NAN ABEIt’s been a long time coming and the time is night!

New Alliance North is Officially available for rental as an authentic creative space for making electronic music.  What makes New Alliance North special is a focus on real time music creation.  It’s a place to bring your laptop and record in a way that is free from the DAW that lurks within the screen.

All machines in the studio are synced via a master tempo clock in the analog domain with a Roland XBS 80.

This box allows all devices to be in sync and play in real time together.  Even better is that you can stop and play and device independently of the others!  Want the TR808 to be one half measure late to create a new rhythm?  Hit play whenever you want!

Another great performance device is Garfield Electronics Mini-doc.  There’s a few of these wired up for mapping arpeggiator clock to any synth that can see it!

Drum Machines: For drum programming we offer all variants of technology and heritage.

Roland TR 808

Roland TR 909

Lindrum LM2

Oberheim DX / DMX

Simmons SDS V drum synthesizer

Bass Synths: we have a station set up that can be played via keyboard, or sequenced via gate patterns from an MFB SEQ-01 :

Sequential Circuits Pro 1 (Midi)

Arp 2600

Poly Synths. The list poly synth flavors is pretty vast but the basic hitters are:

Roland Jupiter 6 Europa

Roland Jupiter 8 Encore MIDI

Yamaha TX-816

Sequential Circuits Multitrak

Oberheim OB-8 / DSX sequencer

Oberheim Xpander

Roland Juno 60 MIDIPOLIS

SCI Max, Roland JX8P, Yamaha TX81z, Roland MKS80, Roland MKS70, Roland Juno 106, Realistic MG-1, Crumar Bit 01, Korg MS-10, Korg MS20, Roland TR-707, Roland TR-747…

Samplers. Kurzweil K2000S, Ensoniq Mirage sampler, Emu Emax II,  Oberheim DPX-1 sample player ( tons of Eii, Ensoniq, and other sound disks ).

There’s more available upon request!

Recording Hardware. For recording we currently have 18 I/O via firewire 44k-96k compatible!  This will soon to be expanded 32 channels via thunderbolt.

It’s set up to “plug in your laptop and ROCK!”
