Synth Lead Slap TonePrint by Adam Holzman

Maybe you are familiar with Keith Emerson’s synth solo on ELP’s "Lucky Man" (the first rock synthesizer solo in history), Tony Banks’ synth solo on Genesis’ “The Cinema Show” or Rick Wright’s solo on part VI of Pink Floyd’s “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” (If not, you should really go and check them out). Then you will probably also be familiar with the praxis of adding a slap-back delay to lead sounds. If a quest to find a tailor-made slap-back synth lead delay brought you here - well, look no further.

We sat down with Adam Holzman in late 2013, when he was playing a gig with Steven Wilson at Train in Aarhus. He has the distinct honor of being the very first keyboard TonePrint artist. He ended up creating no less than five TonePrints to get the ball rolling for this new segment. Whether you enjoy playing classic Grand Piano, Rhodes, Pads or Synth Lead, you can now find a perfect TonePrint to go with it.
