Zebratron started with my recently revived fascination for the ethereal sounds of magnetic tape-based keyboards and other eccentric instruments of the late '60s and '70s. I tried to recreate some of that magic in Zebra by simulating what were considered flaws at the time: tape wow, BBD colouration, lop-sided vibrato and various other pitch anomalies, recorded room ambience etc.. Then I adjusted the laws and limits of the realtime controls (see the box below) to optimise the playing experience... so enjoy.
About me: I have been obsessed with synthesizers ever since I co-founded the UK's first all-synth band ZORCH in 1973. My first synth was an EMS Synthi AKS and my current favourite is Zebra2. You can hear many of my synth sounds in the musical scores to such movies as The Dark Knight, Angels & Demons, Inception, Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049.
