Hahaha I'll post some next week, haven't figured out how to get it on my ipad, from my old camera.
I'm starting to get the feel for this place. It's very hot and humidity is 95% but once you've sweated out every drop you got the fun starts.
The sea and the rain are so clean!
I'm a bit concerned about crime and humidity (gear).

How much gear did you bring with you?
I think bringing gear to the Caribbean on vacation and worring about the humidity may may be the sluttiest thing I have ever heard. Lol.

I'm on the dutch side of St. Maarten/St. Martin eastern leyward Islands.

I'd planned to take the MPC with Entrainer's samples, or the EMU mp-7, but was so busy fixing a few problems just before I left so I only could grab some clothes, and my ipad.

There's one professional studio here I was told.

Personally, I can't stand the heat. If I wanted to leave everything, I'd go back to Khorogh, Tajikistan. Not a lot of places to satisfy your gear lust nearby, mind, but the climate and people there are amazing. Not to mention the mutton...

how much what? nekked wimin?
honestly I wouldn't know, I have my hands full with one caribbean woman.

I was hoping for someone chiming in, perhaps there are NO synthesizers at all over there. Lots of music (modern caribbean) from Jamaica, Trinidad, St. Kitts even. Google "Soca" and "Calypso".
There's a music school on St. Martin (on the french side) but they're into steel drums and other traditional instruments.

See, this is why every Gearslut needs a field recorder.

Imagine all the exotic stereo samples you can record - and on the actual spot! Once you get home, only job left is to do the trimming, cutting, looping, remixing and processing. Basically, almost like a free sample CD ROM.

These drummers above are sort of a "commercial" stuff, but i'm sure during the break you can buy them a sixpack, give something like 100-130bpm hand claps and ask for "drums only" (without the cheesy melody). In return you get a load of free exotic drum breaks & loops for your tracks.
