        Put this in the "nearly new gear thread"--I've had a WICKED case of the stomach flu/gastroenteritis, along with the whole family (wife and three kids) for the last three days. Work has had me swamped, kind of down in the dumps anyway, so a little retail therapy was in order. Browsing the CL ads and saw someone with a Korg Triton LE for "make an offer". I threw him an offer of $300, which I expected would be the starting point for ensuing negotiations....but he accepted. Trying to set up meeting time today to pick it up.



        If I like it, I think the Triton may replace the MM6 in my lineup as my general rompler and primary midi controller for the TR. I'm hoping that there won't be too much overlap between the TR and the Triton LE. From what I have listened to online, it sounds like the general rompler lineup (pianos, organs, strings, etc.) is stronger in the Triton, plus a more recently dated soundset. Of course there is the sequencer too, but almost everything I use is live performance, so not much use for that. But I don't anticipate getting rid of the TR, because there are just too many Wavestation-type motion pads in there that I just love.
        My gear list:

        Guitars: Epi Les Paul w/ BG Dark Buckers; '06 MIM Fender Strat; '89 MIJ Fender/Squier Tele; '90 MIJ Fender Strat; Seagull S6
        Amps: Vox AC30; Fender Champion 600; Vox Pathfinder 15
        Pedalboard: CS-2/Fulldrive II/SD-1/DD-20/DD-5/Behringer verb/Fish & Chips/Ernie Ball VP/TU-2

        Mandolin: Loar LM-520

        Keys/Synths: Korg Triton; Korg TR-Rack; Roland SH 201; Yamaha MM6; Yamaha DX7; Mac Powerbook w/ Komplete Elements 7, Vanguard; Reaper; Reason; Korg Electribe ES-1

                  Yeah. This is why I always ask at garage sales. I always ask if they have any records or instruments. The lady said she had a synthesizer from the 80's next door. She said it was worth $400-500 on ebay, but she didn't remember the name or model. She took me over and there it was. She said she wanted $200 but would take $150 at the lowest. I had five $20 bills in my wallet and told her I could get it out of her life right then and there. Obviously she just wanted it out of her life.

                    HP EliteBook 8560w. Well okay, work issued this to me, but it is a fine laptop for doing just about everything that does not require a gaming GPU. The Quadra 2000M graphics board is optimized for CAD...







                    This laptop has a high speed SD slot right in the front, so I bought a high speed 64 GB card for it to put my personal music-related stuff on it. Some people are using the SD slot like a solid state boot drive for Ubuntu and other cool things. Otherwise October is double-whammy property tax and home owner's insurance premium payment month so no other big purchases.



                    In case you wonder why HP, I have no choice. I get what they issue. At least I can load up the RAM. I decided to stop at adding a 16 GB kit. This thing maxes out at 32 GB which is more than my octacore desktop.

                    ...Music can be used to stimulate mass emotion, while mathematics cannot; and musical incapacity is recognized (no doubt rightly) as mildly discreditable, whereas most people are so frightened of the name of mathematics that they are ready, quite unaffectedly, to exaggerate their own mathematical stupidity.
