MOTU Timepiece II has been a solid unit for my "midiotic" rig. It's basically an 8x8 midi mixer, any input can be routed to any combination of ouputs, routable by input number and/or by midi channel. It's basically really straightforward, with a few nice features like setup recalls and globals. My o...

There's a nine page thread over at HC about live rigs and NOBODY there uses a DX7 live. Kinda makes me feel special with my old DX7II master controller. Not to mention that it holds it's own very nicely. :D.

Look up! No really. Make sure you have high confidence in the overhead pipes and you might also want to check that a first floor spill can't come thru the floor and down onto your gear.

But I still remember how the C64, waaay back in the day drove me nuts because it could not keep time! Click tracks were always lopsided (click-CLICK!-click-click-CLIC...

Not enough choices in the poll. My favorite keyboards are the Yamaha Concert Grand and the Hammond B3. Hands down. Period. Will I ever gig with either again? Highly doubtful. Enter NI B4 and Ivory, a different kind of pain for sure, but isn't that where we're going as a society? Film has just about ...
