The Psychedelic Furs helped define the 1980s sound, now the band's keyboard player Roger O'Donnell is moving to use Macs to explore the sound of the 'noughties.

O'Donnell, who has also played with The Thompson Twins and The Cure, recently turned to Apple technologies to get himself connected with music creation once again, an Apple report explains.

The musician has just released his first solo work The Truth In Me, which was recorded, mixed and mastered on Macs using Logic Pro.

"When I left The Cure, the way I had written and recorded music in the past seemed to just flood back,", he says. "And The Truth in Me came to me incredibly fast, through that unblocked creative channel."

He admits that the one thing he couldn't give up in his music creation is the Mac - he's used Macs since the IIGS model, which was released in 1986.

The artist admits to using Apple's other applications also, but has been using Logic Pro for "about two years", the report explains.

"Logic is my recording studio. Everything I create musically goes straight into Logic. I'm even thinking of doing away with the console and getting rid of my mixing desks and just using my Mac."
