of place... It actually took me a minute to realize what it was, since I have only seem them with silver panels.

What's that modular in the center? I have seen them before, but am blanking on the name....

Elektor Formant.

Those are stock PAIA panels. They are chrome steel in the 4700 and were aluminum in the 2700. You can see the difference clearly in the lower right where a 2720-5 control oscillator/noise is brighter than the others. 4700 panels often look dark like that in pics.

And some nice EMS! There's an FFB peeking past the photo edge.

I missed out the minimoog at first, and the ARP Sequencer. Nice synth spotting pic.

Interesting - I did not know this!

I noticed the 1601 sequencer quickly, though perhaps only because I just built a second one for a friend...

Polyfu's hard to miss with those distinctive thick sides,4U-2U and angles.
Still puzzled about the bright shiny on the shelf under the leftmost Formant. Thick sides again, but not Polyfu, doesn't look EMS, thought at first EML, but no..
Hey dude in blue, can you move just a bit to the left? :hihi:

That's Benge's studio, which is certainly not a "just for show" type location - quite a lot of heavy duty stuff comes out of there. Not pictured is the Serge, buchla, and original Moog modular stuff, among other things. He really has a great collection of vintage stuff, and the paia is just a little bit of fun amongst it all.

That looks like one of Roginator's custom polyfusion remakes

I thought that looked like Benge.

Just woken up from a strange night in a daze and seeing Jane Horrocks (recently seen her as Bubble in Ab Fab film) and Stephen Malinder working together is making it no less surreal.

Just to say..the Formant is patched internally. you have a few Patch points but routing is preconfigured. Great Sounding systems.
