Thanks. I remember looking into this in the past for another application, and then forgot about it. It looks like you can connect up to 8 USB devices - interesting. And I can hook it up two computers. Definitely on my list to investigate further.

It will be next to impossible to find this in Brazil, but that's another problem. laugh


Also check out iConnectivity mio10. 10 MIDI Din ports plus ability to connect 10 USB devices. Same restriction as MIDI4+, it can only hold one configuration at a time.

I have a special wish: that somebody announce a new synthesizer that it is not a re-edition of a 70s or 80s machine, and that actually try to introduce a new sound space and new (wrt the market) synthesis paradigm.

Not true. Two examples: Soundcraft Signature 12 MTK (14 x 12 USB) and Zoom L-12 (14 x 4 USB)


Thanks for that correction, never heard of the Zoom and think I eliminated the Soundcraft when looking a while ago for being bigger and more expensive than I wanted and settled for the A&H. But just looking it up I'm seeing some at $350 now and I need another mixer, so maybe I'll dedicate the A&H for live and put a Soundcraft in the studio.

But I'll still correct my wishlist #2 to: More 8-10ch. compact mixers with rotary faders and 4x4 or more usb.


There's also the Keith McMillen K-Mix - thus completing the trio that I'm currently considering for a mixer upgrade. It has the smallest form factor of the three, and least vulnerable to accidental beer spills and the like. OTOH, some configuration can only be done with the desktop software, like pre- vs. post-fader input settings.

The Soundcraft is actually the least costly of the three, but inputs are pre-fader only (not a concern for me, but turnoff for some others), and it's the biggest.

More competition to consider would be welcome for me too.

2.)
John Bowen Solaris rack (like discussed HERE ... 3)

3.)
Roland Integra-7 mkII w/ more Studio-Set memory and more slots for the SRX expansions so one can load more than 4 of the virtual cards.

Agreed... I remember years ago I thought about picking up the PC2R. Have been in the lookout for a follow up since then.

Ditto, got close to getting one, a store here in Brazil had an excellent price on them, sold out while I was deciding.

Same thing I ask for every year:
76 key MIDI controller with velocity sensitivity, release sensitivity, polyphonic aftertouch with a key feel like a Novation X-station, multiple knobs and at least 9 sliders, ribbon controller like a Yamaha CS-60/80, pitch and mod wheels, something like the Nord pitch stick, multiple MIDI connections, USB, and soft synth auto-mapping function that weighs under 35 lbs and costs under $700. A used Roland A50 is the closest thing to this.

A used Roland A50 is the closest thing to this.

A used Generalmusic S3 Turbo is even closer, and goes for around $300-400, assuming you can find one. 76 keys (E-G) with excellent (high-end Fatar keyboard) feel, Velocity, Release Velocity, PolyAT, 8 assignable sliders, multiple buttons, pitch/mod wheels, multiple MIDI connections. Even though they are 25 years old, they were built like tanks- if you find one you will most likely need to replace the battery soldered on to the main board, and consider changing out the floppy drive for one of those modern floppy emulators.

NAMM: Every year I think, OK, this is my last one...and then every summer I get "the email" and next thing I know I am going again. Besides, NAMM always falls on my birthday, and we wants it, my precious! This year I am going to be checking out dedicated piano-touch controllers (like the Kawai VPC1, etc.) and be on the lookout for the next new thing from DSI. Always interested in checking out any analog Poly. Behringer will not be there, so EFF 'EM. Would be nice to see/hear/play some new product from Moog. Visiting the Euromodular pavilion is always fun, and grabbing some more swag from the Reverb Pavilion. Going down to the basement/Hall E to see all of the weird, surprising stuff. I still owe Markyboard a drink...

"9V DC from a disposable PP3 (6LR61) battery or an external 9V power supply has been the de facto standard for effects pedals pretty much since they were first invented. In the meantime, the rest of the world has moved on, and most of our other portable devices these days are powered via USB... The 529 takes a 5V USB input and converts it to 9V pedal power ports. There are four isolated 150mA outputs for powering conventional effects pedals plus a 500mA high power output for those devices with higher current requirements. The USB input can be almost any type of USB power device. A USB wall charger such as you use with your phone or tablet will work fine, and there is one included with the 529. The kicker though, is that you can also use a USB rechargeable battery pack. Almost any off the shelf USB battery pack will work. Smaller 1A packs will be enough for a few pedals. 2.1A packs will allow you to use more plus those with higher current demands such as some digital pedals. If you need more than the 5 outputs, you can chain two 529 units together and use them with a 2.1A USB power source to power up to 10 pedals. $149 Retail"

Having just yesterday ordered a Voodoo Labs power thingie for my daughter this would have been cool if you could also power it directly via AC; for those times when you don't have a USB device handy. But then I guess you would need an AC adapter, unless of course... deadhorse they had a built in power supply/converter deadhorse .

Oh the power! facepalm

I think they are saying you can plug it into the AC wall using the AC to USB adapter that comes with pretty much all smart phones.

Already mentioned this in another thread, but I'd like a new 76-key flagship Roland with aftertouch, and a Montage-based S90 successor (with the wheels above the keyboard, duh).

If that happens and it sounds as good as I imagine, I may just ditch the laptop rig.

Surely the GrandStage is an SV2 by any other name? It's a piano-oriented performance keyboard with a clonewheel engine (that arguably should have been in the SV1 to start with!)

Come to think of it, my wish for NAMM would be to have a new version of one of these devices that holds 5-10 configurations with front panel recall buttons. No need to have front panel configuration editing...just the ability to select a stored configuration.
