This week's show is our slightly late post NAMM post mortem. Last week was a write-off due to illness and jetlag etc, although PJ Tracy kindly filed his own podcast report, which I can thoroughly recommend. This week I'm joined by our first studio guest of the year in the form of Oz Owen - ex editor of Future Music in the UK and now PR consultant for many of the top brands. Dave Spiers from GFORCE Software - fresh from the launch of the M-Tron Pro at NAMM, PJ Tracy - in sub-zero Minneapolis (-26C!!!) who had the pleasure of his first NAMM visit and a quick entry from Noneric from Musotalk.de - the German vodcast site based in Berlin. It's kind of freeform - in that we had no fixed agenda this week, only to discuss the show, the highlights and any other ramblings. Remember... Do Call Us We’ve set up a Skype account for people to leave comments (which may be played on subsequent episodes) or requests to be considered for a part on the show.

In response to the Native Instruments thread, they are basically biting chunks into their bottom line by making their material more accessible to users. Demand increases as price drops.

They probably just need more funding for their current projects. Its like when a company issues more stock. I try to ignore it.

Thank you all for your excellent efforts.

Any word on the Tenori-on release in the USA from your pals at Yamaha?

Great podcast! Concerning the new Kore soundpacks, I think it's marvellous stuff. I own Kore 2 and I got the Electric Organ and the Reaktor soundpack and they are great tasters for the complete versions of the software. Also, considering the 8 sound variations per 'preset' and the Kore 2 basic editing functions you can actually tweak them quite considerably and play them very expressively. Considering the width of the NI product pallette, going in-depth with attention to accessability of their products and ease of use, NI's new direction makes perfect sense to me.

Good to hear the show has so many fans too, you guys do a great job!

Kurzweil K2500 has actually allowes using live input in a buffer. you can choose the live input as the sound source for any algorithim. that means you can reverse it, filter, waveshape, etc., while having full polyphonic control over the sound and it's pitch from the keyboard. Given the available 48 voices, you can do all of these things simultaneously, segregated into different zones of the keyboard, if you wish, all within a single multi-layer patch.
