As most of you know, the 2019 Winter NAMM Show will begin Thursday, January 24th at the Anaheim Convention Center, and run through Sunday, the 27th. Like last year, there are three threads: 1) an advance thread for speculation, wish lists, and early product announcements, or "NAMMticipation" as I like to call it, 2) an advance thread for planning: how to get passes, when and where to meet up with other forum members, etc., and 3) the traditional NAMM Reports thread for product announcements, videos, and reports from members on what and who they saw at the Convention Center.

This, of course, is the traditional NAMM Reports thread.

Please post your Winter NAMM 2019 reports here, for forum members who are not fortunate enough to go to the show.

Feel free to discuss NAMM announced gear, events, and performances in this thread.

Best,

Geoff

Dear Senior Trade Show Overseer!

As you may remember I'm basically covering the NAMM Show from the guitar player perspective. So should I post my NAMM report here or somewhere else?

Cheers,

Mats N

Imo aside from devices that potentially overlap into the keyboard world (certain effects pedals for example) it might be best to start a separate NAMM - Guitar Focus thread. However I don't think anyone's going to get too bent out of shape if you report here.

Good on you for thinking to ask. twothumbs

It's good to see you here, Mats! I certainly want to encourage you to post here as often as you have something relevant to add. Your insight is always valuable. My experience is that we have a moderate tolerance—and sometimes enjoyment—of off-topic threads here, as long as they're labeled "OT:" in the subject heading.

As Mark pointed out, it's likely that there may be some interest from keyboard players in elements of your report; and of course, some of our forum members play both keyboards and guitar. His suggestion of a separate thread is a good idea, and I think it would be great if you could post a link to it in this thread.

Best,

Geoff

Synclavier Digital Corporation (SDC) is debuting two iOS apps, based on the Synclavier Digital Audio System



Synclavier Go! (for iPad) and Synclavier Pocket! (for iPhone and iPod Touch) re-create the original Synclavier II FM Synthesis engine, with a touch-screen interface inspired by the original hardware. The Synclavier DSP Engine – used by Arturia in its Synclavier V product line – is a faithful recreation of the FM- and Additive-Synthesis functions of the original instrument.

Synclavier Knob is an authentic re-creation of the control knob used in the original Synclavier instrument. This USB-powered version o?ers an unparalleled experience for the sound designer and synthesist, especially when compared to traditional mouse-driven computer interfaces.

Pricing and Availability

The new iOS apps are expected to be available on Jan 23. Pricing is TBA. Availability and pricing for the Synclavier Knob is TBA. Details are still to come at the Synclavier site.

What's the deal with the knob on a Synclav? I always assumed it was just a data wheel like the Roland Alpha Dial, or the countless variants that have appeared after.

You've got to be kidding me. $400 for a freaking knob?!? The Microsoft Dial is a hundred bucks.

I think who ever made that pricing decision is a knob.

Derek Badala of RME will be giving an potentially interesting lecture on Choosing the Right Audio Interface on Friday, January 25, 2019, 12:00pm to 2:00pm, Hilton, Level 4, C2.

Quote:
When choosing an audio interface, there are several things to consider to obtain the perfect interface for your needs. With Firewire essentially obsolete, many think that Thunderbolt is the best solution. Is this true? Also, is USB 2.0 still good enough for the latest audio requirements? Is USB 3.0 an alternative? Additionally, there’s a modern-day obstacle—latency! When audio recording transitioned from analog to digital in the 1990s, life became a lot easier for recording engineers—edits, overdubs and effect processing were quicker and more powerful. The downside was the introduction of a new challenge that didn’t exist before in the analog world. In an audio interface, there are several places where latency starts, and each one must be addressed in order to provide low-latency monitoring. We will look at how a complete approach to interface design takes all these bottlenecks into account and can offer a much better experience for the end user.

Ahem, OT ( short for Off topic )
If you are informally ( as in loosely ) invited to play at a booth... can a suitable keyboard be readily provided by the one who is responsibile for booth?

