Building a Fairlight CMI: Episode 0

video by Syntaur

"Cris Blyth is a brave man. He has a dream of taking a Fairlight MFX and upgrading it to a Fairlight CMI Series III. He's not worried that these machines are tremendously complex, quite rare, have not been made since the 1980s, and cost huge amounts of money back then. He's not worried that the few existing experts on Fairlights strongly recommended that he not attempt this. Will he make mistakes? Absolutely. Will he succeed? We're not sure. But either way, it will be a fun journey."

Building a Fairlight CMI: Episodes


  1. Lots of teenage Arab princes have rammed their $3M supercars into light poles, virtually cutting them in two, and it barely rates a mention in the society pages anymore as they walk away to beg poppa for another one. If a man wants to throw his Fairlight from a roof, it's his to throw, historical attrocity however it may be.

  2. Just remember, it's all fun and games until someone loses a CMI.
