40 at last! I feel a certain sense of achievement at reaching the next milestone in our series - not that it means anything particular - I'm sure 50 or 100 will be more portentious. But it brightened up my day, so you can allow me a small "yippee!" This week is the first post MESSE podcast, so we dedicate this episode to talk of things that were announced at the show. Joining me on the virtual Sonic State sofa - or couch if you're in the US - are PJ Tracy from Minneapolis in the US - a composer and experienced musician/studio owner, Dave Spiers instrument designer and musician from the prestigious software house - GForce Software and also Mark Tinley - long time engineer and sound artist with Duran Duran amongst others. Topics this week are: Chris Stone and Audio Impressions DVZ instruments, John Bowen's Solaris synth, Jazz Mutant's Dexter DAW control personallity for the touchscreen, Akai's MPK 49 and keyboards with good action (or not), Roland's latest affordable V-Drum kit, drum libraries in general, TC's latest effects pedals, KORE2 and more. Note We're taking a break from recording next week but will be posting our interview with John Bowen to plug the gap. Remember...

Re: V-Drums - the sounds are *not* physical models, they are samples. Mostly done by Spectrasonics.

The "modelling" part of the V-Drums is "COSM", which is DSP processing on the samples to change eq/pitch/tone etc to kind of approximate changing modelling parameters, but *all* the sounds are samples, and the is no drum physical modelling at all. It's a popular misconception with the V-Drums stuff.

And yes, playing a decent drum sample library from the pads sounds *way* *way* better than the internal V-Drums sounds, which are pretty bad....

Love the podcast though, chaps!

Thanks for the great podcasts! Just wanted to clarify that the Timbaland plagiarism controversy was over a song originally composed by a Finnish person, not Swedish. :D

Heres a useful 2 min comparison: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2JjPFd7Jr8
