Say YES to GAS ...

Cloning my rigs for the two bands I play in.

Rig one: Nord Piano 2, Nord Electro 4D, SSv3. All good.

Rig two: Nord Stage 2, Behringer Deepmind 2, RCF TT08-a.

Pulled the trigger on all the missing pieces: cables, pedals, throne, amps, mixer, etc.

I'm cloning myself. Two standalone rigs, no sharing smile

Well, actually three rigs, because I have my summer gig stuff.

The Nord is fantastic though - apart from being a great user friendly board with some great sounds, it weighs only 25lbs/11.4kg, plus, I'm thinking of ordering an SKB case like this: http://www.skbcases.com/music/products/proddetail.php?id=98&c=88
It weighs only about a pound more than the Red soft case that Nord make.


Dave - How do you like the action on the 5HP 73 for playing piano?

A used Motif XF7. After 21 years of service it will replace my roland XP-80 in a 2 keyboard rig.

My Roland Aerophone came in Friday. Never had a chance to do much with it this weekend. Sounds better than I expected. Will take me a while to remember sax fingering.

a pair of Alto Truesonic TS210s. 10's, 22lbs, and two side handles. Not the best sound I've heard by far, but they seem ok for stage monitors.
I needed something light and inexpensive.

I didn't need anymore gear but touring with a Midi OB-Xa in the 80's, and being a huge oberheim fan, I couldn't resist when the OB-6 came out.
Pairs wonderfully with my Voyager.

MOTU Micro Lite.

My stupid Yamaha CP300 (my controller) disables its MIDI 5 pin out when its USB port is active and connected to a computer.

I use the CP300's USB to run to Mainstage's soft synths / plug ins. In this config, the CP300 no longer transmits MIDI 5 pin out to my external synths (which were set up hunky dory as performances).

Solved with the MOTU. I guess I'm now in the 20th century MIDI-wise.

I recently picked up a pair of KRK KNS 8400 headphones. They are awesome... They're light, they exposed a critical weakness in my prior mixes (250 Hz to 400 Hz), and my mixes have gotten much better as a result. They are only $150. They recommend you burn them in, so I hooked mine up to an iPod for two weeks straight.

I also picked up a PreSonus Faderport (the single fader version). That's a great piece as well, but I wish it had two pan pots (Cubase uses two for stereo channels).

Finally, I just bought UAD's AKG BX20 spring reverb plugin. It's a bit hungry on resources, but it sounds great. It gives drums and other sounds a great depth, without clouding up the mix. It's quite different from my EMT140 and Lexicon 224 plugins. Highly recommended...

I've been unable to sell my VR-700 (was hoping then to pick up an electro 5) so I'm reconciled to my current rig being "done"...for a while at least.

So I bought a guitar smile G&L tribute asat classic (natural wood model with alnico pickups)...the Stupid Deal of the Day at Musician's Friend had it at $299 (normally $499). I couldn't pass it up, especially since I haven't "bonded" with my current electric and am going to attempt to sell it.

@ mkeys CP4 is an excellent piece of kit. Plenty of threads about amplification recently on this forum.

@ Ironclast drool cheers

Love to hear how people are indulging in their own musical world. All good.

That being said, I'd encourage y'all to spend on killer amplification. Completely floats my boat. Even mediocre gear can sound AWESOME with serious amplification.
