The last of my pictures are now up at fdiskc. Once again, go here and menu to NAMM Shows->winter->2005-2009->2009.
I’ll continue backfilling the NAMM blog posts here tomorrow. For now, I need some sleep for a change. Enjoy!
Towards the end of the day on Thursday, I was running around outside in the halls looking to meet up with friends, and was confronted with this horrific sight:
The Noisebug booth was full of these balloons Buchla and Associates had made for the show.
I’d never thought of the 200e as particularly “epicurean”, but maybe someone else feels differently…
except for the Mothership, apparently.
John Bowen had a much more complete version of his Solaris synthesizer, in black and white varieties. This thing is sounding great, and looking nearly done!
The Moog Foundation is planning a museum for all of the archived information they have collected. They say they have the building already picked out and ready to go, so now they’re working on the design. Here’s a picture of the posterboard they had up of the current design.
This guy was going around the show dressed as some scary hybrid between KISS and Elvis. His belt buckle said “Elviss”, I suppose that makes sense.
partied a little too hard the last couple days, so I’ve been slow giving updates. Filling in now so long as I have battery power (John Wayne Airport seems to be particularly lacking in power sources, shame on them!)
Sonic Core, son of Creamware, has a new product, the PCI-e or Cardbus connected Xite-1, this is edited with the Scope platform software you may be familiar with if you’re a Pulsar user. They claim 10x the horsepower of the previous Scope cards.
Great new book brought to you by the folks from schneidersbuero, about several modern analog synth designers, both as creators of products we love and as musicians. I haven’t had a chance to take a close look yet, but I love the concept, and I hope to review it here later.
