Working on custom sample library for Quadrophenia Tour

Written by Jason Atkinson

I've been working more with Frank Simes, Musical Director for The Who's upcoming Quadrophenia Tour, which starts early next year. Frank wanted some custom brass samples for the show for various songs. The samples will have to be edited, transposed to 2 additional keys, and imported into a Kurzweil PC3K8 keyboard, that has storage for up to 128MB of user samples. Once the samples are loaded into the PC3K8, they'll all have to be programmed into keymaps, patches, and setups (which are a 16 part multi). It will be a fair amount of work, and programming the Kurzweil PC3K8 takes some getting used to, but it will all work great for the tour.
