Personal Information

  • Biography
    I was born at a very young age. I single-handedly defeated the demon Mephistopheles when I was 2 months old, I was a sextuple Ph.D by age 3, by the time I turned 5 I had mastered 36 languages, most of which archeologists haven't even discovered evidence of yet. When I was 9 I took an IQ test, and I was so far off the charts that the test broke. Not the answer sheet or computer or anything, the test itself broke. I once recited every digit of pi. These days I like to travel to distant universes to converse with aliens living lightyears away while listening to smooth jazz.

  1. hello peoples, I'm back for a quick question - I just got an EHX 2880 (which is excellent) and am looking to get a MIDI foot controller for it. The forum search has failed me (I'm sure I remember some foot controllers being recommended somewhere...) so, I'm looking for the cheapest one that won't crap out unless I actively try to destroy it. something like http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Rocktron-All-Access-MIDI-Foot-Controller?sku=155690#new except with less buttons and 10-20% of the price would be ideal, although the only reasonable-looking thing I've found in my price range so far is this http://keyboards-midi.musiciansfriend.com/product/Behringer-FCB1010-MIDI-Footcontroller-?sku=182469#new Any thoughts on the quality of the Behringer? How programmable is it? I needs to be able to send CC# 102-105 at a minimum, and 108-112 as well would be ideal, all at data range 127. Alternatively, being able to send Program Change messages 80-110 would also work fine.
  2. What about the RC-2? It doesn't sound like you need any of the complex looper functions.
  3. PX-110. I think it's been replaced by a newer model though. It's the second from the bottom of the Privia line.
  4. If you're trying to learn piano, then I doubly recommend the Privia. You'll want the 88 keys, and it's an electric piano, so it has built in piano (as well as a few other) sounds. The speakers are pretty shitty though, so you'll want to use the 3.5 mm jack for headphones or external speakers to make use of the sounds. Doesn't have any knobs or faders though.
  5. Keystations are pretty bad in my experience. And sure, the Privia isn't a dedicated controller, but the MIDI is fine (not user friendly? What??), and $400 is pretty rock-bottom for any decently weighted keys. I did plenty of research before buying, with the intention of using it primarily as a controller.
  6. I use a Casio Privia something-or-another that I got for $400. 88 fairly nicely weighted (but not graded) keys. I would recommend it.
  7. The reversed orientation looks bad to me though, however I believe you said that was the client's intent.
  8. I somewhat agree; the vocals were hit and miss for me, sometimes they worked well, but sometimes they just sounded off to me.
  9. I just downloaded an mp3 of Christian Bale's rant at some lights guy today. It's pretty hilarious, and I think I'll be able to do something fun with it.
  10. Why is it that all the titles for different chiptune things seem to be ______ vs. ______?
