Scored an Ensoniq VFX-SD for $180. Quite a warm sound for a digital synth, not to mention some of the most gorgeous pads I've ever heard.

Also awaiting the arrival of a Keylab 88 for controlling Mainstage. Wanted something with a good variety of controls and better build quality than the M-Audio stuff.

i kind of went on a gear binge in the last 3 weeks, I got a Yamaha MG06 mixer, a Kurzweil case that fitted my M3-76 quite nicely and to top it all off, i managed to score a NOS Kurzweil PC361 for $500. next week im going to order some parts too, minor things but this week i just realized that all of my keyboards need some TLC

Just got a dbx go-Rack, a slimmed down version of DriveRack, for $39 new, through the Proaudiostar app special. I'm anxious to try it with my Spacestation. It comes with simplified compression, EQ, feedback eliminator, and sub synth.

That's so cool. Good luck with it! I wish my work involved more organ playing. I miss it.

Something quite different for me, a Novation Launchpad Pro. Just getting into Ableton Live and the Launchpad gives it another dimension. EDM music at nearly 60 years old? Why not...

I picked up a pair of EV ELX112P speakers with covers about a month ago. Enjoying the better bottom end than the Eon 610's I had before this. They are heavier but actually make my loading easier as they are not rounded off and things can stack on them on the hand cart and in the van.

Zoom H4N recorder. $200, plop it on a mic stand, and record an entire rehearsal with decent quality. Also adequate for promo audio for your (low-budget) bar band.

I use mine to squelch feedback on vocal monitors. Works pretty well.

Must be GAS day for me. Just pulled the trigger on a pair of the new QSC K8.2 self-powered PA units. Not many sellers wanted to offer a discount, but a few were. Should be here in a few days, I'll post a review if anyone is interested.

I only have feedback problems when I hand my mic to someone to make an announcement, so I'm looking forward to it helping in that department.

Have you used it to shape the Spacestation more to your liking? I'm thinking that one of those EQ settings, or maybe the subsynth, will help with the "bottom end" of the Spacestation.

I should have paid closer attention to the connectors, though. Since it doesn't have the combo XLR jacks for output I'm going to have to construct two XLR (female) to 1/4" jack (female) conversion cables in order to use it with my Spacestation.

Found a single owned Triton extreme 76 south of me. They've become too far and too few so I had to get it.
To save on shipping we met half way so I took a 65 mile drive to pick it up. He gave me $100 off for not
having to deal with packing. haven't hooked it up or played it yet, but it looks pristine, little to no blemishes
and the end blocks look well intact. Also bought a shock case for my instrument PC, only $139 for an
ECS 7506 that costs around $1500 new.

No, I haven't tried the goRack with the Spacestation for EQ shaping, mostly because I do all of my EQ-ing from my Nords. It's sufficient for most situations.

Keep in mind that the EQ curves are presets, no adjustment possible. Maybe you'll get lucky. Even with a bunch of bass EQ, an 8" speaker is still an 8" speaker smile

If you need a special cable, Sweetwater has a nice selection if you don't want the bother. I have a short pair of XLR females to 1/4" for feeding from my sub.

Just received a pair of Alto TS212's. For the money, they really sound good to my ears. My boards (especially my Motif XS6) sound crystal clear through these.

I'm thinking it might come from sitting them on the end block when leaning them against anything like a wall.
The seller said he thinks it comes form dryness.

Yeah, I may end up just using it for my voice. I mainly grabbed it because it was $40, and my TC Electronics VoiceLive Touch 2 doesn't have compression or anti-feedback, which the goRack does.

No, its pretty much a design flaw, the design is very flimsy with no extra support or bracing, and the plastic is too thin and brittle, avoid putting it on its sides and if you feel comfortable with it reinforce the inner stress points with some epoxy or hot glue.

If you dont mind me asking how much did you got it for? mine completely died on me about a month ago after 13 years of hard work (not a single board is salvageable) along with 72 MB of Ram And the MOSS board so im looking for the most beat up worn down cosmetically TEX that i can get that works, so im wondering whats the ballpark

It ended up being $1200, he was selling the MOSS board for it as well, but since I'm running VI's,
I didn't go for it. Maybe reinforce the end blocks with some fiber and resin or just class it up with
a couple of wood blocks. Take some design and mill work though, seller said component or PCB is
attached, so would have to fit in something to make it work

I recently noticed that the only thing I am using my MX-8 for is to merge two controller keyboards to go into a PC-3. So I bought this puppy.

The mio can serve as a thru, merge, filter, channelizer, and dual simultaneous computer interface. Since I really just wanted a merge appliance, it's nice that you can configure it once with the computer, and then it just remembers its setup, no computer necessary. It took perhaps three minutes to set it up.

Sorry for the wide pair of pictures. In real life, the unit is tiny. And it costs less than anything else I could find.

Got to get off my four-board gig rig dependence since I'm also hauling the PA, now. I love my current live sound though; especially the perfectly tweaked Kawai tone. But I don't practice on weighted keys and I'm struggling to hit those ultra-fast piano solos like I used to (see how easy it is to rationalize the G.A.S. with self-degradation?), so I'm on the waiting list for Studiologic's Numa Compact 2. Hoping to to consolidate the rig to just the Numa, VR09, and Lucina (only because the regular crowd now expects the keytar solo on a few tunes). I think the toughest thing to cover with with the smaller rig is that awesome bari-sax based horn section on the Fantom. Does anyone know if Roland's iOS Sound Canvas has fat hornz like that? Gonna nose around in iM1, too.