Mats, I encourage you to post anything here that is not specifically for guitar. A great example would be small reviews of the many creative Electro-Harmonix pedals, which are often useful for keyboardists. Everyone has to be a virtual producer to some extent, so any new item might end up being a welcome addition or problem solver in a rig. Bring it on, please. like

Hmmm - Monday, January 8 and very little “leaks”, buzz, rumors from the keyboard developers. We’re in a holding pattern.

Thank you, Mike! Great way to kick this thread off!
The controls and feedback under the faceplate does look slick and stylish.
I’m thinking really nice for living room instruments and venue installs on console type instruments. Slim as well... practice rooms and apartments. interest peaked!

like

My Minimoog and OB Xpander will love it too !

Stereo inputs accepting line level, presets and MIDI control is what I always wanted from vintage sounding stomp box FX.
I miss these sounds since I sold the Binson Echorec, Roland RE-501 and a Korg tape echo and replaced w/ rackmount digital delays.

Not to take away from Strymons incredible quality and proper impedence for Dual TS, but Timeline has this algorithm and a few options.
It’s not as souped up as this Pedal but it does far more in terms of variety

Same for Mobius too. Leslie’s, phasers, chorused, pitch shift, vibratos, pattern flanges, etc,etc.
I bought the Deco, Mobius, Timeline and Big Sky.
Keyboard guys only need Mobius and Timelie.
Timeline gets killer Tape Reverbs, etc.

You’ll notice no glitching on Strymon FX when modulating time on delays, or modulstupion fox, and you can alter size and decay with no zippers.
That’s impressive and make for great ducking effects and reverse Algol full wet are from lower the Hell.
Even the looper live from buttons on my K4 is just fantastic.

Don’t let me dust your buzz about the Strymon, but I would have appreciated if someone told me Timeline can do Big Sky, or Mobius can Dual Deco.

I hear you, Heywood. I just dig this as it does spring reverb and tape delay in one pedal. Exactly what I was looking for. Similar to the Boss RE-20, but with more choices.

Nah. An advertisement was on on Kapro's Facebook wall. It was removed pretty quickly. The ad said " Kapro EXs272 comes with Korg Kronos SE" but all the other Kronos users can buy it from the Korg Kronos Shop"

I don't know what the SE is. Could be a cheaper shitty plastic Kronos or it could be a normal Kronos in a different color with new Libraries .... Who know. Could actually be new hardware. No idea.

As usual I don't know anything.

Hope to hell the SE (If there really is an SE) a 76/73 semi-weighted version. Not holding my breath though.

The leak only helps to generate preNAMM buzz - if which there has been very little.

I noticed. Us Korg followers don't handle a vacuum of silence very well [or its just me].

Plus its sort of boring when there is no real news.

There’s also that T-Rex replicator which has a certain tone and vibe to it. Although this Strymon looks a lot more useful.

I listened to all of the demos and conclude I might get it just because Strymons are just incredible sounding units for synths.
Guitars sound OK but using SpaceF Router and Bus Mixer your keys become the effect. It’s really surprising how well these work live too.

Notice how I stick them in between the router and mixer, using FireWire Insert Modules.
This means 100% wet reverse loops are really what they say they are.
You play 4 beats ahead and join in the fun, or play above the reverse loops.
Sick shit no doubt.

I might stick in on the dry channel since it’s not really necessary.
Just a rack of FX MIDI Controlled where you send whatever audio you want anywhere in real time.

I hear you, Heywood. I just dig this as it does spring reverb and tape delay in one pedal. Exactly what I was looking for. Similar to the Boss RE-20, but with more choices.


Strymon's earlier pedal El Capistan is also a tape delay w/ spring reverb.

true, Paolo. However one of the "more choices" I was referring to is stereo inputs, which the El Capistan doesn't have. It is almost half the price though. thu

A Dexibell video on FB says Dexibell is going blue, whatever that means, and has the words “pro stage piano”.

I think this means that they'll be introducing new keyboards that use the same blue shell as the Vivo S9 as opposed to the greyish shells used by the Vivo S7 and Vivo P series digital pianos.Just speculation on my part. Though this Vivo S7 Pro teaser seems to somewhat confirm this

Well, not everyone liked the T-Rex Replicator.
Meanwhile, the company achieved the right to bear the "Binson Echorec" name, work(ed) on a replica of the real deal and announced @NAMM 2017 already.

I owned the Binson Echorec PE 603 TU
When I sold it for cheap, I had no chance to get it serviced or repaired anymore.

These were very special sounding machines and not comparable to tape echo/delay.

Anyway,- I´m not interested to get a 1:1 mechanical replica of that machine.
Modern technology is o.k. for me when reliable built,- and it seems Strymon did everything I want and combine w/ 2 different tape echo modes, spring reverb and looper.
For me, that´s 5 machines in one box I can use w/ any mono- or stereo- output single instrument, in any FX loop or as an Aux-FX device.

More history on Echorec and available clones HERE

Dexibell added a comment to the youtube video detailing more info about the VIVO S7 Pro

Quote:

S7 PRO share same technology of actual S7 with several major improvements:
- Better Keyboard: TP 40 Graded Hammer Action Keyboard
- Professional Outputs : 2-XLR balanced + 2-¼” Jack Unbalanced
- 4 parts - 4 pedal inputs
- 8 independent EFX (2 x each part)
- Cosmetics and wooden side panels from S9
- New Human interface derived from S9
- DC-IN with security lock
- DEXIBELL Continuous Sustain Pedal included

That's why it is still called S7 with the addition of PRO

Yes, I wondered why there´s the "dry channel" at all.
The Strymons offer "true" hardware bypass AFAIK.

That´s very flexible,- provided that there´s SCOPE/XITE in the ballpark.

I guess, you and me, we´re the only forumites using it.

But instead using several stompbox-type FX boxes, I´d wish Strymon came up w/ a 1HU rack unit combining at least Mobious, Volante and BigSky, offering dedicated audio I/Os, MIDI trio and USB.

I can dream ...

Ah fair enough. The couple of times I've heard the El Capistan used live with a synth, it sounded great to me.

I apologize in advance if this hurts anybody's eyes, but I'm a Dreadbox fan - their upcoming FX box appears to have real spring reverb, digital delay, and analog BBD section for chorus/flange:

Someone mentioned Strymon. I've got a Big Sky. What moron in their design dept puts 1/16th white text and drops it on a light blue anodized case. That's supposed to be a foot operated, right?

Love the sound, not AT ALL impressed for the build quality for the price. Every LED light is burnt out (faded out over time) surrounding the upper left rotating knob.

Ok, I did not mean to thread-jack...

MOD DUO X
MOD Devices (booth 10106)
https://www.moddevices.com



Quote:
This standalone pandora box carries an endless array of effects, virtual instruments, MIDI and CV tools, and numerous hardware connections to suit every musician out there. The MOD Duo X offers all the flexibility of a computer, but with the convenience and toughness of a standalone device. It features two independent audio channels, each equipped with three different analog preamps, DIN-MIDI, USB-MIDI, dual channel CV input and output, and s/pdif output for seamless live performance and studio applications.

MOD users have access to more than four hundred free and commercial plugins at the MOD Plugin Shop, created by independent and renowned developers, all at the reach of one click. Supported by a strong open-source community, the gallery is always growing.

All the plugins can be patched with matchless flexibility using the browser-based construction, a visual interface that allows the user to split, join and even feedback signals in a modular fashion. All the creations can be saved, uploaded to the cloud, and used anytime without the necessity of a computer.

Because power is nothing without control, ten fully assignable knobs, and six push buttons make the MOD Duo X a universe at your fingertips. If that's not enough, the MIDI learn function allows the unit to be manipulated by any class-compliant controller in the market.

"Our products are developed to solve real musicians’ problems, not to beat demands coming from specific market categories. We create a box musicians can open to achieve their sonic ambitions, whatever they are - first with the MOD Duo and now with the MOD Duo X, for a more hands-on approach." Says Gianfranco Ceccolini, MOD Chief Product Officer and Founder.

There's also a CDP-S350:

EDIT -- Sorry, I didn't realize that the YouTube page isn't a video, just a still image! razz

EDIT 2 -- And I was just looking for the manual at the Casio Music site, and there's also a CDP-S150 listed under the manuals search.

