OK sounds good. Just let me know when you have free moments.
I'm up against trying to get a project done, finish another by March, and with the new baby, I'm not getting as much work done as I'd like to be getting done, so I'm having to sacrifice a bit of networking and social time. But trust that I WANT TO! Especially want to see your setup. It's such a beautiful room.
Funny, I grew up learning piano on a Knabe. My brother has it now. It was a 5'9" I think. My mom bought a Kawai GS-80 8'2" when I was about 12. Maybe since I spent so many years playing it, I've always thought it was the best playing. Love the low end sound of it too. Someday it'll be mine, but I don't wish that day to be any time soon. I'd rather Mom keep using it for many years first.
I'm kind of a nut for collecting samples. Admittedly. I have the EW/QL Plat pro & XP (Play), RA, Colossus, Gypsy, SD2, VOP, Pianos (PLAY), Choirs, and maybe a few I can't think of. I use them all every day. Love them. Well, I use choirs the least. I just can't really make them sound like I want. Somewhat disappointed in that one, but the rest I love. Also love the IK stuff. It's tons cheaper, but particularly love the "Sonic Synth 2" program. Also use their miroslav. Some of the sounds are really solid there, and very easy to use.
But again, I don't have a REAL piano! LOL. Wish I did. But could think of a million things to drop the cash into other than that, like a new 8-core (running a g5 still).
Sorry for the novel. We should get together sometimes. We're both gear junkies. Isn't everyone here, though?
