Synclavier

On April 28th, 2010, I contacted the VP of post-production Linda McAteer of Post Modern Sound -- Vancouver's best and one of the west-coast's highest end pro-audio post production facilities. She was very kind in granting me permission to take photos of one of their Synclavier 9600 system.When Linda replied to my email, she stated:Ah, the Synclaviers….While we still have several in the building, we haven’t used them in many years. Several years ago we converted all of the Synclav library files to make them compatible with Protools. That marked the end of the Synclavs being used. I guess it was primarily driven by the change in our editors’ work patterns. With Protools systems being so affordable, all of our editors acquired their own systems and many chose to cut at least part-time at home. As a result, they haven’t been motivated to keep the Synclavs in their workflow.There are sound designers in town who were Synclav devotees. At this point, however, they would probably speak of them with nostalgiaOn April 30th, 2010, I went to Post Modern Sound and took photos of one of the facility's Syclavier 9600 system. I'm also very thankful to Mark Scott (Senior Vice President, Director of Operations) who spent almost an hour with me, telling me everything about the Synclavier. He informed me that each Synclavier 9600 system at Post Modern Sound had cost around $250K (albeit from Synclavs out there were more than $500K) .... and that the facility had 14 of them since 1987. At that time, the only 2 facilities in the world which had that many Syclavier systems were Post Modern Sound and Skywalker Ranch (George Lucas). You do the math!----------The Synclavier System was an early synthesizer and sampler, manufactured by New England Digital. First released in 1975, it proved to be highly influential among both music producers and electronic musicians, due to its versatility, its cutting-edge technology and distinctive sound.By the mid-1980s, the Polyphonic Sampling option added to the sound capabilities. Like the FM boards, this option was available in different numbers of voices, and different amounts of memory.In the late 1980s, the company introduced configurations of the basic electronics, the V-P keyboard, the polyphonic sampling voices, and large disk storage to create different systems that were focused on movie production, on sound effects, on studio recording, and on live performance. These realized the concept of the tapeless studio, and were marketed as the Synclavier 3200, 6400, and 9600 models.New England Digital went out of business in 1991, and the Synclavier is no longer manufactured. It is, however, still in use in the recording industry, particularly among soundtrack composers and sound designers.

The rack on the right is very very very damn heavy. It took a lot of strength to turn it around. My guess is that it weighs between 600-700 pounds.The construction and build-quality is bar-none. Never in my life have I ever come upon build-quality like this. Top-notch to the Nth degree. The keyboard is also heavy. It's frame, keys, big round knob and all the buttons are the finest engineering & craftsmanship in the world. The Synclavier is built-to-last a lifetime. Amazingly this system still works! It's a turn-key system with one power-switch.

For 1987/87, this system is a direct-to-disk. The first system to record directly to hard-drives. All sound could be edited like modern digital audio systems today, but for back then this was revolutionary. In 1987, 350MB hard drive had a cost between $10K to $35K. This system was scalable, thus it could have a second or more racks of hard drives expanded to it.
