    Craig,

    I am ENVIOUS of all the traveling that you get to do relative to your career. Although I suppose, at times, there are instances where required travel would not be so exciting; but... experiences like the one you have just shared helps to pave the way a bit for those not so enviable.

    I would really love to be able to tour the world and visit instrument manufacturing plants of all different types; from woodwinds, pianos, violins, brass, guitars, and all other types... to things as simple as moraccos. There is an art and science that goes into the making of quality instruments. As does the wood that goes into the making of a classical violin or guitar make all the difference in the world in sound quality; I'm sure the same holds true for the components assembled inside of electronic devices.

    Japan would be an awesome place to tour with their marketplace in electronics. I would like to see the brainstorming that goes into the mapping of circuitry for new designs; it would be even cooler to see those ideas implemented in real time.

    The photo of the open office environment reminds me much of the way my office was set up while detailed at the U.S. Treasury Dept when the USPS still had a physical station located at the U.S. Treasury Dept. The offices at the USPS are set up with cubicles in an open environment, but the walls are more at a standing shoulder height than a setting shoulder height. One thing is for sure, there is NO privacy unless you move to a conference room. Conference rooms require scheduling and advanced booking in most instances...

    Your anxiety in teasing us about new product releases reveals that you are excited about the upcoming series of instruments ready to hit the market; your excitement invites great anticipation for those that are waiting for you to unveil the "secret ammo" that you SO want to tell us about.

    I'm glad you had a great time in Japan...

      Dude, if you want software get a computer, if you want a 'real' instrument, get a keyboard.



      But dude...!!!

      I stand by my remark. If the synth/keyboard manufacturers don't change how they do things, someone will change it for them and they'll be a generation behind.
      In fact, in a sense they already are - how many keyboard players use laptops already? They have a very small window of opportunity here to curtail the avalanche, but the angle of repose is pretty visible...

      Dude!

              Actually, it's all exciting, and all an adventure to me...even those seminar tours I've done with nights spent at the local Red Roof Inn. I learn so much from being in other locations and communing with other people -- the more different, the better.

              One time I was at a restaurant in a country where not only did I not know the language, I couldn't even fake knowing it, and no one at the restaurant spoke English. I figured out there were headings on the menu, which I assumed corresponded to appetizers, entrees, etc....and figured that they wouldn't deliberately put something horrible on the menu, like fried sand So I just pointed at a couple random things to see what would show up.

              To this day I don't know what I was served, but it was pretty good!
