Namm 2013 – Enough of the Girls, let’s look at the Baby – The Korg MS-20 Mini Analog Synth:-

I played drums with a band that had the original MS-20, the bass sound was awesome and aggressive and I haven’t heard anything that good for a few years.

Roland BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad


Its Namm 2013 and Roland for the first time have decided to let us know about their new products early before the doors at NAMM are open.

The first product that caught my eye (mainly because I have been interested in buying something similar for some time now), is their new BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad.

Yamaha used to make one and the most solid looking one I have seen is made by an American company called Hart Dynamics called a Hammer but you cannot buy these sadly in the UK.

So exactly whart are they? For me they are a requirement for electronic drummers so that they can play cowbells, wood blocks, snare rims and metallic sounds like irons and anvils where you dont need a whole drum pad necessarily (especially a mesh head pad) and would rather hit something harder and smaller that can fit in with your existing setup.

Kaskade feat. Skylar Grey – Room For Happiness

It is time for a bit more music. I stumbled accross this song which has a clip with some nice gear in – the synth, the Native Instruments Maschine and the Korg padKONTROL are not bad either. Taken from the album called FIRE & ICE by KASKADE the California-based producer, songwriter and DJ. It reminds me of a FROU FROU track very catchy – see what you think:-

Well this is what you may have seen at last years NAMM show. I wonder if there will be a repeat performance this year from the lovely Iron Maidens at Namm 2013. We don’t have much in the way of guitar stuff on this website so I thought as a great advert to Roland’s GT100 pedal board, many Boss pedals and Boss eBand Audio Player with effects. There are some great Riffs and lead breaks as the girls jam along but who in their right mind is watching the guitar playing ??????

NAMM 2013 – The New Stylophone S2 analog synthesizer

Here is something that I am sure you will find at Namm 2013 next week – the New Stylophone S2 analog synthesizer which is also featured on Brett Domino’s ‘Beauty And A Beat’ – excellent title. If you want to start your day with some fun, have a look at this You Tube clip, which clearly demonstrates the usefulness of the Stylophone in 2013. I quite like the drumming that is provided by bandmate Steven Peavis also as it works so well with it:-

The Stylophone S2 packs loads of features which include the old traditional Stylophone metal keyboard, but now it is 3 octaves long and playable with an included wire-free stylus or by finger touch. It has a all analogue signal path, a British style 12dB/octave state-variable filter, dual all-transistor voltage controlled oscillators, sub-oscillators for ‘super-fat’ bass, eight waveform LFO with a 14 octave range, an auxiliary-input to use the filter and envelope-generator for other instruments, 1/4” output jack socket, internal speaker and headphone socket and CV and Trigger input sockets. You will be able to pick one up for £299 which is $479.
