The Akai MPC series - Music Production Center - designed by Roger Linn (he who made the very first drum machine in 1979), has nothing to do with the APCv2, custom designed and built by Ezra Lockett in December 2013. The 'Atari Punk Console' a synthesizer which uses two square wave oscillators and a light theremin, built entirely from recycled electronic components from smashed up radios and hi-fi gear from our local dechetterie (dump). Even the dials are hand-made, and the box used to contain something fabriqué en Chine. Perhaps this entry should have pride of place in the post-materialism blog too. Best Christmas present ever!!
