  3. I am selling an Akai MPK25 USB Midi Keyboard that is in excellent condition. I am trying to get $190 for it right now since it is in great condition. I bought this sometime last fall and have not used it much since. In fact it is sitting in my closet at home boxed up in all the original packaging and has been doing so for the past few months. I really have not had much time to take it out and play around with it, even though it's such a fun tool for recording. It can be used with various recording programs, and comes with a cd to install the software for hooking it up. Very easy! Also comes with a free demo of Ableton Live which gives you full access to the entire program without the ability to save your work. Ableton is loads of fun and works very well with the keyboard. As far as the keyboard, it comes with 25 keys, 12 drum pads, 12 knobs (full rotational, never-ending), two mod wheels, as well as a bunch of buttons for various features and a bright lcd screen to display information. In ableton you can assign anything to the drum pads and jam out a beat, and each knob can be assigned to whatever you choose. Just click one button, select the output you'd like to control, then twist the knob and you're set. You can reassign knob after knob and go crazy! The keyboard will come with a short usb cable for hooking it up to the computer. There are also various outputs for midi devices, but I haven't messed with these at all. But apparently you can hook all sorts of midi instruments up to it, and control more stuff than just your computer. Overall it's a really versatile instrument, and can do loads of {censored} that's just amazing. Currently it resides at my home in Newton, NJ while I'm away at college at Rutgers in New Brunswick, NJ but I can go home to retrieve it and bring it down here, or I can go up there on a weekend and meet you there. Whatever you please. Also if you'd like to meet at a train station linked to New Brunswick I can do this as well. The train station runs right through New Brunswick and is really easy to get on, so I have no problem meeting you somewhere along the path it takes. I can also ship it out, you pay shipping. I can get an estimate if you send me your zip code. Let me know if you have any questions, and I'll be happy to answer them.

  5. Can someone enlighten me on the sound on sound function that's built in to the RE-301. I know what it does (I think), it's just a loop basically, right? How long does it run for, and how do you end it? Thanks!
  6. Today my Tech 21 Boost R.V.B. arrived, and I will say the Verbzilla is heading to Ebay soon. The Tech 21 has such a nicer, more full sound; the Verbzilla sounds weak compared to it. Spring Reverb does not work so well on the Tech 21, but all in all, a great reverb sound. I'll have to get something else or a different amp for spring reverb. I'm gonna miss the Octo setting as well. But the Tech 21 wins it with some analog circuity, volume boost, and it can self-oscillate!
  7. Tech 21 Boost RVB is where it's at. Just ordered one, to compare with the Verbzilla.
  8. I am selling a moog ep-2 expression pedal. It's in great condition, however when you have the pedal all the way back (as in having no effect on) and you take your foot off, it slips forward a little bit. So if you want to get 0% effect and leave it there, it's not gonna happen. It could be an easy fix, or maybe it's just not broken in yet (I hardly used the pedal). So, make an offer, I'll sell it cheap because of the problem.
  9. can anyone comment on the holier grail vs the verbzilla? i've heard the holier grail sounds much more organic, less digital, but will it cover everything that i use on the verbzilla (cave sounds?, long reverb sounds?). i assume the spring would sound better on the holier grail, but the hall and room sounds i'm not sure.
  10. Hey, I'm thinking of getting a new reverb pedal soon, and need some suggestions on what to get. First off, currently I'm using the Verbzilla. I mostly use the Spring and Cave alot, and sometimes the Tile/Room, Hall, and Octo. I think I could do without the Octo, cause I could recreate similar sounds with other pedals I plan on getting. Also, I should mention while I do play guitar, I also plan on using it for other instruments/samples as well. I mainly sample and loop stuff, then re-sample, so no pedals built around guitar. Also, the more control over parameters, the better. I've been searching on here for tons of comparisons and reviews of reverb pedals. I really don't have a clue what to get. I may even just end up keeping the Verbzilla, but I'd like to see what else I can get. I do like long reverbs, as I've used them heavily before for ambient music, but I'm sure with re-sampling things now, I could re-process a reverb'd sound continually to make it longer and longer. I'm debating if I need stereo or not. Because I'm sampling, I'm thinking of laying off any stereo effects/ panning, until the end result. So any recommendations? I've recently become more of a fan of EHX so maybe one of the Holy Grails would work nicely but I've heard things against them before. Thanks!
  11. I have recorded through my pathfinder 15r as well - you can run the line out to record, and just hook up some headphones (or even just a cable) to the headphone jack to cancel the speaker. Works well that way. Awesome idea, never thought of that. Maybe I'll just try this and put a preamp after the amp. I still don't get why I can't just go straight into a preamp without using the amp, but I've never used a preamp before, and I don't know much about them.
