    Yeah, the old review section was very useful, I never look to the site for reviews anymore.

      The liberal infested political forums with daily ra ra chants for their chosen one doesn't help. That alone has made many of the conservative minded stay away. Of course that's probably the intent. It's good to see people actually discussing music and gear on here...

        I still visit a lot. Though I don't partake very often because most topics are not relevant to my interests these days.

              I don't miss the whole threads of incessant argument the place could be filled with sometimes.



              And of course, Puppy banning me from posting pics of tied up women probably hasn;t helped things either.

                you mean they made the equip reviews WORSE then they already were?? I stopped looking at them BEFORE the "upgrade" because they were not... well, not so good, but at least useable.

                If posting abused looking women gets you banned..... maybe.... don't do it? Just an idea

                  I used to post here, but became disillusioned with electronic music for a number of reasons: a mismatch of talent, the toy-like quality of today's gear, the non-immediacy of programming/sequencing, the lack of emphasis on performable music, the plague of DJs, etc. There are more rewarding hobbies out there.



                  Got rid of all keys gear except a PC3, a piano, and a custom-built organ console that I use with Hauptwerk. Currently learning BWV 552.

                        Buy, I hear ya. I used to compete with the best of them talentwise.... now any idiot with a laptop can "make beatz" and they are generic and suck and the world eats it up. I download free ACID once, dragged some presets onto track, saved and sent to friends.... they LOVED it! Thought it was great. I did nothing than a lucky monkey could have done. ZERO talent utilized. So, I'm dissillusioned as well... for a lil while. But, I'm stocking up on positive attitude, dumping MIDI and getting back to writting. I think it can be fun again.

                          I took up organ playing fairly recently, and I really love it. I love how between two organs I only have one transistor, and no chips. No programming other than the switches and drawbars.



                          It really IS freeing.



                          My day job is programming, I am a pretty good programmer. I bet xor ax,ax is too, based on his nick. Either that or he's a real zero, LOL. Anyhow. I have to tell you, I get a lot of ideas for writing software to do cool things with my gear, coming up with complex sequences, blah blah blah de blah blah. And I get bummed out, because coding that stuff just isn't any fun any more. I have an Akai MPC loop-making doodad thingamabob, haven't even learned how to use it, same problem, I just don't want anything electronicky in my music life anymore.



                          God I wish I could gig with a real piano, like I can with a tube-amped tonewheel organ. Maybe I should buy a Wurly or a Rhodes..



                          The observation that there isn't a lot of performance-oriented stuff in electronic-land may be part of this. The last time I wrote any code for performance-oriented work was ... let's see, 15 years ago, I was in school and took Electro-acoustic Composition in the music department. I used Opcode's MAX software to write a program designed to let me manipulate the ADSR envelope and operator frequency ratios of a TX7 synthesizer during a live performance. I had my right hand on a MIDI keyboard, and my left hand worked the controls, which were actually the buttons and sliders of a Yamaha DMP-10 MIDI-fied mixer. (I intercepted and decoded sysex messages on the PC, changing them into sysex messages and program changes for the TX7, while passing CC messages etc from a keyboard through)



                          I had never even heard of an organ drawbar at the time. I find it really ironic that my most- and least-techy instruments use the same fundamental controls and basic idea. What I really don't get is why the prof never filled me in. Organs are additive synths, after all... Wierd, man.

                            I come in and check it out once a month.



                            So here I am... still the same... nothing new...



                            see you next month.

                              You need to post fresh pics of your rig, XorAxAx. I know you did once before, but I think some of the newbies would like to see.

                                I think you're onto something here. I would not demean the talent level of electronic musicians, but we must at least recognize that there are two camps when it comes to keys. 1 live performers who favor more traditional sounds, and 2 those more oriented towards programming and sequencing.



                                Just like there is overlap between acoustic and electric guitarist there is overlap between the keyboardist groups. But there are vast areas of disinterest as well. A more traditional player doesn't really care about beats and arpegiaters. While a more electronic oriented player probably cares less how authentic an organ sim is.



                                My point is that whichever camp you fall into you probably find half of the threads here uninteresting. Maybe the keys forum should be split up. Afterall look how many guitar forums there are here and only one for keys...
