I'm just getting started with Ravenscroft, but I'm amazed that an iOS piano could sound this good. Better than my CP4? Hard to say - these things are matters of personal preference. They're different - but very close. There are a lot of tweaking possibilities -- with time, I might be able to find a setting that equals or beats the CP4 (CFX). I think the CP4 gives you more variety, with the three different sample sets.

I know that -- before long -- I'll show up to a gig with a few MIDI controllers and my iPhone XIII -- and I'll blow the place away.

It's just a matter of time, really.

Just gotta remember to charge the suckah before the gig. And turn off the phone stuff smile

A few years after that, a VR interface so I don't even need the MIDI controllers.

The Ventilator II and the Key Largo arrived today. All good. Next up? A Nord Stage 3 Compact. I'll let y'all know how it goes.

But I'm done with amplification. Well, maybe not so much ...

This thread went to page 7, until I revived it wink
Surprised at you guys, I can't usually bump this topic, maybe 4 times per decade.

Anyway, exciting changes here, the new stuff on the way:

Steinberg UR44

Roland FA-07

big thank you to Dave ( escapeRocks) for his expert advice

Nord Stage 3 Compact on its way. Finally found one at the right price. My legacy Nord Electro 4D is going to be up for sale before long.

Congrats Chuck. Will anxiously await your opinions. It seemed to me that they released this one a bit early; the number and nature of bugs seems a bit excessive. Interestingly, Pablo from North American support indicated on the Nord forum that he thinks this product release has been the bumpiest.

But I'm sure they will address the bugs. My bigger concern is the change in the MIDI implementation (can't address each of six parts with separate MIDI channel...hopefully this will be fixed.) My use case would prevent an upgrade unless this is re-implemented.

The software revisions for the Nord Stage 3 seem to be coming out at a steady, almost frantic, cadence. The MIDI addressing isn't a big thing for me (today) and I'm sure they'll fix it.

Just picked up a Korg Kross off eBay for my new covers band - something affordable and light that'll still let me do lots of complicated splits and layers.

UPS dropped this on my porch yesterday.

I caved in to Black Friday and got the SoundToys 5 bundle. I've really been feeling the lack of "creative" FX in my studio lately, hopefully this will rectify it!

That's a nice piece of wood, MMM.

I just picked up Arturia Mini V and Prophet V on their half-off sale. For nostalgia sake, and to see if I still remember how to program them. Stayed up way too long playing with them last night.

Just in time before the promotional discount presumably ended, got approval from the spousal unit, arrived today:



I haven't played a fully weighted keyboard in years; already got some tennis elbow, so I gotta go slow. Where did I put those Hanon Studies from the 1970s?

Well, since I see Mighty Motif Max went there, I will, too. This was actually about a month ago, but my last musical purchase:



Takamine Jasmine cutaway acoustic and a Fender MIM HSS Strat....both used at Music Go Round. $299 for the acoustic (included case) and $399 for the strat. They threw in a case for the Strat for free since I bought both. My only guitar before this was my Epiphone Explorer. I've enjoyed having the Acoustic sit around since I can just pick it up and play anytime without dragging out gear and plugging in.

Well, the Nord Stage 3 Compact showed up today. Lots of bitching and moaning on the Nord forum about various minor things, all fixable in software.

I'm looking forward to sharing a full review from the POV of a weekend warrior. Cheers!

Congrats on the new Nord. Have fun Chuck!

I bought Logic Pro X. After working with Garageband for a few months, I made the switch. Mainly because Garageband wasn't able to send midi out. If that function was there, I could survived a bit more.

Ah well, really like it and have a ton to learn!

Starting to teach in there tomorrow. Hopefully start recording in there soon as well. Put up a little video on FB/Insta last night, but I'll eventually post more here.

Not a space I'll keep for life, but probably 2-3 years. WOO! keys
