He went on the Price is Right and won a lifetime supply of batteries. He is a set man...lucky bastard. I never have batteries when I need them and luckily I never need them.
nice remix there :? 8) Duke Nukem is NEVER coming out.

If that was him in Halo he still sucked.

I'm still gunning for the kaostribe

It's so easy

multitrack sequencer with transport controls.

64 parts (ok 16 to keep it cheap)
loop sampler from Kp3
tuned samples - from ESX
R3 synthesis
PCM Drums
Sample chopper for drums
Kaos FX
magic and flashy lights

basically a KP3 mixed with a EMX-1 ESX. I guess lose half the knobs, tubes and buttons but get a larger screen with transport contols and a few encoders or faders. But use a MUCH larger touchpad - think lemur.

and make it powered by rechargeable batteries.

Can't anything that runs on regular batteries be powered by rechargeable batteries by, you know, buying rechargeable batteries and putting them in it?

If you think he sucks then this will change your mind.

If Roland were to make the V-Synth work like it's supposed to, I'd be a happy man.

I've got to ask Rocket with respect - and don't take this the wrong way please... what's the obsession with battery powered synths and things needing to be small? I've seen your studio picks and it just looks like you need to invest in a proper 2 tiered stand.
Well, for one...I'm lazy... I don't like unplugging and plugging in things all the time and live in an old apartment that has a lack of power outlets. Even with power strips...I run out of outlets quickly. With battery powered stuff...I can move things in and out with out even getting out of my seat when I record. Two teir stand? for what? My moog and my CS01? Two teirs are useless to me since I am not going to stand and play. I'm very picky and am very content with my set-up right now.

Small and battery powered is always cool IMHO... how can you diss that? I've always loved portable stuff since I was a kid... walkmans, gameboys, cameras, boomboxes, etc. I grew up with alot of battery powered toys.

By the way, I only own one battery powered synth...the CS01. I like them, but ultimately...they have to be useful.

wow that looks really cool i would just want all of my keyboards to have a rack/tabletop version put out but still with all the knobs attached. I love having minimal small setups. i just dont understand why more companies dont do this to all of their products, i mean with the way midi is now you should just have one controller linked to several desktops or rack mounts

I wasn't dissin just curious - your reasons are totally justified and cool - you've got your own style that works for you.

I guess I tend to leave all my gear connected and synched to each other rather than just working with 2 or 3 things but that's cool too.

The Kaossilator has totally won me over to battery powered gear btw - that thing looks sweet!
Regarding 2 tier stands - I do tend to stand while I write but have it so that I can easily use the gear on top from sitting down to - it's allowed me more surface space for more gear!

i hate it when, during the creative process, you have to search for the right adapter, and then make room to plug it in. also, for playing live, it's so much easier to set up when you don't have to plug everything in and deal with that many more cords on a small stage.

i'm not sure what exactly megawatt was referring to, but some synths actually charge batteries when you plug the synth. doesn't the xiosynth do this? and via usb? or am i just imagining the perfect battery powered synth now. no, in my dream, it sounded better and had an internal speaker.

ha!

some years ago my girlfriend was in an accident while riding a bicycle. she broke her collarbone among other things. the doctor prescribed this strange electro charge thing that was supposed to stimulate bone growth. the prescription came with -- i kid you not -- two boxes of 9volt batteries. two boxes. by box, i mean, like over 50 or something.

anyways, she only used a few batteries before she had finished with the machine. so she gave the boxes to me. i'm not recommending this as a strategy for meeting your electrical needs... but it will be years before i have to plug in a pedal effect, or my EH400.
