Welcome to SOUND ON SOUND magazine's recording and production forums, described by some as "an oasis of rationality".

To celebrate my landmark 14,000th post here on the SOS Forums, here's an inspirational and in my opinion very beautiful sequencer creation by talented designer Lola Gielen.
"After years of fruitless effort to become a musician, I almost gave up. But then I decided instead of trying to master an instrument, I would make an instrument that needed neither years of practice nor any talent to play.
Neo's base is a circular matrix. On the rows of Neo’s base you can put down marbles and the Neo loops over them as pins on a barrel organ. Next to the base there is a collection of external sensory modules that influence the sound, the speed of the loop or make their own sounds.
For Neo you don't need rhythm, perfect pitch or years of practice, Just play."
The proof of the pudding as they say...
