Fairlight CMI and CVI playlist | Rare footage of the classic sampler and video instrument

This is a playlist that features two historic pieces of gear by Fairlight (Pete Vogel) The first being the well known Fairlight CMI which was the first digital audio sampler, but I have also included the lesser known CVI (computer video instrument) which was an analog video fx unit that made some incredibly cool video fx. These are pretty hard to come by these days, but there’s several good vids on youtube with them.

Also there’s a Fairlight CMI app now available on iOS, so if you have an iPad you should look into that. I’m still waiting for the Android or Windows version :p

Enjoy!
