Monster Jamz In Ear Headphones

I was fortunate enough to win these in a competition and although initially I was a little disappointed,  as competition was for some Dr Dre headphones, and thats what I thought I had won. These Monster Jamz Headphones are what I had actually won. Once I got over my sadness of not owning the Dre’s (I have heard only good things about), I had a look at what I had in my hot little hands.

KORG KAOSSILATOR

Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer

Korg Kaossilator Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer

I picked this little marvel up about 4 weeks ago. To be honest I am still getting to grips with its capabilities but am simply stunned by its quality and power.  Sure it is easy to play and could be considered a toy with a brief encounter, but when you dig deeper its way more than that. read full article here

Ableton Live 8 and Suite 8

Create, Produce, and Perform by Keith Robinson

Ableton Live 8 and Suite 8: Create, Produce, Perform

I recently ordered this book from Amazon, as although I am getting better using Ableton Suite 8, it is a bit overwhelming as a novice user. I figured getting some outside help might make me more productive sooner. Although Ableton Live 8 is very user friendly Digital Audio Workstation(DAW), like all powerful programs their is a steep learning curve. read full article here

Technics SL-1200 mk2

I just got hold of my long desired Technics SL-1200 turntable . I have wanted one of these bad boys for many years. Now most people would want 2, but my desire has been for just 1. Why? well I have a DJ set up consisting of a Pioneer CDJ-200 and Denon DN-S3000 and Pioneer DJM-400 Mixer, that takes care of my DJ needs. I got theTechnics SL-1200 turntable to scratch with, for music production. Not being flush with cash I contacted my good friends down at DMC Records in Prahran, Lance and Stuart, who have looked after me with nearly all my music production gear. Now they advised me rather than buy a cheaper but new turntable, to get the industry standard Technics SL-1200 turntable used(2nd hand). I could have bought a new Pioneer or Numark deck through work, at cost, but I figured it was good advice, as the Technics SL-1200 turntable will hold its value and are a real workhorse, so should give me many many years of trouble free service. read full article here

SONY MZ-RH1 Minidisc

I bought this unit about 18 months ago, and  no doubt some will be thinking *why would anyone buy a minidisc these days?*, so I’ll explain. I also own a 20gb hdd sony NW-HD5 which I have owned for many years. I use this model(NW-HD5) because I found the ATRAC3plus 352kb lossless compression was the best at the time. I use the MW-HD5  unit as my main source of music in my car. Its like having my own radio station that just plays the music I love. read full article here

I have just upgraded to this latest model Asus Centrino 2 notebook. I was using a 18 month old 2ghz Asus Laptop that was incredibly reliable. I do most of my daily net tasks(like writing this blog) on my Acer netbook but use my laptop for Music production, Video editing and now some gaming. read full article here

M Audio Firewire 410 sound card

M Audio Firewire 410 sound card

This is the sound card I use. Its probably better then I need, as I don’t utilize half the features it has. I bought it because it has great sound quality, is reputedly very high quality, and reliable. Its also flexible enough to handle the various signal types I might throw at it, and small enough to be portable if I need to collaborate with anyone, or maybe use it for performance if the need ever came up. read full article here
