Roland MC-307

A groovebox with an ugly 90's look and cheap component sound. However, the workflow is extremely well-thought out and if you tweak it the right way it will win your heart over forever. My favorite toy no matter how cheesy it sounds.

500 Series Version of the original DBX 160A. It's virtually the same unit based off the original schematic. This unit really shines on bass and drums. The over easy function also add a nice compression curve when needed.

Korg Volca Beats

Small, fun drum machine with a lot of power packed in. 6 Analog drums 4 PCM samples. The PCM sounds are decent. The kick drum is the highlight and the snare is the weak link of the analog drums. The snare sounds better with a shorter decay and a clap layered over it. All-in-all a worthwhile device.

A versatile, full-featured, and excellent sounding mono synth that is also capable of convincing 4-note polyphony if needed. This is the first new mono that truly cured my GAS for the vintage synths I used to own and sold long ago, like the old SCI Pro One.

This pair of microphones offers a very clean, clear and crisp sound. Sound leans more towards the bright side, but overall sound is fairly balanced. I have mainly used it on acoustic guitar, which it seems well suited for. Possible good match for drum overheads and cymbals.

How can a midi controller be interesting enough to write a Gearslutz review? I wouldn't have thought this possible... but the Nektar Panorama is worth a minute. The integration alone will improve your DAW workflow... and that's critical for me.
