  1. Yeah, I broke my Mojo once. . . . what are we talking about? I've had mostly the same equipment since 2008 or so. Alesis Fusion (use as a controller), the last thing I bought was an Arturia Keylab 88, I use it interchangeably with my 2 Fusions, not at the same time.

  3. Crumar Mojo 61? Wow, that looks cool. How do you like it?
  4. I would recommend updating to Windows 10. I did a couple of years ago and saw an immediate boost in performance. My live key rig is on a laptop and the load times with Windows 10 are measurably faster. I posted about it on HC and I think it was flagged as spam or something and taken down. Total BS. It was easy and free to do the update, but that was years ago. Anyway. . . I've never worked with Reaper. I know in Studio One or Sonar Home Studio with using a Tascam 1641 midi/audio interface, I've never run into many problems. From my experience midi/audio interfaces can be really flaky. I've gone through probably 3-4 different interfaces that never worked right, and banged my head against the wall trying to figure out if it was my controller or software, then finally just went back to the Tascam 1641 and everything works perfectly. I've tried other interfaces and I've not found one that works as well. I have three Tascam 1641's. You can get them on Ebay for a couple 100$.
  5. I'm a big fan of turning my keys off, mainly due to the LCD drain issue. But, I guess it depends on how long you're hoping keep your equipment. I'm not planning on making any changes to my rig for the rest of my life, 30+ years. I doubt I'll make it. I think my current key rig has only seen a couple of changes over the last 12+ years.
  6. Wait. . .what? What's "random perma-ban?" Regardless, that sounds like a lot of fun. I haven't made any changes to my rig in like 12 years! And I've not been able to come up with any reasons why I should.
  7. In my live rig I use: IK Multimedia Total Workstation Bundle, NI Vintage Organs, NI Scarbee Vintage Keys; Tyrell N6, Sylenth1 x 2, XLN Addictive Keys, NI FM8 Sylenth is by far my fav. But I use FM8 and Tyrell N6 for some things, usually during some song where I'm using my 2 instances of Sylenth for something else. The IK Multimedia stuff, Sample Tank and Sonic Synth have some good stuff if you start digging around, but those are samples. I use those for quite a few things as well. Plus I layer them all together at times to get really deeply layered and nuanced textures if necessary.
  8. Sylenth1 - I run two instances of this NI FM8 TyrellN6 Those are pretty much the only synths I use. The rest of my setup are sample players (Sample Tank, NI Vintage Organs) or modeled pianos.
  9. Definitely digging your set list. You must be 50 or so. I have loved every song in your set list at one time or another.

  11. Totally Hi-Fi. At least, as a keyboardist, I'm totally Hi-Fi. But, we're pretty much a tribute act that plays a lot of Journey and Kansas and Rush. And these are not exactly jam bands.

  13. Hmmmm. . . are you sure they are as experienced as they say? This does not sound like it to me. From my experience, people who are experienced don't want to rehearse at all. I play in two bands that never rehearse at all. It's wonderful. I would suggest, relax and just let things pan out. I would try to focus the guys on lining up some gigs or getting your demo ready to submit to booking agents/production companies, etc. In other words, don't worry about the festivals until they come.
