In regards to funding the new Fairlight to get off the ground and out there on the market, Would it be a possible to approach the original Fairlight users
Such as Peter Gabriel for instance?
Peter now owns a substantial slice of Solid State logic, and has been working closely with designers to launch a variety of smaller products and expand the brand name.
I know that the concept of more affordable product lines has already popped up on this forum, but the big time inverters will probably want to cover that way of thinking as well.
Perhaps seeking funding from larger keyboard companies such as Roland or Yamaha?
I'm sure if his Lordship put it nicely and had all the costings sorted as well as the final product mapped out and ready for production, the old boys and girls of the early Fairlight brigade would invest.
The main problem is actually having a finalised beast to invest in.
It's a lot of fun putting ideas in for a future beast to arise, but I fear no major investor will contribute until the speculation is over and the final plans for the unit are on the table and ready for the production line.
