  1. Well I know that. I learned as the year went by that we probably wouldn't have gotten asked back. It meant the most to our drummer more than some other members.
  2. Go to Ebay. Usually you can get displays. https://www.ebay.com/itm/LCD-Screen-for-Korg-Wavestation-A-D-EX-01-W-01R-W-T1-T2-T3-Display-Panel/323351785685?hash=item4b4944b0d5:g:3JUAAOSw2PtaoV4J
  3. The M1 by far because of it's impact on Reggae and Tejano music. Some guys still have them in their rigs and they still have a decent residual. Someone at Korg told me when the O1W came out in the 1990's they had to cancel tons of orders for M1. I have M1 stuff in my Kronos and I still go to it for certain things. Stuff like the 41 piano and Cloud nine 60 patches are legendary.
  4. It is hard think to judge but I came off nice to him. I guess I get to the point where I don't believe anything people are saying till we are actually booked. I really believe some people have a certain anxiety around bands that they may have promised things to.
  5. How you do guys take/deal with being overlooked or not doing events that normally would be no brainers. Last year we did a benefit for a Children’s Hospital across the street from the research building I work in. We are all part of the same company and hospital system and everything. It went well and the promoter said we would be back this summer, well we didn’t get asked. I have mutual friends with the promoter. I did go this year and ran into him with our group of friends and he acted really awkward when he saw me. I blew it off. Normally I don’t care but the band liked the gig last year and felt it was good for exposure in a conservative suburb where our music doesn’t necessarily “fit”. As I hung out throughout the day it struck me that in fact we would have done well and been a good fit for this festival. I wasn’t so sure last year. It’s two days and a lot of bands are there. Most don’t entertain that well but some are really good. You play for free but the stages are massive and you can eat and drink for free. I did feel we were sidelined a little but I understand giving other people a chance. How do you guys navigate this type of feeling? It gets political and most bands around here are clickish. A lot don’t play nice in the sandbox. I had to tell some of my members there isn’t some band utopia where everyone gets along when I first announced we didn’t get asked to them at practice. I really don’t want to have a case of “sour grapes” but it’s hard not to feel sidelined.
  6. Well I pulled the trigger on a CP88 Monday night and got a good deal. I will keep the Forte but this will be good for certain situations like the Americana band I play for.
  7. He has a killer band though and I really decent guy it seems like.
  8. I think that also. As long as your ahead of the curve you can kind of have a say in things and how the outcome might be.
  9. Yeah looks like I will get a CP88 in the near future. It's either that or a Kronos.
  10. I did one and it was boring as hell. You are wallpaper the most of the time.
