  1. This is the million dollar question! I have a roll-up carpet (welcome mat type) that works well with velcro, which I have affixed to the bottom of my pedals. These look cool, but slightly costly. https://thepedalpal.com/ Never tried em.
  2. My most recent setup. The Arturia is primarily used as an aux board for gigs connected to the ipad, running Camelot, VB3m, Minimoog, and a few others..... The PC is a windows home built unit running Digital Performer (and of course YouTube). Motion Sound Amp and HX Stop slightly out of frame. And, of course an EVH guitar (a few other axes off screen on the wall). I typically don't take the DMC122/Gemini out of the case unless I'm rehearsing for a gig.
  3. HA - FWIW, before clicking on this, based on the topic title the first thing that came to my mind was Collier. I fell in and out of love with his work fast. Super talented, no doubt, but too much of it comes across like musical ADD to me. He's in a different league of musical knowledge than me, so at times I feel like he's speaking a language my brain just isn't designed to appreciate.
  4. I was a second engineer at the time (e.g. unpaid assistant....lol) and this was fairly common at the time. Both DA-88 and ADAT. Then some studios got wise and started building B rooms based around multiple ADATs and the BRC. Pro-tools was just starting take a foothold, but was a pricy medium because you really needed to buy the expensive DSP units to compete with 24 track machines for real-time recording. I would say once computers got powerful enough to truly record and mix "in the box", that was the death knell of legacy studios. I can't put a timeframe on when that was, but probably circa 2010 before you could really do everything well at home and put it up against studio work. The real winners have been the companies that manufacture and sell to that market. There are a MILLION mics, preamps, plugins, monitors, etc...designed, priced and marketed to the bedroom warriors.
  5. This started as a "what model Roland is that?" post, but eventually they showed an overhead shot with the model visible. Sounds great. Nice fills on the Roland. I'm a new fan of this dude and this is def a nice ear moth. Very good writing and production in this genre (are we still calling this synthwave???)
  6. Dave Weiser. Dave Weiner is in a whole different industry. 😄
  7. If I'm seeing this correctly, that is absolutely the sturdiest music stand I've ever seen.
  8. Not sure about Ritenour, but god, I hope Grusin made a good enough living off of soundtrack work alone that he does this just for the love of it.
  9. All I could think was......
  10. 100% I've been looking at adding a 61 note board to compliment my K2700 and was thinking maybe a PC361, or other 'older' model Kurz. This would def be a potential option. As I dive deeper into VAST programing, I'm really impressed with what can be achieved. It's like FM in that at first sight it is daunting, but after learning the architecture, it's quite logical.
  11. Kudos for the all hardware rig. Not a laptop in sight!
  12. I "discover" a few new artists (to me) every year that give me hope. The talent is out there and always will be. (E.G. Last year I really got into this dude Brothertiger.) There is just a LOT of content (god I hate that term) out there they have to compete with. I don't think AI will help with that equation.
  13. I’ve gone down a few rabbit holes on YouTube lately, watching demo vids of older keyboards (Old meaning 1990 -2010 ish). Keyboards like the Triton Extreme, O1/W Pro, EX5/7, Oasys, Roland Fantoms, V-Synth, JV Modules, K2000 family, et al….. Many of those boards still have fantastic sounds. So I’m wondering, in the digital space (e.g. not VA, Analog, or re-creations), have we long since topped out on what can be done with Subtractive and FM synthesis? (That includes incorporating samples and rom based elements.) Advances in tech and design have certainly yielded myriad improvements, like increased storage space, faster processors, smaller components, lighter form factors, more tactile controls, etc… But is the sound THAT much better? For instance, in the vids above, there were examples from each that still sound as good today as they did when they were originally released. As I write this, I have to admit, as far as Electro Mechanical (Rhodes, Wurli, Acoustic Piano, Hammond) the sound has definitely improved. In the context of subtractive synthesis, I would attribute that to increased memory for better sample sets. Maybe I’m just wondering if there’s still a place in this world for those older boards. Maybe I’m just rambling. Anyone feel me here?
