Well, of course it depends on what gig, and for what band/project
In 2004 I did 4 months in Central America playing techno with only a CS-6X/mc-505/ms2000 and a laptop
But for rock and roll, I like to travel light...
I can sit in with any band with my trusty CS-6x and a VK-8m.
For the first time ever my set-up/tear-down is faster than a guitar player!
Anyone got any cool live shots with these monster rigs?
Here's me in Guatemala City, notice the bar-table keyboard stand!
I don't take any stands with me, just 2X 32kg's check-in luggage! I put my clothes in the keyboard cases...
Also note the bored hombre's in the background, I said I play in CA, I didn't say I was a big draw.
Mostly I played on stage between local DJ's, and even if I could bring more gear, it's a hassle.
I'd love to do more gigs with huge rigs like the old days mid-90's in Vancouver. I once had 13 synths in a big circle at a booze-can...but they stayed there through the week, the club was only open Saturdays.
Anyone from BC here?