The new CP





https://yamahamusicians.com/yamaha-new-c...5dVHFJVfWRv25Bk

Assuming it has the same CFX and Bosendorfer samples as the Montage/MODX, I may just want to ditch my MODX8 and get a 7 on top of one of these CP’s.

The Yamaha new looks interesting, kind of like the MP11 with the wooden action. I'm curious what the weight is. I don't see that listed in the specs.

update:
Quote:
CP88 features Natural Wood Graded Hammer (NW-GH) and hence an authentic grand piano feel, making it the ideal choice for piano purists. CP73 offers 73 equally weighted keys for keyboarders playing with a larger number of different sounds on stage.


Hmm a 73 key too!

Looks like Yamaha is going after Nord's territory with the 1-to-1 UI on the CP88 and CP73.

This is very interesting to me as Yamaha has also been at the forefront of the upcoming next-gen MIDI spec and with the updatable OS it should be relatively future proof. Also includes a built-in MIDI interface and audio in.

They listened to me and put the knobs and switches from the Reface CP on their new stage piano. grin
Interesting take on pitch and mod, more Nord like for sure than wheels.

Keybed is basically what is on the P515, without escapement, and with triple sensors. It is NOT the same as the CP4.

That doesn't sound like an improvement but .... I played the 515 side by side with the CP300. The CP300 is lovely.

I think Yamaha will sell quite a few of these. And the expanding library concept is a big plus. To an extent they're moving into Nord's territory; however, they're still staying away from a drawbar-style interface for the organ tones. But for a stage piano with world-class pianos, some electro-mechanical keys and supporting synth tones, it looks to a very strong contender. Sounds great so far.

See the new dedicated thread for further discussion of Yamaha CP88/CP73, so this thread doesn't get bogged down with what is likely to be the biggest product announcement at NAMM (from this forum's perspective, barring any organ or synth surprises):

http://forums.musicplayer.com/ubbthreads...the#Post2969072

It is a bit surprising to see January as a Digital Piano product rollout month -- although I think that was when the original CP-1/CP-5/CP-50 got released.

Agreed, even without the 3rd party custom oscillators.

Volca Modular looks similarly stunning in bang for the buck - they managed to squeeze a decent reverb into there.

Hey guys, the discussion moved to its own topic for CP-88/CP-73. All questions and follow-up are already resolved there. We need to keep this NAMM discussion free from bloat on a mega-product announcement that already has its own dedicated thread.

http://forums.musicplayer.com/ubbthreads...the#Post2969072

I have deleted and moved my earlier comments to try to nip this in the bud.

Kronos SE is red. There is a new 'Italian' Grand plus the new KApro sound set from Kurt.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8p_idBuKirk

https://www.korg.com/us/products/synthesizers/kronos2/#se

And no it probably doesn't need another thread. It's red. Just like the platinum one and the black one. Big whoop. I liked the platinum better. Better for low light environments.

I'm kind of surprised they did not add the transistor organ engine that they developed for the Continental/Grandstage.

I'm glad to see another color on the 61, to help address the stage visibility of the usual black-on-black design.

Eh,it's just a limited edition paint job.



"The KRONOS SE includes a standard new Italian piano PCM, based on the Italian sounds featured in the KORG Grandstage. These special edition sounds coincide with the release of KApro’s sound library “KApro Showcase”; featuring more than 100 titles to compose and perform extraordinary music.

In addition to the remarkable new sounds, the KRONOS SE is designed with its signature high impact front panel, in a beautiful red and black finish, perfect for players looking to add a little flare to their keyboard rig."

Thread is already going for this, but I thought it should get a mention here anyways to keep things together.

Korg Krome EX: https://www.korg.com/us/products/synthesizers/krome_ex/




So far it seems to be a Krome with more sounds added.

Does it mean that new Italian Grand is PCM and not SGX-2 based as in the Grandstage? And that colour ... would probably irritate me if I look at it for too long. looks like this year will be Yamaha's year, not Korg's.

In the very short intro video it shows the SGX screen while the person plays the Italian grand. All SGX pianos are sample/PCM-based. You can load any of the Kronos SGX pianos into HD-1, though you lose quite a bit in the process.

