Music Tech Pioneers IV : Marcus Ryle : 4 Decades of Music Tech Innovation !

Hosted by Vin Curigliano of AAVIM Technology, I am joined by guest co-host Pete Brown of Microsoft and special guest Marcus Ryle , whose career spans over 4 decades on the front line of Music Tech Innovation.

We discuss Marcus' early history with music and technology , and how that lead a path to starting his career at Oberheim.

We cover his involvement in the development of  some of the final iconic products at Oberheim, including the OB-Xa, Expander and Matrix 12. We discuss the fall of the company and his co-founding of Fast Forward Designs, which was a design and engineering company that was involved in the development of numerous revolutionary products and technologies for several companies, including the Alesis ADAT.

We also cover his co-founding of Line 6 and how those products launched the modeled guitar amp era, and revolutionized the paradigm of guitar production and live performance. We discuss Marcus' new company WRiiG and his involvement with the return and revival of both Sequential and Oberheim, how he has come full circle with the development of the new Oberheim OB-X8, and much, much more.
