- Korg Pa588 – The Pa588 88-key arranger keyboard gives you great sound quality, incredible flexibility, and different modes that make it easy to use for beginners, while still allowing full functionality for experts. Korg’s Real eXperience technology delivers the audio quality, while 88 hammer-action keys make for a very natural feel. With great Korg features such as the XDS Dual Sequencer, 320 preloaded Styles, an intuitive TouchView interface, and a 4-way joystick for realistic articulation, the Pa588 is a winner! Based on the EDS (Extended Definition Synthesis) engine found in the Korg M3, you get 80 voices of polyphony, and over 880 fully editable sounds (including a full GM soundset and 56 drumkits). The Pa588 offers four stereo processors offering a treasure trove of effects, from rich reverbs and dazzling delays to guitar-type modeling effects – 124 different effects in all, plus separate 3-band EQ on each track!
- TASCAM VL-A4 – If you’re settling for a set of consumer-grade speakers for your audio workstation or compact studio, you’re simply not getting the full effect of your music. That’s why TASCAM stepped in and introduced the VL-A4 35-watt monitors! Sweetwater priced at just $149.97 for a pair, these are a great value for the project studio – and particularly for desktop playback from your Mac or PC! Their 4-inch, 2-way reference design makes them especially suited to environments where desk space is at a premium. (Isn’t it always?) Likewise, the deeper cabinets with bass porting gives them an extended low end that’s adequate for mixing many styles of music without adding a subwoofer. TRS/XLR combination inputs also give you the flexibility you need in connections, and magnetic shielding keeps your other equipment from interfering with your bi-amped VL-A4s.
- Roland GW-8 – This 61-key keyboard workstation updates the GW-Series with even more features for the performing musician, like intelligent backing tracks for fast song-writing – each style has multiple intros, main patterns, and ending progressions across a wide span of genres. Plus, once you start composing a song, you can easily lay it out using the onboard 16-track sequencer. Play back tracks from USB flash memory onstage, and enjoy full-on performance control via the expressive D BEAM. The onboard sounds are fueled by Roland’s flagship 128-voice sound engine derived from the renowned Fantom-X series. The GW-8 also includes a wealth of backing styles to suit virtually any genre, with a particular focus on Latin American styles. It’s surprisingly affordable, too!
- JBL EON518S – Need to move some air? Shake the walls? Knock some plaster from the ceiling? This 500-watt powered 18-inch subwoofer puts plenty of low end on tap for all your live sound needs. The shockingly compact, lightweight (65 lbs.) design features a JBL Differential Drive low-frequency driver with a neodymium magnet for high performance, so it won’t break your back – or your budget! Powered by an efficient Class-D power amp, this sub includes a built-in, switchable high-pass filter, “daisy chain” connections for adding other speakers, and a polarity reverse selector. Built road-tough, EON is synonymous with portability: One person can lift, load, and mount an EON system virtually anywhere. Deep-welled, full-size handles feature ergonomically designed grip points, while balanced weight distribution and composite enclosures make this one of the lightest and easiest sound reinforcement systems to transport and setup.