Daniel Fisher video on the Minilogue xd. I didn't realize it has the FXs from the Prologue. In many ways, it's a poor man's Prologue.

It does look odd. Maybe it's one of those things that looks better in person, don't know.

That was my immediate thought as well. "Those who don't learn are doomed to repeat, yadda yadda" snax

Korg really has a thing for cosmetic repackaging to claim a special edition, don't they?

The SGX-2 engine uses PCM. Just not in the HD-1 voice architecture.

Perhaps the synth biz is more like running a distillery than a technology company -- plans for high end boutique products have to include 20 years of barrel aging.

I have been seriously hoping for years that Casio will finally make a digital piano that I will want to support.

I am NOT going to be able to make it to NAMM this year - no one took me up on my offer of to and from cartage from LAX to Anaheim in exchange for a pass. Your loss.

Back to Casio. The new Yamaha P- 515 is going to give it some SERIOUS competition, at least in the amplified digital piano category. I hope they are up to the challenge.

The P 515 has five or six very good digital piano samples including CFX and Bosendorfer. Not to mention - finally - some very good Rhodes and Wurli samples.

The internal amplification system gets up and SPEAKS. Add a subwoofer to this and the output competes with a grand piano. It may be possible to gig this and not have to bring any more than a small subwoofer - for solo gigs and jazz trio etc. at least.

Price point is 1500 dollars, so at a 10 to 15 percent sale, roughly 1300 - 1350

So I am hoping Casio is up to this.

Yamaha's P515 DIGITAL PIANO weighs 48.5 pounds. That's too heavy for me to move around with. My Casio PX360 is 26 pounds and I am looking to get a lighter model with the new casios. A 73 key Casio with an aluminum base, onboard monitors, that weighs ~ 19 pounds would be awesome.

A friend just recorded this on his P-515. Just going on the video, it sounds to have more warmth then my CP4. Too heavy for most gig schleps but perfect for me at home. Would love to get out of headphone mode in the office and drive my wife nuts transposing lines and voicings to all keys... poke...can you go outside to the studio to do that stuff !! cry

You might be interested in checking out the CDP-S350, although it’s 88 keys, not 73. You can download the manuals for it from Casio’s web site, although I don’t think it’s been officially unveiled yet— any day now, though!

https://www.casio-music.com/euro/digitalpianos/compact/cdp-s350/%22/

Looks like no MIDI DIN ports, if that matters to you; and polyphony is a bit low for a digital piano— 64 notes, 32 for certain tones. But it has a goodly number of tones, and responds to MIDI messages for Attack/Release, Cutoff/Resonance, Portamento, etc., so I’m definitely interested in giving it a hard look. smile

How much do MIDI DIN ports cost to add in? There have been a few budget, light weight, 73 key'd pianos released recently that would have been perfect for a bottom slave board, but alas, no MIDI ports. Surely companies realise the market they miss out on by not including them?

At this year's NAMM show, Deskew Technologies will be debuting Version 3 of Gig Performer, their VST/VST3/AU live performance plug-in host for Mac and Windows systems.

At the Anaheim Convention Center, January 24-27, live demonstrations of Gig Performer 3.0 will be presented at Ilio (ACC Hall A, booth #11910) and TASCAM (ACC North Hall #18910). Gig Performer 3 adds a bevy of powerful new capabilities, especially to the program's control features.

Gig Performer 3 supports set lists consisting of songs along with song parts that can be accessed directly from controllers or MIDI pedalboards. Song parts allow rackspaces to be reused. For example, a single rackspace containing an acoustic piano sound can be reused to cover 10 songs needing piano.

Gig Performer 3 adds support for the Chord Pro lead sheet format. This allows Chord Pro documents to be created, edited, and linked to songs in a setlist so a chords-and-lyrics chart can be opened when a song is selected.

Remote access has been enhanced significantly to support songs and parts from your iPad or Android device running Lemur. Bidirectional MIDI support for widgets facilitates the use of MIDI control surfaces.

