We just talking keyboards? Last keyboard purchase was a Kronos 61 a few years ago when they first came out,

My most recent music related purchase was a Radial ProD2 and a Boss tuner pedal.....for gigs subbing in on keys and guitar so I don't have to drag out my rack.

Had some Amazon gift cards burning a hole in my virtual wallet so I picked up a Volca Beats last week. Fun little thing for what it is.

A Korg Volca Bass. The sound is nice but the limited number of pattern saves and swing makes it useless for me as a stand alone. If I had it to do again I would not buy it.

I am waiting patiently for the Roland JD-Xi and the Akai Advance 61 controller, both rolled out at the NAMM show and both due this spring.

Picked up a quick release adaptor for my Rode mic clip, because I was tired of them getting damaged, at $15+ per clip:



Now I don't know how I ever did without it.

It's been a little bit of Christmas in March this year. In the past few weeks:

- New laptop for the studio: Lenovo ThinkPad W540
- New iPad Air 2 64GB for music and other stuff
- New Roland RD-800 for the studio

I have to go practice now.

I got some gaffer tape. A couple 1/4" connectors.

A 6ft mic cable. Some cleaner for my in-ear monitors.

Some mixer board tape to mark my two FC7s.

Finally, the Ashby FC7 adapter for use with my FA-08 (once I get the replacement)

A faulty sustain pedal which I need to return tomorrow.

Will likely pick up a few velcro coils or something similar to make my own mini-snake too. Ever since throwing the MG06 into my rig the area behind my setup has turned into spaghetti junction.

Will also get one of these within the next week or so. Borrowed our old bassist's for a set just to try it out and I loved it. It's for guitars, but sits at the perfect height for me.



EDIT: Also getting a free Roland XP80 this week from my wife's old boss. Happy days.

No I bought a Chauvet. But it does not put out as massive bubble output as my old one. My avatar is a product of my old bubble machine Cool but it makes a mess.

Thanks for asking. Once I settled the Mac/PC thing, the decision itself was pretty easy.

As with any computer, integrating took a little bit of work, but it all works great now. It's got a 4-core i7 and a 7200RPM hard drive (no SSD yet - maybe in the coming months), so it handles everything very well. The old laptop really coughed and sputtered with VSTs and ASIO drivers, so this is a real pleasure. I use a Steinberg UR22 interface, and it all sounds great. I'm very happy with the choice.

I think I mentioned this before, but my priorities were speed, I/O and screen size. It never leaves the studio, so weight and portability are not a concern. Being in the "workstation replacement" category of laptops, it relatively large compared to the newer stuff, but I like the 15" display. I also drive a 22" external monitor to extend the work area.

I got an employee discount on it, but I wouldn't call it the deal of a lifetime. It was less expensive than a lower spec'd more portable laptop. I plan to use it a pretty long time (like I did with the last one), so the cost over the long haul will be justified.


I forgot to mention that I also got a ZOOM R16 as a Christmas gift. It's a great tool for recording the live band rehearsals and performances.

Scott, I might have to jump on your train. I've always dug your Stitch bubble machine. If I find one, I'm gonna buy it. I'll let you know if I do.
