So, What'd Santy Bring Ya?

Postby Plink Floyd » Sat Jan 01, 2011 9:34 pm

I got one of these, complete with nifty cover as shown:

and, even better, the CFO has agreed to allocate funds for hiring someone besides me to hang and finish the drywall in the basement. Yay!

Also, this Kawai M8000 hammer controller has re-appeared at the local Goodwill.com auction site. It sold last month for a few hundred, but now it's back. The purchaser probably though it was busted because it didn't make any sounds. I'ma bid on it this time...

i'm really enjoying my mac, Monday the other stuff comes in. I just bought a bluetooth dongle for my mac and the reception is shitty, but I think it's the receiver. I may just need to get a bluetooth enable stereo for in here when im interneting. I also got an ableton live 8 book and magnum pi shirt.

Things are good. I've really enjoyed the holidays this year. More quality, less quantity.

I got a Stylophone, lol.
I also got a box that says "Moog" on it. :eek: But I ain't saying what it is yet. :p
Santa also brought me a cool little RC helicopter, which was fun until I rammed it into the coffee table and busted some little plastic thingie, and now it wobbles like mad. :mad:

And the customary articles of clothing, of course.

Ensoniq Mirage, 8 bits of beautiful mono(output)grit!
Had to bring the old Alesis Midiverb ll out of retirement to get a nice stereo pan on it.
In a side by side taste test it beat my Lexicon MX200 as far as warmth goes.
Btw, that thingy to the right is an old log for Mr Kitty(Miki) to rub his paws on.

We retired the larger tree this year, gave it to the Salvation Army, and went with total simplicity. Setup time was 1 minute. :love:

My Executive Holiday Hall Decker would never stand for such sensibilities. "We'll have this house ByGod Bedazzled and Santashape by December 1st or you'll all be picking antlers out of yer Ho Ho HOs!" :mad: Srsly, she has transatlantic containers full of the shit! It's pretty festive, though. :lol:

Indeed. Thing is, I'm not sure I'm gonna keep it yet. 'Twas a gift.

Prohint: it has antennas and comes in pieces.

Yeah? You think so? Hmmm... I dunno. I don't know if I have the patience to learn a new instrument. :lol: But it might be fun to build.

I got clothes.

...and the green light to buy me a computer for a new recording setup when taxes come in... if I am up for it. Which I am still considering (I shiver thinking about moving mixing with all knobs and sliders having to be dealt with a mouse... I luvz my mixer...)

Noooooooo don't do it! You need to keep the rest of us grounded by staying in the analog domain! Besides, computers and DAWs will eat your brain. No joke. You brain will become a frustrated mass of zombie chow.

Clav has me MOSTLY convinced to keep it. I'm still wavering a bit... I could trade it in for something more attractive maybe, but... I don't really NEED anything else. :facepalm:

I will have one someday. Have you ever played one? I think it's about the most fun you can have without touching something...

Is it the one with midi?

Nope, never played one. I expect my attempts will sound... bad. :lol: I don't recall if it has a MIDI port on it, I'll have to see. I imagine it would just be a MIDI IN, right? I can't imagine how they'd manage MIDI OUT with the continuous ranges that the pitch/volume work with.
