    Korg Minilogue XD

    I'm really liking the sounds of it! I don't care for the small keys on the XD, and of course no aftertouch, but I think I'd enjoy the overall small form, just handy play around with. I could always use a controller (I don't know if aftertouch is sensed or it could be mapped to something else) if...

    What Are Your Favorite Soft Synths?

    Starting to learn more about my U-he Zebra 2. Crazy powerful and I plan to invest more time in learning it than some of the others I have (I have NI Komplete some Arturia stuff). Edit: Since it was asked in the OP, the ones in NI that I've messed around with a bit are Kontour and Prism or Spark...

    Monologue plus Minilogue? Redundant?

    Sounds good to me! Like having a 5 voice "kinda bi-timbral" keyboard. Bass on the Mono, chords on the Mini or chords on the mini and lead on the mono. +1 what GovSilver said above, too.

    Do-it-all "pro" level keyboard - Roland DS88, Yamaha, Korg Krome or something else?

    IME, "semi-weighted" = synth type keyboard. I can't recall anything I would call "in between" other than maybe a cheap "weighted" piano keybed like on Guitar Center's Williams piano line. Aside from those that are on really inexpensive keyboards, some semi-weighted keyboards feel pretty nice to...

    Behringer announces OB-Xa clone

    I had an OB-SX (a presets only Oberheim) in the early '80s. One of the patches sounded perfect to me for Prince's 1999. I happened to listen to a Youtube video the other day comparing the OB-6 with the Prophet 6 (without looking!) and was surprised that every time I particularly liked the sound...

    UAD Apollo Twin DUO w/Thunderbolt cable ~ SOLD ~

    SOLD Like new. $625. Paypal OK. Set up but never really used except to listen to stuff through my monitors. I had just put together a little audio recording setup but then had to vacate the house I was living in. Now I'm starting to sell off some of the equipment until I am able to get...

    Well said, Brian. Great thread. _

    Interesting mix of pop, jazzy prog, funky rhythms, avant garde...

    I was a HUGE fan of Dave Steward & Barbara Gaskin, and when I first heard Louis & Genevieve (Knower) I was really curious if Louis was influenced by Dave... I think these two have done a couple of originals but I'm so ignorant of popular music I don't really know for sure... _

    Guitarist with the most class you've met...

    I haven't met many at all, but Frank Gambale was super nice. A true gentleman. Allan Holdsworth was nice too, but he looked a bit like he was scared of me LOL (I'm tall, but friendly/goofy looking) Or maybe he thought I looked like an alien from outer space :rotflmao I was embarrassed when I...

    So you don't like the blues...what DO you like?

    To me the blues has always been "o.k." - sometimes I would hear some I liked. There are a couple of genres I don't care for at all... to be honest, opera is something I've never liked. Except for the Overture to Fledermaus which I love! Oh wait.. that doesn't have any singing in it, does it? :D...

    The B-52's - Love Shack!!!!

    Yes, thank you for posting that! Great insight and touching. That's it!! That was my part (along with guitar, which was a challenge) and I loved doing it. I totally dug the song, and can be a bit of a ham so I did it without fear :D It was one of the most fun songs we ever did!! _

    The B-52's - Love Shack!!!!

    Absolutely loved playing Love Shack!! I was on guitar and got to do the Fred Schneider vocal part. SO much fun!!! I don't know anything about the "eras" of the B-52s… just know I dug the hell out of some of their songs! :) ^^ I freekin' LOVE this song!!! Always liked this one too...

    Interesting mix of pop, jazzy prog, funky rhythms, avant garde...

    Not even sure how you'd describe it. I just think this music is kind of intriguing. The more I've listened since learning of them a few years back the more I like them. I wasn't familiar with this song… I never heard the original until after seeing this a few times. I think it's pretty...

    Dream gig, joke salary... what would you do?

    Chick Corea and Hiromi

    It's interesting you ask that. The performance here is almost an hour long. Someone posted the first song from this performance here, and I get winded just listening to that one song (I've Got Rhythm by George Gershwin). Endurance like this more than a little mind-boggling to me... The second...

    If you like Hiromi...

    I have Another Mind (different players, I know), Brain, and the DVD with the songs from Spiral (among other CDs & DVDs!). I really love the group with Tony Grey and Martin too. Sonicbloom of course, as well! I would love to see them together again. Tony would love to play with her again too I...
