During the rest of the show we met many wonderful people. Dave Smith is always a pleasure to talk to and the Evolver (and now the Poly Evolver) is a great product. Roger Linn was next door to Dave Smith (as last year) making that area of the show a popular place (although the bottle bar and Caribbean food cafe may have contributed to that). There were many impressive booths this year. The big three, Korg Yamaha and Roland had their normal palatial displays.
Emagic Apple had big booths with Apple having some many of their 23" cinema displays (drool). Apple took us on a wild goose chase to find the press briefing. Eventually when we got there they wouldn't let us take any pictures or discuss the products they were previewing which is a shame as they had some great technology. The best booth was that of the Propellerheads. It was reminiscent of a dingy European nightclub.
This year we did little partying - just too busy. But we did find time on Saturday night to catch up with Nigel and Kerry Spencer of Synth Zone. They are very friendly and fun and we spent all night drinking and talking with them.
The last get together of the show was our farewell to Albert till next year. This was held at the "fabulous" Red Robin in Anaheim (alright everywhere else was full). We bumped into the Propellerheads and James Bernard their star demonstrator.
