On the way out of NAMM this year, we were invited to come and see Yamaha at their nearby HQ in Buena Park. Tucked away in the endless corridors is a special room - called the Yamaha Synth Space, where there's a growing collection of Yamaha synthesizers, drum machines and other gear.
As well as being a good idea to have "one of everything", its also a facility where people can come in and record parts and samples for use in productions, though I think you need to be a little "connected" to gain access.
Thanks to Nate Tschetter from Yamaha for showing us around.
