Very cool! I grabbed it and have been playing with it the past hour :)

Also did a little poking around and found a demo of the Z1 that is at least a bit better than those others: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoVFvQu902g

I see the Andromeda A6 gets fairly prominent placement in your new studio. You must be happy with it.

Yes! I've had it for a week now as part of my "bring back the real analog synths" promotion :) also, the Prophet 08.

Sure sounds sweet! The other keyboard stand not pictured will mount the much maligned OB-12, and the forever nutty FIZMO. All the keyboard synths with most of the knobs get direct attention. The others could be swapped in if necessary or sit in another room attached to audio and MIDI if the sonics warranted it. Considering the synths though... Not likely. The rest will go rack mount in the 28U by 3 rack I will assemble, in place, once the room is finished. Although it has casters to move it around, I am not confident it will fit through the zigzag vocal booth entry.

Btw I did score an eventide Orville, and two Kurzweil KSP8's (with RSP8 and HUB7 and two analog 4port expansion cards :) 16 independent DSP channels!).

if you listen to pop music for the last 15 years nobody has really had to be able to sing. it's all fixed in the mix with software/hardware. nevertheless, as unlikely as i would subject anyone to my tone deaf carping, i would be less likely to impose those methods as well. :)

in other news, 'vocal booth' is the generic term putting any small enclosed area to work that would otherwise be wasted, such as a short hall that serves as both an airlock to double door isolate two rooms is useful for close mic-ing of voice work. 'mic booth' is probably more appropriate to my projects. 'vocal' isn't always singing either as seems to be the modern usage. i am so sick of the auto-tuned, pitch corrected, micro-edited, software production sound.

just finished stuffing all my extra rigid fiberglass scraps inside the speak soffits. thanks heavens for nitrile gloves! the build should be completed within the week! very exciting!

i've also ended up with one more Lexicon 224 than i need. the first one was DOA, needs recapping, etc... the second one is fine. I'll debug the broken one with the known good one, and the help of schematics and the service manual (thank you mr. internet!). if anyone's interested in a a re-serviced vintage digital reverb (the First!) it'll be ready in a couple of months; $1,500 USD firm.

I was expecting a real crooner old school style. :/

I thought you would be in to the modern computerized sounds, with all the synthesizers and computers and stuff in there....

I'm not opposed to any types of music except hip hop, rap, and most modern pop.

Though obviously not widely recognized, Droll Humor would be a prime example.

Possibly Oskar doesn't hang out with little school girls ....

Me, on the other hand ...

hangin' out by the schoolyard gate
lookin' up every dress I can
fillin' the front of my shirt with drool ...
I'm a dirty old man
dirty old man, dirty old man ...

Not exactly the professional definition I'd expected from you, though :-)
