NAMM 2011 Roundup

Post by synnack » Thu Jan 13, 2011 2:58 am

I know it hasn't started yet (in a few hours I guess) and we already have a lengthy thread about Ableton at NAMM, but here's one to start reporting on what other new stuff gets announced.

So far it seems like these two things will get press at NAMM.

Looks like a big iPad theme so far.

Yecch.

So far, I find this much more interesting, and I wish Ableton would follow suit.

I've started using FL Studio again b/c of all the cool compositional stuff it has. At the end of the day the music is what's most important to me...not how many ways I can glitch something up.

Ditto. But intonation (aka note-by-note tuning) has been an important issue since at least the 18th century, and I am happy to see it coming into the electronic-music mainstream.

Absolutely. That new feature makes me lust hard for a Moog Phatty/Slim Phatty

Arturia - $599 MSRP (as you said). Not sure on the dongle yet (they informed me they were "thinking" about doing away with those and going software license only).

M-Audio Venom is $499. Not sure if anyone else here wants to try this out, but it could be interesting.

New DSI is an analog drum machine, the Tempest. See here: http://www.davesmithinstruments.com/news/tempest.php The video is great!

I'm digging that layout with the big push button knob, pad+sequencer buttons, dedicated knobs above the pads. Pretty sweet. However the packaging/housing are ugly to me. Seems like a fair price though.

Seems kinda like Maschine with a built-in synth (not a bad thing)

I'm really curious about the Tempest price. It sounds great.
