Give me hardware any time

I use a computer all day in work, and the idea of staring at a screen to make music in my spare time would drive me insane. For sequencing I use a Roland MC300 that I picked up second hand too many years ago to remember. It does everything I need and I very rarely run out of onboard memory. I saw Jo...

PSS-480

My first keyboard was a PSS-480, and I thought that it was far more capable than it looked. Yes, it was a home keyboard with mini keys, but the drum pads were handy (32 different sounds, touch sensitivity, rhythm programming) plus it had a nifty little sequencer/recorder and you could program patche...

That's a great deal.

I always wanted an M1, and finally got one from eBay for about £120. I love it to bits - it simply sounds huge, and the patches have plenty of depth. Some of the patch buttons are a little easy to push out of place, but there you go.

Please help me get my head straight about recording

Hello all, I'm new here and the following might seem glaringly obvious, but I need to double-check my plans before I part with any cold hard cash. My current set-up features a Korg M1 and Yamaha DX11 (plus a couple more keyboards that I'll be getting rid of), and I'm looking for some extra modules a...