Version 3 also introduces the ability to synchronize Gig Performer with other applications on a wireless network, using Ableton Link.

Numerous other functions and workflow enhancements are included in Gig Performer 3. Gig Performer 3 will be available on January 24th, 2019 and upgrade pricing will be provided shortly.

I don't know about cost, but it seems like keyboards which are aimed at home users rather than gigging performers tend to have USB-MIDI only, so I guess Casio isn't targeting these new CDP models at gigging performers.

It's no big deal to me, because I'm strictly a home user and I usually keep my keyboards connected to my desktop computer via USB anyway, so my computer does all of the MIDI routing and processing that I need.

But I know that some home users won't seriously consider adding a 'board to their setup unless it has MIDI DIN ports so they can directly connect it to other equipment.

Gig Performer 3 supports set lists consisting of songs along with song parts that can be accessed directly from controllers or MIDI pedalboards. Song parts allow rackspaces to be reused. For example, a single rackspace containing an acoustic piano sound can be reused to cover 10 songs needing piano.

Gig Performer 3 adds support for the Chord Pro lead sheet format. This allows Chord Pro documents to be created, edited, and linked to songs in a setlist so a chords-and-lyrics chart can be opened when a song is selected.

Be interested to see more on this. I like MainStage but have always been tempted by Gig Performer...

At this stage so close to NAMM, is it unlikely that we'll now hear any new announcements from the "big guys"?

Roland is quiet - other than the 88k GoPro. But they’ve been releasing on their special days during the year. 8/08 for example.

I hope they made Gadget more performance-friendly, though I know that's not its focus. The two issues I've posted about before...

Quote:
the Triton and Mellow IAPs load into a Gadget called Glasgow. There are over 200 sounds in there, with no good way to navigate them, you just have to keep scrolling through the little hard-to-read 4-item window. There's no full screen, full text size pop-up menu, or any other method of seeing more than 4 of the 200+ at a time. Unless I missed something?

I wish the individual gadgets' presets could be recalled va MIDI Program Change on whichever channel you've assigned them to.

Pet peeve of mine. I bought a USB mid DIN adaptor for this situation. I posted a thread about this - Scott chimed in and give several other options which I was not aware of,

This has me very excited. I love GigPerformer and how it has evolved to it's current state.

The new functionality listed for V3 makes it that much better IMHO.

You might be interested in checking out the CDP-S350, although it’s 88 keys, not 73. You can download the manuals for it from Casio’s web site, although I don’t think it’s been officially unveiled yet— any day now, though!

https://www.casio-music.com/euro/digitalpianos/compact/cdp-s350/%22/

Looks like no MIDI DIN ports, if that matters to you; and polyphony is a bit low for a digital piano— 64 notes, 32 for certain tones. But it has a goodly number of tones, and responds to MIDI messages for Attack/Release, Cutoff/Resonance, Portamento, etc., so I’m definitely interested in giving it a hard look. smile


CDP-S350 video from Jeremy See showed up in my news feed. Not terrible.

Not sounding great in this video, I’m guessing Camera mic capturing the slim model’s onboard speakers. But very light at 24lbs (without batteries). I assume it’s the same Casio action on PX-160 or no?

USB only no 5pin midi.

Two pedal jacks, not sure how useful:
DAMPER/ASSIGNABLE jack:
Standard jack (Sustain, Sostenuto, Soft, Rhythmus)
PEDAL-UNIT jack:
Proprietary jack (Sustain, Sostenuto, Soft)

But they did include a pitch bend wheel!

Could be nice small and light weight controller.

Pretty sure that is a direct signal; notice no room noise, key thumping, breathing, or chair squeaking. His other videos seem to be direct to computer as well.

Not the greatest for sure, but it could be worse. Reminds me of some of their older stage pianos that I tried years ago. Not natural really.

Korg Kross SE. Found it accidentally when looking at the downloads section on Korg USA.

Thought it was the Kross 2 until I found out that the Kross 2 is simply called "Kross" in the downloads.

