The Fairlight CMI (Computer Musical Instrument), invented by Australians Kim Ryrie and Peter Vogel in 1979, revolutionized music production. Pioneering sampling technology, it garnered popularity in the '80s. Jan Hammer's iconic "Miami Vice Theme," Nick Rhodes' use in Duran Duran hits, Peter Gabriel's groundbreaking "So" album, and Trevor Horn's productions at ZTT Records, including Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Relax," showcased its versatility. The Fairlight's digital sampling and synthesis capabilities influenced diverse genres. Despite technological advancements, its impact on artists and the music industry remains profound, symbolizing an era of sonic innovation and shaping the sound of the '80s.
