Definition of BIANNUAL

: occurring twice a year I'm pretty sure I meant biannual. But you'll get a pass for owning so many cool synths.
Wow, don't I look like a dumbass! But semiannual is also right. I just assumed that biannual would mean every 2 years just like bimonthly & biweekly mean every 2 months or weeks.

Thanks for the pass :)

OK, back to our regularly scheduled topic about a lame-a*s piece of s**t keyboard.

If it's any consolation, it's also available in white and black.

Price around 30000 yen, slightly less than a microKORG (non-XL). In case anyone would want one.

gotta admit this would look pretty cool on stage. gimmicky yes but still a cute thing if you only need a couple of piano sounds in your set.

now what they need to do is have a monotron built into it to make it some form of adorable little ondes martenot type thing.

Ha ha, yeah. Despite the miniature keys, I'm sure they went to GREAT LENGTHS to simulate real piano feel. :wink:
