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!

Strymon Announces Volante Magnetic Echo Machine

https://www.strymon.net/products/volante/

My 200A is going to love this love


A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

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.
