No, it was not.

Mike Martin has already eluded to the Privias. Just check out his latest avatar here. The new slim CDP’s have already leaked. The manuals are available on the US site.

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:

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.

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 .

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

Check out the wobble starting at about 1:58... looks like an x-stand disaster in the making...


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!

Looks like a Line 6 Helix, I think. All the rage with guitar players currently.

Thanks, Eric. I think you're right. I saw the glowing light and thought "Superknob" and concluded it was a yamaha product as well. Looking again, it doesn't look at all like the superknob... LOL



Had heard about it. I think they had recently a SOS review on HX Stomp which I thought is was interesting.

Roland FP-10

“88-note weighted-action keyboard, a compact, if slightly chunky design, and Roland’s SuperNATURAL piano sound. Other sounds are onboard, too, such as organs, strings and the intriguing ‘jazz scat’, while there’s a built-in metronome. Bluetooth midi, speakers onboard.”

My take: A ventilator is a device that moves air in order to ventilate. A leslie is a device that rotates like a fan and also moves air, though it's primary purpose is to move sound. The movement of air by the motion of the Leslie does in fact act as a form of ventilation, and is analogous to the movement of air by a hospital "ventilator", which I happen to be very familiar with. So to call something that simulates a form of ventilation as "Ventilator" makes sense to me. I think.

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.
