  1. Skunk SE V5 is working nicely.

    For those who are looking for me:

    I'm still here, I'm just going through a rough patch with loved ones. The people most dearest to me are in major crisis right now.

    I can't wait for 2020 to be over with.

    :(

  2. Today I found an old "Yamaha DX9 Synthesizer" at a local pawnshop for $120... This will be my fifth retro synthesizer I have along with the "Casio CZ 5000", the "Roland JX-8P, and three other rack modules. Along with an "Atari ST 520" just in case I need a retro computer to control these instruments, slowly but progressively building up for an in-house studio.

      I have a TX81z rack module I found at a thrift-store a couple of years back... I'm working on getting my hands on another kind of DX synth with more capabilities on it. The DX9 was a cheap and easy buy so I grabbed it.

  3. I got this at my front door Monday and I'm super happy about it... It's the "Roland DJ 808 Controller" and it looks fantastic... It's something for me to play with from time to time.

      Yea... Have you heard of the new "Roland 707 Groovebox"...? Someone had suggested getting this one, but I'd already made plans for the "DJ-808 Controller", but it looks very cool. I remember reading about the "Groovebox" back in college around 98 or 99. Always wanted one but never really got one; I was just getting into software based music in 98 using a mod tracker style program to put all of the sounds together. It was a lot of fun doing it that way... It felt like I'd discovered a new way to make music. lol

  4. I just updated my "Cover Photo" for the first time with a picture of my "Roland JD-XA Synthesizer"... The keyboard functions much cooler than it looks please believe that; it was worth every dime.

      Another synth lover!

      Lol... Yea it does kind of feel like I'm collecting synthesizers these days. I use to be a comic book collector, but looks like I've swap one thing for another now. 😄 My first vintage synth was the "Casio CZ"; since then I've acquired a few more synth like the "Roland JX-8P", the "Roland System 8", the "Roland FA-08 Workstation", the "Korg MR1" module, the Yamaha PSR 500, and a some "Yamaha DX" derivative module I can't think of the name of... Trying to build a dream studio for myself. :D
