Freeform discussion of electronic music and the techniques and gear used in making it
How about you? :)I got an Akai LPK25 laptop keyboard that I can always have around me. It's a really nice toy, thicker than the Korg nanopad but easier to play and it doesn't break apart that soon (they say).. And it's cute :)
I got the new Yamaha Multi-pad 12. Spent the weekend making up pre-sets for various songs and sampling things from my old SPD-11 that I thought I might need. So far I really like it.
I got the Pod X3 floor. It's so sweet. I actually feel compelled to touch my guitar again. There are some excellent emulations and some very nice effects including some mono pitch tracking synth sounds that are actually very usuable.I also got 4GB of RAM for my MacPro. That the thing I really needed!!-Tom N
Nice! No music toys for me (never ask for them because they're too easy for someone who doesn't know about them to screw up..haha), but I did get one of those nifty Flip video cameras which will be fun to have on tour. The picture quality is surprisingly good for something so inexpensive.
I got myself a Tascam DP-004 4 track recorder, because it was cheap and handy. Wanted a break from software recording.
I gave myself an early Christmas present of converting one of my little used guitars into a MIDI guitar (by installing a Graptech Ghost Floyd Rose bridge). My brother suprised me by getting me a subsonic filter board (from rmcpickups.com) for my VG-99 which *dramatically* improves the Ghost systems interaction with the VG. I've been playing several hours a night since I've gotten both :)...If you happen to hear endless (bad) Andy Summers "Secret Journey" GR-300 type washes- that's me!
