We had a post from one of the Fairlight Fathers, Peter Vogel.
He’d like to let people know that Fairlight Instruments is back in business
At this stage they are producing CMIs but will also be getting into the video side of things, so keep posted at
He’s also keen to get a better quality version of their original demo video. We’ve seen copies for sale on eBay over the years but have never managed to get our hands on one. If you have a copy, I’m sure Peter would really appreciate getting a copy of your copy
3 of our fairlight CVI clips have been used in “The Rig”
