  1. I’m wondering is it only if you’re playing your instrument on a TV show you feel like covering up the logo? (Where there a wider audience potentially watching) I mean why not cover up the logo on your car/truck/jeans?
  2. Some were chatting about it earlier in this thread. There were only a couple of audio files available at that time. Much more info online now. looks nice.
  3. I think the piano is over shadowing the vocals at the start of the original version and the snare is like someone dropped an anvil on a bunch of saucepans. A friend of mine forwarded this version onto me as well. Much more in keeping with a more classic BJ sound. Snare sound is tight and not overpowering. Kudos to the guy for remixing it. I like the tune, certainly some comparisons with 2000 years/Always a woman. That 6/8 or 12/8 metre is lovely in pop music and underused. Hopefully a new album out soon.
  4. That book is nothing short of amazing. It’s a real goldmine of information, well written and beautifully laid out. My only gripe is that it’s quite bulky and heavy when reading on your lap. I think they have a digital copy as well tho? Often thought about buying it to read on my iPad when on the train.
  5. I just went to speak with a support group earlier this week as I only have it recently. They said there’s a huge study of people over 60,000 participants just coming out of Holland. They have a lot of material to sift though but results are supposed to be very encouraging. Hope they get some results in the coming years. It’s a fascinating condition albeit very frustrating and debilitating for sufferers.
  6. Exactly my thoughts…nice board, weight not so nice. Lot of rehashing going on with the sounds though. It looks like a minor upgrade albeit in a new chassis. Wondering what it’s like sight reading music using the music stand as the music/ipad would sit slightly higher due to the elevated nature of the board. Anyway not on my radar due to weight.

    NAMM 2024

    Yamaha have just launched this: https://usa.yamaha.com/products/music_production/music-production-studios/seqtrak/ looks like teenage engineering type product but with FM and AWM sounds. Might be a nice thing to pair with my CP73 just to get those extra sounds that the CP is missing.
  8. Lovely playing Darren. Really fluid and musical lines. 👍
  9. I got some on eBay a few years ago. Needed them for a focusrite Scarlett interface that arrived with no ears. Not sure where you’re based and what size you’d be looking for but I just took my measurements and put them into eBay with “rack ears” search. I think I got them for €10. Here’s an example: https://www.ebay.ie/itm/302946827179?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=5282-175127-2357-0&ssspo=TfG15T65Taq&sssrc=4429486&ssuid=EhT8DrmmQIu&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  10. Would you be able to post a few examples of the sounds you’re trying to replicate? Some of what you’re asking sounds like sweeps and risers that I use occasionally in a live context. I have use native instruments Rise & Hit: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/cinematic/rise-hit/ I just assign the mod wheel to determine the speed of the change between texture. Might not be what you’re looking for but if you have time post a few examples?
  11. Enjoyed that review, thanks for posting. He’s pretty honest in his appraisal which is nice. No sales talk here. I liked the V Tines offering and didn’t know it was available for iOS so might put it on my list. I’d agree with his pianoteq assessment as well. I think the elec pianos in pianoteq are highly underrated. My go to is usually Scarbee EP88 but for quick plug and play the pianoteq is fantastic. Plenty of choices that’s for sure.
  12. Im not really into synths but I always thought the Arturia MatrixBrute was a lovely looking machine.
  13. We grew up watching it every year in Ireland. It used to be a real event in the household. Cheering on your country. It was a real honour to win it. They used to have a full orchestra accompanying each song and a conductor from each country would conduct the country’s entry. it’s completely changed in the last 25 years. It’s now more about pageantry, who is the most outrageous on stage. The music has very little to do with it anymore. No orchestra, mostly tracks. It’s a spectacle and still fun to watch but not much to do with music.
  14. That’s a really nice stand. Did you get that made or buy it off the shelf?
  15. Nice one….photo looks weird though. Theres a strange outline to Johns body. Looks like he’s been badly photoshopped in….especially up by his right shoulder. Could be just an old photo though. 🤷
