Today I updated my studio with the inexpensive yet feature rich MOTU Audio Express interface. I haven’t had time to put it through its paces yet, but I did manage to get it configured in time to use it for the synthesizer sound of the day. Creating this sound would have been more difficult prior to owning this interface because I did not have as many available inputs with my M-Audio Firewire 410. To create this sound I stacked two polysynths – the Roland D-50 and the Roland MKS-80. With the Audio Express I was able to plug in both instruments in stereo and play them simultaneously using the D-50 as the controller, then record them on separate tracks. Here’s the first out of a series of these stacked polysynth experiments.
