Circle Research Studio Tour w/ Dual Akai MPC 3000′s

January 22, 2009

Producers Astro and Nik T of Circle Research take us deep inside their ultra secret Toronto studio for an in depth tour.  Some of their prized equipment consists of a Minimoog, Fender Rhodes, 2 Akai MPC 3000′s, organ, tape echo machine, talk box, distortion, and rotating speakers that you wish you owned.

Head over to Circle Research for more info.

Ive never seen so much dope equipment presented so boringly!!!! wow, dope images but snooze central.

yea that room is dope! I would love to spend a day in there…

forgive the hate, but would like to ask mom and dad how big a dent all that gear put in the trust fund? pretty boring beats, too, given all that equipment – and none of it plugged in! so many classic albums have been made with so much less. lame.

Do you really think it’s reasonable to attack someone for having a nice collection of gear?

I agree with Spank. So Much dope equipment there but so boringly introduced. Plug the stuff up let us hear some sounds.

I loved the video. CR – Don’t listen to the hate.

Thanks for posting Semantik

Thanks for posting Semantik. And thanks to everyone who watched the video.

yall must be out of your minds. I’ve just heard CR for the first time. Their music is so fresh that i still keep bumpin their album snippet.

I think the 5000 is going to be huge.. I stumbled upon this video of Quik making a beat on the 5000.. that machine got fire


spinstylz February 10, 2009 at 7:29 pm

looks like they need to upgrade to that 5000

i like the 5000. It has some dope sounds that aren’t offered on the other versions!

opposite experts of this sector don’t understand this.
