*   A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL   *

merry_xmas_tony_long_music

Thank you for your continued support throughout the year and I am sorry my time has not been fully devoted to the site. I have been very busy improving my skills in the art of recording, mixing and mastering. It seems that as I have increased my skills this year so has my collection of plug-ins and I have been very pleased with the updates that Cakewalk have done to my DAW – Sonar Platinum.

As always as January 2016 fast aproaches, I look forward to NAMM. Already, the possibility of new synth from Yamaha interests me – what have they been doing for the last few years? The same goes for Access. It seems their fantastic synth the Virus has been forgotten about? The world’s financial climate has meant that we are not being flooded with new products and those that are coming our way, seem to be smaller and smaller and very plastic and lightwight – is this really what everyone wants?

Anyway enjoy Christmas Day which in England is only an hour and half away – see you in the new year – Tony x

Forget Christmas – January is the Month for Music Makers

January is my Christmas with the anticipation of what is to come. On the 15th January, Roland are to announce their new products and from the 23rd to 26th January 2014 we have the famous Namm show from Anaheim Convention Centre, 800 West Katella Avenue Anaheim, CA 92802.

So what are we likely to see in 2014? Will it be something new from access like a Ti 3 or something outstanding from Yamaha to put to bed the MOTIF and MOX series for good. I am sad to see the undeveloped Roland Fantom 8. In my opinion there is nothing like it out there. It had so much potential. I truly hope that if Roland bring out another 88 note synth it has a fantastic piano action keyboard like the Fantom 8 unlike the MOTIF or the Kronos who quite frankly should supply a much better key action for the cost.