Kross SE Downloads Section (Korg USA): https://www.korg.com/us/support/download/product/1/442/



EDIT: Looks like it hit the web four days ago. No mention here though.

https://www.gearnews.com/namm-2019-korg-dreams-up-some-kronos-krome-and-kross-specials/

https://www.musicradar.com/news/namm-201...-se-workstation

Pre-order price on Gear4Music is $778: https://www.gear4music.com/us/en/Keyboards-and-Pianos/Korg-Kross-61-SE-Neon-Blue/2U6Q

Man are those ugly IMO.




Edit 2: Korg UK's page under Kross 2: https://www.korg.com/uk/products/synthesizers/kross2/#se



Edit 3: J. Dan - perfect for a "reunion" of the Atari Twins (I think that was the name?).

Edit 4: Looks like just more sounds added (notice it says "pre-installed" rather than "expanded" or the like. Maybe they will have them for sale/available to Kross 2 owners.

New sounds list: https://cdn.korg.com/us/support/download...cation%2Fpdf%3B

Dunno which stages you mean.
At least for concert touring, light designers prefered black or white gear on stage always,- and for my own purpose as a performer, I always had dimmable small goosneck lamps everywhere mounted/ velcroed on the keyboards.

Many of us periodically find ourselves playing in sub-optimal lighting conditions.

Nicer not to have to bother with them.

Dunno which stages you mean.
At least for concert touring, light designers prefered black or white gear on stage always,- and for my own purpose as a performer, I always had dimmable small goosneck lamps everywhere mounted/ velcroed on the keyboards.

A.C.


I carried small lights with me over the years and had a dedicated carrying case for them with extra bulbs in a hard case so they wouldn't get crushed.

Completely dark night clubs got old when I couldn't even see my instrument unless there was a strobe light flashing somewhere. I played one song after the other to keep the music coming and the crowd under control. Lighting made gigs doable in dark clubs. Small stage lights are a small investment compared to what the rest of our gear costs.

The Nord Piano Monitor look great!
(sound pretty good too, through my headphones! j/k)

Seriously though, I'm loving that piano sound in the demo vid - can anyone tell which instrument it is?

Cheers,

VST3 hosting in SigMod
https://nugenaudio.com/sigmod

"Enter today’s timely, significant update to SigMod — same as it ever was, while now also allowing VST3 hosting of plug-ins in Pro Tools (AAX environment), Ableton (VST2 environment), and Logic (AU environment). Ultimately, users can apply any plug-in in mid/side mode, add split L/R functionality, or split frequencies and route audio anywhere within the DAW itself, for instance. Indeed, SigMod just got significantly better!"

" cloud-based sample management software from Loopmasters that enables you to work with both samples that you buy and those that you upload, is set to be updated once again. Version 4 will be landing in the first quarter of 2019, with comprehensive loop editing options on the agenda. The Loop Editor is billed as “a sample-slicing and pattern workbench”. You can use it to adjust the arrangement, timing and levels of individual sample slices, and once you’re happy with your edits, you can audition any other sample in your library and have it conform to the same pattern."

The basic requirement is the inability playing a keyboard or any instrument at all plus suffering from some hearing problems.

Those abbreviations on the device are open to interpretation;

DRV= is a popular 'luxury ' RV

FLT= could be flirt. Or flat. or float. Flirt takes it.

RES= resist ? resuscitate ? resound ? Resuscitate wins.

VOL= voluptuous ? voluminous ? volunteer ? Voltar ?
Tough call. I say voluptuous.

That product name didn't fit for me. Was the inventor Mr Vent ? or Mr Ventil ?

or was the device name a typo for "Yentilator " ?
Possible copyright problem with that name.

I can see where " Resuscitator " for a name could cause some marketing doubt.

Now it depends on the build quality, tech-specs ( dual- or triple sensor ?) and playability of the action.
It´s a weighted action w/ aftertouch ...

And it has a flat top which I´d like to put my Kurz PC361 on top.

But the AKAI MPK Road 88 is also 62.1 lbs/ 28.3 kilos !

I downloaded the userguide and haven´t found any description how to teach the machine different MIDI CCs for 2 connected expression pedals.

I don't know about you, but so far I am not feeling any excitement for anything new at NAMM from what I've seen or heard so far. And nothing that will raise the bar from what I already have.

