Record Hi Quality Sound wherever you go
Tweak: Today's portable recorders are capable of excellent recordings of your life outside the studio. Great for sampling, recording a gig, and as a songwriters tool. No tapes to buy, no motors to ruin delicate recordings. Uses standard memory, and connects to a computer for easy file transfer to your recording applications. See my Review of the Zoom H4 and others
zZounds Beat Suite
Tweak: No matter what kind of music you do, including stuff no one has ever heard before, this suite can get you there. Komplete is a killer collection of software synths, samplers, virtual drum machines and effects. The Firebox is your audio interface. Comes with Cubase LE, your recording software. The MPK49 is a flexible controller that lets you play all your great new virtual instruments. Add a Mic, stand, your computer and you have a fantastic way to work.
Tweak's Take: The Most feature
rich TRUE Analog synth ever made? Hey! You know that
Virus TI, the
V-synth and the
Blofelds are NOT true analog right? Those
are "models" of analog synths. The
Moog Voyagers and
Little Phatty are true, but like my old Korg MS20, those
are 1 voice mono synths. The Alesis Andromeda is a true,
polyphonic analog synthesizer, like the old Junos and
Jupiters and Oberheims, but with modern features.
Oct 08 Tweak: $250 off factory resealed units! Plus! There is also a limited time promotion for a free GK3 pickup when you register your VG99. The pickup does not come with the VG99. Here's a chance to save big on these. Read my review.
