Including Roland’s SP-555 sampler and a ’90s Technics synth.
Lopatin is parting with a number of unusual and sentimental items from his collection in order to help him build a “new, more permanent studio space”. Items include a Roland SP-555 sampler used on his 2011 album Replica (complete with memory card and samples from the same tour) and a Roland SP-404 sampler used on 2009’s Zones Without People. According to Lopatin, the SP-404 was a touring item that saw “a lot of basement floors and backs of vans” in the 2000s.
Other gear up for grabs includes a Technics SX-WSA1 analog modelling synthesizer Lopatin refers to as a “unicorn”, an Alesis ION Synthesizer used on Commissions I and II and a Focal Solo 6 Be Monitoring System used to record everything from 2013’s R Plus Seven onwards. Lopatin is also parting with a Waldorf Microwave XT Synthesizer and Korg Kronos X Music Workstation used on 2015’s Garden of Delete and 2017’s Good Time score.
