IMPOSSIBLE FAST ZTAR!
Les Fradkin, the virtuoso of MIDI Guitar, presents "Warp Drive" from his "One Link Between Them" CD featuring his revolutionary new instrument- The Starr Labs Ztar!
Robert Fripp once remarked in Guitar Player Magazine: "There is a new music to go with this new instrument. Therein lies my interest in the guitar synthesizer. That something entirely new will appear." This COULD be it! Come have a look and listen to the MIDI Guitar sound of the future.
This album has received wide acclaim in publications such as Keyboard Magazine and across the Internet.
Les, who is classically trained, is moving at Hyper speed. In this video, he's playing the Starr Labs Ztar MIDI Guitar in a Jean Michel Jarre meets Yngwie Malmsteen, Bach and Vivaldi influenced style on his own composition.
The Ztar can be strummed with string triggers or tapped with one or both hands as seen in this video.
Background sounds are being triggered from Ableton Live using clip launches and "follow actions".
The main lead sound is the Arturia Moog Modular V and the Logic ES2. Background sounds are from Reason 4, GForce M-Tron, Roland XV-5080 and Arturia Soft Synths. The sounds at the intro are made with Propellerhead Reason.
Take a Journey To The Stars!
