The folks at Antfood readily admit to having an obsession with synthesizers. Some of our synthesizers are new, some are vintage, some are homemade, and some haven’t worked since the late nineties.
Dave Smith Instruments makes some of our favorite new synths on the market. The Prophet 08 and the Poly-Evolver are two of the most powerful analog poly-synths ever made and we think the Tempest is the greatest drum machine since the 808 and the MPC3000. In fact, the Tempest combines features of both these iconic instruments and adds a whole host of additional features! We used the Poly-evolver to make lush, complex pads and rich bass tones in our recent tracks for Morgan Stanley and UNDP, and we used the Tempest to customize new sounds for an interactive installation for Nike that was featured at the track & field Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon.
As you can tell, we are excited about the synths that Dave Smith is producing, which is why we are thrilled to announce that Antfood is now officially a Dave Smith Instruments sponsored artist! Keep an eye out for new tracks that feature one or more of Dave Smith’s amazing analog synthesizers.