The new Yamaha CP's offer some new things in this category, but I am definitely not feeling anything that is next generation out of staples like Nord, Korg, Roland, Kurzweil, no new must have clonewheel, plug ins or anything that cause me to agonize over my wallet.

I know there is still time before NAMM, but I'm either feeling underwhelmed or very well stocked for the future.

I’m interested in seeing what Synclavier has in store. Their website hinted that there was something big coming besides their iOS apps and the Big Knob. It may be too expensive or it might be the answer to the Kronos. Dexibell has two unannounced products coming. And the new Casio Previa might be amazing. Roland? Yawn. Yamaha? Yawn. Kurzweil? Yawn. Studiologic? Yawn. Korg? Yawn.

Ideally, I think it's best to be excited by new technology while also being happy with what you have. It's a tough balance to achieve, I know; but that's what I strive for anyway.

Oh, and by the way, the doors to NAMM will open the day after tomorrow. The show has yet to begin.

Best,

Geoff

I know what you are saying. I think we have to wait until Thurs/Friday to determine if its
ho-hum or whatever.

Even so, if one is not finding much at NAMM that is interesting, take a a larger view; we get a sense of what certain cos are really focusing on.

For example, I am a Korg/Roland watcher.

What they present as new is an indicator of what their priorities are. How they spend their internal money and resources for a year in prep of 2019, is as important as a product you might highly interested in.

Maybe this is the best place for a shameless plug! Our new video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZRC3b4p4EI is a 40 minute adaptation of T. S. Eliot's "Prufrock" - check it out!

Yes, but remember, it is it's own hard case as well .

My FA-08 in its Gator Slim line hard case weighed 65lbs.

Definitely. I just spent a good chunk of savings on a brand new Nord Stage 3 last Summer, and I'm still getting acquainted with it - I haven't used the synth section to its fullest potential yet. I'm generally good gear-wise at the moment. I just need more time to use it!

But NAMM will be a fun time to catch up with friends, network with folks and geek out. A lot of my friends are into the whole Comic-Con/Anime convention scene, which I have absolutely no interest in, but I kind of envy how their crowd comes together for huge events, so I see NAMM as my own opportunity to "Con" (minus the cosplay, of course :)).

Orchestral Tools held an event in LA today with a number of major announcements. None of the products are available yet. Here are the highlights:

Orchestral Tools has created a free Orchestral Tools Sample Player, in conjunction with Axel Hartmann. Features include Auto Volume Scaling to enable legato transition and release samples to blend better, High Res Resampler, Mic Position Merging, Core Implemented Legato, and Advanced Articulation Management. Libraries will continue to be available in Kontakt format as well.

The new sample player will debut with the release of a free instrument called "Layers: Studio Ensembles," using small ensembles structured in layers of different kinds, such as mixed timbres and chords.

Customers will also have a wider choice in pricing structure with the availability of bundle pricing and à la carte pricing for individual mic positions, instruments, and articulations.

In addition, Orchestral Tools announced Junkie XL Brass to be developed with composer Tom Holkenborg, who promises a larger than life sound. The company also announced LA Sessions: Songwriter Instruments, a collection of pop instruments recorded at United Recording, in Studio B. The instruments include Studio Strings, Electric Guitar, Gospel Choir, Acoustic Guitar, Drum Set, Rhodes, Wurlitzer, and Electric Bass.

The event was live streamed here:

And ditto for Motion Sound? I was hoping to check out their new amp.

And another new amp has popped up on their site. KP-610D. I think they have some typos on the URL and spec, but the link is http://www.msamps.com/copy-of-kp-500s

Yes, but remember, it is it's own hard case as well .

My FA-08 in its Gator Slim line hard case weighed 65lbs.


Yah, really, 62.1 lbs including case is great. My Motif XF8 plus hard shell Yamaha case makes around 100 lbs. Ugh. But it's what I use everywhere. Sometime a manufacturer should quit adding bricks. 40-lb or under 88-key Motif-type keyboard? That would be one upgrade that might tempt me. Not for a long time I'd guess. Maybe once carbon fiber tech gets cheaper? laugh
