I saw Bootsy Collins at NAMM (the blurb on the blurry picture) and that got me thinking: do you guys know about the funk? Oh, you mean you were looking to actually learn something of value from this website? How about learning about making funk. Below are two pdf’s that will get you at least [...]
There’s always some crazy shit being shown at trade shows. Here are a few of the ones I saw at NAMM.
Softube and Marshall. My trip to the US has been pretty cool. I’ve met a drunk bartender who wanted us to go party with Tenacious D, hung out with some great engineers and producers, heard studio anecdotes about Alice Cooper and Lemmy, talked to Mikkey Dee without knowing it was him, seen some cool stuff, [...]
I always try to report from the Avid/Digidesign booth at when I cover trade shows that I attend but this year I don’t have much to say. I’ve already told you about the updated instruments, aside from that there wasn’t much new from Avid at NAMM. Their booth was pretty much just benches set up [...]

The controller wasn’t finished yet but I did get the chance to fiddle with the knobs a little bit. It’s no plastic crap and doesn’t look anything [...]
As promised, here’s the video of Steven Slate from Slate Digital showing the upcoming Virtual Console Collection. For more opinions about it, check out my previous post. Slate Digital
A video of Steven Slate from Slate Digital showing Trigger, a new drum replacement tool. I never use this kind of stuff, but if you do, let us know what you think about it.
I met up with Colin McDowell from McDSP at NAMM and had him show me the new Ultimate Compressor (previous post) and the new interfaces for FilterBank and CompressorBank.
