    • I used to but not anymore due to prices where i live.   Plus the evolution of quality 88 key actions along with VST libraries affected how i shop as well.    Had a Triton then a Motif then a Kronos.   Been shopping for the past 6 months for a quality digital/stage pianos with a great action. Tried many brands.    Settled for a Roland (no it's not the RD-2000).    Can't say because it's "classified". I will have it by mid-summer  
    • Man that’s disappointing news. I was looking at the 5000/6000 as a possible controller for iPad or MacBook. That’s a big discrepancy. I guess these are marketed as home keyboards rather than stage pianos. 
    • Exception?   At that price I'd deam that M Audio must be its flagship model. Hee hee. 
    • We dropped into the Las Vegas Sam Ash this afternoon to check on the deals. 10-20% on accessories but not so good on more expensive items (amps, guitars, keyboards). It appeared they'd reduced inventory quite a bit but I imagine they're shifting things around between stores and such. They had a small selection of tube amps but the discount on those was only 5%. There were some nice guitars and a few nice keyboards still left.   I should note that I'm not in the market for any high end gear; I have a fine collection of top notch guitars, all the keyboards we need and my drummer recently gave me a Marshall DSL15C that will probably become my main gigging amp for the foreseeable future so the deals would have to be rather spectacular to entice me.   The staff were friendly and helpful as always but as you might expect the overall mood was a little somber. My wife and I are really disappointed to see this store close down. We bought a mic stand, a couple of XLR cables and some guitar strings. I'm not sure how long the close out will go on but we'll be leaving to spend June and July in the midwest and are unlikely to get back there.
    • Amazing story, and well done Dennis!  You must be proud of him.

    • I remember seeing the ads in Keyboard and a picture of the Odyssey on the Musicians Friend catalog. I really wanted one but ended up with the MiniMoog because it was available. In the late 70's you didn't have a lot of choices in a small rural town. Was very interested when this came out but reviews of the horrible touch pads scared me away. Wish it had more jacks for interfacing with the Behringer 2600. Still, maybe someday. Wonder how it compares to the Korg version?
    • Carlo, you make that Oddy sound fabulous! I have a black-face Oddy and Axxe in my garage, have had both since the '80's, and both need new sliders, probably new caps, and a ton of cleaning. But hearing you play it made me feel nostalgic for that sound! Given the price of the Behringer, it'll probably be cheaper to just buy a new one than to fix mine.
    • OT - just a comment on the original white face Oddy - I modified mine so I had an octave up/down switch. Also changed the pitch knob to one which had a notch sticking out so that I could curl my little finger round it and be confident that I could return it to the neutral position. And I managed to rewire the modulation slider on the first oscillator so that the second oscillator modulated too. It was all very ambitious of me, with not much real understanding of what I was doing, but it worked nicely. i hung onto it for years, only selling it off about 10 years ago. Nowadays I occasionally use the app on the iPad. It’s close enough for me.
