I've always fancied a pair of KRK's myself but if I had a bit of extra dosh, I'd plump for a set of Mackie 824s.
I haven't been disappinted Smiley
Good gear shouldn't take away your beer...

I tried to buy KRK RP6 monitors but I couldn't get a pair without build issues. When the second replacements went phut at high volume (nearly giving me a bluey in the process) I decided to call it a day.

Yesterday, I ordered one of these...



I went to York on Monday (Railway Museum is still awesome after 10 years of absence!) and had a quick widdle on that Microkorg XL I was intending to buy. Didn't like the build quality one bit and my small, fat, stubby fingers didn't go well with the tiny keys.

So, I have reverted to my original plan. I should have it sometime next week!  Grin

Cool... but what about your grant ? Or do you now intend to live outside until next year  Smiley

 Shocked

I sincerely hope you wiped it down afterwards.

I used to have a bigger sig but Robert kept moaning about it so I have been reduced to this now. Sad

Saw this gizmo advertised in SoundOnSound magazine. Don't know if finding a rehearsal space is an issue for the band (prolly harder just to get everyone together these days) but this looks like it could help if noise is a problem...provided that the drummer is using an e-kit (or Handsonic wotsit) and the singer doesn't have to get too shouty.

No, it's nothing to do with jam and they don't make a nutellahub...sadly...

Yeah I've seen similar bits of kit in the past (although not as specialised). They are dead handy if you struggle with good rehearsal facilities.

This side of the year smiles particularly kindly on grants and various ammounts of money - it's not long until the next payment!  Grin  Cue inevitable grumblings about the government and kids who "don't know they're born these days"...  Tongue

However, I will be saving all forthcoming money (with exception to small doses I set aside for food, rent and Tinyfish at The Peel in April) to get myself one of these hopefully around September time...



Well, either that one or the X6. I need to do quite a bit of research on which one's "better". But anyways! A Fantom will be mine, all miiiiiiiiine! *Evil genious laughter*

Well, you can see what Mouse has done there, he's simply taken the "in" off "ingenious".  Shame English doesn't work that way. But as your splendid link informs us, James, "only a genious can spell 'genious' correctly..."  Grin

I think the Fantom is Jem's weapon of choice onstage, I could be wrong. He always did have a thing for Roland gear.  Wink

You're not wrong - he's dabbled with V-Synths and such like but always in addition to the Fantom.
A G6 is the current 'flavourite' I believe.
