Had a brilliant jam this evening

Despite being under the weather a bit at present (was in bed half the day feeling sorry for myself) after some sleep and a few hot drinks I made it over to my mates' place this evening and we had a productive jam. Perked me right up!

It was the first outing for the Summit, and as a bonus I got to lay hands on the Waldorf Quantum as well (what a very interesting device that is). Video/audio to follow at some point once the mysterious processes that video editors go through have been completed.

For the curious, the yellow glove is a safety device to prevent bashing into a metal rod that was supporting the OB-6 on the top tier of the stand ;)

I was going to take an SY85 as the second synth but as I'm in 'wimp' mode at the moment I grabbed the OB-6 instead as it's lighter and smaller. As it turned out, it was a good choice but the SY85 is going to have its day at a future session.

Yes, I noticed that straight away, they need a Moog Modular, get on the case immediately.
Moog modulars don't even need playing, they just create good wallpaper for everything else.

:D

Oh wow Eddy that does look fun. It would pick me up too! In fact they ought to prescribe it on the NHS :thumbup:

Looking forward to the AV, I recall your last one, you’re a tight bunch.

My formative organ playing as a youngster was upon a wonderful L122 through a 147. I’ve never managed to equal the sound. Getting it to the rehearsal room on just the one occasion proved too much for the band I played in and we Pressed a Yamaha SK10 organ/string machine into organ duties afterwards which cheesed me off no end :headbang:

The System 55 is out of shot ... we didn't use it on this one.

Thanks ... we did something completely new this time. A short piece of music largely improvised around a chord sequence agreed up front. it'll be interesting to see how the video comes out :-)

You're closer to reality there than you might think!

Except of course in place of the dogs you have highly trained attack hamsters.

Sourcing the mini rocket launchers for their backs was tricky. Fitting them was worse, but overall I'd say it was time well spent.

Ah, I didn't recognise it as a Hammond without yellowed keys, missing keys, oil stains down the front and knife marks in the woodwork! :mrgreen:

Just goes to show how much one Yoshimi PI can do ;-)

Seriously, I'm very excited to get the Yoshimi appliance tomorrow. It's going to be a huge asset for this kind of thing!
