I didn't know Stephen Fry was Jeeves :eek:

I asked because even though the specs say something, sometimes in real life the difference just isn't that noticeable. But if you don't have experience with both of them to make a comparison, that's ok, I just thought I'd ask :) But I guess the numbers are impressive enough that I shouldn't consider DDR2 at all.

So the guy doesn't even have installation disks for Lion which he says is installed in the machine. Sounds like a stolen computer, honestly :facepalm:

Noooooooo.

Well the CDC shut down the bird flu program so .... not exactly :lol:

but really, no, same one.

I had asked a few questions about it and the guy running the auction just hit me with a huge sob story about how GC wouldn't give him anything for it and this that and the other, how much would I offer etc. He needs to get it sold..

I dunno, sounded kinda funny after the fact. But the guy could have needed money and was worried the auction would tank for less than he wanted too .. :idk: he seemed in a hurry which is what made me suspicious. I was nervous as hell until i got the synth though.

Then I'd be obsessing over tools in a different trade and still not get anything done? Is that what you want? :grin:

So, if you pick woodwork, can I have your synths? I'll get you a shipment of timber for it...



AHHHH COLD FEET

What if I sold basses and guitar and keep recording equipment and invest what I already got in a DR-880 + MC909 + analog monosynth?

Someday (ahhhh someday) I'll be finished with these house projects, we'll sell, find a new place with a Most Excellent Studio Room, and then i can have all my toys spread around again.

...someday.

No really, when you're making such radical changes, it can't hurt to bounce it off other people who share the interest.

Like, I couldn't ask my wife "Hey, for my Leslie 770 project, do you think I should get a stock crossover and use the tube amp from my 225 cabinet, or breadboard a bi-amp crossover and use the two solid state amps that already came with the 710?" She'd say "gtfo".

"And take the trash".

So, my Fusion has been gone for a day, and I've now found an 8HD (88 keys) that I might get for 500 bucks locally.
I can get that and sell my A-90 controller for 400 and I'll have a Fusion controller for a 100 bucks investment, which is what I got back in the Maschine deal.

I'm thinking about dropping the idea of buying monitors, and going with a set of AKG-K702 headphones instead (or something similar in quality, if not better) for a couple of reasons:
. I'd have to buy a decent sub for the monitors and that would just add to the cost (or I could get bigger monitors)
. My room's untreated. And since it's long and narrow I don't know how easily I can fix this without spending more money than I should.

Am I crazy?

I don't think you're crazy. I do nearly all my stuff through headphones, a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770. They're quite comfy and I haven't noticed any hearing fatigue.
