Simplicity and flexibility without compromise. This MOTIF-RACK XS comes loaded with plenty of presets and is absolutely ready to rock out of the box. The quick category search feature is absolutely genius! You can... Read more »

REVIEW: BOSS DB-90

As a musician, you need a metronome. It's a fact of life. Personally, I've had a simple, basic metronome that I picked up years ago while I was in grad school studying music composition, with classical guitar as my... Read more »

Yamaha MO6 Review

The MO6 is a full scale workstation with the versatility to be used as a stand-alone sequencer, live keyboard, or an addition to a computer based system. The first thing that caught my attention when I opened the... Read more »

Use Audio Plugiator Review

Mojave Audio MA-100 Review

It doesn't matter what you put the MA-100 on, it sounds great, and from the first time you open the sleek silver case, you'll realize that the investment that you've made in the microphone will pay for itself over... Read more »

REVIEW: Line 6 Spider IV

I've been using Line 6 gear since the company opened its doors. From the original POD to a POD Pro, from Amp Farm to Echo Farm, and finally to my current M13 (which I absolutely love as a grab-it-and-go pedalboard)... Read more »

REVIEW: Sonuus G2M

There seem to be two broad classes of electric guitarists: those who find their sound and stick with it and those who endlessly experiment with pedals, amps, guitars, and other gear in search of a broad palette of... Read more »

Moog Etherwave Standard Theremin Review

When I brought home the Moog Etherwave Theremin, I could hardly contain my excitement. Not only had I heard the Theremin on countless records, but also in countless old cheesy sci-fi films. So to get my hands on (or... Read more »

Korg M50-61 Review

The first thing that I really loved about the Korg M50 was the ease of use and the beats and sounds that come out when you use the Combi programs. I played it without reading the manual, and it was easy with the... Read more »

REVIEW: IK Multimedia StealthPedal

  You're a guitar player, right? If you wanted to be a recording engineer, then you'd be one! But being a guitar player doesn't mean you don't want to make great recordings of your music. So, wouldn't it be... Read more »

Moog Little Phatty Stage II Review

The Little Phatty is a bit deceiving out of the box. It's a relatively small and lightweight unit, almost seeming like a toy. But the build quality is great and the keys have a nice feel to them. The I/O of the unit... Read more »

Yamaha MOTIF-RACK XS Review

The emergence of the "refined" keyboard workstation in the late 1990s opened up a whole new set of doors for musicians everywhere. Not only was the sound quality impeccable, but the multi-voicing and sequencing... Read more »

Roland SPD-S Sampling Pad Review

Throughout my career as a keyboardist and occasional music director, I've always been the one in the band charged with responsibility to figure out how to recreate an artist's recordings in a live situation. Once... Read more »

Kurzweil PC3X Review

Before opening the box of the PC3X I imagined becoming intimidated by gadgets and lights. I guess when I hear the term "workstation" I have a preconceived notion that I will need to spend days just to figure out how... Read more »

Korg M3 73 Review

Imagine carrying a long cardboard box into your home, opening it and pulling from it the control panel from the cockpit of a space shuttle. That was my first experience with the Korg M3-73. With the touch of a few... Read more »

Mackie U.420 Review

The Mackie U.420 is a great little 4-channel stereo line mixer, but there's a lot more under the hood! Out of the box, I was impressed with the construction and feel of the mixer. The knobs in the audio chain are... Read more »

Fender Road Worn Jazz Bass Review

Like a lot of players I know, I'd always hoped to come across an old Fender that had that "old school" look and sound. When Fender introduced their Road Worn series, a 3-color sunburst Jazz caught my eye. Could this... Read more »
