40 at last! I feel a certain sense of achievement at reaching the next milestone in our series - not that it means anything particular - I'm sure 50 or 100 will be more portentious. But it brightened up my day, so you can allow me a small "yippee!"
This week is the first post MESSE podcast, so we dedicate this episode to talk of things that were announced at the show.
Joining me on the virtual Sonic State sofa - or couch if you're in the US - are PJ Tracy from Minneapolis in the US - a composer and experienced musician/studio owner, Dave Spiers instrument designer and musician from the prestigious software house - GForce Software and also Mark Tinley - long time engineer and sound artist with Duran Duran amongst others.
Topics this week are: Chris Stone and Audio Impressions DVZ instruments, John Bowen's Solaris synth, Jazz Mutant's Dexter DAW control personallity for the touchscreen, Akai's MPK 49 and keyboards with good action (or not), Roland's latest affordable V-Drum kit, drum libraries in general, TC's latest effects pedals, KORE2 and more.
Note We're taking a break from recording next week but will be posting our interview with John Bowen to plug the gap.
