Sounds way better than my crummy old Samson.


What's cheaps? Just curious. I want a mixer, but I want one with aux sends and returns like the Roland M-120 or M-160. I want to be able to start using my OTB effects again.

Can you still find those Roland rack mixers on the 'Bay? When they first came out, I came *this* close to buying one, but the price tag finally said, "no". :cry: But that was many, many moons ago.

Nice!!

EP: yeah and they go for about 100-200 dollars depending on condition. I think they're probably worth the money.

I'm pretty sure it's in September, you should come; he wants me to unveil the Ms20 maxi there.

I was actually planning to go to his studio this weekend, but if I work Sunday I'll never swing it.

I think I might be able to finish the prototype if I go though.

We'll come to KnobCon and you can play it.


Anyway, I'm working all weekend, so I won't be finishing it yet, maybe by the end if the month though.


I'll send you a pic when I do.

Um. You need to show it to the entire Treehouse, thankyouverymuch. You know we've been on pins and needles since you "announced" it.

Yeah. But Teh Wyfe has taken in some contract work and I've had a cold, so with trying to make the kids do the extra housework and the coughing and the schmelkus, I just can't be arsed to report yet.

Oh yeah I also had to do this.

Here's some stuff from my latest visit to Teh Fest.


Image
They got a new playground implement.


Image
Anderton DAWed with some kind of twangy-stick controller.


Image
Phatty phatty phat phat.

I know: a lackluster report. I must confess that I didn't have as much fun as I have in the past. It was mostly due to the fact that I took Guitar Boy and three of his bandmates this year. I don't know why I thought I'd get any sleep in a hotel room with four post-adolescent Rock Stars™. They made us late the first day, we overslept the second day, and they got bored before the end and I was too fashed to argue about leaving early.

Oh well, they say I'll miss these times... :eyes:

In G-Boy's defense, he was in a hurry to get home and play with the Large Orange Box he purchased @ SweetFest:

It sounds really good, but not worth the $, imo. btw the Peavey isn't his but it's teh awesum, I think.



Needless to say, this one's now for sale: :lol:
