Porsupah smile by Djinni

(no subject)

So, I picked up one of these last night, over at Guitar Center (pausing to admire Joe Satriani's exceptionally *shiny!* transparent guitar):



49 velocity-sensitive keys, USB powered, and even comes with a version of Reason - not bad for $99! Worked immediately with Garageband 2, too.

I'm not promising I'll be turning out anything listenable, though. ^_^

Edit: seems M-Audio's running a promo until the end of December - buy one of their keyboards, get three Reason ReFill packs free! But which to go for? The selection is:

Sonic ReFill Vol. 1: Synths 1
Sonic ReFill Vol. 2: Synths 2
Sonic ReFill Vol. 3: Rhythm Section
Sonic ReFill Vol. 4: Pianos and Organs
Sonic ReFill Vol. 5: Symphonic
Sonic ReFill Vol. 6: OmniSoundz GM
Sonic ReFill Vol. 7: Reality Drums
Sonic ReFill Vol. 8: Monster Drums
Sonic ReFill Vol. 9: Vintage Drums
Sonic ReFill Vol. 10: Instruments of the 60s-70s
Sonic ReFill Vol. 11: Retro Keys
Sonic ReFill Vol. 12: Acoustic Folk
Sonic ReFill Vol. 13: World Percussion
Sonic ReFill Vol. 14: Ethnic Instruments
Sonic ReFill Vol. 15: Film Orchestra
