Check out this interview with keyboardist and sound designer, Scott Plunkett.
Behind the Synth showcases the people bringing you Yamaha synthesizers. We featured Scott in the pre-podcast version of Behind this Synth
a few years ago. In this episode, Blake circles back with Scott Plunkett. Scott has performed with Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, Boz Scaggs and Chris Issak to name a few. He's also a longtime Yamaha sound designer, starting with the DX7II.
“I think it’s impossible for people who weren’t around then to understand what a big deal the DX7 was. Here was this instrument that cost half as much as these other synthesizers with 16 notes of polyphony and was velocity sensitive. It was a no-brainer: you just had to have one.”
Scott has created content for the SY77/99/85, VL1, EX5, the entire MOTIF Series, S80, S90, S90ES and MONTAGE. MONTAGE and MOTIF fans will recognize Scott's work in the Bösendorfer and Chick's Mark V libraries. Check out the chat below:
