Berna Vintage Electronic Studio

Berna vintage electronic studio from Tobor Experiment on Vimeo.

A full room of oscillators and vintage tape machines on your Mac for less than $20. My favorite example of electronic music from the early days is the soundtrack to the movie Forbidden Planet (Amazon link).

“Between the 1950s and the mid 1960s, long before Robert Moog and Wendy Carlos injected electronics into pop-music (with a few exceptions like the Barrons and Raymond Scott), electroacoustic music was pioneered by european radio laboratories and US universities. Composing with tapes and electronics was a serious painstaking and expensive affair, prerogative of a restricted elite of contemporary music composers and adventurous sound engineers…. Berna is a software simulation of a late 1950s electroacoustic music studio. Oscillators, filters, modulators, tape recorders, mixers, are all packed in a easy-to-use interface with historical accuracy.” –

  1. that looks wonderful. i think i’m going to have to get it.


  2. so, a little disappointed. i decided to purchase it but am not able to use it. for some reason the program will not give me any options for an audio destination. it recognizes my soundcard as an input but not as an output. very strange. i emailed the maker, but he has yet to reply :(
