      This month I mainly hope to move house, does a new "studio" space qualify as new gear ?
      Yamaha RM1x, Yamaha AN1x, Zoom RFX1000, Xenyx 1202, Akai MPD24, Reaper, Reason ? no discernable talent.

          I just picked up a Yamaha YC-20 combo organ today. It's got great Vox and Farfisa sounds and can even get a bit Hammondish with the percussion tab.

          It's hard to get the combo sound from anything other than the real thing. The grunt of the transistors is quite primal.

            it's been too long so i finally upgraded to Max 5/MSP/Jitter and am studying a lot to rebuild my skillz; i can't believe i haven't used this is so long. funny enough, i saved a lot of money by buying this from B&H/New York who in turn has cycling '74 ship directly (they're local up in SF).

              Oh, and it may not technically qualify as gear but I ordered the wood kit and rack ears for my Slim Phatty - to rack or not to rack...

                the colour reminds me of a girl who hurt me rather strongly, so i think i want to repaint it PPG Blue, like it should have been to begin with.

                also it needs keybed repair. the overall frame broke its plastic studs. thanks, Fatar!



                it sounds incredible. after i figured out how to initialise a sound i was making wavecomputer sounds in no time!

                  Congrats on that one. I'd like to have one myself. Very much.

                    Aside from the color, what's even uglier is that "XT". It looks as if a child was messing with paint on it. I would paint over that too

                    I'm going to remove the keybed of the DSS-1 too and try to figure out if it can be dampened [using felt or something]. It is very loud.

                    [SPOILER]"ugly" and "beautiful" are both subjective of course. Just my personal taste.[/SPOILER]

                      Congrats, Suit! Welcome to the XTk Klub!

                      ALL of the plastic studs broke off?? I don't see any other damage, how can that be? Better yet, how do you plan to fix that?

                          Hey, you can't by any chance hook up a keyboard to that and play a given sample polyphonically can you?

                          It seems like its made mainly for sequencing and manipulation, but I figured I'd ask....

                            Congrats! I just ordered one today. And a Reamp.

                            octatrack + monomachine mkII + live 8 + samples = crap.

                              Crap...... this really just made me want one. The off timing polyrhythm aesthetic you can get is sort of awesome.
