Some more gear:

Allen & Heath ZED-24 24-Channel Mixer with USB Interface
Warm Audio TB12 Tonebeast Microphone Preamp
Furman M-8Lx Standard Level Power Conditioning, 15 Amp, 9 Outlets with Wall Wart Spacing, Pullout Lights

While the new studio in still being built, I've rewired the existing studio and have been playing around with things a bit more lately. I'd like to work out a new song and actually record something in the near future. We'll see...

I thought I'd make a quick list of gear on my wishlist.

Roland MKS-50
Groovebox, either Roland MC-505/909 or Yamaha RM1x
I saw a Crumar DP-50 on CL for $250
Sherman Filterbank
Some sort of controller to easily edit the gear I already have

Picked up a Yamaha Motif ES8! Also a month or so ago I got a Roland JX-8P, a classic analog synth I've wanted for a while. The ES8 is 88 keys and takes up so much room I had to temporarily remove the Virus TI, Nord Electro 2 and Roland XP-60 from the studio to clear up space. It would be nice to have time to actually use all this wonderful gear...

I can't fit any more text in my profile, but just wanted to post to say I recently bought an E-Mu Carnaval (for awesome Latin sounds!) and E-Mu Planet Phatt, the first of the 'Phatt' series for hip-hop/trip-hop sounds. The Carnaval is working really well so far, although I am having some problems with the Planet Phatt. When I play it through a MIDI keyboard, all the patches keep re-triggering like 30 times a second so everything sounds like "ga-ga-ga-ga-ga-ga-ga". I might have a setting wrong somewhere, I just hope it's not the hardware :(

In other news, I am hoping to replace the internal battery on my Ensoniq SQ-80 in the next few days. I just received the new battery in the mail and just have to find the time to solder it in.

All that said, it looks like I won't have any real time to actually USE any of these new synths in the near future, and I don't even have the mixer/MIDI splitter space to permanently hook any of these up. So it may be a while before new tracks are posted. We'll see.
