I agree, Barbettas are very nice and lightweight. I own a pair and they are great. I wouldn't recommend a guitar amp. Guitar amps are voiced much differently than a PA or bass amp.

What about those firewire mixers like the Phonix? Can they be used as I/Os?

A waldorf Q or micro Q would be very good. Also a Korg MS 2000.

I know what you mean about the Edirol boards. I also had an M-Audio Radium 49 that last a year with light use. There are so many junkie controllers, so it's nice to find a good one. I guess time will tell how good this Akai is. So far it is extremely good: especially the keyboard.

Just got my MPK49 yesterday. It has exceeded my expectations. It actually is made of metal and fairly heavy. All the controls work very well. Love the Arp! The pads seem a bit stiff to play. I'm not sure if that is the way they are supposed to be on the MPC series. You really have to hit them fairly...

To me, if the controls are away from the player, then it is a sound module. If the controls are within easy reach and tweakable, then it becomes an instrument. I prefer the keyboard version for the ergonomics as well as the extra features.

There's some nice theremin work in 1951's "The Day the Earth Stood Still."

Don't forget Hitchcock's "The Birds." There is no music other than the school children singing. All the bird sounds are electronic.

I've only seen his Moog videos, and I think they're pretty good. I've picked up a tip or two from them.

I would say the MF102 ring modulator. You can get a nice a tremolo as well as the wild ring mod distortion and chimes. In addition you can utilize the LFO square/triangle CV out to modulate a the Phatty's CV in parameters. My second choice is a toss up between the CP251 and the MuRF. The CP251 has t...

I use the CP251 and VX351. It opens up a whole new sonic pallette in the Voyager. I own all the Moogers except for the 107. I think the MuRF and Ring Mod really add a lot.

If it's like my Q rack (apparently it is), it will do a pretty decent 303. It will emulate a Moog somewhat: enough to get you into the ballpark. It still has that thin digitalness to it, but in a mix it will get you by. I love mine.
