    Synths and sequences

    The Roland System 100 is often said to be the last great synth with the last great pair of oscillators. Hand made only a few units were sold so they're incredibly hard to come by. This particular unit was gifted to Martyn by Vince Clarke in return for services rendered producing an Erasure album. It plays host to Martyn's staggering programming prowess and allows us to revisit all those great Human League and Heaven 17 sounds. Alongside, synths, leads, pops, and basses are some great sequences which are worth the price of admission alone!

    Classic custom sounds

    Here we enjoy hearing how Martyn's techniques evolved alongside growing feature-sets of later incarnations of Roland keyboards. An anthology of classic custom sounds made by the master!

    Drums and Curios

    Martyn has also plumbed his old faithful for some great drum sounds and curiosities. The Korg 700 has a sound all of it's very own and casts our mind back to the dawning of a new age for pop in the UK.

    Morphing Department

    The Spitfire Morphing department

    In addition to these wonderful "originals" from Martyn the award winning Spitfire team has been at it again morphing and mangling the sounds to create haunting, biting and enormous new creations inspired by Martyn's work. Giving you a truly inspiring and comprehensive set of synthesizer tools.
