Another A Designs rack filled with outboard processors (compression, EQ and summing mixer)...

Moog was there too...

 

fetch?filedataid=120354

 

 

It may be called "Mini", but in the history of synthesis, this keyboard's a giant!

Another giant... both physically and historically - a Moog Modular...

 

fetch?filedataid=120356

 

 

There are more modern Moogs too...

Cloud displayed their world-class ribbon microphones as well as their extremely useful Cloudlifter preamps, including the new Cloudlifter Zi...this is a transformer-based DI that does for guitars what the standard Cloudlifter does for mics. It's supposed to be available in time for NAMM.
